Prayers on a Sunday


Still praying for my dear friend.

For privacy purposes, I will call her Mara,

from Naomi in Ruth 1.20

where she says her way has become bitter, broken, confused.

*

Mara and I have been dear friends for over ten years.

*

She is struggling against a very big battle right now.

*

Please pray for her and her parents and siblings

as they try to support her through this.

*

I am many many miles away

and so ask your prayers.

You will never meet a sweeter Christian woman

than Mara,

let us pray that her way returns to that of Naomi,

that which is pleasant and good.

*

God is with us

and I look to him for mercy;

to the Theotokos and her veil for protection

and the Angels to keep Mara in their care.

Lord have mercy on your friend. I know how hard it is to be far away from a friend who is in pain. I will pray for her.
