For the sick, my friend, and myself

For all of the sick and impoverished throughout the world, Lord have mercy.
For my good friend Athena who supports me through my conversion.
For myself, a miserable, hypocritical, lustful and foolish neophyte.

Christ, our God, save us.
Holy Theotokos, intercede.
St. Mark of Ephesus pray for us.
Holy Father John Chrysostom, intercede for me!
That map ialmisry posted just makes me want to play Crusader Kings II.

Lord, have mercy upon us all.
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. Lord, have mercy. 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.

Lord, have mercy.
Some of my questions might appear patently stupid to those well-versed in Orthodoxy, but I'm brand new, having no background in the faith.  Please grant me a great deal of patience and consideration as I learn the basics.
