A friend of mine committed suicide today. He left behind many friends and family that will miss him dearly, I ask for prayers on his behalf, for those affected, and for others who walk towards the same path.
Father, have mercy on this man and grant him salvation through your Son Jesus Christ. Grant consolation and hope to those who love him. Mother Mary, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
