Prayer for my spiritual negligence
« on: November 02, 2012, 12:31:27 AM »
I haven't been to a Sunday liturgy in a while (pretty sad considering how much time I netodox around on forums, maybe I have an Internet addiction). I also have not consistently been praying daily.
Apart from moral conduct, all that man thinks himself able to do in order to become acceptable to God is mere superstition and religious folly. - Immanuel Kant

Lord Have Mercy. Try to get yourself to attend Church at least every other Sunday. I miss a Liturgy every once in a while but I always try to not miss three in a row. If I miss one Liturgy I always make sure to go to the next one. If I miss two Liturgies, then I make it a duty to attend the next one no matter what.
Until I see the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, I will not believe.

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.

I can relate.

Lord have mercy!

Pray for me too, please.
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. -The Lord Jesus

The Saviour is made of elements which are distinct from one another yet He is not two Persons. God forbid! For both natures are one by the combination. -St. Gregory Nazianzen
