Suicide at my university
« on: October 16, 2009, 12:10:59 AM »
A student recently jumped off of the top level of one of the parking garages at my university. I did not know him, but would like to pray for him and his family and friends...

Forgive, O Lord, those who have died without repentance. Save those who have committed suicide in the darkness of their mind, that the flame of their sinfulness may be extinguished in the ocean of Thy grace. O Lord of unutterable Love, remember Thy servants who have fallen asleep...

If Thou art willing, O Lord, have mercy.
주 예수 그리스도 하느님의 아들이시여 저 이 죄인을 불쌍히 여기소서.

May the Lord comfort and strengthen the family and friends of the individual at samkim's university who died suddenly and tragically.

Amen!

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy on the soul of thy troubled servant.  Grant him a place of repose where there is no sadness, evil or pain.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
