A Prayer Request and a Temporary Farewll
« on: February 16, 2013, 11:47:11 AM »
I don't want to get into too many details, but recently I've been having many family emergencies pop up and none of it is looking too good.  I've also got many questions I need to consider in the near future like whether or not I should go to seminary or a monastery, or if I should wait a little longer.

So I'm taking a brake from the forum, please pray for me that I may receive wisdom and pray for my family, especially my mother who just found out she has breast cancer.

Shalom

Lord have mercy!

I for one will miss you around here Pmpn8rGPT, I am sorry you are going through such difficult time. I pray that the Lord will give you and all your family a respite from it. May the Lord have mercy on your Mother, you and all your family. Please do not rush into major life changes while you are under the duress of grief and stress. both of the beautiful paths you are contemplating are to be discerned wisely with a free heart and mind, by the Grace of God. May the Protection of the Most Holy Ever Virgin Theotokos be with you my brother. May the Lord bless you , protect you and guide you. Amen.

Shallom :)

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.

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

So sorry to hear about this dear brother.

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."
