Lord, I come before You with a heavy heart for my friend.
He/She is struggling so much right now with the things happening in his/her life.
I know You can be his/her greatest comfort.
I know You can step in and make a difference.
Show me how I can best help him/her.
Give me the words and actions that will keep him/her from taking that ultimate step of suicide, Lord.
Let him/her see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that suicide is not the route to take.
Lord, let Your presence be felt in his/her life and let your comfort be what he/she needs.  Amen.
