Desperation is an emotion that can drive people to suicide. This summer we saw suicides rise. It is holiday time when people feel the lowest.
I can only imagine the distress anyone would be under to commit suicide. It is a feeling of being hopeless and disconnected. If there is anyone out there feeling so desperate I write these words for you my sister. I hope this prayer lifts you up from what is happening. Please know someone somewhere is praying for you.
Heal my broken heart, My Lord, Heal my broken soul,
I feel torn apart, My Lord, And You can make me whole.
Take me in Your arms, My Lord, And hold me to Your breast,
I am oh-so weary, Lord, And You can give me rest.
Wipe away my tears, My Lord, With gentle hands of love,
Quiet down my fears, My Lord, With graces from above.
Stay with me awhile, My Lord, For I feel all alone,
I’m like a little child, My Lord, With You I feel at home.
Help me bear this cross, My Lord, Help me with this pain,
Unite me with Your Cross, My Lord, And I’ll be strong again.
Tell me how to cope, My Lord, Let me hear Your voice,
Encourage me with hope, My Lord,Your way, my only choice.
