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.

    Thank you so much for this prayer. I have been beset with thoughts of ending it all as I am just so exhausted by picking myself up over and over again. I find myself researching ways to kill myself but those pages freeze on me as if God is showing me that he doesn’t want me even entertaining this even further. Today, I came across Psalm 71 which really helped and then literally googled “prayer to overcome thoughts of suicide”. Thank you for sharing your journey and this powerful prayer. Please keep me in your prayers as I fight this battle between my will to live and die.

      I’m sorry I am responding so late, but I believe there’s a reason I didn’t see this until now. You will be in my prayers. In fact, I am praying against the spirit of suicide in you right this very moment. I pray for your heart to beat with the love of God, so you have the desires He does. He wants to see you live, flourish, and prosper happily in life. I’m praying His overwhelming presence of love surrounds you when you start to think of ending your life. I’m praying that your will to live be stronger than your will to die.
      Blessings to you my dear. Contact me any time. I’ll be sure to respond sooner! -Caitlin

      Mara,

      Thank you for being so courageous and reaching out to me. First of all I’d like to tell you how very loved you are by God. You might not see it, you might not feel it, but it is a fact.

      God, I ask that you reach down from the heavens to comfort Mara with whatever she is facing. Help her to understand Your love for her past what “makes sense”. Please come into her heart and let her know that she is a beloved daughter of yours, precious, special, and unique. She is called to a purpose (and is on this Earth for a purpose) and I ask that as she actively seeks that purpose, that you will show her. I ask these things in Your holy name, Amen.
