Christopher Wood
In Need of Prayerful Guidance


I need your prayers of support to help me through this period of depression, self-doubt, and professional change to have the strength I need to find/continue my reason for being.


In the last three years, my mother has died, my father is dying, I have been divorced, I have been downsized twice and unemployed only to grab onto professional positions that seem to be stop gap at best.

I believe that I (like all other humans) am here on earth for a purpose, but I have not felt a sense of fulfillment in my life for many years.

I am lost, but seeking everyday for some sign from God for a direction. This rudderless existence has me entertaining thoughts of suicide, but never to a point of thinking of ways, only as a desperate thought for relieving this suffering.

I firmly believe in the power of prayer and especially in the power in the community of prayer.

I ask only for your prayerful help to receive the divine inspiration I need that can guide me towards a place where I can fulfill my destiny.

Dear Christopher,

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 Jo@samaritans.org 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.
