Ed Jones

I have been diagnosed with cancer, and my finances are rapidly dissapearing. I am in shock, and the treatments are taking thier tole on my body and mind. I am beginning to consider ending it all. Does God accept people who commit suicide?

Lord Jesus I pray for Ed Jones to be healed and delivered from the torment of the enemy. Ed all things are possible with God, he loves you very much. I pray God for you to put the person in Ed's path to continue to help him keep the faith. In Jesus Name. Amen

I pray that God will help you to be cured of your cancer and financial problems. You deserve to be happy as do all of us. Keep going and even though its hard dont let others dictate your life or tell you whats not possible because all things should be possible through God who loves us.

Please do not do that, Ed. Hope is one of God's most important gifts, and it is a terrible idea to throw it away. If your depression is that bad, I would suggest getting some psychological help (no matter the costs---just like with your cancer, you cannot put a price on your life). May God guide and bless you through this all, and I hope this helps.

Ed, try to stay positive & try to consider your options for developing new perceptions of life goals. My wife was diagnosed w cancer & told by her oncologist she had between 12-16 months - that was two years ago! She was just matron of honor at her best friends wedding last week, and enjoyed herself immensely! Point is, yes she has some tough days, but also has some very good ones! Please don't give up - the best days of your life may well be lying ahead for you!

Ed, blessed be God, do not think of doing such a thing. Ask God to take your burdens. I know your mind is racing with despair, but take a deep breath and slowly exhale. Try to find a peace within yourself and connection with God. I pray the hands of God are wrapped around you and his great compassion and healing love will come over you. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen and Amen.

Dear Ed,

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.
