All ye Saints, pray to God for me a sinner.


« on: July 15, 2014, 01:01:22 AM »

I you could please pray for me. Since I started my new job about of month ago, my spiritual life has been in ruins. I've been struggling for nearly two months now, but since I started working this particular job things have really begun to spiral out of control to the point where I feel like I've hit rock bottom.

I want to turn back to God, but I'm beginning to feel hopeless.

Lord have mercy!

Try to see it as fire burning off dross, tempering steel.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy on your servant!

Remember who is Master, is something my experience would advise.

Lord have mercy.. I feel the same about the spiritual life (hopeless) especially after watching that movie "Vanilla Sky" consulting myself and remembering everything I investigated about spirituality.

If your spiritual life was beyond repair, you wouldn't be on here requesting prayers.

Lord have mercy! May God bless you!
