Prayers to end Protestant "evangelization" of her friend
« on: April 10, 2013, 02:16:28 AM »
A Baptist girl I know has a Catholic friend who she wants to "save" from those weird ideas like praying to the saints and confessing sins to a priest.

I'd hate for this girl's friend to get bashed over the head about her beliefs (Canadian Catholics aren't generally well catechised, so it's doubtful she'll be able to fight back) by someone who seems to have no interest in learning about more historical, and thus more correct, forms of Christianity. Even worse would be if the Catholic girl turns into another raving low-church Protestant, hostile to all the good things in Catholicism that we Orthodox can affirm.

On the weekend I tried to do my part to prevent a disaster from happening. Suffice it to say, I'm afraid I've made things worse. (Too complicated to explain.)

It may seem strange for me to make this request on OC. But I'd like to ask you all to pray that (1) God will bring a lot of good out of this situation even with my possible screw-up, (2) the Catholic girl won't be led astray into a Mary/saints-ignoring, sacraments-scorning sect, and (3) the Baptist girl will discover Orthodoxy sooner rather than later.

Lord have mercy!  By the prayers of the saints may these girls be brought to the fullness of the gospel.

Encourage these girls to pray for each other if you can.

May the Lord comfort and edify them.

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

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.
