Karen P
Prayers needed for Debt Relief

Recently married and in much debt. My new husband kmows nothing of this debt. My only lie to him. I am sickened and depressed because I can't work harder to get the money I need to clear up my debt.

I am a 53 year old Registered Nurse. I have worked hard all my life. I work with the Geriatric population and nursing has been my life. I got myself into financial trouble prior to my marraige. My husband knows nothing about it. It sickens me to lie, but if I tell him he will divorce me. I am depressed. I lay awake at night thinking of ways of getting money. I've even thought of suicide. I feel it would be better than facing him with the truth. Our relationship is strained because all I do is think about money. God has blessed me with a beautiful career. But it is not enough. Please help me to have strength to get through this financial crisis. I'm doing all I can at the moment. Nothing is helping. Maybe your prayers will help me. God bless you.

Dear Karen,

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.
