Dear Friends,

Everywhere in the world, the number of people who commit suicide everyday is going up. I am Indian and I live in Ahmedabad of Gujarat. I have noticed that everyday in my city alone minimum five people commit suicide. The number is on the rise. Therefore, I am forced to start writing for such people in order to help them in some way. My humble request to you is to share my letter with your friends and followers. We may not know but this might save someone's life.

As it is, people commit suicide for several reasons. But whatever may be the reasons, what forces people to commit suicide is the fact that they find their problems insufferable, and they find themselves in a situation where they think that life has no solution to offer for their problems. they do not know anything about the reality of death except that it puts an end to this life, they think that with the end of this life, all the problems of their life will end. They simply do not know that death is part of the problem, not of the solution. So, they commit suicide.

They do not know that the problems that death throws up are infinitely worse than the problems of this life. Not only that, the problems of death are not temporary but permanent, and they certainly do not have any solution. The problems of life DO have solution. Therefore, my humble request to the people having suicidal thoughts is to pay heed to my advice.

My advice to them is simply this:

It may be that your problems are really big. It may be that your rational mind has practical basis for thinking that there remains no way out of the fix you have landed into. You may have tried out all options at your disposal but without success. Please try out the solution that I am offering you NOW.

Do not think that you are all alone in your struggle against your problems. Jesus says, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” (John 14:18) But He will not come to you against your will. If you believe in Him and seek His help, then you WILL surely receive His help. And He is bigger than your problems and can solve them in a way that will literally surprise you.

Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) In another place, He tells His disciples, “Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in My name. Until now you have not asked for anything in My name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” (John 16:20-24)

You might have tried out too many things, but you have not done one thing. You have not asked anything from God in the name of Jesus. Yes, pray to God in the name of Jesus. That is the only way your prayer reaches God. And your prayer will be granted only if it reaches God. The point is, without Jesus, no prayer is answered. 

Therefore, Jesus said, “…whoever does not gather with me scatters.” (Matthew 12:30) If you want to live and want all that makes it worth living, you need to gather them with Jesus. He has said:“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in Me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples.” (John 15:5-8)

What Jesus can give you nobody else can. He has said: “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.” (John 14:27)

Peace, joy and satisfaction – these are the things which define life. All these are yours for the asking. Jesus says if you will ask, you will receive.

Dear friends, God of the Bible says,

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!” (Isaiah 49:15)

This is the extent of His love toward you. Put your trust in Him. You will not be disappointed. If you need my help in knowing how to seek His help, do not hesitate in approaching me. You have my contact numbers and email ID. I believe I can help you. Also you can do this little prayer if you want it that way:

O God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Lord of Israel,
From everlasting to everlasting You are God.
You have made the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. You have made me and You sustain me. You knew me even before I was born and Your eyes are watching me now. You know what situation I am going through in my life right now. (Tell your problem to God here.) believe You are not happy to see me in this state. I also believe that only You can help me now – nobody else can – not even I. I have tried to help myself but have failed and now I have reached the end of all the resources I can use to solve my problem. My life has become a burden for me, so heavy that I no longer can carry it on my shoulder. (Tell God what you want Him to do for you.)

God, please help me and alter my circumstances for good so that I can live. Please glorify Yourself in my life through Your much needed intervention. You can make possible what is impossible for man. Nothing is impossible for You. If You like, You can make my life not only bearable but enjoyable. I want to live. And I want a happy life. Please grant my request. To You I give all the glory and honor. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. Amen.
