Suicidal thoughts overcome through prayer

First published online in The Herald of Christian Science, Indonesian Edition.

This passage from the Bible has meant a lot to me and still speaks to my heart: “Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come” (Acts 26:22). I’ve experienced in my own life that even in the most difficult situation we can get help from God and feel God’s presence as our strength and safety. 

I attended Christian Science Sunday School throughout my childhood. Now that I am married, my wife and I continue to study Christian Science. Although we live far away from church, we faithfully attend the service every Sunday. This regular attendance has strengthened my understanding of Truth and Life as taught in Christian Science. And this understanding has enabled me to turn to God in prayer with confidence to overcome problems that may come my way.
