Please pray for my newly departed friend

Dear All,

One week ago on Wednesday a good friend of my husbands took his own life.  This came a big shock to his friends and family.It has been just over a week and I can't shake the feeling of numbness and disbelief.

Please pray for Dave and his surviving friends and family.

thank you

It's so hard when the person has killed themselves... I've been there, too.  I'm so sorry.  I will remember to pray..

"I wish they would remember that the charge to Peter was "Feed my sheep", not "Try experiments on my rats", or even "Teach my performing dogs new tricks". - C. S. Lewis

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

Gregory of Sinai, On Commandments and Doctrines
