Holy Father Patrick, thank you for your help!

Hello all!

I would again like to ask as many as are able to pray for me.

In the next few days, several people may be deciding my future, and by extension the future of my wife and children. I do not pray that any particular decision be 'made', but just that I learn to trust in God and His Church that the decision these people make is the will of God for me and my family. In this way, I hope to be able to accept the decision without any anguish or concern, and can plan as well as I can my life and what to do next.

Thank you!

Prayers for the needs of you & family.


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.

With all due respect -- this is untrue. Unless you are being marched off to prison, YOU are in charge of YOUR and YOUR family's future. People external to you can only have a temporary impact on YOUR future.

Stop being a VICTIM and take control of what is yours.

I will pray my chotki for you right now.  Peace.

Tom, with all due respect, there are things that are out of our control--acceptance into graduate programs, illnesses, car accidents...  Need I give a full list?  Asking for prayer to accept God's will is a sign of faith and spiritual maturity, not of weakness or a victim mentality.  When people are asking for prayer that is not the time for, albeit well-intentioned, tough love.

We all pray Our father and we say You Will Be Done...

The "problem" with His will is that sometimies it is not the way we want Him to will.

I am with my mate from Oz, George, You will be done!

Brothers and sisters, I think that it is very dangerous to ask God to do something so that we might have faith.

I know that is not the case here, I just wanted to say it.

Whatever we do, faith first-results later.

May God lead us all to pray for what Chris is praying for.

Help us O Lord to be like small children and to take you into our rocky hearts so that you will be done in our lives as it is on heaven.
For Your glory and only Your glory.
Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, have mercy on me, the sinner.
God bless us all!
