Please pray for me, help me to keep my faith strong

I am a mother, a wife and a daughter. I am suffering from a severe depression. I need prayer, I need guidance, and I need a little help keeping my faith strong. Please help me.

Life has never been easy for me. But I consider myself blessed just the same. Right now though, a depression so strong has come over me, that I am having trouble staying focused. This has gotten me into some legal trouble, and I am so scared for my family. I am having trouble just keeping my will to live. Please pray for me. Please pray that my faith remains strong, that I am able to overcome this new set of obstacles. That I continue to be able to resist temptation. Please pray for me. Please pray with me.

Jesus, you knew pain,
you knew the loneliness, the weakness
and the degradation it brings;
you knew the agony.
Jesus, your suffering is the only hope,
the only reconciliation for those who suffer.
Be with Kate as she grapples with the pain
she suffers now.
Be a promise to her
that this present suffering will cease;
be the hand that she can hold;
be present, Savior, for she needs you now.
God our healer,
keep her aware of your presence,
support her with your power,
comfort her with your protection,
give her strength
and establish her in your peace.

Dear Kate,

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. We wish we had more help to offer here, but 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.
