Fear and depression

I am suffering very much from panic attacks and depression.

I would very much appreciate your prayers.

Thank you so much.

Lord have mercy.

I'm so sorry to hear it.

May the Lord grant that you realize that you are loved not only by those around you, but, by Him...and may He help you realize your potential, your true worth, and grant you comfort and a sense of security.

Lord, have mercy!!!
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!
Pray to Saint Porphyrios of Kafsokalyvia,they say that he helps a lot with mental illness. :)
You might also need help with antistress pills or try valeriana herb if you want it.
No matter what you did and decide to do I really hope that God will heal you permanetly! :)

I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

Lord, have mercy!
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom
