  • Cousin committed suicide

    Last night my cousin hung herself. She had been battling major depressive disorder for over 15 years. Please say a prayer for her family and the children she left behind

          Oh dear Hamster. Having just been through similar (my sister-in-law) I knew how devastating it all is.

          We will be praying for you and all the family.

                          Prayers for your cousin and all those who commit suicide. It used to be assumed that this was an unforgivable sin, but it is the result of disease, a sickness, an overwhelming depression that warps one's view of reality. I pray for all those who cannot feel the hope that comes from God and his Christ. There is forginess for all.

                          ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

                          אָכֵ֕ן אַתָּ֖ה אֵ֣ל מִסְתַּתֵּ֑ר אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מוֹשִֽׁיעַ׃
