Prayers for Rafael
« on: February 07, 2013, 03:29:56 PM »

Rafael is suffering greatly. 

Please pray that God show him mercy and grants him physical and spiritual healing.

Please also pray for his mother - Elda, who is recovering from cancer.

Lord have mercy upon Rafael and Elda, and grant them both a complete recovery!
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 on Rafael and Elda
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.'


Selam
"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."
