Prayer Request ~

Dear faithful friends and bloggers . . .

It is with a heavy heart that I put these words together
My 39-year-old son committed suicide early this morning.
He leaves behind his wife and four children ages 18,16,5 and 3.
I pray that you will keep them in your hearts and prayers.

Our God is a good and gracious God full of tender mercy and grace
His loving kindness never ceases and His peace is unimaginable.
He is my strength and my might. I trust Him with all my heart
and feel His presence in my life as He takes me through this journey.

I will return with more poetry soon,
I am sure He will use this time to give me more words
to bring Him glory and praise.

  • Freedomborn ... Aussie Christian Focus

    Dear Deborah, I’m praying you will hold fast to the Truth that right now Jesus is holding you very close and your family too, below is some Scripture He gave me when a very violent Storm of suffering shattered my life, right now it all seems unreal to you I know but never let go of the Hope you have in God’s Love, He cries with you and He will always be there for you, I know because He was there for me and still is, how great is His Love, just as you shared in your beautiful poetry.

    I’m also here if you need me, just e-mail if you want to talk, I really do care and Love you as my Sister in the Lord.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

    Christian Love Always from us both – Anne

    I am so sorry and my condolences go out to you as well as my prayers for you and your son’s family. This is a hard pill for all of you to swallow. Yet we know that God is still there and you are not alone. You will be in prayers.
    But first take time to heal. Take the time you need to find your peace in God and take time to feel his comforting arms around you.

  • lensgirl53

    Hello Deborah Ann, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. A good and mutual friend from WordPress asked me to pray for you. I, too, have lost a son to suicide. I know the heartbreaking path you are on and will be on for the rest of your life as you try to understand and accept your son’s death. Please know I have said my prayer and will continue to pray for you and the family. I am here and have dedicated my blog for the sole purpose of trying to understand what causes suicide. There is so much to consider. I have also used it as a memorial to my son.

    There are the natural questions about our faith and God. I hope that my blog will be of some comfort to you and that you will feel free to contact me if there is anything I can do for you at all. Our God is a loving, heavenly Father who holds our hearts and souls closely…as He is holding our sons. God bless you.

  • Brother John Axford

    Dear sweet lady, minister in Godly poems. My heart and SPIRIT REACHES OUT TO YOU Across the miles and webspace to share your grief, and the love you had got your son. It is my hope that sometime in his life he had chosen to ask that all important thing. Lord Jesus come into my heart and be my lord and savior. If he did he is with God tonight. Jesus tells us in His Word that God places belivers in JESUS HANDS, AND NO ONE CAN TAKE THEM FROM ME. So we ask that you do not let grief be in you heart and life for a long time. It is from the enemy and not the Lord. It can steal your peace and you life. There is a season for everything, according to everything, but grief is not your friend. We lift you and your sons family in prayer. Receive the peace of God that passes all understanding. God bless you all.


  • Pure Glory

  • John & Teri

    Dear Deborah Ann and Family, No words can I give to ease your heartache so I give you my prayers that He will be with your son and with you and your family as you work through this tragedy.

    May the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit help you as you grieve and give you comfort when you mourn.

    In a sermon I once heard the story of a mother who had a son that committed suicide ask a pastor what God would do with her son when he came before Jesus in heaven. The pastor answered, what would you do if you could see him again? She answered, “I would rush to him and hold him.” The pastor said, “God doesn’t love him any less than you…He will rush and hold too!”

    May God bless you in all the days ahead. -Teri Pizza, Gatlinburg, TN
