Monday 10th September is World Suicide Prevention Day.
This is a day set aside across the world for all of us to pause and think about what more we can do to help the work for Suicide prevention in our communities. With the recent statistics showing a 11% increase in suicides in Ireland in 2011 this is a very important day for us to note and to reflect. Every effort we make either big or small is needed. We need to encourage people to reach out and seek help so that they get support when faced with challenges in life. Samaritans: 1850 60 90 90  Aware: 1890303302 
Lord, help me to take one day at a time not modelled by the past or scared of the future. Shelter me from the anxieties of the unknown and help me to put aside all fearful thoughts and imaginations. In times of need, enlighten me to see that help is near and give me the strength to reach out and let someone know. Let there always be someone there to help me. Lord of my today and tomorrows, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen to me that you and I together can't handle.  Amen.
