To Bill Nye The Science Guy

I was watching CBS this morning and saw Bill Nye say that we shouldn't teach kids creation but teach them evolution. To see all he said please click the following link http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505270_162-57501492/bill-nye-on-creationism-critique-im-not-attacking-religion/ . Well Mr.Bill Nye you got a few things wrong. First off the very first scientists were Christian. Don't believe me?? Well here are a few links that support this claim. http://www.christianpost.com/news/stephen-hawkings-leap-of-faith-46753/ , http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/sciencefaith.html , http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/1998/02/18/100-scientists-believed , http://www.christianity.co.nz/science4.htm  , http://www.patheos.com/Library/Christian-Science.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Christian_thinkers_in_science . There are way more those are just a sample few who support the claim that the very first scientists were Christian. There also books that support this claim and the claim that you can be a Christian and a scientist at the same time. These books are Science And Health Third Edition 1881 by Mary Glover Eddy, Christian Science Its Clear Correct Teaching One Volume by Herbert W. Eustace, Lectures And Articles On Christian Science by Edward A. Kimball, Compendium For The Study Of Christian Science No.9:Truth by Max Kappeler, Compendium For The Study Of Christian Science No.2: The Seven Days Of Creation by Max Kappeler, Compendium For The Study Of Christian Science No.4 Mind by Max Kappeler, Compendium For The Study Of Christian Science No.5 Spirit by Max Kappeler, Introduction To The Science Of Christian Science by Kathleen Lee and Max Kappeler, Compendium For The Study Of Christian Science No.8 Life by Max Kappeler, The Exchange Of Truth: Liberating The World From The Lie Of Evolution by David Shormann, A Century Of Christian Science Healing 1866 - 1966 by the Christian Science Board Of Directors and there are many others again that's just a sample of the books the support the claims that the first scientists were Christian and that you can be a scientist and Christian at the same time. Here are some links to support the claim that you can be a scientist and Christian in this day and age http://christianscience.com/ , http://www.csmonitor.com/ , http://www.christianscience.org/ , http://www.beliefnet.com/Faiths/Christianity/Christian-Science/index.aspx , http://www.csinsanjuancapistrano.com/ , http://christiansciencedc.org/index.php , http://www.religioustolerance.org/cr_sci.htm , http://jsh.christianscience.com/ , http://carm.org/christian-science , http://www.christiansciencenys.com/ , http://www.christianscienceindiana.org/ , http://sdchristianscience.org/new/html/index.php , http://www.kcchristianscience.com/ , http://www.christiansciencecambridge.org/ , http://www.christiansciencegeorgia.com/ , http://www.christiansciencect.org/ , http://christianscience92024.com/ , http://christianscience.com/prayer-and-health/the-bible-and-science-and-health/christian-science-bible-lesson  and http://www.lii.net/tcscb/ again this is just a sample there are dozens more links that support the claim that you can be a Christian and a scientist in this day and age. Also evolution is wrong and there is proof of this. Don't believe me?? Ever seen snow under a microscope?? Every snowflake is different no two are like. With Zebra's each has a different stripe pattern no two are alike. Ever seen the designs of butterflies?? No two are alike. No two human beings are alike. Oh sure we have twins and triplets and so forth but still each human being is unique. No one will ever think exactly like you, feel exactly like you, experience things the exact way you do, see things the exact way you do, perceive things the exact way you do,  think like you do, laugh like you, sing like you, dance like you, walk like you, talk like you, learn like you and so much more. Your telling me all that is just an accident?? That all that just happened to be that way?? Do you not see how ridiculous that is?? Take the tree if something harms it the tree can heal itself. When it rains the water in the ground goes up in the tree. Since when does water go up all by itself?? Still sure that evolution is true?? How can you be so sure?? After all scientists have been wrong before. There was a time when scientists thought and believed that we lived on the back of a giant turtle and that when the earth moved the turtle moved, that scientists were convinced the earth was flat, when scientists believed that the atom was the smallest thing until they opened up and discovered smaller things. Are you so arrogant and stubborn to not think that maybe just maybe evolution is wrong?? Still not convinced?? Even Darwin himself admitted that he was wrong. Don't believe me?? Here are some links that support the claim of Darwin admitting he was wrong http://www.theologyweb.com/campus/archive/index.php/t-2052.html , http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/2004/11/06/national-geographic-wrong , http://www.bible.ca/tracks/b-darwin-was-wrong.htm , http://logosresearchassociates.org/projects/darwin-was-wrong/  and there are more again that's just a sample. Still not convinced?? Birds prove that natural selection is wrong and so do many other animals and insects. If a bird wing evolved then at first it would have been to small to fly with and would have had no use. So why would the bird go any further and then fly?? Why would the bird continue for millions of generations improving a wing that's useless?? Not like birds can see into the future or reason like we can that maybe someday it maybe useful. Species without a link prove evolution is wrong. Many species have no link at all and so scientists make up species to fill in the gaps. Single cell complexity proves evolution is wrong. The most modern laboratory is unable to create a living cell. Human egg and sperm proves evolution is wrong. How on earth would an egg or sperm go inside a human all by itself without mistaking female for male or male for female?? How would the sperm know all by itself to fertilize the egg and know how to do that?? How would the egg know all by itself how to work with the sperm in order to be a child?? How does the heart keep beating and know to keep doing that all by itself?? How do cells know how to reproduce all by themselves?? How does DNA find problems and fix them all by itself?? How does the brain retain knowledge and get the body to do many functions all by itself?? If evolution is true then how come when I visit the zoo I never see a monkey suddenly turn into a human?? If evolution were true it would keep happening and it doesn't. I never seen anything evolve into anything else live have you?? You ever seen something turn into something else in front of your eyes?? I haven't. And yet life is being created every day. Creation keeps happening cause its true. You secular scientists say the earth got here by a big bang. What caused the bang?? Why did the bang happen?? Why should the bang happen?? If evolution is true then life is meaningless. Whats the point in living if after all in the end your just gonna die and then that's it no more you?? Its all chasing after wind. There is no point in living if evolution is true. Why have a job?? Why get married?? Why have children if it all means nothing?? If its all an accident then why are you you?? Why isn't someone else you?? If its an accident then whats the point in life?? Whats the point in you being here?? Why were you born?? If evolution is true then your an accident you have no purpose at all and you will go about life for no reason whatsoever and then you will die and then no more you. You'll just be dead no bells or whistles no parades no trumpets you'll just be dead. If evolution is true then your basically dead anyways. Just milling about without cause or direction after all why have direction?? If evolution is true then why try and find a meaning to life?? Why do we bother trying to be a good person?? After all if evolution is true then there is no GOD to judge you so why bother being good?? If there is no GOD why do we even have laws?? How do we know right from wrong?? Without GOD who is to say what is right or wrong?? Without GOD why bother being a good person?? What would be the point in that?? Why not steal, lie, murder and do whatever we want if there is no GOD to answer to?? You say those things are wrong well why?? If there's no GOD then why are those things wrong and who said they were wrong?? Who decided those things were bad or wrong?? You know when you have done wrong you may have heard a little voice tell you that something isn't a good idea or maybe you just had a gut feeling that it wasn't right. Well if there is no GOD then why do you hear that or have that gut instinct?? What would be the point?? Why bother evolving a little voice or gut instinct to tell you right from wrong if there is no GOD to judge you?? Without GOD how do we know that stealing, lying, murder and other things are wrong?? Without GOD well maybe those are good things?? Who's to say there not good if there is no GOD?? Who has any right at all to judge right from wrong?? From bad from good?? Without GOD how do we define whats right or wrong or whats good or bad?? Without GOD there is no such thing as good or bad. Infinite good has to exist first before you can say whats bad. Gotta have something good to compare what things are bad to. Gotta be able to tell the difference somehow. How do we do that if there is no GOD?? You say Bill Nye that your not attacking religion. Well yes actually you are and your attacking the One in charge as well. You say not to tell children of creation. Ok ya lets tell every kid that their an accident, life has no meaning or purpose and that sooner or later they'll just die and not exist anymore. See how well that goes. While your at it don't tell the kids what to do don't punish em anymore cause after all with no GOD there is no good or bad so no point in punishing them might as well let them run wild and do whatever they want. To say evolution is right is to say there's no GOD and that is attacking religion Bill Nye like or not that's the way it is. Humans did not come from some dumb pond we are created and created in the image of GOD. Don't believe me?? Well to be in the image of GOD means we resemble Him in some way like the way we resemble our parents. We may look a bit like them or have there same humor or whatever but we are not a carbon copy of our parents. Ok so how do we resemble GOD?? Remember I say resemble we are not carbon copies of GOD. So we are only like Him a little bit. So first is GOD is infinitely good. Alright well we do some good things. We give to charity, we help the homeless, we help the old lady across the street and stuff like that so we do good things. We ourselves are not good but are capable of doing some good acts so that's how we resemble GOD's goodness. Next is GOD is infinitely beautiful and not just externally. Ok well some of us externally look pretty nice and are not to hard on the eyes lol. Naw we are all beautiful in our own ways and not just on the outside. Like Mother Therese we all know had a beautiful soul and that's how we resemble GOD's beauty. Next is GOD is infinitely caring. Ok well we do care about one another's  well being and well fare. We care about our families and friends and pets. That's how we resemble GOD's caring. Next is GOD is infinitely forgiving. Well we do forgive one another and we can move on from past hurts and that's how we resemble GOD's forgiving. Next is GOD is infinitely faithful. Well you ever had a bff aka best friend forever?? You ever had a friend who was as loyal as a dog?? Seemed like no matter what you did you couldn't get rid of em. Or maybe your one of those people who just hang on no matter what cause that's what friends and family do. Well that's how we resemble GOD's faithfulness. Next is GOD is infinitely friendly. Well we have all had a friend at least once in our lives so we are friendly and that's how we resemble GOD's friendliness. Next is GOD is infinitely just. Well we do have a court system and we have some fair judges out there. We do like fairness and will fight for equality. Well that's how we resemble GOD's justness. Next is GOD is infinitely loving. Well we do love our families, our friends and our pets. We even love ourselves. That's how we resemble GOD's lovingness. Next is GOD is protective. Well we can be very protective of our family, friends and pets. We will even die to protect others. That's how we resemble GOD's protectiveness. Next is GOD is infinitely trustworthy. Well some of us can keep secrets and we know who we can trust to keep our secrets. When our children grow we trust them with more responsibility.  We can be trusted to not steal when working in the bank, not tell secrets while working for the FBI, not to be a traitor when in the army or navy or marines and other things like those. That's how we resemble GOD's trustworthyness. Next is GOD is infinitely understanding. Well we can understand one another to a point. Especially if we have been through what someone else has. That's how we resemble GOD's understanding. There are dozens more that's just a sample of how we resemble GOD and are made in GOD's image. We can't be or do any of that if we are just accidents its impossible. We can't evolve characters like those its impossible. Why even bother having those characters with no GOD to judge us?? Why be thankful if there is no GOD to thank for everything?? Why do you even complain if there is no GOD to complain to?? In order for us to complain there has to be something wrong. Ok well if evolution is true then wrong has always been around so if that's true then wouldn't we be used to it by now?? If there is no GOD then who told the earth to be round?? Who set the boundaries for the waters?? Who set the time for the sun to go down and the sun to come up?? Who decided on how far away the sun and moon are?? Who decided on how hot the sun is?? Who decided on the seasons and when they come?? Who decides on when it rains and how long it rains?? Who decides on how cold it has to be for ice and snow?? Who decided on where there are mountains, volcanoes and rivers?? Who decided to call it night or day?? Who laid the earths foundation?? Who marked off the dimensions of the earth?? Who put the limits on the clouds and decided how much rain they can hold?? Who decided on weather we get hail or snow?? Who decides on which direction the wind blows or what temperature it is?? How did the constellations get there without GOD?? Why should the stars make themselves into designs?? Who put the stars in place?? Who decided where the black holes should be?? Who decides on when stars are born and when they die?? Who decides on our lifespan?? Who gives orders to our DNA?? Who told the earth how fast to revolve?? Who is responsible for everything?? Tell me if you know.... This creation demands a Creator. The Creator is GOD Almighty. GOD has revealed Himself to us in the Bible. We wouldn't know anything about Him if He didn't. There is coming a time when GOD will judge this earth. You need to decide on if you wanna follow Him or not. You may not have a later in which to decide so now is as good a time as ever. Cause if there is a GOD and there is then He will judge you. Now GOD doesn't wanna punish you. But a price needs to be paid. See the reason why there's wrong around on this earth is people are born with sinful natures. So we sin in thought, word and deed on daily basis constantly we can't help ourselves because its in our nature to sin. And GOD is infinitely holy and pure and good and perfect and just. He has to punish the sin. Payment needs to be made. If GOD didn't punish the sin then there is no such thing as good or bad and we can lie, cheat, steal and murder and other things and it wouldn't matter. In order for there to be no punishment a price has to be paid for sins. The price and punishment of sin is death. Sin has to be killed as there is no other way of getting rid of it. So we not only have to die a natural death but an eternal one as well. Without eternal punishment there is no point to not lying, or cheating, or stealing, or murdering or other things like those. Without eternal punishment we could still do what we wanted and it wouldn't matter. Why eternal?? Well why would we be afraid of it if our punishment was only for a little while and then over?? We wouldn't be and we could still do what we wanted as it still wouldn't matter. We need to realize and know that sin matters. Ok so none of us want eternal punishment. So what do we do?? Well we do nothing as GOD took care of that. See since He's GOD He knew we'd mess up and sin and that we wouldn't be able to help ourselves. And thing is GOD wants a relationship with each and every one of us but can't have one with sin in the way. And GOD loves us so He decided that He wanted a relationship with us so bad and loved us so much He decided on sacrificing His only Son. So when the time was right Father GOD sent His Son Jesus to us and Jesus left all the pleasures of Heaven. See in Heaven Jesus is worshiped all the time non stop and He gets never ending glory, honor and praise. In Heaven there is no sin or death or pain or temptation to deal with. But Jesus decided to leave all that and come down here and be mocked, beaten, spat upon, ridiculed, humiliated, slapped, whipped and murdered. Jesus came and took our punishment and all we deserve. Jesus died so we don't have to, Jesus had His Father turn His back on Him so that the Father can turn to us. The Father can't look at sin that's why He turned away. So why did Jesus do that for us?? He didn't have to. He doesn't need us for company or for anything at all. That is alot to go through He must have had a reason. No one does all that just to see how it feels or for something to do. And it's not like GOD to do things for no reason. He might not tell us His reason but He does have a reason for what He does. Jesus decided to die for our sins and take our punishment because He loves us infinitely. Why does He love us?? Cause that's His character. GOD is love 1 John 4:8 NIV. We didn't earn that because we can't. We surely don't deserve it. We can all admit we have done wrong at some point and time in our lives. That wrong is called sin and the only price and punishment for sin is death which Jesus took care of. And Jesus took care of all of it. All of our past, present and future sins. He didn't forget anything or leave anything undone. So now what?? Now we have a choice between sin,death and the eternal grave or eternal life. If you now want to come to Jesus and a relationship with Him all you gotta do is proclaim that you honestly in the depth of your heart believe that Jesus is your personal Lord and Savior. That you honestly believe in the depth of your heart that Jesus saved you from sin, death and the eternal grave. Just say it out loud and if you can't speak out loud say it in sign language. So as you can see we are not accepted by GOD by anything we think, say or do. The basis of our acceptance with GOD is that Jesus loves us and died for us on the cross. That's it. Once you accept Jesus as Lord and Savior then GOD cancels all of your debt of sin and says your no longer guilty forever. Then once GOD cancels your debt then you become His child by adoption and GOD is your Father. With GOD you will have family, a friend, a counselor, hope, future and more. The choice now is yours to make and no one can make it for you. You can choose between eternal death or eternal life. What will you choose??

Depression and suicide

This is put in a Christian point of view as I am a Christian. Just thought you should know... Many Christians think that depression is a sin and it's not depression is an illness. King David a man after GOD's own heart had depression and you can see that clearly in most of his Psalms and there is no mention at all of GOD bein mad at him for it. I think if depression were a sin GOD would have told us that in the Bible and no where in the Bible does it say that depression is a sin but that doesn't mean GOD wants you to stay that way forever. I think though even Jesus might have been depressed while on the cross when He cried out "My GOD My GOD why have You forsaken Me!" I dunno for sure but I think maybe He might have been depressed at that moment. I myself have been depressed several times. Depression runs in my family so yes depression can be genetic. My autism as well makes me vulnerable to depression. There are many things that can cause depression such as genetics, disabilities such as autism or bi-polar so if you have a disability and aren't sure if it makes you vulnerable to depression or not please look it up and find out as you need to know, bitterness, a stressful or dead end job, stress, E.D, PMDD, PMS, menopause, postpartum depression, pregnancy, miscarriage,  inability to conceive a child, abortion, having a disabled child, finding out your disabled, finding out your adopted, finding out there's no Santa or Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy, worry, having a pessimistic attitude, surgery before and/or after, self-pity, sudden illness of you or a pet or family member or friend, getting old, certain medications so if you are taking any medications please check them to see if they can cause depression, being resentful, feeling like a failure, abandonment, not making amends, loneliness, rejection, disappointment, divorce, substance abuse, being in or have been in jail, conflict, living in or lived in a broken home, being or have been persecuted, anxiety, financial problems, a broken heart, the loss of a family member or pet or friend, nightmares, sudden catastrophe like losing your home or loss of a job, retirement, post-traumatic stress disorder, loss of someone you pastored or sponsored or counseled or doctored or nursed, relapse in recovery, unforgiveness, sins that you have not confessed and/or repented from, being or have been bullied, physical or emotional or sexual abuse, little or no self-esteem and other things like those. Now please be advised that you could have all those or just one or two but that doesn't mean you will get depression for sure they may cause it or maybe not.  Many people have different reactions when in depression. When I was in depression I went into myself and became very secluded. The things I once loved no longer held any interest to me whatsoever. I no longer cared how I looked and I didn't wanna eat anything. All I wanted to do was curl up in a ball on my bed and stay there. When I was depressed nothing and nobody mattered to me I simply didn't care at all. I felt like I was in a dark lonely place with no way out.  I felt like I was carrying a huge weight as if an anvil had been tied to me. Sometimes I cried and sometimes I didn't. I was also once suicidal now please don't panic I'm no longer suicidal as GOD got me out of that and I'm no longer in that place thanks to Him. Many people when in depression will want to commit suicide as just to feel something else or escape it. When you have been in depression for a long time you will start to yearn and crave happiness and joy but won't find it and you'll do anything to get happiness and joy and many people in depression will fall into the temptation to commit suicide as they think it will take em to where they can escape from it finally and maybe finally feel something different. The signs and symptoms of depression are sadness, loss of interest in things you loved before, thoughts of death or suicide, feelings of guilt, feelings of worthlessness, slowness of speech or thought or activity, trouble concentrating or making decisions, lack of energy, random and sudden changes in either weight loss or weight gain, sleep problems such as insomnia, sudden aches and pains, the feeling of carrying a huge weight, tearfulness, constant worry, dwelling on negative thoughts, relapse in recovery, irritability, anxiety, lack of appetite, retreating into one's own world, no caring for oneself and not doing things such as bathing or brushing your hair or things like those, wanting to always wear comfort clothes such as track pants and hoodies all the time to everywhere, dark circles under the eyes, wanting to wear dark colors all the time, lack of taking care of pets or family members, memory loss, thinking your always alone, loneliness, feeling trapped in depression, feelings of hopelessness, feeling lost, confusion, some do in depression actually get sick alot including maybe getting the cold or the flu alot this is because one's immune system lowers in depression, panic attacks, feeling very tired all the time, agitation, being suddenly aggressive, sudden bursts of anger, acting on dangerous impulses, self-pity, pessimism, stomach problems including nausea and indigestion and heartburn and things like that, headaches, migraines, sudden high or low blood pressure, tightness in the chest, problems breathing, dizziness and lightheadedness. Please be advised that even if you have one or two or even all these signs and symptoms you still may not have depression but if you think you do please consult your doctor immediately. If you are seeing signs and symptoms of depression in yourself please pray, talk to your sponsor/s, talk to your accountability partner/s, pastor/s and if you have a therapist/s please go and talk to them as well and be completely honest with them on how you are feeling do not hold back anything at all. If you can arrange it please get your sponsor/s, accountability partner/s, pastor/s and therapist/s and you all together for a meeting on your depression and talk it all out on things you can and get everyone to pray. I think when someone has depression I think its best to have all there sponsor/s, accountability partner/s, pastor/s and therapist/s all on the same page and all know whats going on and all following the same battle plan against the depression. Depression is not a joke and is not to be taken lightly. When someone is in depression there in real deep pain and the last thing they need is you shrugging it off and saying it doesn't matter or they'll get over it or telling them its a sin. Believe me those things will not help it'll only make things worse. Some people in depression might also need medication to help them out of depression and this is ok to. Some Christians say its wrong to take medication as they think that medication somehow takes GOD out of the picture. Medication doesn't do that at all. GOD can use anything He wants to help or heal a person and if He wants to use medication to heal then He can do that. Depression can come suddenly one day you wake up and your depressed. Depression can also come very slowly bit by bit over time. Usually when someone is in depression something or someone has caused it but not always as it is also genetic if it runs in your family you can get depression for no reason whatsoever. Depression affects 19 million people in the US every year. Those who have been in depression are very likely to experience it again. There is no cure for depression yes it can go away but chances are that someday it will come back. This is not always the case as some do get depression only once and then never again but the chances of that are slim especially if it's genetic. Now as I said before people in depression can experience thoughts of suicide and may try to end their own lives. 30,600 people commit suicide in the US each year. The signs that someone is suicidal are they say life isn't worth living, they say family and friends and pets would be better off without em, they may say things like "next time I'll take enough pills to get the job done right",  "you'll be sorry when I'm gone", "I won't be around much longer", "I can't deal with everything - life's to hard", "I won't be a burden much longer", "nobody understands me - nobody feels the way I do", "There is nothing I can do to make it better", "I'd be better off dead", "I feel like I have no way out", "Your better off without me." They might suddenly get all their affairs in order such as paying off all the bills and mortgage and making a will, suddenly giving away alot of things, signs of planning it such as obtaining a weapon or maybe writing it in a note, may talk alot about harming or killing oneself, may talk alot about death, may be obsessed with death, dramatic mood swings, sudden personality changes, sees no hope for the future, self-loathing or self-hatred, saying goodbye, self-destructive behavior and sudden sense of calm. That sudden sense of calm is usually the last sign to come before someone commits suicide as that usually means they made their decision. There are ways to prevent someone from taking this course of action and here are some of them. Pray for em like you have never prayed before and pray fervently and constantly for em, get em talking about whatever is bothering em, try to get em to journal it out, try to get em to pray about it, let them know you are concerned about them and that you care and that GOD loves them, here are some questions you should ask "when did you begin feeling like this?", "did something happen that made you start feeling this way?". "how can I best support you right now?", "have you thought about getting help?" When talking to someone who is suicidal please be yourself do not put on any act for them whatsoever, make sure you make it clear to them as much as you possibly can that you care for them and are concerned about them and that GOD loves them, listen, be sympathetic, don't judge em please, let them vent on you, let them know as much as you can that they are not alone, let them unload things on you the fact they show upset and anger is actually a good sign its when they show nothing that you need to be more concerned, be patient, be calm and do not react cause if you react chances are they will to and they might react into suicide, be accepting, ask their friends and family members if they know anything at all about this person being suicidal and ask them how long they think they've had these thoughts, look into family history to see if past family members were suicidal as history does tend to repeat itself and being suicidal is also genetic, offer as much hope as possible, be re-assuring, let them know that suicidal feelings are temporary and that it isn't forever, try not to argue with em, avoid saying things like "you have much to live for", "your suicide will hurt your family" and "look on the bright side." Those sentences even though true will tend to set em off. Don't try to fix them, don't give advice, do not justify their suicidal feelings and don't blame yourself if they do commit suicide. If you are experiencing thoughts of suicide here is the suicide hotline 1-800-448-3000 and here is also their website http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/AskIt/Pages/Suicide.aspx?gclid=CIWSute427ECFWIaQgodJkoAJg and please also if you are experiencing thoughts of suicide I encourage you please pray  and also contact your sponsor/s, accountability partner/s, pastor/s and therapist/s if you have them and please be 100 percent honest and blunt.

Alright if you feel lead to do so please pray the following prayers or ones like them. "Dear GOD if I ever know someone with depression or is suicidal please use me to help them out. Please comfort those in depression or are suicidal. Please give them hope and Your peace that surpasses all understanding. Please help them experience how much You love them. Please help me let them know that I to care and am concerned. Please help me to not blame myself for their depression or suicide. In Jesus name I pray amen." For those in depression "Dear GOD I am depressed. I feel like the world is ending. I feel alone and in darkness. I feel like there is no help for me. I cry alot. I feel like there is no hope for me. I feel like no one understands me or cares about me. I no longer have any interest in what once brought me joy. I'm in much pain. I feel like this will never end and that there is no way out. Oh please help me GOD. I need You. I need Your help. Please help me to talk to my sponsor/s and accountability partner/s, pastor/s and therapist/s. Please help me to be honest with them and to be blunt. Please help them help me. I need help. I feel lost. Please help me. In Jesus name I pray amen." For those experiencing thoughts of suicide "Dear GOD I wanna die. I wanna give up. I feel like there is no hope for me. I feel like everyone will be better off without me. I feel like no one can help me and no one understands. I wanna escape. I think about it alot. I feel like I have no way out. There is nothing I can do to make it better I feel so helpless. Please help me. I need You. I need Your help. Please help me to talk to my sponsor/s and accountability partner/s, pastor/s and therapist/s. Please help me to be honest with them and blunt. Please help them help me. I need help. Please help me. In Jesus name I pray amen." For those who ever were or are a sponsor or accountability partner or pastor or therapist to someone who committed suicide. "Dear GOD I lost em. I prayed. I did all the right things. But I lost em. I feel guilty and horrible about it. I feel like there was more I should have said or done. I go back in my mind to it to try to think of what I might have missed. Please help me to stop blaming myself. I feel what they did was my responsibility but it isn't. What they did was their choice not mine. Please help me to forgive myself and move on. Please help me to help others in future who are struggling with depression and/or suicide. In Jesus name I pray amen." If you are a sponsor or accountability partner or pastor or therapist chances are you will meet someone with depression and/or is suicidal so here's a prayer for you "Dear GOD whenever I meet someone with depression and/or is suicidal please help me help them.

Please help me to be understanding and accepting. Please give me the words to say. Please give me Your wisdom, understanding and discernment to help them. Please help me also to not blame myself for their depression and/or suicide. Help me to remember that suicide is their choice not mine. In Jesus name I pray amen." .....
