For my brother
« on: December 13, 2012, 05:03:20 PM »
I would really appreciate if you would pray for my brother. He is in a period right now where everything seems to go wrong for him. It has caused a lot of tension at home. He is planning to return to school soon. He really needs to make it work this time.

Thank you.
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

May the Lord have mercy upon your brother and lighten his burden.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy.

St. Michael, pray for us.

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.

Lord, Have mercy.

I hope that your brother will find his way again.
Remember, never to fear the power of evil more than your trust in the power and love of God.
