Friend of a friend od'd, but is alive.

A friend of a friend od'd this weekend on bath salts and cocaine.  He is in a hospital and is conscious.  That's about all I know.

 may the Lord have mercy on him,strengthen and grant him healing from the chain of addiction.
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Lord have mercy!
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

Lord have mercy. St. Ephriam of Nea Marki pray for him.
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.

He was released from the hospital yesterday into the care of his parents.  My friend was with him this morning when he passed out and fell to the floor, bleeding from his ears.  He is back in the hospital.  Please continue to pray.
