For my friend Daniel
« on: November 11, 2015, 10:32:47 PM »
Earlier this evening, my friend Daniel called me to say he was going to kill himself and had taken a bunch of pills.  Obviously, I called 9-1-1 right away, and I was finally just able to find out that he is now in the emergency room and in a physically stable condition.  This is the second time he's done this in a few years, and has not been good about taking his anti-depressants.

If you would please, please keep him in your prayers, I would be quite greatful

Lord have mercy on Daniel, and comfort his spirit.
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

Lord have mercy and save him.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Lord, have mercy!
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Lord, have mercy on your child, Daniel.

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.
