GOD IS HERE! — Your life is worth living. Let Him carry your burdens.

Part of my daily prayers the past few years has been asking God to intervene in the lives of anyone considering suicide, no matter where they are in the world. It doesn’t matter that I don’t know them, I simply want God to touch their hearts with comfort and let them know that the overwhelming loneliness, pain, and hurt driving them to suicide does not have to be their burden to carry. I pray God will remind them that HE IS HERE. Present every minute. Even, and I dare say, especially, when life is at its absolute darkest.

The suicide of Pastor Rick Warren’s son on Friday is painful beyond words for those who loved him – and especially for those who witnessed his daily struggle with mental illness. While my prayers can’t save him, I’m recommitting to praying daily that God will intervene in the lives of others who can still be saved.

Father, please find the one person today who is in the depth of despair and can see no other way out but to take his/her life. You are the ONLY one who can bring hope where there is none, joy in the face of sadness and peace in the midst of turmoil. Please bring them all to that person so that he/she may see that all things are possible with You – even facing, fighting and conquering the demons.

Father, please let this person know the words of Your Son in John 10:10: I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. Lord, let this person see and accept the invitation for this richer life that You are bringing to him/her today. You sent Your Son to die on that cross because You love us so much that You don’t want any of us to perish. You want that we should all have abundant life here while we keep our eyes focused on You and the eternal life that can only be found through the grace of Your Son Jesus. Prepare this person’s heart that it may be open to accepting Your intervention and let his/her survival be a living testimony to others who are facing the same.

Lastly, I pray for the Warren family. Father, may they take comfort in the many promises that You’ve made to Your children in the bible.

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.

Psalm 46:1-2 (and all) God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.

Revelation 21:3-4 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.  He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

For anyone who out there today thinking that suicide is the only answer, God IS listening. CRY OUT! He loves you more than you know and wants you to live. He has a calling for you. You can be a living testimony for others who are going through the same thing. Let Him use you. Tell Him you’re not strong enough. Let Him carry the burden. He’s here. Just talk to Him.

Psalm 147: 3 He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.

Psalm 34:15The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.

Psalm 34:17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles.

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
