prayer request :)
« on: April 17, 2006, 04:08:15 PM »
hello everyone...

just wanted to ask for prayer...

dh and I are in a rough situation with some family members and I am dealing with much anger--it is really hard. please pray for my own repentance and for God's mercy on me and my family...please pray that God will bless those that have hurt me and give them what they need.

also, i am moving across country bright week, and we have lots of financial stuff going on. dh needs a job. :) i know God will sustain our needs, but i tend to worry about things a lot.

thank you! may He shine His face upon you all...

Of course I'll be happy to pray for you and your loved ones, hoping that the move will go well and that your anxiety will be reduced.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Prisca,   May the Lord have mercy on you and your family.  There is no better time than now to pray for repentence and go to confession before Holy Pascha.  

pray for me a sinner,

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have Mercy!

Your dh wouldn't happen to be an engineer of some sort would he?  they are hiring all the time where I am.  I could use some other Orthodox women around me!
Not so subtle hint there :)
