Lord have mercy!
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

Some speculate that he's run away. I don't really know that much, however. Please continue praying, though.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord, the loving and merciful Christ our God, as I´m not worthy of praying to you, please let this teenage boy be brought home safely. That your grace may be shown in the hearts of men and that this boy may rest in thy loving and caring hand, for ever and ever, amen. To the glory of God our heavenly Father in Christ Jesus name, with the prayers of you O most holy Theotokos, and all thy Saints my merciful Lord.

Lord be merciful and help this boy find his way back to his home and loved ones.

Grant wisdom and soften the hearts of those who may have taken them, so they release him unharmed.

Strengthen his loved ones who must be suffering greatly at his loss.

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.
