You may be crying out to God. Maybe you’re not sure if there is a God. But you need help anyway.
You’ve done the best thing by finding us here. Read on.
First of all – if it’s an emergency, please ring 999 (if you’re in the UK). Or if it’s appropriate, please call a first line responder, including the Samaritans on 116 123 at any time, or visit www.samaritans.org. If you are a child, still call 999 in an emergency, but Childline are there all day and night on 0800 1111 or www.childline.org.uk for other concerns.
But perhaps we can help?
You might be reaching out for God and don’t know where to start, or need guidance. Here’s a suggestion for a prayer you might want to pray:
“God, if you are there, help me. I am reaching out to you because I don’t know what else to do. Thank you that you hear me and care about all of my needs. Please be with me right now and let me know your presence, your comforting arm around me. Please show me what I should do next. Thank you that you love me, whether or not I love or even know you. Please guide my feet, and be with me as I try to work out what to do. Amen.”
If you’d like to speak with someone about Christianity or spirituality more generally, please contact us on email@example.com, and we’ll get back to you in person as soon as possible.
