Heavenly Father,
I am going through my own valley of weeping. Like everyone’s, my life has included many times of struggle and tears.
Tragic losses affect me profoundly.
Your Word acknowledges that sorrow and grief are part of human life, and faith in you does not keep me from going through difficult times.
Rather, my faith enables me to walk through those times and grow stronger along the way.
I take the heart in the knowledge that sorrow does not have the last word.
I have great hope in your promise to redeem my losses in heaven. In your promise of eternal life, I’ll find the hope and comfort to carry me through life’s valley.
Amen.

- a prayer in sorrow.

she cries in the corner where nobody sees
she’s the girl with the story
No one would believe
she prays every night
“Dear God won’t you please
Could you send someone here
Who will love me?”

Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done
Or what I will become
Who will love me for me
‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
What love really means

Her office is shrinking a little each day
She’s the woman whose lover has run away
She’ll go to the gym after working today
Maybe if she was thinner
Then he would’ve stayed
And she says…
Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done
Or what I will become
Who will love me for me
‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
What love really means
What love really means

He’s waiting to die as he sits all alone
He’s a man in a room who regrets what he’s done
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
“Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go back”

I will love you for you
Not for what you have done
Or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew
Love you for you
Not for what you have done
Or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew

1. you worth so much more than what you’re going through
2.its permanent
3.things change and you need to be alive to see it
4.emotions are temporary
5.you’re good enough
6. this too shall pass
7. problems don’t last forever
8. you’re here for a reason
9. you are strong enough for this and…
10.its gets better.
10. reasons suicide shouldn’t be an option.
