Midnight Prayer

God, I pray that your spirit will saturate those who are tired, suicidal, depressed and at the end of their rope. Father, in this watch hour, dismantle every attack that is being put into motion, silence every demonic voice, remove the nightmares, don’t allow the gun to fire, the pills or poison to work. Instead God, rescue your children.

While I’m praying, break the shackles, destroy the chains and open prison doors of their mind that they may be free. While we’re praying, dispatch your angels. They may not take away the pain but they can strengthen and hold up the ones going through. And if the person reading this, is going through a dark period, give nighttime vision to see until it’s over. Comfort, tonight, those in mourning. Give hope, peace and understanding where there is none.

God, I need you to do it now, for your people. Place a song on their lips instead of sorrow. Let them rest, tonight, in you, knowing that someone is praying their faith doesn’t fail and that they survive.

Amen.

  1. Thank you so much for this! I am a three time suicide attempt survivor. Last night was hard for me as I felt extremely heavy and sad. The pain was so intense, I felt it physically. I prayed and asked God to allow me to sleep. I knew I would be okay after rest. While I am just reading this prayer today, I felt it last night. Thank you.

    1. You’re so welcome and I pray that in this 9th month, 9 meaning finality, that last night was your last night of feeling that way. May God’s peace encompass you, like a blanket on a cold day and that you never feel alone again. Know that you are enough and you shall survive!
