A reader who has struggled with depression and despair for many years writes:
Will you ask your readers to pray for me? Maybe God will hear one of them even though he is deaf to my voice. This despair is soul-crushing and my hopelessness is about to swallow me whole. I don’t have much hope that God still cares for me, but sticking my neck out is about all I can do. Without hope, I am dead.
Father, hear our prayer that this person be delivered from this suffering and given the light of peace, hope, joy and love in Christ Jesus. Mother Mary, pray for this reader and their family.
If you can do it, gentle readers, please offer your fasts/sacrifices for her.
