I'd like to ask for prayers for a young man about my age (16) who committed suicide yesterday morning. I never knew him, as I said in the thread topic, and he and I went to different schools in the same town, but several friends of mine were very close to him. I'd also humbly ask for prayers for them as well, along with the boy's family. This can't be an easy time for any of them. Cry

Lord have mercy!

Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
    Though I have fallen, I will rise.
Though I sit in darkness,
    the Lord will be my light.

Lord, have mercy

Lord, have mercy on this boy's soul, and ease the pain, loss, confusion, guilt and all grief of his family and friends.


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.
