Please pray Shooty.
« on: October 27, 2011, 12:36:12 AM »
A young Tamil refugee, Shooty, held in Villawood Detention, has committed suicide. He was only 27. Please pray for him.

May his memory be eternal.

Lord, have mercy!
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.

Lord, have mercy!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Lord, have mercy! I was friends with him on facebook for a few months. But since we never "talked" I deleted him :( I feel kind of bad for doing that now.

+Memory Eternal! Lord, rest him in Your wonderful, quiet place where there is no weeping nor sorrow nor suffering of any kind. Dear brother Shooty, I don't know you, but I hope, ad pray, that the Lord will make the two of us meet in His place of repose, place of verdure, where there is no sorrow or suffering or moaning. +Lord, have mercy on us all.
Love never fails.
