Today is the one year anniversary of the suicide of my cousin, Preston.  If those of you who read this could just take a few moments to pray for him, it would mean a great deal to me.

On hiatus from posting. Forgive me if my posts have lacked humility or tact. Note that some of my older posts -especially those prior to late 2012- may not reflect my current views. In the meantime, please pray for my sinful self as I am in a critical and unsure juncture in my life. Thank you.

I am sorry to hear this sad news. It must be a difficult time. I lost a good friend to suicide many years ago. I will certainly pray.

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

May the Lord be merciful to Preston, forgive him his sins, and grant him eternal rest among His saints.

I've lost more than a few friends to suicide.  You have my deepest sympathies.

May the Lord have mercy on Preston and grant him eternal rest and may He also have mercy on those Preston left behind.
