Prayer for another of my friends, newly departed.
« on: October 02, 2012, 09:42:42 PM »
Another of my friends has committed suicide.  This happened the evening before last.  I was close friends with him in elementary school, but when we both went to different middle schools we drifted apart.  He was a wonderful boy who seemed to have fallen in with the wrong crowd.

I can't imagine how this must be on his family.  Please also pray for them.

Lastly, pray for me.  The grim events of these past months are effecting me a bit.  This is becoming a real problem in my community.

Thank you.

Your friend, Trevor.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
