Prayers for a re-conversion
« on: March 13, 2006, 09:34:03 AM »
Dear friends,

I see how responsive our community is to prayer here and I wanted to enter my own bidding on behalf of a person who was raised Orthodox but then fell away from the church.

Please pray for the servant of God Helena, that she may return to a life in the church and a life in the sacraments after a long absence. I can tell she is distressed deep inside and is spiritually thirsty. Perhaps, she will be fortunate enough to co-celebrate the Paschal joy with the rest of us this Easter.

Thank you for your prayers, and may the Lord grant all of you your petitionings!

Lord, have mercy on her, and on us all!

Lord, please lead Helena to Your Truth.

And please do the same for all of us here on Earth.

Prayers...

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.

Lord, have mercy.
