Roberta R
My Last Hope

A prayer for hope that my life is worth living and not ending

I am writting for the last time, I have no strength left. I have prayed for my marriage to no avail, I have prayed for work to no avail, I have prayed for legal assistance to help me save what little I have left from my marriage, to no avail. I have seen such injustice all of my life. It was brought to my attention that a murderer or any criminal can have free legal assistance, I have never committed any crimes with the exception of loving my husband. I have lost everything I owned and only have the clothes on my back and my little dog. I am 56 and so tired. All I ask now is that you pray for my son. My prayers for me have no answers. I am alone. Please one last time pray for me.

Dear roberta2345,

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. It sounds as if you would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources you could try. We hope you will contact one of them as soon as possible. You deserve to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When you call this free number, you will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner you make this call, the better.

2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called Befrienders International (known in this country as The Samaritans). Send an e-mail to and you will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website you may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

You are in our prayers.

I believe that God knows and feels our pain and hurt. He is the source of all love, and that includes 'tough love'. But tough love from God is still love from God. I, too, am dealing with a broken heart right now. I do believe in prayer and the power of prayer. I cannot explain it, but I have experienced answered prayer and comfort in prayer. This is so difficult for us now, but I pray for an answer for us.

I like to look to Jesus example of forgiveness and loving. His instruction to pray for those who would do us harm. Pray always and find people to pray with you in your town. There is only one to church of Christ and it is found, I believe, in the hearts of His people (though they may be in different religious settings or denominations).

Ask........Seek........It will be given.
My prayer:

Gracious and loving God, source of all comfort and love, architect of all the majesty we behold. Guide us and give us wisdom, strength, courage and patience as we try to understand the challenges you put before us. Help us to keep Jesus example in our hearts and minds as we struggle with the pain and battles of love in our life. We are truly thankful to have you with us and for the good things we can so easily loose sight of in our pain. Lord, have mercy on us who have broken hearts and illuminate the path you set before us with the light of your love. Stand by Roberta in her time of distress and hear the prayers of all the faithfull who cry out to you. You, truly, are our rock and redeemer. To God be the glory forever. Amen Amen

Many people are praying for you. Go to the 'broken hearts' prayer circle, you will see many reaching out to you and in prayer for you.

Gracious and loving God, bring your comfort and peace to the hearts of all of us who are broken in spirit today.
