Lord, I come before You with a heavy heart. I feel so much and yet sometimes I feel nothing at all. I don't know where to turn, who to talk to, or how to deal with the things going on in my life. You see everything, Lord. You know everything, Lord. Yet when I seek you it is so hard to feel You here with me. Lord, help me through this. I don't see any other way to get out of this. There is no light at the end of my tunnel, yet everyone says You can show it to me. Lord, help me find that light. Let it be Your light. Give me someone to help. Let me feel You with me. Lord, let me see what You provide and see an alternative to taking my life. Let me feel Your blessings and comfort. Amen.
Father, I pray that my loved one puts his/her trust in You because You are the firm foundation! I pray that they cast their cares on You because You will sustain them, You will never let the righteous be shaken. So Lord, I thank You for being the rock that they can lean on. I pray that they turn to You in the darkest moments because You are the only one who can bring them out of it and build them up so that they are stronger than the suicidal thoughts they battle with; thank You Lord, Amen.
I have suffered from abuse, sorrow, depression, pain, sickness, used and taken advantage of by people I care for and trust for many years, it ruined my life. I have lost everything. The meaning of living, I became worthless. Depression took over me, I cannot go on with daily activities for many years now.
Each moment and night I have thoughts of suicide because I can't bear the pain anymore. Lord Jesus, you are a just God, search my honesty and my deeds, do I deserve this? For my life to be rubbed from me, for my happiness be taken away. For someone to destroy me, I am human like them, why do they enjoy to persecute me?
There's no gain in my death so bring me Justice, for all they think is wickedness towards me and they pay me with evil for my kindness. Please Lord, you know how much pain I am going through, I pled for your mercy upon me. Amen!!
The darkness has taken hold me and I can't find my way back to the light. In this moment, ending it all seems like the best option, the only option, the only way to escape. Yet, there is something in me that wants your light to snuff out the darkness. So I ask, Lord, that you would do just that. You are the only light that can shine in the darkness.
I know when I'm consumed with thoughts of death I'm believing lies from the enemy. I ask Lord that you would remind me of these truths: when I feel alone, you are with me; when I feel invisible, you see me; when I feel worthless, my value is knowing you and being known by you.
Lord, help me to understand that you are enough, because you are everything I need and more. Remind me that when I feel hopeless, you have hope in me and for me. Remind me that when I don't have the words to cry out to you, your son Jesus is praying for me, and your Spirit intercedes for me with groanings too deep for words. Let this remind me that I am seen, heard and deeply loved.
I often feel out of place in this world. I don't fit in and I'm not sure I want to. Remind me that this world is not my home and while, as your child, I will never fit in here, my time here isn't over. Not yet. Please, give me the desire to live.
When I feel like I don't matter, remind me that I was created with purpose. When I don't know or understand why I feel the way I feel - remind me that you know the depth of pain in my heart, in my body and in my being. You know me better than I know myself and yet you still love me.
When I feel like my death would go unnoticed because my life seems to go by uncelebrated, remind me that you celebrate me and that you hurt for me when I'm in this dark place. Remind me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and I am worth more than I know. Remind me that this life is not mine to take. Remind me that suicide is not the only option. Remind me to love you and to love myself.
As I say these words I know in my heart that you love me and I feel incredible guilt for wanting to take the life you gave me. I feel embarrassed to admit these thoughts to you. I feel overwhelmed that you know these thoughts without my even saying them, and yet you still love me. Remind me that Jesus did not come to earth and die for me so that I could live a defeated life. Help me to desire life and to live fully in you.
In Jesus precious name, Amen.
