Prayers for a Muslim lady seeking Orthodoxy
« on: June 30, 2005, 09:28:38 AM »
I was recently introduced to a lady who was formerly a Roman Catholic and who converted to Islam when she married her Pakistani husband. She has since then deeply regretted her decision to convert and for some reason she has been attracted to the Orthodox Church and has been inquiring into how she may convert. The probiem is not only with her husband, but the fact she has children with the man also who are currently being raised Muslim.

Please remember her in your prayers; they are much needed,

Peace.

Kyrie Eleison


By coincidence, or by Divine Intervention, I have a muslim friend from Europe who is really looking into Orthodoxy as well.  Please keep him in your prayers also.  His wife is Roman Catholic, and he's been studying into both, with a lasting interest in the Orthodox Church.

Prayers please a well.

God help them.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Certainly, I will pray that both these people are guided towards His Church.

Amazing stories of conversions like the story of St. Bolos Ibn El-Ragaa (El-Wade7 Ibn El-Ragaa) and St.Niquam the Martyr might help such cases and those who pray for them in understanding the extent of God's grace and mercy for those who seek Him with all their hearts.
In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (Isaiah 19:19)
