Please pray for me
« on: June 22, 2014, 12:01:32 AM »
Over the past year I gained a lot and have now pretty much lost it all.  It's no exaggeration, I've literally lost everything.  I've worked so hard since I was 16 and in a few unexpected circumstances and since January have to start all over.  Because of my pride and embarrassment, I've lost contact with friends and have nobody to go through this with me.  I'm in a pretty bad spot and feel despondent, seeing no way out of this dark hole.  It's getting darker, too.  I find it so hard to turn to God because I feel as though I'm being ignored.  Yet another 'test'.  I have vices and have fallen into them in my sinful way of trying to cope with the crippling depression and anxiety that has plagued me since losing my job and everything that came with it.

Please mention me in your daily prayers and if you think of it, during Divine Liturgy.  I don't know if God's all that interested in helping me but maybe he'll listen to some of you.

Lord, have mercy on Hamartolos.
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.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

I will pray for you.  I do not have means to do too much for you, but if you let me know what you need, I will do what I can.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Lord, have mercy.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

Lord have mercy on your servant. Deliver him from his tribulations.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.
