Prayer for Another

(Icon of St. Seraphim from Kiev).
*
A friend called me in the middle of the night.
Really struggling.
She is a God-believing protestant.
*
As I have experienced the difference that being
an Orthodox Christian in an Orthodox Church,
not to mention
Orthodox monasteries,
I can only say I wish so much that she had what
the Orthodox church offers.
*
Please say a prayer for my dear friend.
I am miles from her and wish I could be with her
during this time of trial.
*
If you are Orthodox do not forsake what you have received!
It is such a temptation for us to not
be present to the Church that is for our salvation,
for our repentance and hope;
may God help us.
