Saint Paraskevi, please help me! You know the suffering and misery of my soul. Pray to God to heal my heart so I can feel pure and in peace. You know all I have been through, you know the meaning of everything through your wisdom. Help me understand, accept all evil that hurt my heart! Give me patience and teach me how to be a humble person! I am sorry for all my thoughts, for all that I have said and judged. You know what is in my heart.
An old teaching says that gratitude is a rare flower. If we would consider these words, we would no longer wonder that our soul is sick and that the world is suffering. We are often unsatisfied by our life, by the conditions that we live in, and we wait the moment when we will receive the joy to which we have been called, but we do not know which way to go.
Pain is a bad thing, but behind it, behind the suffering and the test lies the blessing of God, the rebirth and the refashion of man and of family. Almost everyone owes their return to this aspect. Behind any trial there is God’s will and of course at that time we cannot see the benefit, but in time we will be able to see it. We have so many examples in this regard!
He wants to make your house and heart ‘a house of God’ filled with grace and power, light, peace, joy, and true happiness. Oh brother, open the door for Him, open it at once, give him all the keys from the chambers of your life, that you may start a new life in Him. Welcome the Lord at once and you will be wondered what a grace and a blessing stepped in your life and home.
