Prayer for a friend's family

Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

Prayer for a friend's family

Postby The Annoyed Man » Wed Dec 21, 2016 2:38 pm

Early this morning, a young man who is an acquaintance of both my son's and mine shot himself to death. His mom and sister found his body this morning. Just yesterday evening he apparently seemed fine, and was out having fun with friends. His Facebook posts gave no indication that he was depressed or anything. His name was Brett.

The thing I remember that was cool about Brett was that he started and coached a woman's roller derby team for a few years. I always thought that was kind of interesting. We knew him as part of a group of people who were members of another forum called Zombie Squad.

Nobody saw this coming. Please be in prayer for his mother, sister, and other family.

Hate to hear this anytime but to think of a family's loss just days before Christmas is heartbreaking... and likely this is what they will think of every Christmas for a long time.

Prayers for comfort and strength to his family.

It appears this happens frequently during the Holidays. This is very very sad for his family and friends. We will be praying for his family as well as his friends like you and your son.

Prayers of comfort sent. I's so tragic to hear about these kinds of things, and it's especially troubling, when there was no warning signs for someone to be able to intervene.

That's a terrible and sad thing.

Prayers for the family, they'll need some strength to get through this.

Very sad. Too many people think there's only one way out of their problems.

Prayers sent.

I wish more youngsters would realize that the pain doesn't stop - it just moves to everyone else they leave behind. If they were aware of that....
