A final prayer request
« on: August 19, 2012, 10:11:14 PM »
I know that I have asked for your prayers many times but it seems that God has not answered them. My situation has become so bad that I am at this point forced to move to Egypt, where I will live on the streets and beg for food. It is like that verse in the Bible that says 'the Lord did not answer him either by urim or by prophets or by dreams' and 'he cried out, but there was none to save, even to the Lord but He did not answer.'

Please pray for me that God help me in this new lifestyle and that he open my eyes to see what is the sin that is in me for which He afflicts me.

From my youth have many passions warred against me, but do Thou Thyself defend and save me, O Saviour.

May the Lord ease your situation and help you overcome whatever obstacle is ahead of you. Is there anything anyone can do to help you?
Do not want things to turn out as they seem best to you, but as God pleases. Then you will be free from confusion, and thankful in prayer.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord, have mercy!

I second the question....is there anything we can do to help you?
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Well, a quick look at loser's profile informs us that he/she last posted on September 23 and hasn't been active since. If at all possible, I'd be interested in some kind of update as well.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
