  1. A Prayer for Suicide Angels, Suicide Survivors, and the Suicidal
    by Kevin Caruso

    Let us pray…
    Lord Jesus Christ we ask that you help everyone who is suicidal.
    Guide them so they may receive the help that they need.
    Protect them.
    Prevent them from dying by suicide.
    We need them. We love them.
    Let them feel our love, and your love, Lord Jesus.
    Lord, we ask that you comfort the suicide survivors.
    Remind them that they are very special people.
    Remind them that they are heroes.
    Fill their minds with beautiful memories of their suicide angels.
    Provide them with everything that they need Lord.
    Ease their pain.
    Give them hope.
    Give them comfort.
    Give them guidance.
    Help them heal.
    And help them in every way possible.
    Let them feel our love, and your love, Lord Jesus.
    And let their suicide angels carry them on their wings when they are weary.
    Lord, we pray for the suicide angels.
    They are with you now, Lord, in Paradise.
    These angels are among the highest angels in Heaven.
    Their wings are magnificent and their beauty is beyond imagination.
    Their love shines bright.
    Embrace them, Lord Jesus, with your love.
    And let their love continue to shine down upon us.
    Amen.

    Sorry to be blunt but prayer has about as much effect as wishing upon a shooting star. Not trying to offend your beliefs I just have to tell the truth.

    Regardless, Zoh, prayer helps people gain peace of mind and aids them in dealing with their pain. Thus you really should save your derogatory posts for your own topics and let those with faith share their experience without their beliefs being attacked.

    Religious debate belongs where it is ushered in, not at the drop of a hat. Certainly you would be miffed if a Bible-thumper came in after each one of your posts about nihilism. That is tantamount to what you are doing - Bible-thumping your atheism at people. It doesn't help, even though you hold it to be true.

    You should start a new topic in the Soap Box area to express your views.

    Sorry for the hijack. Just to try to salvage my on-topicness, this prayer would be lovely to recite at an important anniversary or at a funeral, thanks for sharing it.

    What does this have to do with me being an atheist or nihilist? im simply saying prayer doesnt work because its the truth. Its true that praying, meditating, reading positive books etcetera can sometimes help relieve stress, but thats it, there is no type of divine intervention or help. My post wasnt an attack.

    Oh god, Zohmygob, you're back, heaven help us all. Maybe we should start a petition to get you off of here for good, Troll-Boy.

    Abandoned-at-10, it's a beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing :-D

    Ybt, Zohmygod's post is insulting to other members too, aren't you going to ask for that to be deleted? Or is it to suit your own beliefs? ;)

    i don't really find the other person's (i forget his name and am on no sleep and i'm not going back to check his name) post offensive. the only one i find offensive is calling him a troll.

    I think that maybe many people take strenght from prayers themselves, and not from a miracle that may come. Of course there are some people who prays and they wait that things happen (just like those who wish upon a shooting star)
    But I find this poem inspiring, and I like that

    I am new here and I didn't mean to start a religious/philosophical discussion.

    To those who found the prayer helpful, I am glad. That was my only intention. Nothing more.

    I say, I might have stay off of this site, if such a rude response (just one person's - I didn't find the others rude) is going to be evoked. I thought this was a support site, not a condemnation site.

    Again, to those who appreciated it, I am glad and I hope you have a nice day.

    Abandoned, forgive the few troublemakers who posted in here.

    I personally found it a moving prayer, even though I am in no way religious, (In fact, I could even be called an atheist.) I believe that anything that will ease a persons pain, is a blessing on us all.

    And please do not leave this place just because a few people reacted badly. You will come to find there are very nice helpful people here, and a handful that seem to enjoy 'trolling' as was said early.

    (You guys know who you are, and if you feel the need to ask me, PM me personally, don't clutter up a wonderful thread with a bunch of pointless arguments.)

    my post was in no way an insult at you my friend. i was just saying. You claim praying works, and I think it doesnt. simple as that. I apologize for being rude.

    Mostly the question is "How do you expect it to work?".

    Theres no proof of little green men but many believe in them. You have your opinion, fine. That is your truth. I do believe in prayer and that is my truth. I have no right to tell you that I am superior and my thoughts are more valid than yours. So please do not determine what is truth or not for me. Thank you.

    I agree reborn. We all find what works best for us. Our beliefs are not going to be the same. That is part of human nature. For those who believe in the power prayer, let them hold fast to this belief. For those that don't, then you don't have to pray. It is a personal choice, a conviction. In a time when so many people are struggling, we should not take away whatever choice they hold on to. The choice is ours and ours alone. Me I choose to pray.
