Prayer 1: for the suicidal.

Lord, I have recently discovered many who are considering suicide. They slit their wrists, they pop a few extra pills, they starve themselves, and they post pictures of it all on Instagram, claiming they just want to die.
When obviously, they do not wish to die. If that were true, they would have accomplished it by now, and they wouldn't post about it publicly.
They just want affection and comfort, peace and rest.
They need you, Lord.
Be with them, and bless them with your grace.
Please, and thank you.
In your name we pray. Amen.

Psalm 16:9-11 "Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand."
