Prayers for newly conceived child...
« on: January 22, 2013, 04:13:23 PM »

A devout Orthodox couple (E and C) who are two months pregnant ask for prayers, that God should bless the family with a healthy little addition.

This is their first child, and they are rather nervous.

May the Lord grant them a joyous time of expectation....may the child grow healthy and strong, may the mother also remain healthy and have an uneventful pregnancy, and may the father have the strength, patience and wisdom to support his growing family.

Lord, have mercy!
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

Amen
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Lord have mercy on them.  :)
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.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
