Prayer request

It may be tiring to ask it again and again, however, I really need many prayers right now because from tomorrow till the following week I have something really important to do. Please pray to God that everything will be just fine and He’ll be by myside all the time, whatever happens <3 Even one prayer means the world to me <3 God bless all of you!

Prayers please!

If you could say a prayer for me right now, “Simply Orthodox”, it would be greatly appreciated. God knows both my name and what exactly I need, and I trust Him to help me and the whole world, with the intercessions of His Mother and the Saints. So, your prayer would be a great gift for me!

Thank you all so much <3

True fast…

Let us fast an acceptable and very pleasing fast to the Lord. True fast is the estrangement from evil, temperance of tongue, abstinence from anger, separation from desires, slander, falsehood, and perjury. Privation of these is true fasting.

Thank you so much. God bless you all <3

Do not attempt…

Do not attempt to explain something difficult with contentiousness, but in the way which the spiritual law enjoins: with patience, prayer and unwavering hope.

Thank you! <3

On prayer

The chief thing in prayer for which we must care above all is—lively, clear-sighted faith in the Lord : represent Him vividly before yourself and within you—then ask of Jesus Christ in the Holy Ghost whatever you desire and you will obtain it. Ask simply, without the slightest doubt—then your God will be everything to you, accomplishing in an instant great and wonderful acts, as the sign of cross, accomplishes great wonders. Ask for both spiritual and material blessings not only for yourself, but for all believers, for the whole body of the Church, not separating yourself from other believers, but in spiritual union with them, as a member of the one great body of the Church of Christ, and loving all, as your brethren or children in Christ, as the case may be. The heavenly Father will fill you with the great peace and boldness.

O Lord, of Thy heavenly bounties, deprive me not.

O Lord, deliver me from the eternal torments.

O Lord, forgive me if I have sinned in my mind or my thought, whether in word or in deed.

O Lord, free me from all ignorance and forgetfulness, from despondency and stony insensibility.

O Lord, deliver me from every temptation.

O lord, enlighten my heart which evil desires have darkened.

O Lord, as a man have I sinned, have Thou mercy on me, as the God full of compassion, seeing the feebleness of my soul.

O Lord, send down Thy grace to help me, that I may glorify Thy name.

O Lord Jesus Christ, write me down in the book of life and grant unto me a good end.

O Lord my God, even if I had not done anything good before Thee, do Thou help me, in Thy grace, to make a good beginning.

O Lord, sprinkle into my heart the dew of Thy grace.

O Lord of heaven and earth, remember me, Thy sinful servant, full of shame and impurity, in Thy kingdom. Amen.

O Lord, receive me in penitence.

O Lord, forsake me not.

O Lord, lead me not into misfortune.

O Lord, quicken in me a good thought.

O Lord, give me tears and remembrance of death, and contrition.

O Lord, make me solicitous of confessing my sins.

O Lord, give me humility, chastity, and obedience.

O Lord, give me patience, magnanimity, and meekness.

O Lord, implant in my the root of all good—Thy fear in my heart.

O Lord, vouchsafe that I may love thee from all my soul and mind and in everything do Thy will.

O Lord, shelter me from certain men, from demons and passions, and from any other unbecoming thing.

O Lord, Thou knowest that Thou dost as Thou wilt, let then Thy will be done in me, a sinner, for blessed art Thou unto the ages. Amen.

Prayers for the weekend!

For another time, I would like to ask you to keep me in your prayers this weekend, especially on the Saturday. It’s a very stressful period for me, that me and some other people involved have to take important decisions for our future.

I don’t know many people in real life that are eager to pray for me, as you do, so I count on you! <3 God bless you all!

So let’s give him the best gift…!!!

Tomorrow, a person I wholeheartedly love will celebrate his 35th birthday. He’s someone that has helped me a lot in my life in many different ways. He’s a special person, an Orthodox Christian that spends all his time in order to promote and protect the Church. He’s a blessed man, who’s always smiling no matter the difficulties in his life. Everyone can see in his eyes his love for Christ, that he loves Him more than anything.

Propably tomorrow he’ll receive so many different and beautiful gifts and wishes, as everybody loves him.

But you can help me to give him the best gift: let’s send to him a huge amount of prayers: pray that he’ll have a happy and blessed life, he’ll always be safe and that the Lord will remember him in His Kingdom. Please help me to give him the most special gift: a huge wave of prayers. I am asking for your help <3<3 

So, Constantine, happy birthday! Have a blessed day and a blessed life, full of happiness, hope and love..!

I need prayers!

Tomorrow is an extremely important and special day for me, one of the most important of this last year. So please, everyone, keep me in your prayers tonight and tomorrow…!!! I hope everything will be fine, with God’s help and enlightment! Please pray for enlightment for me and the people involved!

Have a blessed weekend! <3

Pray for them and be meek

Do not be vexed with those who show pride, or malice, effeminacy, and impatience in their intercourse with you, or others, but , remembering that you yourself are subject to the same and greater sins and passions, pray for them and be meek with them.
