prayer request from an inquirer -
« on: July 31, 2006, 08:03:49 PM »
The more I look into Orthodoxy and the more convinced I become that the Church is where I need to be, the more it seems that the evil one is attacking me from all angles: doubts, temptations, etc. etc.

Please pray for me -

May you know the love and the mercy of the true church, the one Orthodox faith.

Lord have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Of course! This should confirm to you that you are on the right path!

My prayers join all the others recited on your behalf. Just try to stay on this path, and trust in the mercy and wisdom of God---these attacks from the Evil One will ultimately beneft you once you withstand them.

Ditto to Fr. Chris.
The evil one only attacks when he has something to lose...
Jesus Christ prevails and scatters all evil.
In my prayers,
George

Hang in there.  Lord have mercy.  Above all else, just continue to pursue God.
