Save-the-Date: Join Us for a National Day of Prayer, Sept. 8 – 10, 2017, September 10, is World Suicide Prevention Day. This weekend, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention invites faith communities across the nation to pray for those whose lives have been touched by suicide. Pray that we can all grow in faith that brings hope, and hope that brings life.

Whether in your church, your temple or synagogue, your mosque, or even by yourself, join us.

As we pray, let’s also pledge to be aware of those around us who are struggling with any of life’s challenges–especially those affected in any way by suicide—and to be there for them in their times of need. Be there in person, be there with care, be there with prayer.

On this Faith-Hope-Life Day, we pray for emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. Just as we regularly pray for persons with physical concerns, such as cancer or heart disease, we especially pray this day for those dealing with mental health concerns and feelings of hopelessness, and for the people who love and care for them.
It’s time to break the silence around suicide and help all who struggle. Please join us.
Because, where there is faith there is hope, and where there is hope there is life.
So Faith-Hope-Life Day, let’s be there—in person, with care, with prayer.
