Cousin needs prayer
« on: November 18, 2005, 09:15:31 PM »
My cousin and his friend were hit by a car, it is likely they will die. They are not Orthodox, and are too young to have been Baptised. They need prayer really badly. Thanks.

Lord, have mercy on these young people, on their family, and their caregivers in the hospital!

Most Holy Theotokos, please intercede to comfort all who need comfort now.

I'm really sorry to hear that. I am praying for them right now!

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

No words could express your pain--I wish I could give u a hug.

God give them the strength to stay alive and recover.

Prayers from me, too.  Your cousins may not be baptized, but your cousins are also His, made by Him and loved by Him.  His will be done for them, I'm hoping on His mercy.  Remember not, o Lord, the sins of our youth.  God be with them, and have mercy upon them, and upon all of us.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner

Lord, have mercy!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

After all this time, things are starting to look up for him. He is in and out of the coma, and is expected to keep improving. Thank you for all of your prayers, I don't think he would have made it without them.

Praise the Lord.  May He continue to have mercy on him!
