Suicide is the leading cause of death among adolescents and young adults. More than half of suicide victims reported depression or other mental health problems before their death.
Most suicidal people recover without treatment, but knowing that there is hope can help someone stay alive. People who are struggling with thoughts of suicide should talk to someone they trust, like a friend or family member, who can listen without judging them. Praying for them is one of the most effective ways to support someone struggling with suicidal thoughts.
O God, who has created the mind and who knows each thought, we ask for your healing touch to free those who suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts. We pray for comfort, forgiveness, and the strength to endure. Amen
