Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ.

I would like to ask for all of your prayers.  There has been a very traumatic death in my family.  I'm not sure how many of you watch national news consistently or live in the northern ohio, but there was recently a suicide/ murder.  The  man who committed the murder and then took his own life was the ex husband of my aunt.  He was recently released from jail after having been convicted on stalking charges.  Unfortunately, whatever insidious evil had taken hold of him prompted him to murder the woman he had been convicted of stalking, and then to take his own life.

First and foremost I would like to ask for your prayers for my aunt.  This event has come on top of an already stressful situation in her life; the serious and probably terminal illness of her current husband.  Her name is Becky.  Please pray for the health of her husband as well.  His name is Roger.  I would like to also ask for your prayers for her two sons, Todd and Dwayne, who needless to say had a difficult relationship with their father.  I pray that his actions not embitter them entirely towards God or life in general.

And finally I would like you to pray for their father, whose name was Paul, that God may in His infinite mercy make a way for his repentance. I don't presume to know how this could occur, but pray nonetheless.

thank you all.

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 on Thy handmaiden Becky, and Thy servants Todd and Dwayne.  Heal Thy servant Roger.  Have mercy, O Lord, on the soul of Thy servant Paul, and grant him rest in a place of repose.
