Request for Prayer.

Um, got a special prayer intention so my friends who are reading do pray for me ya, please (regardless of your belief system-there's only one God anyway).The intention is prety confidential la, but basically I've taken a vow to shave my head and go vegan for a hundred days, give up my morning coffee for a year, sunrise to sundown fast for 3 months,pledge a portion of my salary to charity for a year and few other things should this prayer of mine be answered.So yea, this really means a lot to me.

I do believe in the power of prayer and that if you want something bad enough , the universe itself conspires to help you get it.And to me, its for a irreplacable cause.

So do keep this intention your prayers brothers and sisters.God bless.

Thanks a million.

De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine:Domine, exaudi vocem meam:Fiant aures tuae intendentes,in vocem deprecationis meae.Si iniquitates observaveris, Domine:Domine, quis sustinebit?Quia apud te propitiatio est:et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Domine.Sustinuit anima mea in verbo eius:speravit anima mea in Domino.A custodia matutina usque ad noctem:speret Israel in Domino.Quia apud Dominum misericordia:et copiosa apud eum redemptio.Et ipse redimet Israel,ex omnibus iniquitatibus eius.Gloria Patri, et Filio,et Spiritui Sancto.Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper,et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

Note to readers (Esp dear Pelf) .....translation of above (which is actually a Latin prayer.. called De Profundis)

Out of the depths have I cried to Thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice. Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication. If Thou, O Lord, shalt observe iniquities: Lord, who shall endure it? For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of Thy law I have waited for Thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on His word: my soul hath hoped in the Lord. For the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord. And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

In case blur liao, Christians and Jews see themselves as Israelites sometimes ^ ^.
This prayer is actually a Biblical verse taken from from Psalm 129.Its usually used for dead souls la (De Profundis literally translates to 'From the Depths')

But in my case I really hope for this to happen, so yea, kinda feeling in the depths right now :)Thanks sis! For the prayers.. :)

You mean "from sunrise to sunset", no? And I'd like to pray for you, no doubt, but must I read those jumbled up words?! My tongue isn't cooperating well, bro, maybe you can give me an English version??

LOL But David's Pslams can be uplifting sometimes :P

Magnificat? My soul glorifies the Lord, and My Spirit rejoices in Lord my Saviour, for He has....

That one ah?Or the Regina Caeli? Queen of Heaven?

No la, I prefer sad stuff in life sometimes- keeps the balance, some more I'm dating a Libra(scales) LOL.

Thats it... The Magnificat-lah... "My soul glorifies the Lord..." I love that. So much so that I say it in place of the "Hail Holy Queen" during the Rosary.
