Starting to fast, pray for me
« on: October 31, 2012, 03:38:46 PM »
After I returned to my parish from my long absence,  I have started the standard weekly fasting (wednesday and friday).  My first meal of the day was from the asian bar at work which was brown rice with shrimp and vegetables.

Please pray for me,  it can get very tempting at work especially when you see others what they eat.

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.
