Someone’s alone, with no one at all,
Not even a friend or family, to call.
They fight each day to stay alive,
In hopes that someone will help them to thrive.
If only one person would come their way.
And give them some hope in uncertain days.
The sad part is we can’t even see,
Because many of us don’t even look past, “Me”.
So today I want to encourage both you and first “Me”.
To listen and act on this important plea.
Someone’s alone with no one at all,
Holy Spirit please guide us to answer the call.

Relevance For Today Ministry
Globally there are around 800,000 people die from suicide every year. That’s one person every 40 seconds. (copied from “Our World in Data” website)
Such a heartbreaking number. As followers of Jesus Christ, I want to challenge you today to pray for the Holy Spirit to keep you alert for those who are lonely and lost. Pray for eyes to see through the smiles and fakeness of those who are truly on the brink of taking their own lives. And lastly, pray for wisdom to say the right things to these people who believe in their minds that there is no way out. Thanks and Blessings and Love to You ALL.
