Shane P.
Depression in late teens and early 20's

Prayer for depressed late teens and early 20's

Please pray for Shane, who is very depressed with suicidal thoughts. He hasn't had an easy childhood, and thinks nothing will help him. I try positive reinforcement, talk about God, and convince him to go to therapy.

We're sorry Shane feels so badly right now. We wish we had more help to offer here, but it sounds as if he would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources he could try. We hope he will contact one of them as soon as possible. He deserves to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If he is in the U.S., he can call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When he calls this free number, he will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in his region. The sooner he makes this call, the better.

2. If he 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). By sending an e-mail to he will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

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

He is in our prayers.

I will pray for your son. May son also is afflicted with depression stemming from a difficult childhood. I prayer for his mother. There is always hope, "Cast all you anxiety on Him because He cares for You." 1 Peter 5:7
I love the site They have on-line counselors (all called Jo) that are trained to deal with depression and feelings of dispair. God Bless Shane and his mother.

I will pray for Shane. I pray that there will be much love surrounding him, someone there to listen to him, love him.. I pray that God frees the spirit of depression, in the name Christ Jesus. And I pray that love is growing within him right now, with the strength of the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
