View Full Version : Prayer request for a suicide

Oct 12th 2008, 06:19 PM
I heard last night that an acquaintance has killed himself. A young man who I only know from a couple of handshakes but it's still a sad thing.

Apparently, he had some typical troubles for a man his age and it just became too depressing for him.

I am sorry that I didn't get the opportunity in any way to shed some light.

Pray for the ones that are left behind in the wake of these events.

I will do. My mother killed herself, and I know that even now, nearly twenty years later, there are after affects and ramifications. Don't feel that it's your fault - these things happen. Pray for the survivors, and pray for God to guide you... He can use you to save another in future.

This was not in anyway your fault though.

I am so sorry. It's always a painful and confusing thing when this happens. I had a neighbor shoot himself a few months ago, and it was very shocking and sad.
I will pray for the family. What was the young man's name?
Just remember....the Lord can work any tragedy out for His good, and He is eager to.

I will pray for the family, ant that you might in some manner be a witness to them in the name of Jesus.

Praying for the family right now, and praying for you as well. :pray: Suicide is hard to accept and to understand. All too often we can't see the pain and sadness that others endure. This is not your fault, don't blame yourself.

This pains me so much. Prayers for all involved.
I have a dear friend who has been touched by suicide. It's horrible for all those left behind, so many unanswered questions. But God is always near and can get the man's loved ones through the pain. We must just trust in Him. I'm so sorry this young man was in so much pain that he felt this was his only way out.

Praying for this man's family and friends, who are left behind to cope with this loss. Praying, also, that we can be a light to those who are in need of help and hope.
