Urgent prayer needed for a friend…

 

blur-1867402_960_720

A world away in a far off place
He wanted to take his life in haste
There was nothing left that she could say
To make him feel a different way
Her saddened heart threatened to break
All of it was simply more than she could take
She couldn’t stop all the pain that existed
So she pleaded with him but still he resisted
She could relate to all the terrible pain
And thought she too might go insane
She prayed in the end that all would be fine
And only wished in her heart for some sort of sign
She asked for a promise that he would not quit
Which is hard to agree to when you’re down in the pit
But he swore to her that he would not leave
And she believed his words and it gave her some reprieve
Now if everyone would pray for this suffering soul
Pray that he would be made well and whole
For God doesn’t want any of us to suffer
A situation like this cannot be any tougher
And if any of you are feeling this way too
Remember that Jesus will carry you through

  1. Michelle, this is beautiful and so very sad, too. I just wrote a poem for someone who decided life on Earth wasn’t enough. I hope that your poem, and mine, tomorrow, will give hope to those who so desperately need it.

  7. If it gets too tough, that downward spiral is really out of control then often professional help is the best solution … we must do everything possible but in the end we are not responsible for another’s actions.
