Update and requests

Have an update on George. The 87 year old gentleman who cut his wrists. George was diagnosed with lung cancer one week prior and was told he had 6 months to live. He also has a blood clot in one lung. Having been active...a volunteer at many nursing homes, a baker who gave so much away, he felt as if he was being a burden to his family. Because he was on blood thinners, he injected himself with 14 vials of blood thinnner, then cut his wrists. His wife and daughter found him with a suicide note nearby. When asked about things, George says he is sorry that he did not "finish the job". Prior to getting the news about the cancer, George has been perfectly healthy. He is now in a facility to help him cope and adjust to the next step in his life. It is very clear that given the chance he would try again. This man and his family are surely in need of prayer. Please remember him. My Jesus Mercy.

Have some good news to report. Three months ago we prayed for John. The young man who threw himself down stairs. It was his second attempt. Things have gotten better..he is now enrolled in college in another city, and playing sports. He is getting his life back on track. We also prayed for his Mom. She is also getting the help she needs. We have so many powerful warriors here, intervening on behalf of these hurting souls. Praise God for his blessing on this family. And thank God for all the folks who prayed for this family.

please pray for two people who committed suicide, one of them about thirty years ago and the other more recently - thanks so much (The Lord knows their names.)

St. Faustina and the dying

Fran posted this to our Facebook group:

I came across this passage from St. Faustina and thought it might be helpful to folks:

"I often communicate with persons who are dying and obtain The Divine Mercy for them. Oh, how great is the goodness of God, greater than we can understand. There are moments and there are mysteries of the divine mercy over which the heavens are astounded. Let our judgment of souls cease, for God’s mercy upon them is extraordinary." (Diary 1684).

Please pray for the person who was trying to commit suicide Tuesday morning. I had a very strong expereince with hearing trains during Adoration and Mass. I was in tears and sick to my stomach.

I did not know how I was going to get through the day teaching. It really drained me. But after Mass and offering my Mass and Communion for this person, the Lord put me at ease and let me know that I should be joyful not sad because the prayers helped. I am grateful that God would use me in this way. I don't know if the person stopped or continued and repented, but either way, it is good. The trains stopped after Mass and I had a good day teaching.

Prayer for Those Contemplating Suicide

It is suggested to copy and paste this prayer and print out to pray every day.

Praying for Those Contemplating Suicide

O Lord and Giver of Life, may we all recognize the great value of the life You have given to each one of us. But look in a special way on those who no longer find any meaning in the life they are leading.
You can see every movement of the human heart and You knew what depths of despair, discouragement, frustration, loneliness, or self-hate have led them to the edge they are standing on.
Have mercy on them, and open their eyes to see that the road has not ended. Fill their hearts with new hope. Place people in their lives who will love them, with your own love, and who will give them a reason to live again. Make them know they are worthwhile and needed.
And Lord, if You wish to use me as your instrument in touching someone, feel free to do so. Amen

Sunday request

Please pray for Wendy who took her own life about a year ago.


Somene sent me this article. Please pray for this intention.

THE Japanese Government has warned of an epidemic of depression and suicide as a result of mental trauma caused by the earthquake, tsunami and ongoing nuclear disaster.

The country already has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, but new figures show that the number of deaths has risen almost a fifth compared with a year ago. In Miyagi, the region worst hit by the March 11 tsunami, the figures are especially alarming, with suicides up 39 per cent.

A government report is now warning that the stoicism of many victims in the early weeks of the disaster may mask post-traumatic stress disorder. This week a dairy farmer from the town of Soma, in the Fukushima region - near the crippled nuclear plant - was found to have hanged himself after being forced to sell his herd because of a ban on the sale of milk from the area.

"It is a characteristic of the Great East Japan Earthquake that, as well as stress caused by large and sudden changes to daily life and the traumatic experience of the earthquake and tsunami, there are feelings of grief and loss resulting from the huge number of people missing and killed," the Government said in the report.

"As well as grief, survivors also experience guilt because, although they tried to escape together, only some were saved. Then there is the shock of identifying bodies, for aid workers as well as victims, resulting in chronic depression or prolonged grief disorder."

The observations appear to be reflected in the new figures, which show an 18 per cent national increase in suicides. In May, 3,281 people killed themselves, 499 more than the same month in 2010. Suicides in Tokyo were up 27 per cent.

"Looking at the calm behaviour of many of the victims, we might assume that post-traumatic stress disorder caused by their experiences might be less than overseas," the report said.

"However, until we receive more detailed information, we cannot reach a simple conclusion."

Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, after Lithuania, several other former Soviet states and South Korea. In 2010, 31,690 people killed themselves in the country, the 13th consecutive year above 30,000.

Suicide rates are closely tied to national trauma. Numbers increased from around 25,000 to more than 30,000 a year in the late 1990s, at a time of widespread bankruptcies and lay-offs caused by the collapse of the so-called "bubble economy". The number has always corresponded to unemployment rates - both peaked in 2003, for example.

May is usually one of the worst months because of the low spirits at the beginning of the new corporate year - a condition known as gogatsubyo, or "May-itis".

Yoshiharu Kin, of the National Centre for Mental Health, said: "Many people recover within six months, but 10 to 20 per cent suffer from chronic conditions. Mental care after the disaster needs to work over several months and several years.

The holy souls are grateful

The holy souls are grateful for our prayers. Yesterday I was having a hard time starting my lawn mower. As I was getting frustrated with it, I heard a train whistle, which is always my reminder to pray for the souls in purgatory who have committed suicide. It dawned on me to ask for their help with my lawn mower, since I have been helping them. I did this, and the lawn mower started immediately, and I never had any more trouble with it the rest of the day!

Urgent prayer request

Please pray for Jessamyn, age 39, who tried to commit suicide on Sunday by taking prescription and over the counter drugs. This has done so much damage to her body that she has to have one of her legs amputated, a liver transplant and she has kidney failure.

Her aunt called me and asked for prayers and I told her that I was hearing trains like crazy Sunday morning, and prayed the Divine Mercy chaplet on my knees for a person who may be trying to commit suicide. Her aunt said it may have saved her life. I was getting ready for church at the time, and was in a hurry, when I was hearing the trains, and did not want to stop and get on my knees, but I did anyway. The lesson here is when we get that prompting from the Holy Spirit, to obey it.

Saturday, May 21, 2011


I would like to share something that a woman just sent me and said I could share:

"I have to tell you how much your story about the train and suicide touched me. Whenever I hear the train around here I think to pray for someone who is suicidal. The other day, I felt that my son's girlfriend was suicidal. It is a long story. I also heard a train twice. After Mass we all went out to lunch and then coming back to get my car I felt I just had to go in an pray for her. I even talked to my brother just before praying and saying that I felt real uneasy about her. Well, I said the Divine Mercy and then a Rosary. I found out later that night that she indeed was thinking of suicide."

Saturday request

This request was from a member of another group I belong to:
For the repose of the soul of my cousin Mike who committed suicide

Please pray for Jared, who committed suicide yesterday or the day before - thanks

Catching up

Forgove me if these are repeats. I am so behind on email. It is fun to go away for the weekend, but catching up upon return is overwhelming. Here are requests I think I did not post:

Please pray for Charlie, a high school senior who committed suicide on May 11.

Please pray for Hilary, who took his own life.

Please pray for Jeremy who struggles with drug addiction and attempted suicide.

Prayer request for Rosemary, a mother of three young children, who took her own life over the weekend. The family resides in the Philippines.

Please pray for Dean who is suicidal.

La Joya Police Chief Jose Del Angel, 44, took his own life. Please pray for his soul. (we usually do not use last names for privacy, but this was in the news.)

Please pray for Paul, who took his own life after killing his wife, her new partner, and his five year old daughter; leaving a 20mth old as an orphan. May God have Mercy on them all.

another one in the news: Please pray for Officer Philip Chlanda. A NYC Police Officer who killed himself this morning while on duty. May God have mercy on his soul.

He has been suffering for a long time and had no-one to talk to. Please also pray for Dorothy's son who she fears is at risk of suicide, his name is Kumbi. Thank you

Sunday, May 15, 2011

New request and encouragement

Please pray for a young girl named Marissa who is suicidal and cutting herself. I told her mother that I would try to find someone to spiritually befriend her and pray for her every day. Any takers? It would be nice to have someone that does not already have a friend to pray for.

I was at a conference this weekend, where I met Marissa's mother. Another lady came up to me and said that she sent the link to our website to a lot of people and that it is really helping people. I thought you would like to know that.

Also Dr. Rosalie Turton from the 101 Foundation spoke and she really impressed how importrant it is to pray that souls do not go to hell. She spoke about making sacrifices often for someone who is dying and in danger of going to hell - little things like giving up that cookie you wanted to eat, for a soul, etc. I thought this was a little confirmation for what we are doing here when we pray for those who are suicidal and even when we pray for those who have committed suicide, when we pray an anticipatory prayer that they were saved.

Friday, May 13, 2011

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

From Aaron's mother

This is from Aaron's mother, Mary who recently joined our group:

My dearest prayer family,

It has been 3 weeks since it was discovered that my son took his own life.
There are so many people that have asked me to keep them updated that I
find it easier to just send a general message. The past few weeks have been a
whirlwind of emotion to say the least. At the funeral Mass the church was
almost full. It was so incredible to me that so many people came. Family I
have not seen in 20 years, friends...
My pastor gave the most excellent homily, even though he had never met my
son, the homily had four points. Mercy, purgatory, love and grace. It was so
soothing and calming and mesmerizing. He said the Holy Spirit led him.
As I said the emotions have been overwhelming. Some new facts came out as
to the whys but they are not necessary. In the very early stages I have
given this all to God. I knew I would never be able to handle it alone. The
waves of tears still come and go but it is getting better. I know my son had
a difficult life, he battled drug abuse for 16 years. Some years were good
but most were a daily battle. I try only to think of the good. I know we
did everything that was in our power to help him, he just continued to make
poor choices. When he was clean he was so full of love and life, he loved
carpentry and building things, and he was very good at it.
So many people I speak to believe he is already in Heaven after so much of
a struggle. I know he believed in Jesus, he wore the crucifix everyday that
I brought back from the Vatican in 2006. I now wear it everyday. I also
am having Gregorian Masses said for him (if you do not know what they are
google them). They began yesterday (the Feast of the Annunciation) and will
conclude on Easter Sunday! What a gift! So many masses are being said for
him I can only think of satans defeat!!!
I just want to thank you all again so much for all of your prayers and kind
words and thoughts. I received hundreds of messages. It was truly amazing.
I love you all and will continue to pray for all of you each day.
God bless,

The Holy Spirit at work

A prayer request from a Facebook member:

On Ash Wednesday,I happened to meet a man named Phil who was taking the ashes of his friend who committed suicide to the ocean. He was visibly upset. I told him I would ask this wonderful group to pray for his friend Paul B. who died on Oct. 18th 2010. He then asked if I could also ask for prayers for another friend Joseph D. who also took his life on Feb.18th 2011. I ask for God's mercy for these souls and his peace for the friend they left behind...

This was the Holy Spirit at work.

Friday requests

A woman named Ann called me with a list of suicides. She had 15 names. She said she knew all of them. I don't want to post them all at once and overwhelm everyone, so I told her I would do a few a day. The following people all took their own lives last year: Bobby, Michele, and Eric. Please pray for the repose of their souls.

Ann does not have a computer but will pray ever day for the intentions.

She also asked for prayers for Lisa who is suicidal. Anyone want to "spiritually befriend" Lisa and pray for her every day?

Ash Wednesday requests

Please pray for young Charlie who took his own life last weekend.

Juanita has joined us to pray offline. She would like to add Thad who took his own life because of divorce.

This is from Aaron's mother. I posted about his suicide a few days ago. She said I could share this with you: "I am asking for more prayers for his soul which was in constant torment while he was alive. He was just 29 but has battled drug abuse since he was 13. It has been a very difficult road to watch him through the years. He always cried out for help and we were always there for him but he always pushed everyone away with both hands. He does leave behind a beautiful 3 year old daughter Madelyn. Please pray for her and her mother,Tracy and for Aaron's soul. I fully trust and believe that our God is a merciful one. "

It was over 20 years ago and his name is forgotten but his suicide was very sad as he didn't want to live anymore, so he waved at a train conductor as the train approached and then he laid his head on the tracks to end his life. May God have Mercy on their souls.

Offering it up

Tonight I attended the monthly Mass for the souls in Purgatory at my parish. Father thanked us for coming out in the bad weather to attend the Mass and said that the souls would benefit more from our coming to this Mass, than when the weather was sunny and pleasant. He said he himself had a cold and headache, but that the souls would benfit from that. He said, "The worse we feel, the better the souls will feel." Just a reminder about offering up our suffering for them.

From Robbey's mother:

"How grateful I am for your prayers! I literally see the Hand of God at work every single day in Robbeys life!

"If you didn't see the outward appearance of surgery and scars, you would never know that Robbey had an accident a month ago. His communication, memory retention is second to none..and he works very, very hard in rehab to get well in all facets of his life.
He spends roughly 4 hrs daily in occupational, physical, speech, cognitive thinking, psych, etc to get back to where he was...only better!"

Praying Can Help!

I read this in a newsletter I get from England:

Praying Can Help

Belief in God gives young people a greater sense of purpose, putting them at lower risk of depression and suicide, according to a report by Bangor University. Nearly three quarters of those who prayed daily were found to have a sense of purpose, compared with less than half of those who never pray.

More requests from the Facebook group

Former Chicago Bears player Dave died from a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner. His death has been ruled a suicide. We pray for his family and his friends who have loved and lost

I want to request prayer for a client of mine who today shared that her 26 year old daughter (Jamie) committed suicide. Evidently she (Jamie) had dealt with personality disorders her whole life and had been suicidal before. It sounded like she had depression problems too but she was arguing with her boyfriend and just couldn't handle it and went to her girlfriend's house and while there she killed herself. Please pray for Mercy for her soul.
Please also pray for her family, especially her twin sister. Her mother is Christian and she kept saying if she didn't have her faith she wouldn't make it. She kept saying that her daughter was saved and with Jesus now. I pray that through Jesus' Divine Mercy Jamie is with him.
I am just so startled like many others as to all the young people and people in general who have committed suicide. Jesus have Mercy on them and on us. Please Jesus reach your children who are hopeless. Let us bring the hope to them that only comes from you! Jesus I Trust In YOU!

Holy water for the holy souls

A lady sent me the following letter and gave me permission to share it:

I was taken with the article “Divine Mercy for Lost Souls.” I do not have a computer and I would like my brother-in-law added to your website. [already posted]
On November 19, 2000, Thomas shot my sister Tina and then himself, leaving 3 children ages 3,5,14. Thomas had a while Jeep and the time, so every time I see a white Jeep I’d say the Eternal Rest Prayer for him, and still do till this day.
I also am up at 3 AM and pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for those in danger, especially children and those contemplating suicide.
I have a friend whose husband worked on the railroad, and he passed away a few years ago and every time she’d hear the train whistle blow, she’d say, “That’s Joe calling me.” So I started saying the Eternal Rest Prayer for the holy souls. I hear the train whistle all hours of the night.
When the weather is good, I am at the cemetery with my holy water. I know of three graves of those who committed suicide. I find great consolation when I sprinkle holy water on their graves. I’ll have some of the articles about it (see below) wrapped in cellophane at the graves and hope someone will read them and pass them on to others, I’ve had people stop and ask me what I am doing and when I tell them, they get excited and want to do the same. Some even ask where I get the holy water. I have a spray bottle as it’s a lot easier. I just love the holy souls and those who are in Heaven are praying for me. It’s great!

Excerpt from “The Incredible Catholic Mass” by Fr. Martin von Cochet :

“The suffering souls also experience a great alle¬viation when the graves are incensed and sprinkled with holy water. The holy water does indeed only materially moisten the earth, but in its beneficient virtue it refreshes the souls in Purgatorv, just as the waters of Baptism falling on the head of the infant have power to cleanse his soul.
Therefore, see that you frequently sprinkle the last resting place of your friends with holy water, for thereby you will allay the heat of the flames that torture them.”

What an inspiration - update from Robbey's mother

June, I talked to Robbey's mother, Darlene tonight. She is an amazing women. She was having back surgery on the day this happened with Robbey. Now has more health issues and was close to dying, plus her husband has a bad heart and is really struggling with all that is going on. He is in NYC with her and travels back and forth between hospitals. his GPS broke today on the way to see his son and had a hard time getting there. there trials are amazing..but she said you could share this with your prayer warriors. Thanks so much

Dear Family and Friends..

Boy... does God have a sense of humor!!
When He says in His Word that He wants to grow us, stretch us.. and walk by faith... I have a completely new perspective on
what a faith walk is!

Most of you know that Robbey had a horrific accident in NYC, and is being hospitalized in New York.

As surreal as it was to receive a phone call from NYPD giving me info that Robbey was found on the metro subway tracks and was alive.. the first thing I said to the police officer is, "Do you see how big my God is, and how I thank Him for His Hand upon Robbeys life!!!!"

I am the mom who received a call that her son LIVED from falling 50-60 feet...

I am the mom who received the information that knew only the Hand Of God could land Robbey perfectly in between the rails of a subway, and in an area that the dirt between the rails was dug out whereby trains had passed over Robbey, but did not kill him;

I am the humbled mom who heard that a conductor saw something out of the corner of his eye, and thought it might be a body and brought all trains to a halt to further investigate..

I am the thankful mom who got a call from a LEVEL 1 Trauma center that spoke to me every hour over the next 36 hrs giving me information and accepting my permission to operate on Robbey 3 times within that 36 hr time frame.

I am the grateful mom that saw Gods Hand upon Robbey matter what the doctors report said, or what the doctors saw, felt, witnessed or believed..I know that "God has a future and a hope for Robbeys life and that God had not carried out that plan to fruition, and promised me He would "see it thru unto completion!!"

I am the most blessed mom that begin to call prayer warriors via family and friends who bombarded heaven with prayer on Robbeys behalf, and we CONTINUED to see miracle after miracle of Gods AMAZING Healing Power manifest in Robbeys life over and over again..

I am the mom who cannot quit praising and worshipping a Big God who honors the "effectual, fervent prayers of the righteous that availeth much!"

I got into NYC on an early Tuesday morning (2am) not feeling very well..

I went to see my Robo at Mt Sinai Hospital who has done nothing short of miraculous work with THEE Great Physician leading the team of specialists who have worked on Robbey.

I left Robbey at 4pm Tuesday evening.. I was taken by ambulance to Roosevelt hospital at 11pm that very night.

As I write this letter to you.. I am still in a hospital, but expecting to be released tomorrow. (after spending almost 2 weeks at Roosevelt Hosp.)

I was suffering with a perforated colon, (and will have surgery in about 8 weeks to remove a portion thereof...)
It was all so surreal that I was that sick and did not know it, much less having to spend 2 weeks in a hospital to get me to the point of going home to further heal in order to have surgery in a much healthier state.
I requested that they take me to the same hospital Rob was in, but they said their protocal required them to take the most direct route to the nearest medical center.. thus Roosevelt Hospital would be my destination.
As I lay in that ambulance.. God and me begin to talk, and I told Him I would take the high road as I knew He had both my best interest and that of Robbeys always as His First Priority. I thanked Him for taking me to a hospital where He would provide me with the best doctor to fix me up and send me home. I thanked HIm for His continued faithfulness to take care of my son..
That is soooo God.. Who knows better, than God as to how to take care of "their son?"

He blessed me with one of the finest surgeons I have ever met, and I could feel waves of peace flood my soul as I couldn't focus on anything for the first week other than that horrible pain I was experiencing and the fact that they kept me very sedated the first week to calm things down internally. However.. I could feel the incredible power of prayer as you lifted up my family in prayer. I could feel His Perfect Peace... I could feel worship in my spirit and in my heart for Him. I knew I was being cared for...

What God showed me so clearly during the separation from Robbey; Robbey being in one hospital and myself in another is that He does a much better job of taking care of my family WITHOUT me needing to be by their side.... All I had to do was focus on His Promises for my household and to.. "Put on the Garment of Praise for the spirit of Heaviness.."

The Power of Prayer is the greatest, most effective gift anyone could give to another person...
When anyone ask what they can do for me... without a doubt, the greatest, most powerful, cherish and coveted gift you can ever give me is prayer....
Prayer...It connects me on a super shuttle to heaven. It opens up the "Windows of Heaven and He pours out His blessings so much so that I cannot contain them.." He promises that if "We cast our care (concern) upon Him, He cares for us.."
He sends His Precious Spirit of Peace, Healing and Restoration thru the powerful words spoken in prayer!!

We are living proof of the outcome of prayer!! Robbey is alive today because of prayer. I am being well taken care of, and get to see Robbey tomorrow when I am released!!

My prayer for Robbey is that God directs me to the right people in hope of working out the logistics to see if we can get Robbey transferred to a Houston hospital for the remainder of his case. He has multiple surgeries ahead as well as the neuro/mental rehab that he must go thru..(the team of doctors here estimated that Rob would be in hospital/rehab for 4-12 months for full recovery)
It would be a huge financial and emotional burden to have Rob transferred to Houston and be surrounded by not only great med team, but family and friends who could visit and encourage him thru this healing process.

I was walking the halls at 3am and my spirit soared as I begin to sing Praise and Worship songs.. The words not only bring peace, but they empower you and take you to another level with God..

As I spoke with the Lord during my walks up and down the hallway.. I simply said over and over that no matter what.. I will always love you Lord.
No matter the outcome.. I know that You; Dear God have our very best interest at heart.. that He will never leave or forget about me.. and He has my family in the Palm of His Mighty Hand...

I don't know why there has been so much adversity, so many trials, challenges and what looks like the biggest mountain to climb in our lives, but this I do know... My God is so much bigger than it all! While I don't think my shoulders are broad enough to cope with one thing after another.. I assure you that my glass is half full!

All I have to do is look over my shoulder, and there is a multitude of people that would give ANYTHING to be in my shoes..

I am so blessed to have a Father who loves and cares so much for my family....

Your prayers for us are priceless..
From a grateful heart for your continual prayers for us...

Much love,


Thank You,

Brand new to this wonderful group; I feel that it's so important to pray for souls in purgatory. You opened my eyes to pray for those who took their own life or died in a violent way. Initially I thought I didn't know anyone who committed suicide, but upon thinking about it, there are actually two people. One is the brother-in-law of my brother who took medication to stop smoking not aware that a side effect is depression and thoughts of suicide. His family didn't know he was taking this drug. The other is the brother-in-law of another brother, don't know why he took his own life. Please pray for Leland and for Leroy. Thank you all

And yet more Friday requests

Please pray for Thomas whom committed suicide and for my stepfather (70's now) whom was effected by this to this stepfather was a young kid when he walked in as his father pulled the trigger.

Please pray for my friend, Bob, who committed suicide April 20, 1999. I still feel sad every time I think of him. Also, an 18 yo who died in Nov, 2010, named Zak.

Please pray for Scott who committed suicide in 2008. Scott lost his mother at a very young age and I am sure the family is devastated.

just found out earlier today, that Jordan, a 16 year old son of a friend from high school committed suicide two weeks ago. Jordan's family and friends are devastated and at a complete loss... please pray for all of them...

More Friday requests

I live in Northern Ireland and we at present have an epidemic of young people even as young as eleven taking their own lives.

Please pray for the eternal repose of Angelo, an elderly and retired army who took his life recently. May God have mercy on his soul.

I would ask for prayers for a friend of mine, Julie, who committed suicide two years ago in November. She was a sweet soul who was suffering terribly from a broken relationship & heart. No one knew she was in such great pain as she decided to take her own life. I pray that God has spared her as she grew up with terrible messaging from her parents ("I wish you'd never been born" type of words) and I think she suffered with this throughout her life. I believe Christ, in his mercy, takes this into account as the Cathecism also notes. Thank you for your prayers for her.

Please pray for Leigh Ann. Her baby William died from a heart condition one week after he was born in August last year. She feel into a deep depression. She commited suicide in November. Also, please pray for her family she left behind. Rest in peace Leigh Ann with your baby William....

Prayer requests - one of many to come

I am off work today and can finally get caught up with all the prayer requests. I am going to be sending quite a few today from the Facebook page. The follwoing are ones that were sent to me personally. There is one suicdal person in these intentions. If you are interested in spiritually befriending a suicidal person, to pray every day in a special way for that person, to be like a "guardian angel", let me know. Here they are:

I ask for prayers for a man named Jim who continues to attempt suicide for years. He has been suffering with severe depression probably for 20 years. Gone to Dr.'s etc. Stop taking meds. I am angry at the grief he has caused his adult children.

Please pray for my son, Chris, he committed suicide on November 7, 2006. He was going through a rough divorce and was depressed. I pray he is safe in Heaven.

I'd like to request prayers for my son Brian, who killed himself at the age of 12 on 7 Feb 1996. The tragedy of this event is beyond my ability to describe.
My friend’s family was hushed about her death but we, her high school friends figured out that she committed suicide. She had a problem and on top of that, she was pregnant. Her name is Elizabeth and she died in 1983. I’ve been praying for her as I dreamt of the Blessed Virgin Mary way back that she was in POOR STATE. With all the prayers, masses that we offered for her, I have a feeling that her release in Purgatory will come soon, with God’s Mercy. Please include her as well as the son of my Mom’s friend, Rowen that committed suicide too as he was heartbroken maybe back in the 80s too, can’t remember the year.

Healing Mass

I went to a healing Mass tonight and printed out the list of suicidal people and put the list in the petiton basket in front of the altar. Father usually leaves the petitions there a week or two, so they will be there for all the Masses and in front of the Blessed Sacrament 24/7.

Tuesday Prayer request

I have been overwhelmed with prayer requests because of the publicity on spiritdaily. Thanks be to God we gained a lot of new members. Over the next few days I will try to post the requests from the Facebook site here too. For right now, I am asking prayers for Joe who is suicidal.

If anyone would like to "spiritually befriend" Joe and be like a guardian angel, praying for him everyday in a special way, let me know.

It would be really great if all the suicidal people could be "spiritually befriended" by someone. The list is on our website, and is updated on weekends. I will indicate the ones who have already been "befriended."
I use the word "adopted" before, but it does not seem like an appropriate word since most of these people are adults.

Praying for ones who pushed a soul to commit suicide

I got a note today from a lady named Mary who wrote:

The Lord gave me the same inspiration as yours, to pray for suicides. I wanted to share with you that the lady who saw the poor souls, Maria Simma, said that the Lord holds accountable people who may have mistreated or pushed the person to suicide [bullies]. From this, I saw that when I pray for souls who commit suicide, I need to pray also for those who may have contributed to the person's despair. So I pray for all suicides and everyone connected to them. So that includes their families, loved ones, their enemies and their enemies' families. Also, bullying has become a media topic. I believe the Lord wants us to pray for everyone involved in bullying. That includes the victims, the perpetrators, their families, loved ones, their enemies. I think the Lord wants us to pray for all of these souls because bullying of children/adolescents can lead to suicide and because both bullies and victims can be very wounded souls. Divine Mercy is the only answer, as you know

More prayer requests

these requests are from the Divine Mercy website comments after my story:

Please pray for a man named Rick - killed himself a few years ago by throwing himself in front of a train

Recently in our area two very young children, Martin 13 and Ciara 11 took their own lives.

My nephew Mann committed suicide a few years ago...he was only in his 20s. He was born with a deformed lip and was badgered throughout life. His girlfriend had just broken up with him and he threatened suicide. She called his parents and when they went looking for him they found him in the garage, dead.

Tuesday prayer requests

From the Facebook group:
This is from a January 9th post by Vigil for Life:

Just learned that a woman in Milwaukee (who sidewalk counselors valiently tried to prevent from getting an abortion, but couldn't) committed suicide after her abortion. Please pray for her.

and again from Vigil for Life, on Dec. 1st, 2010:

Just received a phone call about a young man named John who tried to commit suicide last night. He's in the UW Hospital, and the family is being advised to pull the plug. Please pray for the man's life to be preserved and for his soul.
(they later that day posted that he had died)
My Grandfather shot himself (during the depression) when my Father was 12 years old. My Father was in the next room, heard the shot and found his Father's body. Years later, my Grandmother, who suffered from severe depression, overdosed on pills and slashed her wrists. I was 4 at the time. My Father, an only child, found her. My poor Father had nightmares about this until the day he died (from cancer). Please pray for them all.

Monday Prayer Requests

Please pray for Robert, a doctor, who killed himself many years ago. His ex-wife prayed that he would be saved, and got a confirmation that he was.

Please pray for Thomas and Tina. Thomas murdered his wife Tina on 11/19/00
and then killed himself.

Please pray for John who committed suicide on 3/13/01. His broken-hearted father became Catholic after reading what the Catechism has to say about suicide. (His Protestant upbringing taught him that people who committed suicide went to hell.)
He received the Sacraments of Initiation in July and died two months later on September 11, 2001.

And last, but not least, please pray for a 19 year-old girl who tried to hang herself, but survived, thanks be to God, without any brain damage.
