Prayers for this weekend.
« on: May 27, 2018, 08:59:15 PM »
My wife, who has heretofore shown effectively zero interest in Orthodoxy, pretty unexpectedly suggested attending a local ACROD parish this coming weekend (Sunday of All Saints). Nothing would delight me more for her to be open to Orthodoxy; her utter disinterest has been the only real impediment to me inquiring in a serious way. I ask for prayers that things will go well and that the Lord lead us where he wants us.
Woe is me, that I have read the commandments,
   and have become learned in the Scriptures,
and have been instructed in Your glories,
   and yet I have become occupied in shameful things!

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

Thanks all for prayers. It was a nice weekend. We have obligations the next two weekends, but she wants to go back to the Orthodox parish when we're back, and she has been reading about Orthodoxy. Thanks be to God!

Thank God!
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.
