How to destroy Suicidal thoughts and resist suicide.....Be Free from it!

War Against Suicide!

Welcome to the Fireinthebone Suicide Prevention Initiative page.
Life is precious to God, to the society and the individual families and every effort to prevent suicide is well within my 'Calling' as a servants of God.  To observe the rising cases of youths committing suicide all over the world without lending our voice, hands and effort is to turn away from reality.
Suicide and non-fatal suicidal behaviour are major public health problems across the world. Data from the WHO indicate that approximately one million people worldwide die by suicide each year. This corresponds to one death by suicide every 40 seconds. The number of lives lost each year through suicide exceeds the number of deaths due to homicide and war combined. Suicide attempts and suicidal ideation are far more common; for example, the number of suicide attempts is up to 20 times the number of deaths by suicide. IASP
Suicide is the third-leading cause of death for 15-to 24-year-olds in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), after accidents and homicide. It is the number 1 leading cause of death in Britain for the same age category.

Suicide is an act in desperation, motivated by fear, hopelessness and unbelief. God is not happy with any one taking life of either self or another person.

I know that suicide is preventable. Many people agree that sharing a problem with someone who cares, a care-giver or counselor brings relief to a hurting person.  
There is nothing complex about suicide. It usually starts with the victim hearing a voice telling him/her to harm himself or take his life. The voice comes back when the person is in pain or dissatisfied and if not countered, the voice gradually becomes more frequent and authoritative forcing the victim to progress from thoughts to planning.
If there is yet no countering of the voice, the victim is persuaded into attempting suicide and finally dying by suicide. With proper counselling,  suicidal thoughts and plan can be neutralized by positive engagement and persuasion. As counselors, we hope to present people with good reasons why they should choose life.  
Again, the problem is more spiritual rather than physical. The voice of the enemy that tells people to kill themselves is not from God.  It is the devil that frightens people and deceive them to think nobody wants to listen to their burden and help them. The voice that says people are not fit to live is the voice of Satan. 
Young people are deceived that their suffering will never end, and that death is the answer to their rejection, loneliness and failures.  This is not true, so the lies of Satan should be countered.
I am passionate about suicide prevention because it is a strategy from the devil to steal, kill and destroy souls of men.  Suicidal thought could be countered and dispensed from the mind of a victim immediately it comes. Many atimes when believers are sick, the devil will come to you and say 'you may die in this sickness, at other times the same spirit will tell you a particular sickness will never heal.  But if you can rebuke the devil, reject his evil words and bind him and his word against you. Guess what will happen, the sickness will heal and you start using your body to the glory of God.
As a servant of God, the devil attack us always.  sometimes, after conducting deliverance and casting demons from people, the enemy can organize a counter attack against the Pastor and his children, but once you understand what is happening, you speak words of authority over the devil and destroy his counter attacks on you.
As a servant of God, every help should be extended to people, especially those depressed by the conditions of life to help them stay alive.  Any one who have live up to 30 years know that conditions of life are temporal, so also is the thought of suicide.  After rain, there will be sunshine and though there may be tears in the evening, joy will come in the morning.
Disappointments are normal in life, pain and lack are also normal to all the living.  We have a duty to educate the younger ones that life brings changing times and seasons to us and we have to bear them and move on.  This is why 90% of people who survive a suicide attempt do not go on to die by suicide. That number is very revealing.  Once a person survives a suicide attempt, no matter how strongly they had wanted to die, most of them choose to live thereafter.
Finally on passion, as long as a person is alive, things can always change for the better. Situations change. Even if their external situation is slow in changing, they will eventually change and the individual person could receive a 'boost' in their finances, education or training that will make their life worth living. God will always make a way for people that believe in Him and with time, the person is able to discover better options and opportunities that will enhance their lives.
We have a three-prone strategies to combat this deadly societal problem.  
1. Training We will conduct training for teenagers and youths (Our main target) on how to discern the feeling and what words and actions to take to counter the thought. Appropriate and timely training of the youths on words to speak back to the devil and actions to take will go along way.  
2. Telephone/Email Support - We have telephone contact for direct contact counseling, prayer and advise. Telephone:  234-0924835716. 
Email: fireintheboneng@gmail.com or cagorson@yahoo.com.  
3. Prayer Support:  Every contact is prayed for, after the counseling and advise on what to do.  Prayer will be made to cast out the evil influence from the contact from our office in Nigeria. Remember that in the things of the spirit, distance is not a barrier.
Once a victim is willing to talk to us directly or write to us in confidence, we hope to engage them with the appropriate techniques and dissuade them from executing their plans.  The fear, anxiety and burden as well as feeling of hopelessness will be history after our intervention.
We will endeavour to publish latest international research findings on the topic to drive the prevention awareness wider and educate as many people as possible on best practice suicide prevention techniques. 
Thank you for visiting. Please consider sponsoring one of our counter suicidal training for youths in 2019.
