Prayer for Rev. Greg Albritton and Children

Please pray for Rev Greg Albritton and his children.

This was posted to the FB of Rev Ken Gurley's church:

"""Dear Friends and Family

My heart is so heavy today at the tragic loss of Jamie Albritton. She was a minister’s wife that took her life last night.

I wanted to reach out and tell you all this…Whatever you are fighting or facing – you are not alone. Your internal struggle is one you can share with us. You are loved and so very valued.

Don’t ever feel like you’re fighting alone because we are a force. We are a team. We fight together. We rejoice together. We weep together.

I love you all more deeply than you can imagine. Today is a good day to reach out to someone and let them know you love them."""

Re: Prayer for Rev. Greg Albritton and Children

When I heard about this yesterday it made my heart heavy. For a mother to commit suicide in front of her six year old son is something I can't comprehend. I know from all accounts she was a good mother who, in her right mind, would never do such a thing.

The enemy attacks each of us in whatever area is our weakness. I think depression is a gateway for evil and if someone suffers from it they should seek help in every form available. Prayer for healing, medical tests to look for chemical imbalances in the body, counseling to find a root cause if it is possible and deal with it, and lastly if really needed medication, at least temporarily, to help.

I can't imagine the pain and suffering the surviving husband and children are going through. They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

I grew up seeing him at La District Youth Camp as a kid. Loved that man. I am so so so sorry for his and his families loss.

Re: Prayer for Rev. Greg Albritton and Children

This morning, the keyboard player from church apologized for being late and unable to play. She said she'd been up late because her son had attempted suicide.

Incredibly sad how so many church folk now are in depression and committing suicide.

That's a bit rude and unnecessary. And considering you haven't a clue the person or family, kindly shut up and refrain from whatever it is you're attempting to insinuate.

I think its rude of this mother or any mother to attend a church service the day after her child attempts suicide.... If you do not see a problem then you really have no desire to hear about or help anyone with mental illness.
