For the OCA as it convenes its Sobor/Special Council in Parma
« on: November 12, 2012, 03:38:46 PM »
Please remember in your prayers our brothers and sisters in the Orthodox Church in America as they being their special Sobor to elect a new Primate/Metropolitan. As they begin their pre-Nativity journey through Advent this week, may the protection of the Theotokos be upon them and may they remember in their prayers the Prince of Peace, the Son of God for whose Nativity the journey to the cave in Bethlehem begins following the Sobor. May their deliberations be conducted in a Christ-like manner, may they lay aside their passions, their hard feelings and their fear.  Snami Boh! God is with Us! Lord, have mercy.

May the delegates rise to their feet at the end and proclaim Axios! with a true heart, mind and soul!

Lord Have mercy. Gospodi Pomilui, Kyrie Eleison x40!
God, please grant the OCA a wise and discerning metropolitan, to compensate for his predecessors mistakes, provide for Metropolitan Jonah, HB Herman, and also Theodosius, Archbishop of Washington and New York, Metropolitan of All America and Canada, and let the Synod be loyal to the new First Hierarch of the American Church.

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.
