Hope for Married Couples Tempted to Despair
« on: September 01, 2017, 06:10:08 PM »
I am raising my heart in prayer on the behalf of all who struggle in their marital relationship, and might be tempted to adopt a despairing attitude. I pray God to use my testimony for providing some measure of hope to suffering couples. My wife and I spent a number of years in a situation that could too often have been described as more painful than joyful, yet we both remained faithful to one another... 
Blog plugging, advertising in posts other websites is not allowe. Moreover, prayer forum is only for the prayer requests and answers to them. So I removed the link.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Lord have mercy, through the prayers of the Theotokos and all the saints, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen +
'Be extremely careful not to offend anyone in word or deed, for it is a grave sin. When someone is offended, God, who loves the man, is also offended, for there can be no offending man without offending God.'

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
