Please pray for me
« on: January 30, 2013, 07:23:00 PM »
I have been struggling now with temptations of the flesh and recently I committed a very grave sin for which I am very ashamed. I ask you, my brothers and sisters in Christ, please pray for me that I can be stronger to resist any future attacks from the enemy.

Lord, have mercy on your servant, Anthony.

welcome to the forum my brother. may the Lord strengthen all of us.
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Thank you to all for the prayers and after confessing the other day, I feel as if the world was lifted off my shoulders! Praise be to our Lord always now and forever!

Amen!!!!

Good to hear!

May the Lord grant you strength to thwart all future temptations.
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.
