I need your prayers

by Mary (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

I am hopeless and am preparing to take my life. Will someone please pray for me – either for a miracle or that dieing will be easy.

I wrote to this site years ago and received a large amount of people who cared enough to write and tell me that they were praying and that they cared. Things picked up immensely after that and it made me believe in miracles and the intensity of the power of prayer.

Thank you to those who may have read and/or responded to this request.

  4. Declare God's promise over your life.

    Yes you have heard it again and again God loves you. Indeed He does but you must receive it. If you don’t no one will do it for you. All things of God are received by faith. With God you take the first step. Kindly do that now. Declare to yourself and others that if God is for you who can be against you.
    You are His and not even the death you are contemplating can separate you from His love.
    You are blessed. Amen.

    Just one more day….wait one more day, and when that is done wait another and then another…it will get better.

    I tried to…years ago, and am glad and thankful, I failed. Life may not all be lollipops and roses even now, but there’s a simple joy in seeing another sunrise and the setting of the sun that follows. Soon there will be happiness around you, enough to balance out the pain and the desperation.

    I am including you in my daily prayers, Mary (you have a beautiful name).

  16. Pray to God & then St. Jude, don't kill yourself!

    PLEASE don’t take your life. Give God a chance to help you! I know you may be frustrated but if you knew MY situation you’d hang in there too, because so many of my situations seemed HOPELESS–Trust me. GOD is Good. HE HEARS you, and St. Jude is one of his most reliable Patrons. PRAY to him. He will help you. Give it some more time okay? I too wish I was not living, but miraculously right after I prayed to God then to St. Jude, He stepped in stepped 2 years and helped me. I was broke, sick, lost my home, everybody around me was dying. But now I have a job, a bit of money coming in through my job, I’m eating and I something to look forward to. A reason to LIVE. I still have bad days, but I look at my life NOW and am okay with where I am now because I pray a lot to God and to St. Jude who helps me. I ask St. Jude to help you too. Just call out to God then to St. Jude. Don’t give up on life. Fight like I did! God Bless you! St. Jude, help this person fight to live and not kill themselves.

    Amen and Amen

  17. Strength In The Lord

    Depend on the Lord and He will see you through. You are in my prayers. Godspeed.

  18. praying for you

    I think that our Father sent us to this page so that we can help out our brothers and sisters. We are all praying for you.know that God has not forgotten about you, as a matter of fact, at this point in your life it could be very likely that He is carrying . Keep the faith and let God carry you. I’m sending up a prayer for you. He loves you and so do I.

  19. Do Not Despair

    In times of great despair I’ve always turned to God for hope and guidance. I was blessed to see a miracle when I was at my lowest. I recently suffered a great loss and offered my suffering in reparation for my sins. God sent me the strength to get through this loss – strength that I never knew I had. I will pray for you. Remember that God is there for you and always ready to hear you needs so He can answer them.

  20. Your not alone

    I was here to pray for my wife who is bipolar and having an hard time with it and other things in her life. I think at one point most of us consider suicide. I know I did when I went through my 1st divorce. Things will get better. But, like was said earlier join a church. Your not alone in this world there are good people out there. You just have to find the right places to look. God loves you. I love you.

  21. Life is so precious

    Life can be so hard sometimes. I know this personally. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer almost 2 years ago. We have gone through some unspeakable bad things, but through it all we have never lost sight of the fact that Jesus loves us very much.

    When things get too hard to bear I ask Jesus to wrap His loving arms around me and just hold me…and He does:)

    Now my precious husband has only been given a couple of months to live. I pray every day that Jesus will give me more time with my best friend. Life is a gift from God. It is precious.

    Isaiah 49:16 says that God has graven us upon the palms of His hands; our walls are continually before Him; so we have to be special to Him.

    I pray that Jesus will wrap you up in His love and love you through whatever you are going through.

  22. I am praying for you nw

    I cry with you for your hopelessness. Please believe God is nearer to you in your despair than ever. I will keep you in my heart and hope that you will have a return to feeling that life is worth living. I was where you are and may be again but I am glad I am still here – even able to reach out to you now – that’s worth a lot.

    May God bless and keep you.

  23. I care

    I am praying for you now, and will continue to pray for you. Please Please know that there are many people who care about you, and God never stops caring!!!! You are in my thoughts and prayers.



  25. don't give up

    don’t give up dear. I too, am experiencing a very heartbreaking problem at the moment and the thought of taking my own life has crossed my mind at first. however, we have the support of our frineds and other loved ones, we can get past this. just have faith and keep praying for enlightenment.

  26. The Lord will always show you something right when you are at the point you stop believing...

    The word says…Cast your cares upon God because He cares for you. I beg of you to draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers us from them all. Mary, think back to the time when you felt you had lost all hope before.and how the Lord sent people to pray for you and you felt the mighty move of God. The word says… I know the plans I have for you says the Lord plans to prosper you and not harm you and bring you to an expected end. I pray that you will receive this outpouring of love from those who have replied. I love you and I need you to survive! I am praying for you!! Kelly R.

  27. God loves you and your life is special

    I prayed for you. GOd loves you and you will have a great life. Hugs

  28. God does not turn away

    Mary, I urge you to not go through with this. In 2009 I tried to commit suicide, i planned, i cried, every day, killing myself was on my mind. God had other plans, He revealed to me the talents and gifts he’d bestowed me with. Colossians 3:23, Ephesians 2:10

    I know the feeling of waking up daily feeling like you have wounds on your heart that just can’t heal. Searching for the “best” or “quickest” way to die. Seeing people laugh and desperately wanting to feel the same way. I know what it’s like waking up, going to bed and not seeing the point of being alive. Wishing for God to intervene with a dramatic miracle to show how much He cares. Mary, i cried each night just like you, never believing that anyone would hear my prayers, knowing that no one would dry my tears..

    When there is a blessing on the way the enemy either tries to obstruct or destroy it. He will not do this with you. You know why? God is good, He saved me from death, and He will save you too. Hebrews is a brilliant book all about faith. Read the word and pray. Rebuke the enemy. Remember that faith as small as a mustard seed can shake mountains and please God. Diligently seek Him. He will never leave you nor forsake you.

  29. never give up

    I know at times the pain of this world can seem more than is bearable but remember in this world with it’s dimension of time the first certainty is chang.

    I pray this certain change brings you strength and relief from your suffering. A relief not certain in the choice you contemplate now. Life is hope. A hope not certain in the choice you contemplate

    Choose the hope for a good change. Choose a life of hope. I pray you change your life as best you can and that your life fills with thevlove of faith and hope.

  30. Let Him Hold You

    Dear Mary, I pray that you will have peace and feel His love for you. I know that God loves you and He will never leave your side. I know how you feel. I’ve been there. Unfortunately I’m all too familiar with the black hole of despair. Hold up your hand to God. He is reaching down to pull you up and out of the darkness. He is with you right now. Please grab ahold of Him and let Him begin the healing process within you. He will provide for you and help you through each step of the way. May God be with you and grant you the strength to keep going and to start living. Peace be with you Mary!

  31. Call 911

    Dear Mary,

    You are in my prayers. If you have a plan and a way to carry out your suicide, I beg you to go to the hospital or call the authorities right now or call someone who can talk to you right now. Ask yourself, What is keeping you alive? What do you have in your life worth living for? What are some of the regrets you might have if you did kill yourself?

  32. Lift your eyes to the hills...

    You are so special in the eyes of God (and many people). I will be praying for you and lifting you up. Prayer is a powerful tool and if you listen to the response, you will always have an answer. Remember to lift your eyes to the hills and there WILL come your help. God is with you, today and ALWAYS. He is caring you through your time.

  33. HANG ON

    You are important! God put you here for a reason…maybe it is to struggle…maybe to love…maybe to learn to appreciate every little breath. Sadly nobody knows why we are here and I have been through my share of “trying” times that make me want to give up…I’ve even asked God to take me… but he hasn’t.I believe God is all knowing and if he hasn’t ended my days here on earth then there is something very important I must do…maybe its writing this to you…perhaps when I hit the submit button I will have a heart attack……the point I’m trying to make is to hang in there get through each day…do good to others and yourself and when its your time to join God in heaven he will let you know..thats His choice to make and we must trust in Him…Peace be with you.

  34. I need your prayers

    A year ago last October I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I thought, “ok, that’s it!”. I am a Church Organist, which strengthens my faith, and I can promise you that, despite a major operation and radio-therapy, I can see that there IS light at the end of that tunnel, but don’t try to go there alone. Seek out people in your local Church community, and, above all, TALK to them. Tell them how you feel. Talk to GOD. Tell Him how you feel. Everyone who has responded on this website is praying for you. I have a Church meeting today (Saturday) and will pray for you then. Have courage. You will pull through. God bless you.

  35. you are loved

    please open your heart to the love that is being sent to you. Ihope you very soon feel better and feel the benefits of gods love from all the prayers being said for you.i am praying for you.there is always hope.

  36. Love you

    Please open your heart and feel the love. I have prayed for you. Be at peace hon! The Lord God is with you and his hand is above your life!

    You are very special creation. Please don’t do anything to hurt yourself. You have a power in you that you must not destroy. It is God himself, his Holy Spirit loving you and he will use you to love others with this heart!

  37. needing prayer

    I was moved and touched by your plea for help here I am praying for a miracle and thought I had a very grave problem with my son who has refused to go to school and become something and I am 55 years old and have never been married. I am good looking and there you are with a far devastating concern. I pray that you feel that you are worthy taking your life will not make things easier. Today you have seen the care and concern of so many people, god loves you as each and every one of us this night and we will pray that you begin to stand firm under his banner.

    Please read Psalm 20

  38. Be Encouraged

    I pray that u wil gain the strenght to realize that taking your life defiles evrrything that JESUS came & died for.Please find some one to help u discover some reasonable options.

    Whatever u are going thru, just know that suicide is a temporary solution for a permanent problem. Things change & let’s pray that u might be close to your break through, that means u would not be around to see & experience the newness of life that u are no doubt hoping for.May GOD bless & keep u.( Read Psalms 23, also, Psalms 27: 13-14.

  39. Caring for Yourself

    It is important to see that God created you as a daughter He loves. What he sees is a woman in need. Keep faithful to Him and live his will. Care for yourself and know that you are important. There has to be a reason to respect life. Look at the beauty in things and see God’s creations. Even if you have lost anything or anyone, it is a memory no on can take away. I deeply pray that you see how special you are to the world and stay and grow in happiness. Be strong!!!! You are so loved. Talk to your priest or pastor. â€

  40. For Mary

    I read your need for prayers today and it hit home for me. My daughter has been suffering with depression for quite some time and 2 weeks ago she tried to kill herself but she didn’t. She went to the hospital and had many prayers for her. I would suggest trying to reach out to a support group or a church family.

    The chapter brought me to today for you Mary is,

    Isaiah 40 and especially verse 31.

    Your are in my prayers.

    God be with you

  41. God Hears Pray

    There are thousands of people in the world that sometimes feels the same as you do and often without the love and faith of Jesus Christ, they are no longer with us. So, my dear friend please have faith and give the burden to our Lord, for the battle is not yours, it is the Lord. God hears prayer. Pray to God, cry to God. I pray that he protects you in this hour of pain.

    God Bless You!


    You are in my prayers…I can say that I have been in your shoes recently…I know that the Lord Our God is the ONLY one to put my trust in. He is my focus, for without him I cannot do any of this on my own.
