Turning the Page on Suicide Podcast–Prayer, A Cry

Welcome to Turning the Page on Suicide. Twenty-three years ago I made a choice based upon Hebrews 11:1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. I was anorexic, pregnant and very much alone. Or so I thought. One small little desperate prayer moved all of heaven to greet me. I encountered Hebrews 11:1 three different times from a variety of sources. After the 3rd, I sat down, opened my hands and prayed, Lord, I’ve made a mess of everything, what can you do with this?

That was it, that little tiny cry for help was clearly and distinctly heard. I was given a home, support from godly men and women, and a chance to start a new life. The old things passed away. Maybe a groan is all your spirit can manage today. I promise you, that is enough. God hears. And with that cry, answers come in small and big ways. Just ask.

My life started with a cry for help. https://www.chirpapp.com/audiopost/ldNYQ9ANgX

Reduced to Prayer

Luke 22:39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed Him. 40 When He came to the place, He told them, “Pray that you will not enter into temptation.”

41 And He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, where He knelt down and prayed, 42“Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.”

43 Then an angel from heaven appeared to Him and strengthened Him. 44 And in His anguish, He prayed more earnestly, and His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.c

 

Conversation, smallest unit of trust,

on which faith’s DNA is shaped into obedience.

In the garden heaven multiplies cells of lush truth

while relating to our God.

Willing clay shaped by willing love.

So that, when we are tempted to despair, we are never alone.
