Martha A
Helpless in California

My family and I are hurting, starting with my separation from my husband of 19 years, the death of my father-in-law, and recently the death of my father. My oldest boy was recently in a very bad car accident.

I'm hurting Lord, and lost my way. My husband and I are separated, and my kids have been suffering. My dad died last August, but was blessed to have him move in with me after his many strokes and took care of him until the end. I lost my job, and my husband says he wants to get back together, so please God, help heal our hearts and show the way back to each other. My oldest boy and a friend were in a car accident, and was told that they should have been killed. I know the Lord has great plans for him, but I'm fading. My health isn't good, and I seem to have given up hope and the will to live. I am always the first to come running to offer a hand, but never asked for help until now. If we are supposed to move, then please open up another door and show us the way. Sometimes I see and feel strange occurrences in this town and it scares me. I'm asking for your help Lord, and everyone who has it in their hearts to pray for us, as I pray for all of you. I'm asking in your name God to help heal me and my family.

Dear Martha,

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.
