Prayers for a friend
« on: February 12, 2005, 02:23:20 PM »
Please keep a friend of mine in your prayers, she has asked that I not give out her name, but she wanted me to pray for her and ask others to pray for her as well. She's going through a divorce right now and she is feeling very confused about a lot of different things. All I can say right now is that she is an Orthodox Christian. Thankyou for your prayers.

In Christ,
"Whoever climbs to the top in life, achieving earthly goals, whether he likes it or not, will bring upon himself both blessings and curses"
--to St Nektarios and his siblings said by his father in his childhood.

Lord, have mercy. 
"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

Prayers for direction in a difficult situation.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
