Fighting Depression

Suicide will happen please pray for my wife and 13yr old daughter that doesnt deserve this pain

I have been fighting suicidel thoughts since sometime in the late 1980's, during time in the Military. I am not worried about death I actually welcome it, however, this life has been too cruel to my young daughter, and wife. They have never known poverty and now that we are at the bottem, or should I say the end of our rope, I am having a difficult time looking into my daughter's eyes. We have lost everything and now my health is starting to fail. I keep thinking their life would be better with me out of the way. I have destroyed thier lives. I used to have a very strong faith,but I must admit I need help with my faith I am startign to feel less in love with a God that would hurt a 12yr old girl that has done nothing to deserve this. Please I beg you pray for my family, not me I am already lost.

Dear David,

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. 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. (helplines worldwide)

2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called 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.
