If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. (1 John 5:16)
If you notice that a Christian brother or sister is in sin then pray for their repentance. Perhaps they indeed repent and come again to live for the Lord God. However not every time this is recommended because there are sins which lead to death. For instance, if you hear of a Christian committing suicide and dying, your prayers for his or her repentance won’t work since that person is sinned unto death. Do not despair if you hear of such sins such as suicide, selling soul’s to the Devil or even receiving the mark of the Beast. Rather give thanks to the Lord God that you are saved in Jesus Christ and that there are others in Christ who are still resisting sin!
“Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the night watches! Pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord! Lift your hands to him for the lives of your children, who faint for hunger at the head of every street.” (Lamentations 2:19)
The righteous considers the cause of the poor: but the wicked regards not such knowledge. (Proverbs 29:7)
Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy. (Proverbs 31:8-9)

Pray about the suicides in Canada’s Attawapiskat First Nation. This place has seen an abnormal spike in suicide rates. The news headlines (with part of the articles mentioned) confirm this:
First Nations community grappling with suicide crisis: ‘We’re crying out for help’
“Since autumn there have been more than 100 suicide attempts in Attawapiskat, which has a population of just 2,000. The community’s four health workers struggled to keep up, their efforts beset by a lack of training in mental health issues. The youngest person to attempt suicide was 11 years old, the oldest 71. After 11 people tried to take their own lives on Saturday evening, exhausted leaders declared a state of emergency. On Monday, as officials scrambled to send crisis counsellors to the community, 20 people – including a nine-year-old – were taken to hospital after they were overheard making a suicide pact. “We’re crying out for help,” said Attawapiskat chief Bruce Shisheesh. “Just about every night there is a suicide attempt.””
Five more suicide attempts made in Attawapiska
“Canada’s 1.4 million aboriginals have higher levels of poverty and a lower life expectancy than other Canadians. Health Minister Jane Philpott has said the suicide rates among aboriginal youth were at least 10 times higher than for the general population of young people.”

“A former prime minister who dealt with similar issues during his tenure said Tuesday there are no quick fixes. “It’s an extremely difficult problem,” Jean Chretien said. “I was with this problem in 1968, a long time ago. It takes time and patience, and there’s always tragedies of that nature that occur and the government has to do its best to cure it. But it’s not easy.””
After 11 Suicide Attempts In Just One Day, Canadian Community Declares State of Emergency
Just before I could give you a suggested prayer for this serious situation, I would suggest that you actually concentrate on praying. Stop listening to the hate mongers who are playing the race card to benefit from this situation. You should rather have mercy on those families who lost their loves to suicide. There is a real need for the Canadian government to take actions that actually benefit Attawapiskat First Nation and its people, this part you don’t need to ignore. Also don’t bother which ethnic group are these people, just regard them as human as you are and pray for them and their salvation. If you are Canadian, please let your local church preacher know about this and get the people of your church to pray and help this First Nation that is in trouble in whatever way that you can.
I ask in the name of Jesus Christ the Son of Man who offers salvation to all who call on his name on knowing of the Gospel, that peace and life about in Attawapiskat First Nation of Canada. Give them life and life in abundance. I place before you all their sufferings, all their depression and all their misfortunes. Give those who are thinking of suicide the grace to not act wrongly but rather reveal their mind to those who can really care enough to help them. Keep those people safe from greedy corporations and industries. Cause the leaders of Canada to give heed to the cries of the First Nation until their is no more suicide over there. I pray that all those other nations who wish to help the people of Attawapiskat may do so with the right intention, right wisdom and right timing. I also ask that health workers increase and prevail against all the suicide over there. Let your Gospel bring light and life to those in mental agony in Attawapiskat. Send forth your Spirit O Lord God and renew the face of Attawapiskat having mercy upon its inhabitants. Let your grace grow over them all. Amen.
Here’s an update on the weird experience I’ve been facing recently:
Firstly, I would like thank the Lord Jesus Christ for being a source of inspiration in the midst of the recent challenges I’ve been facing.
Secondly, I also thank all your readers who prayed for me these days. I know it might have not been possible to drop in a comment or so but I sure know there were lots of people praying for me. A special thanks to Sue and Wally for being among the first responders.
Thirdly, there are improvements that I’d like to share. My health has improved, the need for excess sleep (over 10 hours of sleep) has totally vanished. I feel much lighter now. The internet connection has been more consistent now. I managed to get my back up phone running for me to handle this blog. And the affected phone, well is getting repaired. Its battery and mother board connection had become faulty. Pray it works again. Please also pray for the end of the weird experience.
This experience, which is still not done, has taught me a few things:
1) I started writing stuff in a way that’s considered old fashioned. I mean I actually write in a book before posting online. Didn’t realize that using a pen and paper is simple and yet effective when technology takes a downturn.
2) Also, I’ve been working on my poetry more. So watch out for a good set of poems in the future.
3) I’ve started to pray even more. Especially for those who are yet unsaved. Besides this I pray for those who pray for me. At times, praying for those who pray for you can be a great way to bless them back.
4) I’ve realized that the Devil is a weakling and a liar. When you have faith in the Lord God and Holy Word, just resist the Evil One and he will flee you. It really works!
