Darren Ross
Will someone please pray for me?

I am being consumed by guilt,depression, and the fear of dying.

I was raised in church and I know the power of prayer. I was called to the ministry at a very young age but I ran from GOD and ended up on drugs. I am not on drugs anymore thank GOD but I am now disabled. I am losing my five children, I am not able to support them so I don't get to see them very often. I have wanted to be a writer all of my life but now I am having to accept the fact that I am a loser. I feel like I am losing my mind. I am letting guilt,depression, and the fear of dying consume me. I cannot handle the fact that I can't take care of my children, and that I am losing them because of it. please somebody help me I don't want to live anymore, but I don't want to die lost. Does anyone care about me anymore? In this world if you don't have money nobody cares about you. Please someone pray for me.

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit. I pray that you find peace in Christ once again, and know that he is and has always been with you! those things are in the past and God promisses to forgive you for your sins, your sorrow and guilt will continue to bring you down if you keep thinking about your past problems, Jesus said ,think on good things. you need to put your trust in Jesus and let him guid you , and remember he loves you!! read 2Corinthians 12:7-10 Jesus i pray for mr. Ross that he may find the comfort and peace in you that he needs Amen

Children also need to be 'taken care of' emotionally...if you fear dying and feel guilty, they will feel that too. I am sure that you are a VERY GOOD father, or you would not be worrying about it. If you have always wanted to be a writer, you can write to your children, poems, or advise. If you do not have much time left here on earth (as none of us know our own time to part), they will have a part of you that time cannot touch. Talk to them, reassure them, and just give them your love, that is really all they need. I will pray for you to heal emotionally and strength to come to you from above. I hope I've made you feel better! Take care, don't give up!

Darren, you cannot believe the urgency I felt when I read your request for prayer. You must seek help for your depression as your children need you, even if they do not live with you. God loves you so much and He designed it so that fathers are to be the spritual leaders of the family. You must seek God's will in your life and know He is aware of your pain in the lose of your children and things "will "work out, Darren. Your courage through these trying times can be such an inspiration to them. I will keep you in my prayers and I have faith God will reveal great things for you if you will just seek Him! Love in Christ

Faith will lead you on. Faiith will help you stand firmly in the valley or on the mountain top. Hope always awaits you. In the valley of doubts about your self which you have now, hope never sleeps, and it will never die. Draw upon your faith, draw upon your love of your children and know that faith in your will give them the understanding of what you are feeling right now. God Bless.

We each have a path to walk. Just know that many are walking your same path. There is always someone beside you. Take the time to quiet the mind and feel the loving person who watches over you and loves you. It is hard to see through the haze of negativity but know you are loved. Money is but a human thing reach out for love and compassion and you will see that money means nothing. I care about you and pray that you find your way. We are here for you just reach out and we will listen. God Bless you and we love you.

Darren, I pray that you will realize that you do not want to die now because you have to live to take care of your children. You do not want to die and have them not know how much you love them. Do not give up on your dreams. Just because things do not happen exactly the way you want them to when you want them to happen does not mean that they will not ever happen. God is wise. He knows what you need when you need it more than you do. Trust in the Lord.

Darren, If you were close to God at one time;remember that He loves you very much. You have to love him,tell him all your problems just as if he were right there by you. You must ask him to feel you with the Holy Spirit and totally surrender your life to him. Be amazed at what God can do. Love and seek him and he will meet you where you are. I am living proof to that statement. I will keep you in my prayers for strenght to help you call upon him. What can you loose.

Please hang in there, if not for you, then for the 5 children you have. Take comfort in knowing you are in others' prayers. And God will take care of the rest

Darren, don't do anything you will regret! If you need help, get some. See a psychologist or counselor, but get the help you need. Your children will feel your depression and pain if you let it continue. And I will pray for you and yours, as I know the ice and pain of depression. Know that others DO love you, and that it will be better.
Love&Blessings! :-)

The Lord has always been there for you. And he will remain there for your children

Dear Darren,
First of all, I would like to start out and say that you are NOT a loser. Not to me, or to anyone else here, you are just hurting. Do you believe that is what Jesus thinks? That you are a loser? Would He have died for you then if he thought you (or anyone else here) were unworthy? Would he have led you to the Lord and your salvation? Or given you mercy? You have to believe Darren! You said that you are disabled, is this not an opportunity for God to work His glory through you? To show you that He can more than abundantly meet YOUR need? God loves You Darren.. Pray, have faith, cast off your doubts and start to believe in yourself, and in the God whom believes in you. We will all have days where we will feel angry and defeated, but God has given us the gift of grace! The gift of peace! The gift of mercy! And this is through his love that he gave us these gifts for eternity. We just have to take hold of Gods grace and believe! Take hold of Gods grace and believe! Take a hold of Gods Grace and believe!

Darren, I have bipolar and suffer from depression alot. I was a drug addict before I had my daughter and I understand the guilt. Not only guilt about doing drugs, but guilt about all the things those drugs did to us, and made us do. Please do not give Satan the satisfaction! God is right there beside you! He is waiting for you to be ready. Tell Him you are! Tell Him you need Him! His heart cries with you. Please know He is the ONLY reason I have lived this long. Many times I should have died, but here I am. ChildofGod60 is right in saying that your children need you whether you live with them or not. God truely does still perform miracles. Every day. He will help you get better contact with your children. Pray for them as well as for yourself. And know... we care. God cares. He will never stop loving you. And remember, He is right beside you!
