Priscilla G
Orthodox Woman With Suicidal Desires

This is for my very close friend who is struggling against committing suicide, and she needs prayers.

Priscilla is a beautiful and caring person to everyone but herself. She has struggled with depression for a very long time, and has had suicidal tendancies before. She is a devout Orthodox Christian, and does not doubt God's power or the Church's value. She prays constantly, but struggles with going to church. Right now she is in treatment as she is afraid of herself and doesn't trust herself.
Please pray for her. She needs all the love and support she can get to make it through this dark time. Suicide is not the answer for her, and she knows that. Her tendancy to react without thinking is stronger than her knowledge that suicide is not the answer.

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

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

2. If she can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. By sending an e-mail to she will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

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

She is in our prayers.
