bff's cousin attempted suicide last night, now unresponsive in ICU

friends, thank you for your faithfulness in praying for the needs in our community.

my best friend's cousin has been really troubled mentally for at least a couple of years now. last night he tried to commit suicide (not sure how) and he is now in the ICU but it sounds like things are not looking good.

he comes from a christian family, although some are not yet in personal relationship with Christ. i don't think he is saved, although i really hope i am wrong.

please pray for a miracle on this one. i try to pray for God's will and the grace to weather whatever the outcome, and don't often presume to ask for a miracle, but this time i am. God has done miraculous things in their family before, and the last time He did an entire household was saved.

thanks. <3

thank you. no updates yet. from the sounds of a fb post another cousin made, i think he is still in a coma.


*edit* 7:30: still in a coma. she said they're doing dialysis and he has no clots or brain swelling, but he just isn't responding. please pray that this absence from consciousness is the Lord meeting him where he is and working through some stuff. this praying for a miracle thing is still fairly foreign to me - i haven't done it often - and i am trying to keep from hedging my prayers much. God is sovereign and He is good no matter what, but i know that He also wants us to pray specifically. so i am. thank you all for your prayers.

thanks paul!

he still isn't awake but drs just told the family there is no brain damage. super grateful and thankful for that, and continuing to pray he will awaken, with new life and with a shift towards Christ.

he is awake! no more news on his condition, other than that.

please pray for his mental state. he wanted to die, so there is no telling how he is feeling right now.

additionally, there are some other concerns/factors at play here, so please pray for wisdom for his family, and pray for discernment for my best friend as she tries to sort through the dynamics. (luckily she is a licensed therapist, so while she can't work with her cousin, she can at least make some educated observations about her family.)

Thank the Lord that he awoke! I can only imagine the mental state he must be experiencing, as well as that of the entire family . Praying for healing physically and mentally.

Lord Jesus Christ our God, who trampled down Death by death and made mockery of the forces of evil, bless now the mind, body, and spirit of this your beloved, raised up from the pit after such a grievous fall: for You are good and the lover of mankind, and to You is due praise, together with Your Father and the life-creating Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen
