For healing of the family of my friend Shari and the eternal memory of her son Zach, 14, who took his own life yesterday.

May Our Lord and Savior grant peace, love, compassion and understanding to Shari in this time of turmoil, and may Zach receive forgiveness for all his transgressions, voluntary and involuntary.

For Zach and Shari, may they find peace with our Lord in this life and the life to come, may Zach rest in a place where there is no more pain, no more grief, no more sighing, only life everlasting...
Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen....

Prayers! As the father of a 15 year old who has struggled with depression at times in his life, I pray for Zach and his family. May God have mercy on His servant, Zach, and upon his poor parents, friends and family!

Eternal memory!

A Prayer for those who have lost an older child, youth, or young adult

Lord Jesus, You know the pain of a broken heart. Your Own Heart was broken by a lance for us all. Your own sorrow at Your Death was the sorrow of separation from Your Father and Ours because You accepted sin on our behalf. Help those of us who have suffered the loss of a child that You entrusted to us, to see beyond our grief to the comfort that You alone can give. When the pain seems too great, let us simply put out our hands to reach for Your Hands and hold us in Your Warm Embrace. When we feel that we cannot pray, help us simply to sit quietly in Your Presence so that Your Presence Itself may heal us. Lift us from a grief that cannot be healed and help us to wear the scar of our loss with the sure hope that You wish it to be for our salvation, even when we cannot understand the reason why. Through the prayers of the Mother of God and of all the saints, O Lord Our Savior, hear and answer us who grieve. AMEN.

______________________________________________
For those contemplating suicide

Lord Jesus, You came into Your Own Creation to release us from the power of death and the lack of hope that living without You often brings. Help us to be Your Presence and Comfort to those who have lost a loved one by his own hand. Be the strength of those left behind to wonder why. Grant to those who are contemplating the taking of their own life an openness that seems to be lacking. Break down the barriers that are erected by those who feel that they are alone and without hope. Let them see that there are other human beings who care that they continue to live. Help them to have an inkling of their priceless worth, both to You who made them and to us You have gifted them to. Give us the Grace to show those slipping into despair that leads to self-destruction that they have worth and that there is hope, because hope is You and life in You. Grant all these things because You love us so much. Through the powerful prayers and intercessions of Your all-Holy Mother, Mary, the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin, who is by Your gracious gift from the Cross our mother, Lord Jesus, grant us all these petitions and save us all. AMEN.
