Pray for young soldier who killed himself in movie theater
« on: October 14, 2009, 10:53:29 PM »
I spoke and performed at Camp Atterbury, Indiana tonight and met with the family friend of a young soldier on leave from Afghanistan who shot himself in the head two days ago.  He did this in a movie theater watching a film with his younger brothers and friends. Please, reach out to one of our troops NOW and make it your business to care. If you want to know some good ways to help, please PM me. You can read the whole story at my website, www.boundforfreedom.com.

Pray for Jacob, and may he now find peace.  And pray for his family, friends, and all our troops who have served and serve.

Following the tragic and sudden death of Jacob, may the Lord comfort and strengthen Jacob's family, friends and those who served with Jacob in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Amen!

May the Lord have mercy on Jacob, on those affected in any way by his life and death, and on all those afflicted with disease or disorder of soul, mind, or body!

Lord have mercy on Jacob, and make his Memory Eternal.

Lord strengthen and alleviate the pain of those he left behind.

Lord, give strength of body and soul to all those who find themselves in harm's way.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

With the saints give rest, 0 Christ, to the soul of Thy servant where sickness and sorrow are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting.

May God bring comfort to Jacob's family and give them strength to look towards the Lord for help, understanding, and guidance in this most difficult time.

Lord, have mercy and may Jacob's memory be eternal.

Amen.
