Suicide and depression
This is not for a person, but rather for people. It is for people that suffer from depression and suicide.

This is a prayer circle for all the suicide and depression victims.

Whether you personally suffer from it, or a loved one does, or even if you just want to offer well wishes to those that do, then here is where you can offer prayers and positive thoughts for all concerned.

I personally suffered severely from depression, and I like many others still suffer the after effects. Many people I know have suffered from it at one time, or still do.

The purpose of this circle is to pray for and offer well wishes to anyone that is in this dark place.

For all that walk in the shadows of darkness,
For each soul shrouded in misery,
For every person walking in a pitch black night, with stars covered up by dark clouds,
For every life that is filled with such pain,
For every individual that wishes for an end,
For every light that's snuffed out,
For everyone's fears and their doubts,
I offer my prayer to you all,
I offer my prayer to every person that has ever lived in a realm of such pain,
I pray that the Goddess gives to you all, peace and comfort and hope,
I pray that you each hang on,
I pray that you find reason,
I pray that you live on.

For the power of love inside me,
And the power of life beside me,
Blessed be.

this prayer is heart felt. i have been suffering from depression since childhood. a few heard my cry and told that you will grow out of it, it is part of your monthly cycle, i understand how you feel, it will go away. it didn't go away, i didn't grow out of it, it isn't part of my monthly cycle, you don't understand unless you have been there. i have tried suicide and was sent back. now i have the help and a good support group. thank you for such a beautiful prayer that can be shared with others.

I have always had depression but now it seems to be getting worse. I too, stay in my room and cry. I would more than welcome hearing from anyone. Maybe we can help each other, or at least talk to one another when we're feeling down.
I will keep eveyone in my prayers. Say a little prayer for me too.

Butterfly, I say a prayer everyday on my way to work. (its always the same prayer)
When I get home I try and stay busy. (i try very hard to avoid my room... I will keep you in my prayers. If you want to you can e-mail me direct. We need to help each other. Yesterday I turned 39, and I
stayed home today. (in bed of course) I just did not WANT to talk to anyone. Not even the dog. It is SO hard to fight that feeling EACH and EVERY day. If others are not going throught it, it is hard to explain. I thought for a long time that i was alone in this. One of my friends said that I was going crazy and it is just the start of alzhimers (sp?)
I dont want to hurt my self. I just want to be alone... I hope you understand.

Please pray for me. I've been so depressed and tired for five years or so. I have four ADHD children and need so much help to care for them that we're not able to save any money. I'm on medication, but will it ever get better? I spend most of my time in bed.

I've been suffering from mild depression since my Mother died of Cancer 3yrs ago. It has been more harder for me since I had to move in with my dad and step-mom. After that I created a Suicide Mission, from step one to step two. I've been to Hill Crest for my behavior but no one really has helped me to the root of my problem.

I to suffer from Bipolar Manic Depression and anxiety, and recently somethings have came into my life due to my ex husband and it deals with having to go to court and my other ex husband has not let me talk or see my children which ages are 13 and 12 years old in six months so I am at a very low point in my life thank god that I have a good friend and a wonderful fiance' on my side but please pray for me in this certain time that things will with God's help workout. I keep taking my medications the doctor prescripes and it seems to help but I still get very low at times and think of suicide to end it all so I won't have to go thru this but I know I am not walking alone so if anyone out there feels like they can share their wisdom and caring hearts with me just write.

When I was in seventh grade, I tried committing suicide because I thought that I was the only one who felt sad and lonely all the time. A friend found out and told a school counslor and she helped me tell my mom. Then I started going to therapy and about a year later, maybe less, I was out of therapy. I thought I was healed and that feeling like that would never happen again. But about a month or two ago, I had a major reoccurance and tried committing suicide again. This time, my sister found out and got me help. I have been in counseling for about a month and started on prozac. I feel that I am a weak person because I rely on medication, which I know isn't true, but I just can't get my mind to stop thinking it. My doctor diagnosed me as having depression and he is worried that I might be bipolar. I just wanted to say that God never gives you anything you can't handle. I know it sounds cheesy, but it is true. I have to tell myself that everyday to keep me from going more crazy than I already am. If anyone just needs to talk or a shoulder to cry on, email me at

I have been suffering from depression since I was eight years old. I have been hospitalized about four times and have tried to kill myself countless times. I have always been a very spiritual person with a very close connection to all things spiritual. It seemed that no matter how hard I tried, prayed, meditated, it just seemed to get worse. Even if I seemed to be growing spiritually....I don't know what to do anymore. I have tried the medications. Sometimes I think the psychiatrist's are just messing with my brain and that they don't know what they are doing. I have tried Reiki (Japanese art of healing), Soul Retrieval...but nothing seems to help for very long. I don't understand why this has to happen to me. Someone told me that I am meant to be a healer to help those with depression overcome. How can I help anyone if I can't seem to want to live? I haven't met or seen a spiritual healing practice that truly helps those with depression? Someone help me.

I pray for everyone suffering from depression and anxiety, lonliness and fear, myself included. Lord, leave us not alone during this time of seemingly unending darkness. We each have struggles and problems we must face, but we can't be overcomers without you. Lord, I relate to the woman who is struggling with being able to see her children, as her ex husband is not working with her. I pray for her ex and mine, that they would surrender or recommit their lives to You, that their hearts would be opened and softened towards their children and the children's mothers.
Help them to release all bitterness and unforgiveness. Help them to examine their own hearts and motives in the Light of Your Holy Spirit. Change their hearts towards their ex-wives Lord. Forgive them for their unforgiveness and bitterness and desire to "strike out" and withhold.
Lord, You are bigger than all of this,
please open the doors for our children
to come home to us. In your will
we pray. Amen
