For my conversion to Orthodoxy
« on: September 11, 2012, 02:42:26 PM »
Please pray for me that I might somehow find the courage to start my conversion process to Orthodoxy. Thank you.

νὰ μὴ ζητήσουνε νὰ βροῦν ποιός ἢμουν

Lord have mercy!

PS: I thought you had already started that process, so I am praying for a successful outcome.

Starting as in actually becoming a catechumen. I'm trying to solve all the obstacles on the way one by one now. My updated thread might shed some light on where I stand now. Thank you for your prayers.

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.
