Scriptures Against Suicide


my_head_dark_space_300-webSTOP, DON’T DO IT! Take hope! You have options that you cannot see right now! It is not that you do not have options, it is just that you cannot see them. Evil forces cloud our minds from seeing the hope of a better day. It is coming.

You have good options, you just can’t see them now.

Only the word of God can strip away the darkness so that we can see the brightness. You are in the dark simply because you cannot see the light. Hurt and hopelessness work together to block the light. The light is actually all around you. MAKE YOURSELF read the following scriptures, even if you feel absolutely nothing. The deadness will leave. Hope and light will seep into your heart. Do it!

Anyone who is among the living has hope. Ecclesiastes 9:4

Suicidal thoughts only survive within an outlook of complete hopelessness. Hope, true Bible hope, is the best antidote for hopelessness. Take the hope that is resident in the promises of God and put it into your heart. Your outlook will change. God has a wonderful habit of raising individuals out of impossible situations. He enjoys doing it, and it brings Him glory. The Bible is full of stories of people, just like you, that were delivered out of extremely dangerous and potentially embarrassing situations – including His own son, Jesus. You are no different. Reject the guilt and shame, and absorb His love, forgiveness, and hope. You will make it out of this situation! The darkness will not last. That is the real truth, but for it to work, you must see it as truth and believe it. This is where reading, speaking, and meditating God’s promises comes in. They will grow hope and belief in your heart. ALSO, PLEASE READ THIS – Helping Others Is God’s Prescription for Depression.

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down (depression), but a good word cheers it up. Proverbs 12:25 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Allow God’s good word to cheer you up. God’s word is the only true source of hope because it shows the will of Him who can help. Allow the hope of a good result to seep back into your heart. Suicide is the extreme dead-end of hopelessness. Allowing thoughts of hopelessness to control your thinking narrows and darkens your path till suicide appears to be the only option, BUT IT IS NOT. There are plenty of other solutions; you just can’t see them now because hopelessness has blinded you to them. The hope that is resident in the promises of God will open the eyes of your heart, and you will be able to see again. It will get brighter.

Suicide only appears like an option when the devil has hidden all your other options. Allow the Bible to open your eyes.

You will have to work at it. You will not feel like it. Do it anyway, your life depends on it, and contrary to what you are feeling, YOUR LIFE IS WORTH IT. Suicide is a permanent solution to an intense but short term problem. Don’t do it!

“Do not be a fool–why die before your time?” Ecclesiastes 7:17b

This may sound harsh but the hard truth is this – the thought to end one’s life is foolish – and once you step back and see it for what it really is, you will understand. Do not despair; it will get better. The power to deliver is resident in His word. Put it to work for you. Relax and make yourself read these scriptures and let God’s word do the rest:

You are my lamp O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light. 2 Samuel 22:29

But you will not need to fight! Take your places; stand quietly and see the incredible rescue operation God will perform for you, Oh people of Judah and Jerusalem! Don’t be afraid or discouraged! Go out there tomorrow, for the Lord is with you! 2 Chronicles 20:17

You have granted me life and favor, and Your care has preserved my spirit. Job 10:12

I will lie down in peace and sleep, for though I am alone, Oh Lord, you will keep me safe. Psalms 4:8

For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12

No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame. Psalm 25:3

You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:5

You are my hiding place from every storm of life; You even keep me from getting into trouble! You surround me with songs of victory. I will instruct you (says the Lord) and guide you along the best pathway for your life; I will advise you and watch your progress. Don’t be like a senseless horse or mule that has to have a bit in its mouth to keep it in line! Psalms 32:7-9

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all. Psalm 34:18, 19

If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumbles, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:23, 24

Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:5

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5

You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. Psalm 65:5

For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. Psalm 71:5

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. Psalm 71:14

I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:74

Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live…. Psalm 119:116a

The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14

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

Surely, there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:18

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusts in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength. (Perfect means complete. If I keep my part of the promise by staying steadfastly focused on the Lord Jesus Christ, He will keep His promise to give me His perfect peace. Isaiah 26:3-4 See also Philippians 4:6-7 below)

And the ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isaiah 35:10

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm – I will come to you. John 14:18

I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don’t yet have – for a man who already has something doesn’t need to hope and trust that he will get it. But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently. Romans 8:24-25

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 2 Corinthians 3:12

Nevertheless God, that comforts, those that are depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus; And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more. II Corinthians 7:6-7

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1:18-19

There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called–one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4–7

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:10

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ form the dead. 1 Peter 1:3

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 2 Peter 1:2–3

The Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials. 2 Peter 2:9

  1. I don’t think it’s wrong to ask God. I have asked Him in the past. When He did not take my life, I concluded that He wants me alive. I realized that I don’t know what the future holds. Maybe God has a reason he wants me around, I thought. That was right thinking. But I do believe it is good to let God know your feelings. He hears you. It shows that you do have a relationship with Him. Being isolated from other people can be a depressing experience. I know you said that you have depression, and I know that depression makes people feel like doing nothing. But my suggestion to you is this: Take action in any small way that you can. Do what you CAN do. Make a move towards creativity, helping others, attending local events. Exercise is also great because the more you do, the better you feel. It stimulates endorphins. (feel-good hormones). Volunteering any service can connect you with others. I don’t know much about your situation, but just know that there are people out there suffering too. The Lord needs you to care for His people. The work that needs to be done is just so great. Look outward at the ones who need you, and you will recover. Also, get a therapist. That will help a lot. I went to therapy for many years. Finally, about 4 yrs ago, my therapist gave me her blessing and said that I don’t need to come any more. She was right. I had made my way out of depression. Just keep an open mind and be willing to try new things. I will pray that God will put people in your life. You know, the friends you will make are out there right now. You just haven’t met them yet!

  2. I’m 19 and i have been depressed for 2 years. I used to do drugs which probably caused my depression. anyway, I have been praying, i have little faith but nothing seem to change. God has told me to be patient. I feel like i have failed at life. It’s really annoying to have to live with depression. I have suicidal thoughts but i won’t commit suicide because i know there is a hell so my only option is to live with depression and negative thoughts. I’m in school but i don’t have much energy to think clearly. My mind is sick and my soul is grieving. I went to therapy which did not help. I can’t find peace.

    1. Peace be with you my friend. Write down some of these scriptures that speak the opposite of how you feel on index cards, meditate on them. Keep them in your pocket and ask The Holy Spirit of God to reveal their meaning to you in a deeper way. To walk with you. Invite Jesus into your heart to make it new. Reject the bad thoughts of suicide and depression. The bible says, resist the enemy and he will flee from you. It sounds easy and like it doesn’t work, but it will! Keep speaking life over yourself and tell others that you trust and who have your best interest at heart if hey will pray for you also. Even if you do not “feel” peace, YOU HAVE THE PEACE OF GOD WITHIN YOU! God has already left it with us, until her returns. Pray to the Father, he WILL listen. Read the Pslams, as David had many many troubles and afflictions, God has rescued them as he WILL you, from them ALL! Speak his promises. When God says he WILL…that is a promise. In God’s amazing Grace and Love, I Speak a full life filled with healing, love and prosperity in the things of God, In Jesus Name. Amen.

  3. I have been praying for God to take me home (heaven), I want to die but am afraid of going to hell. I don’t have people in my life , nor parents due to my depression, my children don’t even want to be near me. And I lost respect for my husbsnd, no more love. Is asking God in Prayer to take me home the same as committing suicide. ? Please help alone in new milford ct

      Dawn – You have to fight this. Otherwise the Devil will destroy you. Giving up is exactly the goal of the Devil. Read this – Your Past Is Not God’s Future For You – and then hit the right arrow button at the top and read whatever article jumps out at you. God can help you. But you have to want it and you have to also fight for it. This is tough but self pity and victimhood is not the path out. We love you. I love you. God loves you. Your family also loves you. There is hope all around but you cannot see it because of the blindness of the Devil. Rex

  4. I’m not sure what part of the Bible you have read or if you have read it at all and misconstrued so much of it I am not one to stand up and condemn people because God said you don’t but I think you are way off .

  5. FaithMechanic, about the hotline/ministry, I wasn’t thinking you have to start something up or create a new forum or like that. I was just thinking, Google around and find a ministry you would be comfortable linking to. Put their website and phone number at the bottom of the article. It’s wonderful that we here sometimes jump in to comfort the downcast, but we’re not always available to in time, and there are ministries who are dedicated to this purpose with people available 24×7. That way there’s a safety net in place here.

  6. Jane Greater is HE that is in you than he that is in the world.lord Jesus keep Jane close to your heart.Jane you are a sweet child of the most high God.

  7. I have been a christian for a long time and just found out from a prophet, and it’s been confirmed, that I am a witch. I had no idea! Many people say I fight them in my dreams but I’m not physically aware of it. I want to stop but don’t know how because I don’t know I’m doing it. I am making God angry and am grieving the Holy Spirit. I have hurt alot of people and am so repentant, but it still doesn’t stop no matter how much I pray. I can’t read the scriptures and everything is dark. It seems like my only resort is to die… hopeless

    1. Dear friend,

      What makes you so sure that the person is a prophet? And even if they were a prophet, why should they be judging you? The job of a prophet is to tell people events that will happen in the future and to call people to repentance. But this person seems to be very judgmental and not on your side. God is on your side and wants you to be safe. Where there is life, there is hope for repentance and good outcome. The great thing about free will is that we all have a choice to be lost or saved. You cannot be a witch unless you choose to be one! In general, witches worship many deities of nature. They believe that trees have a spirit and rivers have a spirit. I don’t think you believe this. If you are a Christian, you believe in Jesus Christ, the Father, and the Holy Spirit. So then how can it be that you are a witch? If you believe in demons (principalities and powers), then that is also a Christian belief. Ezekiel 28 and Revelation 12 tell us that Lucifer was once an angel and was thrown out of heaven, along with all the angels who took his side. And it says that they all fell to Earth. They are now called demons. They sometimes afflict people, but even they cannot change our decision for Christ. In John 10:29 Jesus says, “My Father, who has given them [us] to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.” Paul said that, “…we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 8:37-38.

    2. Also, I forgot to say that you sound confused. You might want to try to find a therapist that can help you sort things out. I was in therapy for 17 years and it helped a lot. Finally, my therapist gave me her blessing. She said I don’t need therapy any more. So I stopped going and have been doing well since. I take medication for depression still. I have been on the same anti-depressant for more than ten years. It took me many tries to find a medicine that worked for me, but I persevered with my doctor. I do get side effects of dry mouth and constipation, but the quality of my life is a hundred times better than what it used to be. No one really knows why medications work for one person and not another. But what I can say, is that everyone has a unique body chemistry, so there is just no way to know which medication is best. It is simply trial and error. What made me successful was that I gave my doctor feedback on how well a medication worked for me. I mentioned how my mood had been, what obsessive thoughts I had been having, what my side effects were, etc. If the side effects were bad, he gave me something else. Eventually, I got out of the woods of depression! I was told I may have to take the medicine for the rest of my life because I have a chemical imbalance, but I don’t mind. I just want to have a quality life. That is what I value. If it means seeing a psychiatrist once a month or twice a week, so be it! Now I only have to go once every three months. My doctor is friendly and helpful. He says I have a lot of self-awareness. That has been key to my recovery.

      One thing that really helped me is to stop worrying what other people think of me. I only think about what God thinks of me. And He is always on my side, even if I’m astray. He always leads me back to His ways. It is good that you reached out on this website. I will pray for you and for your peace of mind. God bless you, dear friend. Just hang in there.

      Jane – That is not what someone in the office of a Prophet does or says. If God gave someone a ‘word of knowledge’ or a ‘discerning of spirits’ that they were a witch, then they would have the ability at that moment to cast it out of them. That is the way the gifts almost always work. The devil is lying to you and/or you are having delusions. Seek help. Do not rely on so called prophets. Especially if you had no idea you were a witch. You would know that something big like that was going on in your body and life. There would be some kind of confirmation.

      Also, true Christians can be oppressed in the mind but not possessed in the spirit. God loves you and is not mad at you. We love you. You probably do need to be set free but not from being a witch, but from lying demons and confusion. We do love you. Rex

  8. FaithMechanic, you know what’d be good on this post? A link to a Christian suicide prevention hotline/ministry. Somewhere people can go to immediately when they want support. Could you add that?

    1. Post

      SlowBro – I agree. I have been looking into this and have not decided which ones to add. I was just talking with my daughter about this last night. A member (cast or whatever) of the TV show Supernatural has a online forum for people with serious depression. I am looking into how they are doing it.

      I also need to add a private invitation-only group so people can communicate better. I am concerned about that so it will have to be closely monitored. This is all very sensitive business. God bless you. I sure appreciate you. Rex

      Anybody have any suggestions?

      1. Do you mean like a chat room? I don’t know what is the difference between a forum and the type of website we are on now. A chatroom of people with depression might be a recipe for disaster. A chat support group that happens at a particular time each week might be good, but would definitely need a healthy leader to run it. We’ll pray on it. I like your website. Would you like to cross-link our websites? My suicide prevention website would work great with this one. It is God bless you for your ministry!!

  9. Holly I just saw your comment and am praying for you spirit of death, suicide leave Holly now,lord Jesus fill her with life and life abundantly let her feel your strong presence by her in Jesus name we pray.

  10. Holly I have felt this same way for along time I lost my mother last year and I have no other family also lost my job after twenty two years. I’m in my late fifties and can’t find work, I came to this site some time ago it has helped me to see that God really does hear us and that the devil will do all he can to get us to believe that He doesn’t . Please don’t let this devil win. It’s time for you, me and everyone in our positions to fight harder and show our love and trust in God. I know how hard it is please show your strength and love for God, He promises He will get us through. Please Please don’t give up.

  11. Tina Marie, assuming your church is obedient to the Scriptures and is a great place where you can rejoice in the Lord, you would be loving to your friend if you thanked her very much for the time she spends with you, and told her honestly, “I would rather continue to attend my church.” If she’s got a godly heart she will understand; if she’s not walking in obedience she may not. But if you don’t want to attend with her that is your choice.

  12. Holly I’m praying. The fact that you’re here and talking tells me you don’t want to do this, that God is helping you from making a serious mistake. Read these Scriptures and think about His love. His love is often clouded by us, by the devil, but His love is real and it’s available for you. Look at those Scriptures and think about them.

  13. Please anyone pray for me, I am sitting here right now wanting to commit suicide. I’m 49 years old and I don’t want to go on any more. Im really tired. I believe in God, but I don’t believe he hears me anymore.

  14. T.M. Jesus is as close to you as your next breath,he loves you dearly.Will continue to pray for you and for all on this site.May The Lord bless you so you can be a blessing unto others.

  15. Tina Marie great to hear that. Do you have some godly people in your life to lean upon, to go to?

    1. Yes, I believe I do, although one, God Bless her, puts a lot of pressure to be part of HER church. I believe that if I am in God’s house and being Baptised -does the address matter? Any thoughts?
      Also, I missed FaithMechanic when giving my thanks sorry. I truly would have NEVER made it through but God is good always and IN ALL WAYS, God is good. Thanks, keep the good fight…You are also doing the Angels work.

  16. This is TM, which is short for Tina Marie… I wanted to thank you SlowBro and Mabel, and anyone else who prayed for me. I believe that I am through the worst. I mean being so close to the edge of that chasm. I also believe that I want to show God my gratitude and am thinking of baptism, AGAIN (I was as a baby, but really, how could showing glory be a BAD thing?).
    Thanks again and thank God.

  17. To all who read this site I pray for you daily.hope you feel the peace I do.Jesus is real,he is true,darkness flees for the name of Jesus,call out to him and he will answer you,he awaits your return.say In the name of Jesus spirit of depression.darkness,suicide leave me now never to return lord Jesus fill me with your peace and joy.

  18. I thank you for your time and caring enough to even reply…especially since my own people don’t think it is needed- out of sight, out of mind. And if there wasn’t a health and care issue added on top, I don’t think that I would be here, but that’s it. No more pain, I am sincerely trying to hang on, thanks again.

  19. TM I think if you could ask your parents in heaven about this right now I am convinced they would say DON’T DO IT! Living for Jesus is worth it. Don’t give up until He takes you home. Glorify Him with all of your heart and soul and mind and strength. He promises to be with you as you walk on this road. Praying for you.

    1. Thank you SlowBro, my Dad WAS very strong and even though he died painfully,he never lost his faith. My Mom, loved him so much,she followed about 18 months later. I try every day to find a reason and have been for 3 years. Seems like 30. But, now, I have SO much pain(ALL kinds), I’m just so tired. But I will keep trying. I thank you all, as I thank God I found you. At least you can say, you helped me today.

  20. I came here sincerely hoping to find a reason NOT to, the one I had stopped working. It’s not that I don’t have faith, I am exhausted and alone and the fight is draining out of me. I JUST want to see my Parents again.

    1. Post

      TM – The reason – you can have a great life if you let God’s word change your world. The reason you are exhausted, alone, drained, and without hope is that the lies of the devil have blinded you to the hope that is all around you. I know that it sounds like a lie to say that there is hope all around you but it is the truth. The devil works hard to cut us off from the truth. He gets us alone, and then lies some more for the kill. It is like those African scenes where the lion gets the single member or the herd off alone, and then the other lions circle him and attack. You are cut off, circled, and now being attacked from all sides.

      You will not feel or believe what I am about to say but it is true. There is happiness and there is hope for you. It is just that you are totally blind to it right now. It is like you have glasses on that block out anything that has to do with happiness and hope. I know, I know. This will sound crazy – but do it – try not to think or feel. Try to turn your mind and emotions off. Then get these scriptures, and others from other pages, and speak them to yourself and out loud. IT WILL FEEL AS DRY AS DIRT BUT DO IT. The word is bypassing your mind and emotions, and it is changing things inside of you. Please do it. Please keep doing it.

      I hear you on seeing your parents. I do. You will but not now, not this way. I will send an email to you. We love you. I am praying for you. Rex

  21. Slobodan thank you for your response. I am trying. On another note my friend at work Chris did not come into work today. Please pray for him as he is in a dark place.

  22. terry, this verse from the article came to mind when I read your comment: “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.” Psalm 34:18, 19

    1. terry, sorry I clicked send before I could complete my thought. This broken marriage is not the end. Jesus is there. He walks with us through pain better than any husband or wife ever could. Cling to Him in your dark hour. And know that soon, all wrongs will be made right. These facts have kept me going in the midst of a difficult marriage and a difficult boss and ongoing chronic illness. By the world’s standards I should have given up long ago, but He has faithfully kept me plodding along. Cling to Him.

  23. Mabel that was beautiful. I found this site because a coworker of mine is severely depressed and mentioned checking out. Please pray for him his name is Chris. I have my own issue as well; after two and a half years of marriage, my husband does not want to be married because he is married to narcotics anonymous and has no time he says to be a husband. We took vows and I am suffering with anger, anxiety, and sadness. This us his second marriage and his first ended in the same time frame. I just need some help to get through this

  24. God is ALWAYS at work, but not in ways we always expect, and often not in ways we want in the moment. When we’ve been there ten thousand years bright shining as the sun, we’ll start to have seen the front of the great tapestry He’s been weaving through our pain. But until then we usually only see the back side of the tapestry; when you look at the backside of a tapestry it’s a jumble of threads and odd colors. One must flip it around to see the beauty of balanced colors and handiwork. We sometimes get glimpses of the handiwork here; but it’ll take heaven’s perspective to really take in the master work.

    Praying for Adam. He did the right thing in shouting at Christians here. God is at work.

  25. Adam,
    I have been in your situation many times before. I can empathize. Praying is the only thing that helps. Sometimes all I can say is “God, please stop. I’m not strong enough for this.” Sometimes I can say more.
    But sometimes all I can do is beg God to stop. To let me breath a little before the next wave of suffering hits.

    Sometimes all I can do is let others pray for me be cause I feel so depressed and suicical I can’t do it myself. Then are actually some days when I can pray on my own and pray for others. I will pray for you.

  26. Stare at yourself in a mirror. I want to die. Being tormented by bed bugs and itching and you can’t sleep. I want to die. Loose your standing in your community and jobless. I want to die. Shitty circumstances will cause lack of hope and I want to die. Resenting others and wanting revenge and vengeance equals murder suicide. God has failed to intervene for me and I have cursed him and will continue to curse him for my suffering. How in the hell is suffering meant for my own good. I fail to understand that and will never understand it. I resent any God that gets off watching people suffer and doing nothing to intervene. Your God is punishing me since I’m such a horrible rotten sinner who has fallen from grace. Since I will never meet his or anybody’s expectations and some big disappointment to Christianity. Even if I ever set foot in a church again I will infect it with bed bugs and all you Christians as well. The church is a infection and a unfaithful reprobate. I resent the failed institution and all institutions who have failed me and are failing the American people.

      1. Isn’t it interesting that even though Adam claims he hates the God of the Bible so much — he’s here in a place where Christians have found hope? I think God is at work here, in a way Adam doesn’t quite expect. Praying.

      2. Hi FaithMechanic,
        I have a very similar experience as does Adam. I dunno where else to turn to. People at church don’t seem to understand me and Christian chat rooms just spam a buncha scriptures at me.
        Can I talk to you guys? Is there a way you can email me with a phone number to call?
        Thank you.

    1. Y, it is so good to see you care for another person. That is Christ at work in you.

      1.) Pray for them
      2.) If possible, be there for them
      3.) Share one or more Bible promises from this page
      4.) Share the gospel with them. Even if they know Jesus, the gospel will encourage them. If they don’t know Jesus they might come to know Him then, and would be given hope and purpose and reason and strength to persevere. I like the presentation at; VERY effective, very Biblical.
      5.) Entrust them to the King of kings who can move even the heart of a king. (Proverbs 21:1)

  27. Please pray for my son Terence (San AntonioTexas) who has suicide thoughts and I am (in Singapore) so far away from him
    He did wronged against the law and was in detention for a week and on bailed until his hearing in August 2016. This was the first he was caught for
    breaking into a lady’s apartment but didn’t touch her.
    He is being offered a job while in detention. Tomorrow he has to show up to present his identifcation and he is anxiety and in fear
    that he may not be given a job when he tell the truth. His wife couldn’t take his sins temporarily left him with his 9 years old.
    I am trusting the Lord to rescue him and send a god-fearing man to bring him back to God again.
    Thanks for your prayer support

      Tara – We will pray for you. I will pray for you. You will make it in Jesus Name! Start at our main page and scroll back and read the articles that jump out at you. Get all of God you can inside of you. The hope will come back and with it motivation to keep going. God will turn it around. Turn to Him and spend time putting the word of God into you. You will not feel anything for a while – no matter, keep doing it. It is like planting seed, you don’t see or feel anything but soon you see the shoot come up. We love you. Rex

    2. I will pray for you honey. I have your back. It will be okay,trust me please. I promise you it will be alright

  29. Mike, what an amazing story of God’s salvation. You are here because Ephesians tells us He is going to bring glory to His name through you. Embrace that charge, and walk in a manner that is worth of the the calling He’s given to you.

  30. My story is a little different. I tried committing suicide because I thought that I would be killing satan by doing so. I then tried drowning by swimming down in a river sucking in more and more water the deeper I went and then I hit the top of the water. don’t know how I swim to the top when I was swimming down. I came out of the water and found a house that was not there when I went into the water. there are so many question I have but one I don’t have is how I am here, because I know it was god that saved me.

    1. I also thought that I was saving my family and other people by committing suicide so I was probably not in my right mind. The point is I am here so God must have saved me.

  31. To SloWBro,
    from: the person with Lyme disease
    I try desperately everyday to hear Jesus. I am Catholic. I have a parishioner who visits me once a week to give me Communion. THe parish priest visits me once a month and I confess my soul to him. They are nice people but it doesn’t change how much I want to kill myself.

    I have been on every antidepressant made for over twenty years. I have been to countless shrinks. Nothing helps. Just this incessant need to die.

    I plead with Jesus and Mary to help me. I beg and cry and pray. I have been doing this for the last 4 years. I can’t take anymore. I am 60 and my life is over. I want desperately to die. I read the bible and look for passages of comfort . I even find passages that confirm my willingness and desire to die.

    I pray constantly – rosaries, chaplets, novenas, prayers, silent conversations with Jesus and Mary. I spend 10-15 hours a day in complete silence trying to let the Holy Spirit come to me. Nothing eases the pain. I don’t know what to do anymore. I can’t live like this for too much longer.

    I’ve come to believe that Jesus won’t hurt such a tortured soul as me. HE will take pity on me in my suicide and help me to see the light.

    1. “In the name of Jesus the Spirit of depression,suicide,death,grief, Fear,anger, hate,infirmity all tormenting spirits leave me now never to return in Jesus name,only the Holy Spirit remain in me.Lord Jesus fill me with your love,your joy give me the mind of Christ ,delete all negative suicidal thoughts off me.Put a guard against my thoughts and words..Lord Jesus I forgive all who have hurt me.I ask you to clear my blood line, lineage clear down to Adam,maternal and paternal sides.Set me free of this bondage in Jesus name I pray. heal me from head to toe fill me with your Peace in Jesus name I pray.Listen to “Oh the blood of Jesus “Break every chain ” utube ,I will be praying for you,trust Jesus in the name of Jesus every knee must bend.Evil flees for the name of Jesus..Lord Jesus come onto my heart live your life in me let your life shine through my lord and Savior.I will be praying for you daily:,I just heard The Lord say to you.”Be still and know that I am God”I am catholic too will offer the daily mass,healing scriptures for you dear be blessed in the name of the Father,Son and Holy Spirit Amen.

    2. To the person with Lyme disease: The hope here is that you will not just talk to Jesus, but *know* Him personally as I do. In knowing Jesus personally as you would a close friend I have been given much strength to endure. It says in Hebrews about the new covenant that Jesus would institute, “And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.” (8:11 ESV)

      Is that true in your life?

      Because I know Him like a friend He has walked with me through many trials. “When you pass through the waters, I [the God of the Universe] will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” (Isaiah 43:2 ESV)

      Based on what I know of the God of the Bible, Jesus would not say to you, “take your life.” He would say to you, “take up your cross and follow me” until He takes your life from you. There’s a reason you’re in this predicament. Consider the example of Paul in 2 Corinthians 2. He cried out (rightly so) for his thorn in the flesh to be removed. But Jesus told Him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV) Therefore Paul boasted all the more gladly of his weaknesses, so that the power of Christ would rest upon him.

      So many people who know Jesus have suffered under their thorn and taken up their cross, showing off the great majesty of a Savior who would walk with them to give them strength to endure with them to the end. Your life exists for the maximization of the glory of the grace of Jesus! There is the potential that even this very evening you would be so filled with joy from your walk with Jesus that you would shine as a light in the world among this crooked and twisted generation. People would ask, “What is the reason for your hope? Your situation looks hopeless.” And in that moment you’d be prepared to give an answer — it is because of the person and work of Jesus. Won’t you know Him as I do?

      There’s a purpose for your life. At the moment, that purpose appears to me to be that you would suffer with Jesus at your side showing the glory of the grace to endure that only comes from knowing Him, that people would wonder and glory in the Savior because of you. And if He wills, He can heal you. But the purpose of your life would not cease. It has always been, and will always be, to make the glory of the grace of Jesus to look as resplendent as it really is.

      You must know Him personally to do that. If you’re not 100% certain you know Him personally as you would a friend, please do this: Take five minutes and Google the good person test. Consider carefully what is being presented to you there. This is important. Please do it today.

  32. To the person with Lyme disease: Do you know Jesus? I don’t mean do you talk to God; I mean do you know the Messiah personally?

  33. I pray desperately everyday to die. I am bedridden and sick. I am never going to get better. I want to commit suicide and end this pain. I can’t take it anymore. I live in isolation with no friends except my husband. I am killing him with the gravity of my illness and the weight of taking care of me. I want him to have a happy, joyful life which he will never have with me. I am not worth the trouble. I am dead set on committing sunicide and getting this hell over with.

    I pray constantly. Rosaries, prayers, chaplet, books, scriptures. Nothing gives me comfort. The only comfort I feel is when I plot my death. Ive been to every shrink there is and have tried every anti depressive medicine out there for the last 25 years. I am tired. I am done. I awaken depressed every morning because I know I didn’t die during the night.

      K – We love you and I am praying for you. Don’t let the darkness overcome you. It cuts you off from the love and hope that is around you. We love you! Rex

  34. This article has been very helpful to me. As I read the scriptures I began softening to the voice of truth. Going from extreme thoughts of pity to seeing my part (I did not see the need for forgiveness moments before) I am in a completely different place now! When I see my error it brings me out of the dark place…and now I want to be still and wait for the Lord to take me to my next step. When I feel the urgency to apologize and follow through, I feel rejection when they don’t accept. And feel yucky. Then I get a chip on my shoulder. This is the cycle. The chip turns into a boulder. Then I explode when the boulder falls on me. Thank you God for whoever searched the scriptures and knew exactly what to say and how to say it🙏🏼

  35. REREDNAW, take heart! God is on the move. You’re being kept from giving up, and are reaching out for help. That’s God at work in your life, whether you feel Him or not.

    I’m willing to help you develop a plan. Email me: SlowBro904 (AT) Gmail (DOT) com

  36. My situation is way too long of a conversation to give backstory on… But I have a tendency to lose hope, fall into depression, and beg for death. I don’t want to commit suicide, though I pray for death. Something, take me out.

    I don’t know how to release this devastation and chaos in my life to God. I don’t know how to believe that I’ll be ok. I don’t know how to gain peace… I’ve tried all different ways, but the pain is still there.

    I pray for death, because I can’t fight through my situation anymore. I’ve held on too long, and losing hope seems to be my only option at times.

    I have fought this war against depression my entire life. More-so, the last 7 years… The worst is still yet to come.

    Ive lost everything. How can anyone expect me to keep hoping things get better when they continuously get worse? When is it going to stop?? I am not capable of even thinking about my problems without falling on the floor, unable to move from anxiety.

    Enough is enough. I’ve done the work. Over and over again. Years of work. And yet, here I am again… Praying something will take me out.

    Hope is disappearing, almost non-existent. I don’t know if I’ll be able to hold on. I won’t be able to, if I don’t find help.

    the bible says I’m not alone. So why do I feel like I’m the only one in the entire universe that knows I’m right? That I’m good… That I’m awesome…

    Giving up is where I’m headed. I need a bona-fide miracle… But every single time I see the first glimpse of light, something worse happens to drag me down further.

    From someone who has lost literally everything, not by my own doing… I’m over it. Angry. Hurt…. I don’t know how to not be anymore.

    I’m searching for a lot more than a pep talk… I need a plan, and taking it one day at a time isn’t an option anymore.

    1. I feel what you feel everyday and wish God will take me. Ive been battling over 40 years since I can remember. I read of Heaven. Revulation :21. no more tears and no more pain. I long for that. Depression has ruined my life in so many ways. But God uses me , I am a Worship leader, I love Jesus. I read scripture all the time and meditiate. I pray for both of us because I know your pain. May Jesus have mercy and grace on us and heal us.

  37. Sandy your comment really stood out to me. Your school experience sounds so much as to what mine does, but it always brings hope and joy to see that someone who went throught that made it, and is still kind enough to give their time to help people. Thank you ♡

  38. Collegekid, So I have ran across this problem multiple times, with not only myself, but others. You were not meant to be perfect. You were meant to make mistakes. And you know why the people you love keep giving you chances? It’s because they understand. They understand that you need to make multiple mistakes over to learn what you are doing. wrong. Making mistakes over and over does not help with self confidence at all, but please hold on to it, for I have learned it is a vital part of starting over. If you don’t believe you can do something you drastically lower the chances of you actually doing it. Please remember that you’re life is not a dissapointment. Nor will it be a dissapointment. Hold on to your faith and know that God loves his sons and daughters greatly and that he will never give up on you no matter how many times you fail. And one last thing, sometimes failures teach us more than victories ever can. We love you, keep holding on and working towards growing! ♡
