Prayer for those who are Hopeless

by Leigh (Charlotte NC)

I don’t know if I believe in God. It’s not that I don’t want to, but my life has been filled with overwhelming sadness and heartbreak. I have a hard time believing a “kind god” would let all these things happen.

I’m really struggling now with overwhelming stress, loneliness and a desire to quit life. I’m just exhausted. If there is a God, which I hope so, I ask him to have mercy on me, show me the way and help me find peace. I can’t continue if I don’t get help.

  1. please hang in there

    I know sometimes it’s hard to keep believing but hang in there. Helps come from unexpected sources in many ways. Sometimes you just have to hang in there a little longer.

  2. I understand...

    Dear Leigh,
    I was trying to find some Peace of mind myself…but instead I felt the need to say something nice to someone here or just maybe help someone find a little hope. I recognize myself in your prayer…and I just want to say…I know how it feels and I have asked the same questions and wondered about the same things…So maybe what I am trying to say is that you are not alone. There’s someone out there who understands what you are going through and remembers you in her prayers. Just because you reminded her…that she too is not alone…there’s someone out there who knows exactly what she’s going through.

  3. Keep your head up & keep fighting!

    Don’t give up. Despair can be a cruel friend and the devil will weigh you down but have faith that all that has happened (even the bad) has all been a part of God’s plan for you. You may not see it now but everything always works out how it should. You are being groomed into the exact person the Lord wishes you to become. If you’ve never believed in God until this very moment, give Him a chance to introduce Himself. Every day that you wake up alive is the Lord. The sun, rain, moon, grass, trees…they are all God! He is everywhere. Pray for a sign & then open your heart up to be receptive to His love. He’ll give you many signs but you may only see one. Open your heart & your eyes. Try to live a life resembling the Lord (we’re all sinners but we can try) and Be very grateful.
    Thank God for everything you do have and don’t dwell on whats been taken away.
    I will be praying for you. I love you. We are all citizens of Heaven; it’s just a matter of our lives on Earth.
    Warmest regards,
    Yours in Christ
    Tara Y.

  4. you are not alone

    I think it’s safe to say that we all go through that in life; lonliness and hopelessness. Or at least I am currently going through that too. But what is more important is for you to keep strong, know that you are not alone in this world, and seek help when you need to. God is always watching over us, although sometimes it feels like He isn’t. If you keep praying, you will realize He never left you.. Don’t despair, there is always light at the end of the tunnel

  5. Tranquility

    You are not alone, I feel that way so often. I would like to pray for you, myself, and everyone who has been brought here with burdened heart. Lord, please keep us under your wing and restore us with the tranquility of your sacred heart. Amen

  6. pray to the Virgin Mary

    remember back to a time, when you felt all was lost…and things worked themselves out? remember that sign of relief that you had when you realized how close you were to the edge and didn’t go over? You are not alone. Through our own pain…God brought us to this site. Finding you and your post gave us a reason to hope and live. No…you’re not alone. None of us ever were. He was with us all the while Look up on the net, the prayer the Memorare. Its a prayer to the Virgin Mary. She is our mother. Her role now is to bring you to Christ. Say the prayer every morning and night…slowly and with sincerity… you will feel her presence. I will pray for you my friend. (((hugs)))
