Nothing is as heartbreaking as a loved one who has lost hope and is contemplating suicide. A person who seems cheerful one day can slip into despair and hopelessness the next. God's heart is tender and full of compassion toward those experiencing deep pain. The minibook Suicide Prevention covers the steps to identifying and preventing suicide using a Christian approach. Suicide prevention requires compassion toward the sufferer, along with practical steps and biblical assurance of God's love.
The Bible says, "The Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion" (Isaiah 30:18). He feels the emotional, spiritual, and physical agony that engulfs the lives of those teetering on the brink of absolute hopelessness and suicide. And from God's tender heart springs forth words of wisdom, life-transforming truths that truly affirm your value to him.
You will learn how to better reflect God's heart to help those who are hurting, and you will gain practical insight on what to say and what to do. This minibook is filled with practical advice and Biblical wisdom to guide you as you reach out to a suicidal friend.
