Prayers against suicide
Lord Almighty I call upon your name this morning and ask that you protect your children against suicidal thoughts and actions. I ask that you help us renew our minds with your word, as it mentions in Romans 12:2. Lord we stand in one accord and speak against suicide. We speak against the enemy and rebuke the flaming arrows he throws at us.
God let us see ourselves as you see us. Let us see beauty in the mirror. Not beauty by the world’s standards, but by your standards. Let us see purified hearts, fruits of the spirit, and your light shining through us. God, I beg you to please tell anyone struggling with self-harming thoughts or desires how much they mean to you. Let each person know that they are precious to you, and that you have a PLAN for them in this life which does NOT include suicide.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
Father, give us the strength to call on your name. Your word is our sword in battle, and your word says that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
Give us power over the enemy, give us strength to whisper the name of Jesus when we battle these thoughts. Help us see that our value comes from you alone, and not from bullies or people in this earth who say hurtful things, or people who hurt us, and definitely not from the lies of the enemy. Give us discernment to know what comes from you, and what comes from the enemy.
We lift your name in glory, we give you honor and praise.
It is in your holy name we ask these things, amen.
