wow, ryan. i didn't know it was you. the prayer means all the more coming from a friend.

he is better. it was rough when he first awakened...he didn't want to be alive and was feeling pretty physically rough. it sounds like he is better but his struggle with mental illness (possible psychosis) is ongoing, so he could use continued prayer.

Yeah, I was lurking until I received a decision from the admins about unbanning me, but your post compelled me to step out of my lurkerdom before the decision came through, then my lurker account was deleted and my name was changed.

I'll pray a rope (Orthodox prayer rope :P ) for him. What's his name?

Lo! How a rose e'er blooming from tender stem hath sprung,
Of Jesse's lineage coming, as seers of old hath sung,
It came a flower bright, amid the cold of winter,
When half-spent was the night.

Isaiah t'was foretold it, the rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it, the Virgin Mother kind,
To show God's love aright, she bore to us a Saviour,
When half-spent was the night.

O flower whose fragrance tender with gladness fills the air,
Dispel with glorious speldour the darkness everywhere,
True man, yet very God! From sin and death He saves us,
And lightens every load.

I hope your friend makes a full recovery. Many blessings in Christ's name. God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good! Peace, Amen.

thank you both.

ryan - the fam has requested privacy and he has a unique name, so his first initial is all i can give - a.

hi friends,

i have to ask for prayers once again. a was being treated in a private facility for the last couple of months. last night they allowed him to go for a walk and he didn't return. earlier today his family was asking that people call if he had been spotted and praying for his return, but my bff texted me at 4:30 to say that police found his body this afternoon. i don't have any additional details, but i appreciate your prayers for his family as they cope with this loss.

يا ربّ ارحم! / Lord, have mercy.

May God the merciful judge show mercy even to the chief of sinners.

Praying for all involved.

thank you paul and bill.

the strange (or maybe not so strange) thing is that yesterday while he was still just missing, i asked her if she was prepared for this to end badly, and told her that i had been prepared to receive a call that my brother's life had ended. we talked about that preparedness and how it isn't a place i would advocate going unless it seemed like the chance of that outcome was high. and then she got the call, and i thought how easily it could have been my brother, under very similar circumstances. i can empathize with a's brother and sister, and hope that as they mourn, they were also at least somewhat prepared.

I've not been in that situation, but I've encountered it or similar some, and I grieve that you and she had to be put in that situation.
