Prayers
« on: August 12, 2013, 05:26:14 PM »
Please pray for me, as I'm having to finally throw in the towel and go seek some professional help again for my PTSD and depression. I thought I was doing OK since I am away from my children's father but the whole looming legal stuff that causes me to have contact with him again has pretty much sent me back to the dumpsters mentally, to the point that I'm basically having flashbacks and emotional breakdowns.

I am sorry Rebecca. Hope that Lord reliefs you. His will be done.

There is no luck, there is no fate. There are always two ways. One is God's and one is devil's. And in each step of your life you have to pick one, always.

Lord have mercy.

St. Raphael, pray for us.
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.
