prayers for a dying man
« on: November 26, 2012, 02:51:22 PM »
Please pray for Nathaniel, a parishioner at St. John the Wonderworker parish in Eugene, OR. He has been battling cancer and  I just saw a message from his daughter on FB that he probably only has a week or two left to live. I had the pleasure of meeting him this summer and he struck me as a very pious and humble man who is taking his illness for his salvation. Lord have mercy!

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.
