The Jesus Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.


Rainbow Pastor said...

Prayers for Deb...and for LC, who I think has that appointment today...

Please, continued prayers for my congregation as we continue to struggle with what it means to be a Christian community.

And I ask prayers for me personally in my own struggle as I try to love (or least respect) every member of the congregation as well as myself.

My prayers for all of you.
I am struggling with my husband's absence and the seemingly endless string of small domestic disasters of the week. At times like this I wonder if we are living our lives the wrong way around and should reconsider where we are located or who works the regular job. I don't want to make him miserable; he is doing his part to keep the roof over our head. But I really don't do well when he is away. So I would ask for your prayers.

Mary Beth said...

Praying intently for these supplications.

I need to share my tremendous thanksgivings for the results of my meeting yesterday! Having requested prayers from this and another source made all the difference in the way I went into it. I definitely felt the support.

I posted as a follow-up yesterday that it went really well, but an announcement late in the afternoon (that I believe directly resulted from that meeting) revealed success of "infinitely more than I could have asked or imagined."

It's easy to be sure I am in the right about things, but in this case....there is unethical, immoral, and abusive behaviour going on, and I believe we are on the right track to getting it ended.

I'm very thankful for this private blog - I would never be able to write about this in a public forum!

Songbird said...

I feel the same way, Mary Beth. I'm so happy to hear things went well yesterday.

continued prayers for you rainbow pastor and your congregation.

Prayers for you songbird coping with your husband away.

Lord in your mercy hear our prayers. Christ have mercy.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Thanks Lutheran Chik

Please pray for my Grand dad PT Carlisle who is in the hospital and they are trying to figure out what is going on.

Just an update that, yes, I had my scary doctor's appointment/exam today. Good news is that my ovarian cysts went away. Bad news is that I have a very large uterine fibroid that's not doing anything but that my doctor wants to watch. So I have to have another ultrasound in another couple of months. I told her that if anything down there changes for the worse, I want it all taken out!

I'd taken the day off today...I was so wiped out from stress when I got out of my appointment that my muscles were aching from the stress, and I'd developed a killer headache. I went home and fell asleep all afternoon.

Thank you for the prayers and support.

revabi said...

Lutheranchik that is scary and exhausting. Rest in the Lord today. Are you wanting to wait? If so, may God be with you and do the same healing for the fibroid tumor. Praise be for his healing work already.

Have walked in your shoes before. It is a hard time to go through. (((((LutheranChik))))))

Lord Christ, have mercy on my Church and its turmoil. Have mercy on us sinners, enable us to focus on what matters: feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, educating little children, healing our earth. Lord, in your mercy.
