From BBC Louisiana to you, here's the morning news

« on: February 23, 2013, 03:42:11 AM »

I found out recently that a very close friend of mine, by the name of Reece, is contemplating suicide. Naturally, I was concerned and tried to help him best I could, all the while suggesting he see a psychiatrist. This isn't the first time I've been concerned for him- ever since he lost faith and fell away from Christianity to Agnosticism, I've been trying to bring him back into the fold, in hopes that he can be raised from his despair, God willing. I recently lost all contact with him, so I'm not sure what is going on with him.

Please pray for him, that he might be safe, overcome his depression, and come back to Christ. Thank you, and God bless!

Lord, have mercy on Reece.

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.

Lord, have mercy!

I hope he is okay.

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.
