BECAUSE LIFE HAPPENS

Combatting Veteran Suicide

From the Bibles.net Team:
Dear Heavenly Father, we pray for our friend who lands on this page that you would give them hope. You alone know the burdens they carry, the things they have seen, and their distressing thoughts. We know that you alone make wars to cease (Psalm 46:9-10), and we intercede for them asking that your Word would make peace once and for all in their mind and heart. Give them the humility to seek you in their weakness and need. Show them that you are strong, loving, and able to deliver them from despair, nightmares, fear, and anxiety. Show them the new life you offer them in Jesus Christ, and the sword you hand them for the battleyour Word (Ephesians 6:17). Wash our friend’s mind of all that is evil and replace their disturbing thoughts with vision of you. In Jesus name we pray, amen.

Some wars aren’t over

But they can be. There is someone who understands it all. He doesn’t want you bailing out; he wants to make you whole.

Theme Verse
Psalm 103:2-5 ESV

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

It's Always Been You

Verse
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NIV

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Dear Veteran, Here's How to Heal

by Charles Spurgeon

We may further say that the most sorrowful and the most sinful are welcome to the Lord Jesus.

The most sorrowful may come; I mean those in depair, those who are at their wits’ ends, those poor souls who, through superabundant difficulty are ready to do the most unreasonable things—ready, it may even be, to give way to that wicked, Satanic temptation of rushing from this present life into a world unknown by their own hand.

Go, sorrowful one, go now to Jesus, whose tender heart will feel for you … first and foremost, in a flood of tears, reveal your case to the great invisible helper. Kneel down and tell him all that racks your spirit and fills your tortured mind and plead the promise.

Spurgeon, MTP, vol. 13, 157 (“A Troubled Prayer”).

Verse
A Prayer for Strength

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT
