The word suicide is not there but the word murder is.



But I have some verses for you against suicide.



19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple* of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body. 1Corthnthians 6:19



11 For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. 12Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. Jeremiah 29 :11



If you don't mind me asking is this for your own personal information or someone else?





Also I want to say that if you have Faith in God, that God is a God of Love and he will protect you. You must pray and praise him everyday even in the worst trails of your life.

I believe if a person commits suicide that it does not automatically send them to hell. My biblical support is Samson. He pulled the pillars of the temple down in him and killed him and all that were inside yet we find him in the new testament as a hero of the faith. I believe there only one sin that sends people to hell and the is the sin of the omission Jesus Christ. If a person has never been saved, then whether it is suicide or homicide, they will still go to hell bc they never trusted Jesus as their Savior.

I also think that if you are saved.



if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9





Then if you believed why would you then take the life that God has given you. Life is a gift from God.

Let us pray…



Lord Jesus Christ we ask that you help everyone who is suicidal.



Guide them so they may receive the help that they need.



Protect them.



Prevent them from dying by suicide.



We need them. We love them.



Let them feel our love, and your love, Lord Jesus.



Lord, we ask that you comfort the suicide survivors.



Remind them that they are very special people.



Remind them that they are heroes.



Fill their minds with beautiful memories of their suicide angels.



Provide them with everything that they need Lord.



Ease their pain.



Give them hope.



Give them comfort.



Give them guidance.



Help them heal.



And help them in every way possible.



Let them feel our love, and your love, Lord Jesus.



And let their suicide angels carry them on their wings when they are weary.



Lord, we pray for the suicide angels.



They are with you now, Lord, in Paradise.



These angels are among the highest angels in Heaven.



Their wings are magnificent and their beauty is beyond imagination.



Their love shines bright.



Embrace them, Lord Jesus, with your love.



And let their love continue to shine down upon us.



Amen.



An Angel:angel:

The Gospel of John records Jesus as saying that "the thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I have come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have it more ABUNDANTLY" (John 10:10). In other words, the "thief" (and Jesus was calling Satan by that name) is responsible for the death and suffering of this world. It is God's desire that we all enjoy a spiritually and emotionally fulfilling life.
