Will I go to Hell if I Commit Suicide?

Will I go to hell if I commit suicide?

A lot of people wonder, “Will I go to hell if I commit suicide?” This is an important topic, with strong opinions on either side of the issue.

Those who think people who kill themselves will go to hell, believe this because a person who kills themselves isn’t trusting God to get them through their difficulties and therefore may not really have faith in God.

Still, there are other people who are convinced that the jury is still out, as God is in the business of forgiving all who ask.

Both of these arguments seem to make sense, so which is it?  Part of the mystery is because most people who have experienced hell after a suicide attempt don’t like to talk about it. But one exception to this rule is Tamara Laroux, who when she was a teenager, tried to kill herself by shooting herself in the chest.

Did she go to hell?  Yes.

Did she stay there?  No.

God in fact rescued her from hell, but to find out the why or how, you’ll have to watch her explain what happened in the YouTube video below. Her story has a twist you won’t expect. However, Tamara’s story certainly sheds a lot of light on the question, “Will I go to hell if I commit suicide?

So what we’ve learned from Tamara is that hell is real, and sadly, people really do exist in torment there.  But it seems God has set up a way to escape hell, in the here and now,  that has more to do with God’s grace and forgiveness when it is sought through the sacrifice of Jesus.

If you are reading this article, because you’re considering killing yourself, here are a few rules about God you should know:

  1. God loves you and does not want you to kill yourself as he has a special plan for your life.
  2. The enemy (the devil) wants to tempt you with self-inflicted death so that you can’t fulfill God’s plan for your life.
  3. You can receive God’s grace and the forgiveness of sins (through the work of Jesus who died for your sins) if you only ask him.  Click  here  to learn more about this:
  4. God will also help you walk through, then eventually walk out of your pain, if you but trust him.
  5. Don’t allow yourself to become a sacrifice to Satan, especially if you are not sure where you stand with God.
  6. Choose life – Despite how it seems, God can really take your broken life, no matter how broken it is, and turn it into a miracle.
  7. Live and dare God to show you what he can do with your life.

This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. Deuteronomy 30:19, NIV

If you are hurting and  need to talk to someone, call a suicide hotline.

  1. I think we forget that people that commit suicide are probably mentally ill. Either severely depressed or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or may even be psychotic. Jesus came to save the lost and heal the sick. I don’t think we can judge what the condition of a person is when he commits suicide, or what their relationship was with the Lord prior to that moment. I lost my sister to suicide and God has given me peace that she is with him. She had given her life to the Lord as a child, but after deep Depression ended her life at 36. Only God knows the condition of a mans heart, and diseases of the mind are just as real as diseases of other parts of the body. Suicide is often the result of a very ill and depressed mind.

    • Lorre, I am so sorry you lost your sister and so glad that God has given you peace. And you’re right, it’s not our place to judge, and we will hope and pray that we find our loved ones with Jesus. Great comment.

    • i really don’t want to die. but i think it will be what i end up doing. i am severly bipolar and a alcoholic and a cocaine addict…severe addict. i was married to the most wonderful woman for 20+yrs…i was not a good man, i lost her because of my actions and i know it has always been my mental/addict personality and i did terrible things that deserve divorce. i spent more than half of my life with her and had/have no real frends except other junkies. i go to AA but it’s a lie, i am using right now.
      the only other person in my life is my beloved mother. i love her more than anything including life.
      she is post kidney op and doing well but i know mortal. i cannot bear to think of her dying. i know this is selfish too! i don’t use my illness’s to justify my thoughts of sucide…i am scared of hell and god does not seem to have plans for me to stop drugs and get better. i have been trying now for over two years praying, begging, pleading to God to help. i can not stop in fact i like coke, it is the only anti depressent that works even if for only a few hours. i also cannot bear to think of living on after my mom dies alone in this world with NOBODY who really loves me….also selfish? i almost dont care anymore…infact the only reason i dont do it right now is i don’t want my mom to cry.
      i am going to try rehab again this week. however it is widely known that 12 step programs do not work
      the person who stops in NA or AA would have stopped anyway it’s called natural remission and going to yoga might have been the same result the last place they try is where they stop so AA is happy to take credit when it actually makes me more ashamed i try and try and do everything they say but still can’t stop
      i hope i make it but in my mind i have already killed myself and will have to deal with whatever God decides to do with my broken soul
      i want to die

      • Patrick, I just read your post. You are exactly right. Your mother would cry if you commited suicide and died. It would break her heart. I have seen and know firsthand what it does and how it feels to the people you left behind. In 2010, my nephew died from suicide. He was my sister’s oldest child and oldest son. He had a 5 year old daughter. She lived with him and she was definietly a daddys girl. His death has been extremely hard on my sister, brother-in-law, and both of my nieces. It has been hard on my parents/his grandparents. My nephew and I were close. I miss him so much. He knew how to put a smile on your face and make you laugh, no matter how bad the situation seem to be. Our family use to be close. We all lived in the same community.

    • I have always wondered about suicide and depression and whether God would make an exception. As much research as I have done I have never came close to an answer, it is unknown. I believe we can make anything happen through the power of prayer. If I had a child who passed early due to suicide I would pray my entire life for God to spare my child. There would not be a day that went by that I wouldn’t beg and plead with God to forgive them so that we could reunite. I believe faithful prayer can do ANYTHING. I have been suicidal and I suffer from some sort of depression, I am an adult now so just now really tackling the depression not that I have identified it but I will tell you that when I was a teenager I contemplated suicide OFTEN. Looking back I just want to give myself a hug and say it’s okay because it was horrible remembering that place. I remember being around people all the time but the lonely feeling came from no one understanding the inside. I would try to reach out ALL THE TIME to people for help (in my own way as a teen) and the response was always a hurried uh huh well honey maybe you need to… Yada yada yada. A child or teen or anyone who is experiencing suicide needs an empathetic ear, it takes being that one person who understands and who can assure them that everything will be okay. Especially if there’s been a traumatic experience/s. Terrible things that happen are difficult for adults to handle much less a child. These are new emotions to someone who has never experienced to them and in a young person who is already vulnerable sometimes it really does feel like the end of the world. And in a situation where harmoniously feelings of loneliness, thoughts that no one cares, alcohol/drugs, and opportunity meet is where despair sets in and it is where suicide can happen fast.
      I like to believe that God will let us pray for our loved ones who may have gotten into trouble with this. I believe I had someone rooting for me back then to have made it this far now.

        Hi Anne, you have some good insights and you are right, there are some mysteries here. But if anyone is tempted to take their life, instead, choose life. It’s like Anne says, it gets better.

  2. ThinkingAboutSuicide.com says:

    Patrick, I want you to know we are praying for you. That sense in you that you don’t want to die is there for a reason–God can indeed help you and your life can be changed. It may seem impossible now, but I truly believe that.

    You can read stories of people who felt as desperate as you do, at. http://teenchallengeusa.com/testimonials/ What started out as an addiction recovery program for teens now helps people of all ages. Perhaps at a place like that you could find people who understand why it is so hard for you to let go of cocaine and help you get out of the trap it has caught you in.

    You are right that it would probably devastate your mother if you took your life. But there are probably others in your life who would also feel a great loss if you were gone. We have a lot of articles here on our site about how awful it is for those who are left behind, when someone takes their own life. Many of the writers for our site have suffered that pain.

    Please stay alive until you get the help you need. We will continue to pray for you.

  3. I have good grades, family and friends. I sort of have a double life at school I’m happy and at home I just shut myself away from everyone. I don’t know why I am depressed but I am and I have gone to psychologist and a psychiatrist and have tried medications that haven’t worked. I am tired of my life of getting picked on by one of my brothers ever since I was little. I no longer have the will to live but I continue living just so my parents have one child to be proud of but that thought isn’t enough anymore. I want to kill myself but I’m scared of the thought of going to hell. That’s the only thing stopping me, but if my life continues like this I don’t think I will be able to see myself graduate. I just needed someone to tell this to because you can’t tell certain things to psychologist you have thoughts and plans for suicide without them sending you to a hospital for 72 hours because your a danger to yourself.

    • ThinkingAboutSuicide.com says:

      For “Teen” and other teens out there who feel the same way: Please don’t worry so much about how you want your parents to be proud of you (that sounds like a lot of pressure)–think more about how they love you and I’m sure would be devastated if you were gone, as would your friends at school and siblings too.

      We believe God can help you, loves you, and has a future for you (see GodTest.com ) and He can help you get through this. Please don’t cut your life short, as there is hope. There can be physical causes of depression, so a doctor may help you–even in a hospital, if you can be honest about your feelings and symptoms. Fight for your own life, you are worth it!

      Some medications can make symptoms worse for teens, others can help. Our team here will be lifting you up in prayer. You might read some of the other stories on this blog, including about teens who considered suicide and are glad they didn’t go through with it, and stories from family members who lost loved ones to suicide.

      We believe God put you on earth here for a purpose–please stay alive and allow Him to reveal that to you!

  4. Thinking About Suicide says:

    Dear ‘Teen’,
    I’m so sorry to hear that you are going through such a rough time. May I say that there is an evil one who would love for you to die — why? Satan is always after the ones who have promise to help others and to make a difference. I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt you are one of these people. And now that you know that too, you can fight back by praying prayers like:

    I am a child of God – I have been redeemed to hope and life by the power of the blood of Christ – Christ – who gives me his righteousness and forgives me of all my sins.
    Now, because I am in Christ – I have the power to say:
    I cancel the spirit of depression, grief, trauma, death and suicide off of me in the power and authority of both the name and the blood of Jesus.
    I declare through the power of love of Jesus that I will live and not die.

    Thank you Jesus for setting me free from the power of depression and death.,
    In Jesus Name,

    Next, check out an article I wrote about HOPE – located at: http://thinkingaboutsuicide.com/i-need-hope-now/

    Print out this article and read the encouraging Scriptures and pray the prayer out loud. I believe you will start to feel better – but do check back in and let us know.
    We love you and we are praying for you!

    Here’s a hug … ((((((((TEEN!)))))))))


  5. Does the Bible clearly state anywhere that a person will go to hell if they kill themselves?

    • Okay, so I posted a comment on here days ago and it is still “awaiting moderation.” Was it offensive??? I think it’s dangerous to form a theological position solely on personal experience. How do we know for sure that these people actually went to hell? Shouldn’t we depend more on what the Scripture says?

      • Thinking About Suicide says:

        Great to hear from you ‘Curious’!
        While the Bible does not clearly say that a person will go to hell if they commit suicide – let’s consider the following verse:

        “Do not be a fool–why die before your time?” Ecclesiastes 7:17b

        Also, don’t forget one of God’s ten commandments states: Deuteronomy 5:17 – “You shall not murder.” (NIV)

        And suicide is murder. It’s the murder of yourself, and it’s the murder of faith – faith that God would have brought you through. It’s also the murder of all the things God had planned for you to do, and all the people you would have helped and influenced with the power of your testimony when God got you through what you are currently experiencing in this dark moment of your life.

        And don’t forget Ephesians 9:4 which state: “Anyone who is among the living has hope –even a live dog is better off than a dead lion!”

        So, to sum it up – according to the word, at the very least, suicide is foolish, and it’s also murder. Besides that, it’s saying you refuse to trust that God can turn your situation into good. (He can! But you’re going to have to live through this black moment in order to find out what he can do.)

        So, will you go to hell if you kill yourself? Honestly, I’m not sure, because heaven awaits people who trust in God. Can suicide be an act of trusting in God? I would hesitate to say yes.

        So, instead of debating this issue, let’s take it to the Lord in prayer.

        Lord, I chose to live because I do not want to sin against you by killing myself, killing my hope and future. For your word says:
        Jeremiah 29:11-13 ESV “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”

        Even though it’s painful, I’m deciding to trust you, to put my hope in you. Please forgive me for doubting you would see me through. Forgive all my sins as I give you my whole life – and live for you– through your power.
        I choose to live so, for one thing, I can observe how you are going to turn my life around in this next year.
        Thank you Lord.
        In Jesus name — Amen

      • That girl who claimed to go to hell when she shot herself is full of complete ***! She just said that so she would get popular! She freaking lied! If God truly had a plan for me, I wouldn’t be locked away in my room, avoiding my family in solitude, and stopped caring about school! God isn’t real, when I die, I’m just gonna rot in the ground where I’ll be forgotten after a few days, and that’s the truth

        • Thinking About Suicide says:

          Hi Andrew, sorry to hear that you are up in your room feeling so isolated, but that is not proof that there isn’t an eternal hell. I think it’s more of a proof that there’s also a hell on earth that many of us go through. (Me included.) I’m sorry to hear that you are going through that now. But I can assure you that it won’t last forever. Things will get better. God is for you and he loves you. You probably don’t believe me right now, but give him a chance. As for me, I reached out to God in my pain, and then step by step, I was able to walk out of it. It didn’t happen over night, but it did happen.

  6. Seriously?
    People who commit suicide only do this because they are mentally scarred to such a great extent that they cannot live with the pain any more. And while suicide is never the answer, it is not a sin to have been so badly treated in life that you feel you cannot go on any longer.
    Admittedly my view is biased being Agnostic, but if God is supposedly merciful why would He give all those who have already suffered so greatly eternal damnation in Hell? It isn’t because of Satan tempting people who do take their own lives, it’s because life itself is cruel.
    People need to think. Yes, you can have your own beliefs, but sometimes something isn’t completely true and moral just because your religion says it is.

    • Thinking About Suicide says:

      Hi Ella,
      Of course it’s not a sin to be mistreated and God does not punish us for being mistreated. But if a person has never trusted God or commits suicide because they refuse to trust God, then suicide could be what some would call a trap from the enemy. (A trap of death, an actual sacrifice of one’s life to the enemy (satan). I am not saying that this person necessarily goes to hell, but I’m saying they were cut off from ever fulfilling the purposes God had for their life.)
      Hear me out on this…
      God sent his son Jesus to break the trap and to defeat the lie that one has to die by their own hand in order to escape their pain. Jesus died in our place. We can call out to him, we can ask for his help and comfort, we can walk through our pain with him, learning to trust in his great love for us as we do.
      That’s the difference. Trusing in God to get you through your pain, or trusing in the lie of suicide to escape your pain.
      Trusting in God is a process that must be lived through, one day, one step at a time.
      It may not always be easy, but with God’s help, it is possible.
      I’ve talked to so many people, myself included, who decided to trust God – instead of killing themselves.
      In my case, I choose to live, I choose to trust God in what seemed like an impossible situation.

      Guess what! God got me through. The overwhelming pain I was immersed in at the time is now a distant memory. I now have joy and peace, and I have God’s grace and presence in my life. It’s such a beautiful thing.
      My prayer is that if anyone is thinking of buying into the enemy’s (Satan’s) lie, that they should escape their pain and die at their own hand, that they will hear this truth:
      God loves you, he sees you, he wants to comfort you and help you walk through this difficult time, one step at a time.
      You can pray this prayer:
      It’s me. You know what I’m going through. You know how unfair and hurtful it is. Lord I offer you my pain as a gift to you, not that you want me to suffer more, but that you want to carry the weight of my pain for me. — across the shoulders of your dear son Jesus, who not only died on the cross for my sins, but died for my pain and suffering. Because Jesus defeated sin and death on the cross, and rose from the dead. I choose life. I choose to live my life – by trusting you Lord, one day, one step at a time. I know that I may have some difficult days ahead, but I also know that ou will get me through – by your love, grace and mercy. Yes, your love. I choose to believe that you love me God, and that you will carry me, like the good Shepherd carries a lost lamb, in your arms, close to your heart. Give me the faith to believe that you love me. Teach me how to accept your great love for me. Show me that you see me as pure, precious, beloved and beautiful.
      Thank you so much for your love and care. Thank you that I found this message and prayer — use it to bring me closer to you. Trusting in your love for me, accepting your son’s great sacrifice for me. Lord, I choose you, your life, your son’s saving grace through his death and resurrection. I choose you and I choose to trust you through this emotional storm. I give you my life, here on earth, not as a sacrifice of death, but as a sacrifice to walk through this difficulty with and through your power.
      In Jesus’s name

      P.S. How to get to heaven: Trust in Jesus as your personal savior, meaning recognize that he died on the cross for your sins and rose from the dead, defeating sin and death. Give your very life to God as a LIVING sacrifice to him.
      God bless you!!

  7. Can someone pray for me, husband of 30 years divorced me for a younger woman and left me nothing no alimoney lost my house and my job. living on my sis couch crying dont know what to do. Lost my health Ins and cant take my anti depressant meds cant afford them. Going to lose my car soon, then I won’t even go to work if I find one. I am so depressed and I want to throw up my hands and give up and end it all. Please help me pray

  8. I am 35 and I am not on drugs,nor mental,but I am just tired of my life,no matter how I try I stay down….I have no family,no friends…The only reasons I have not done it is because of my kids…but I am sitting here now debating on it….my kids are better off without me…but,I do believe in God,but I do wonder if he loves me soooo much why he’d make my life so bad!!!?

    • Thinking About Suicide says:

      Hi Nichole, I’m so sorry to hear about your pain. Just know that I and others who read your post are praying for you. Also know that yes, your kids do need you. Please continue the battle, not just for your life, but for the lives of your kids. Suicide of a parent is a painful gift you do not want your kids to live with. At some point in their lives, they may also feel pressured to give up on their lives too, because that’s what their mom did.

      I believe there is hope for you, and that you can walk through and out of your depression. Here are a couple of scriptures I’d like to ask you to memorize — as scripture that goes into your heart can help you win the battle:

      Ecclesiastes 9:4 – Anyone who is among the living has hope.

      Psalm 27:14 – Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

      Psalm 34:18, 19 – The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (19) A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.

      You are loved!

  9. I have been suffering with depression all my life. I never believed in myself and I saw myself as a loser. I didn’t go after opportunities because I was scared.Things were finally starting to change in 2013. I had a more positive outlook,went to church bible studys,prayed a lot more, was in the choir,And declared that 2014 would be my turn around year. That all came to an end when a doctor gave me the wrong medicine,which messed up my health.I was a young healthy,singing young woman. Now,I can no longer sing because I have an ulcer on my vocal cord because of the medicine. My bones are weak, I’m always in pain. And this happend RIGHT when opportunities were coming my way that I looked for for a very long time. I keep thinking it is a punishment for not appreciating life and my loved ones early on. I deserve this I am a fool who held herself back. I didn’t know what I had until it was gone. He gave me so many chances and I blew it. I don’t want to live anymore.I really don’t. My gifts are gone. I never thought I’d be limited physically. Especially when I finally found happiness.

    • Thinking About Suicide says:

      Dear SJ,
      Oh my! I’m so sorry to hear about this terrible thing that happened to you. No, my friend, you did not deserve this and God is not punishing you for bad thoughts or for not appreciating the things he’s given you.
      However, you can still find happiness, even in difficult circumstances and pain. First, I am asking every caring person who reads this post to say a little prayer for you, me included. Secondly, I’d like to ask you to try a little experiement.
      Think about one thing you have to be thankful for; even if the only thing you can think of is: I’m thankful someone cares enough to pray for me. Thank you God.
      Next, I want to challenge you to start an actual list of things you have to be grateful for…
      Try to add to it daily. In fact, make it your daily goal to add at least one or two things to your list.
      This will become like a treasure hunt, and soon you will see that yes, there are blessings in your life.
      Also, find a church that has a prayer ministry, and repeatedly ask for prayer — for healing — for opportunities — for blessings and also for grace, mercy and favor.
      In fact, I’m praying these things over you right now, and I’m asking others to do the same.
      Now, you have reason to watch for the miracles and blessings that God has for you. Some of these miracles and blessings may already be there, waiting for you to notice.
      You are going to be okay. Please don’t give up.

    • I’m so sorry sj. So sorry. I understand. Every time something good comes into my life, no matter how small, it gets taken from me. Good things n people never stay long in my life. I m more cursed then blessed I believe. I don’t have the will to pray anymore. I know Satan is slobbering n waiting for my soul for many years cuz all the bad nightmares of going to hell, n death. What to do anymore. Where to go. Mental illness hurts all aspects of life n the sad part is people get angry, hateful, ignorant against it cuz they don’t understand n it hurts even more. Good luck sj. Hope to c u in a better place after this sadful life. Chris

      • Thinking About Suicide says:

        Hi Chris,
        I prayed for you in another post, but I wanted to send you that powerful prayer here too…
        Dear Lord,
        I come to you on behalf of Chris. The enemy (the devil) has been lying to him about who he is and who he belongs to. I come against all these vile lies and I break them in the power and authority of the name and blood of Jesus. Lord, I ask that you shine that light of your truth over Chris and set him free. Show him that he belongs to YOU. You LOVE him. You have a future and a hope in store for him.
        Set him free Lord.
        In Jesus name,

  10. Had a Bad Breakup says:

    I dont really know how this whole chatting with people work on this site since this is the first I’ve visited here, but im here because I’ve strongly considered suicide as my answer. I’ve sat through the video and read the article and I still am planning on it.
    I’ve had real bad break ups and I cant seem to feel better about this recent relationship consisting of 4 years. I want to trust God to lead me in the right direction but I keep straying from the path. Im making poor choices and given up on my well being. The girl I love lives close to me so its very difficult for me to pass by her house without having a pain in my chest. One day I’d feel better and about the whole thing and go about my day, and the other I’d feel terrible and worthless.

    • Thinking About Suicide says:

      Dear HABB,
      You are experiencing grief, and grief is something you just have to go through, to get to the other side. You are still in the ‘going-through’ phrase, but this phase will not last forever. I’m so happy to hear that there are days you feel better, because this is a sign that even more ‘better’ days are coming. Believe it or not, there will even come a day when you may be involved with a new love, and these feelings regarding the loss of your former love will fade into a distant memory. But you must give yourself time. And while you are giving yourself this time, please reach out to God for comfort. He is there for you and wants you to turn to him. Jesus came to give us rest, and the best way to receive his rest, is to let go of these burdens we are carrying and ask him to carry them for us.
      Try praying:
      Dear Lord,
      I’ve been carrying so much pain in my heart. I want to hand this pain over to you, if only for this moment, and rest in your great love for me. I ask that you heal my broken heart and show me that you love me and that you still have a wonderful plan for my life. I choose to trust you with my life — through your son Jesus. In Jesus’s name.

      When you can pray this, you will turn toward a new journey, a journey of peace. A journey of beginning to understand that not only does God love you, but if you trust him, he will restore your life. You have much hope my friend. Please do not give up.
      Praying for you.

    • Thinking About Suicide says:

      Dear An
      I just got an email from a woman who wanted to die when she was young because she was abused. She couldn’t understand why God had allowed it. But years later, looking back on her life, she knows that the abuse was not God’s plan for her, and that he was with her. Her broken heart is now healed and she is so glad that she is alived today.
      I shared this story with you because, though I don’t know what you are going through, I and a lot of people really do care, as does God. Please keep pressing into him. He loves you and will help you walk through this difficult time. Things will get better. Praying for you!!

  12. Dear Linda
    I am a regret person, everything I do and think in negative. Been wanting to die for long time but the thing is my after life. Why go there now than later. Yes hell, horrible though. The way I’m living. I’ve done so many things in life that I really regret. Wish I could have been smarter. Young and stupid. I’m caught in sin lifestyle. This sexual shit I can’t get out of. Got caught in my very young age. Did stuff I really regret. I can never forgive my self. If I start appologe I will hurt so many people and my life and my family’s life will go dark and ruin so many. Sometime I think I deserve this torment for who I am. That how much I hate my self. And when I read stuff like yours, I get regret for thinking of ending my life. I’m not honest to family, why she still with me? Cause she doesn’t know me. She doesn’t deserve this, my kids. Ah I hurt them so much. Who am I to do this to this people in this world. I’m so going to hell. Awfull thought every day, what a way to live. Just thinking of my after life. Waste of life. The I want to become better person, the worst i get. Everything comes to me when I don’t want it, this dam temptation. I’m to weak. When I give in, I got big regrets and a loser I am. Just went to get out of this sinfull world. And disappear. No heaven or hell. Hate my self for the thoughts I have. Forgive me lord for thinking this awfull thoughts and sinfull life. Sorry I’m a total failure, dam what am I say

      Noah, I’m sad to hear your story, but I want you to know that you are not without hope. If you cast your sins at the foot of the cross of Jesus, and turn from them, he will forgive you. If you are hurting others, you need to turn to God and his power to ask you to help you break your behavior patterns. It is not to late for you. But you do have a choice to make. Choose God. Choose life. Choose peace. Choose forgiveness of sins. Choose to turn from your sins. Choose to rely on God’s power to help you do so. Choose to give God your whole life.
      Perhaps you could start with a simple prayer like:

      God, I am a sinner. I live a double life. I hurt others. Yet, your son died on the cross even for these sins of mine. Jesus not only died for my sins, because he was your sinless son, he defeated both sin and death through the cross and his resurrection from the dead. Please give me the same power you gave Jesus to defeat sin and death, to give me the power to turn from my sins and to embrase your forgiveness. I give my life to you, God. I ask that Jesus become the Lord of my life. Make me a new man filled with your Holy Spirit. Then guide me in learning how to live my new life.
      In Jesus Name Amen.

      Praying for you!

      • Thank you Linda for your prayer I am also fighting the thought of suicide. Josiah

          You are very welcome my friend. I am praying for you. I’ve been where you are – 25 years ago, and I’m so glad I didn’t give in to my thoughts. I believe you have hope and a future.

  13. Hi I’m not really sure how to share on here, but my name is nikki and I’m 22, and earlier this month I turned 5 months pregnant, however my water broke too soon and I delivered my baby boy on April 10th. He didn’t make it. And now its only been a couple weeks since I lost my baby boy, but now my fiance has been fired from his job. We have no food no money and I’m running out of options. All I want is to see my baby again, but I’m scared if I kill myself ill never see him again. I’ve been praying so much to god and I don’t know what to do.

    • Thinking About Suicide says:

      Hi Nikki, Oh! I’m so sorry to hear that you are going through such a difficulty. Losing a baby is so hard, then with the loss of your finacee’s job too.
      Please don’t give up on your life. If you turn to God, he will help you walk out of this difficulty and pain, one day, one step at a time.
      One day, you’ll be able to turn around and look back at your life, and you will see this time, as a time of great difficulty. But you will see that you got through it! Your finacee will get another job. You will have another baby. Things will turn around.
      For now, why not reach out to a local church for help. They may have some counseling or even a food patry or emergency funds.
      Saying a prayer for you today! Love Linda

    I’m a christian and just wana see myself home really,I am tired of this life really.I contemplated suicide but I’m too scared I will end up in hell.Was doing business but made so terrible decisions which left me in debts.it was my fault really,don’t wana blame the devil or anyone.I was left with $15000 debt.I was taken to court and if I don’t pay I will be jailed.I’m not trying to raise any funds here,just that I am stuck.I can’t stand jail honestly but can’t go to hell either,but I want out of here.I had prayed,sown break through seeds but nothing is moving!Just wana go home really!I’m tired!can’t face another day!

    • Thinking About Suicide says:

      You are right. Jail is better than hell. We’ve heard from people who were suicidal because they too were facing jail. One man wrote us to tell us he decided to live and go to jail. Now his time is served and he has a wonderful new life. He says he is soooo glad he didn’t commit suicide. Everyone makes mistakes, but suicide is a mistake that you can’t correct. Please choose to live. We are all praying for you.

      • I am in my 50’sand have been suffering with severe depression and now ocd and bipolar . I have lyme disease as well which puts in constant pain usually migraines. I am on several meds most with too many side effects to stay on. There are so many times when I feel that I am ready and it does not frighten me at all. I just don’t want to feel pain anymore and I know there is something better on the other side. The question is will it still be if I don’t wait to go naturally

        • Thinking About Suicide says:

          Hi Amy,
          My heart goes out to you.

          Let me encourage you to live because I believe that as long as you live there is hope. I hope that you keep trusting God, because that is what he wants. I am praying today for more love and healing in your life.
          I hope you live.
          I too suffered terribly from migraines and discovered it was not allergies, but food sensitivities. Also certain smells like dryer softener sheets would also triggered it.
          God healed my migraines and I am praying that he heals yours and helps you understand your triggers. I pray that he will heal all of your diseases.
          If you have access to a healing room in your area, you should go. See:
          Or if you know of a church or friends who will pray for you, please go and receive prayer.
          God has a purpose for you. He’s wants you to live so you can discover your purpose.
          Maybe one of the first things you should do is discover if you even have a relationship with God. People without a relationship with God do not go to heaven.
          And consider that a relationship with God is centered around trusting God.
          So to get started in learning how to trust God, go to: http://www.GodTest.com to take our test.

          Please don’t let the enemy win. I am praying against the spirit of suicide – that it would be silenced over you. I am praying for hope and health and God’s purpose over you.
          Please live.
