PRAYER TO ST. RAPHAEL TO INTERCEDE FOR THOSE CONTEMPLATING SUICIDE
Holy Archangel Raphael, appointed by God to guide, protect and heal, I entrust to you all people who at this moment are contemplating suicide.
You guided young Tobias on his journey and protected him from the spirit of death which sought to destroy his life. I ask you to protect all people from the road which leads to physical and spiritual death, especially those in most danger of despair and suicide.
Just as you led Tobias by the hand, lead them away from the sadness of addiction, to peace and joy. O Holy Raphael, whose name means, "God has healed," bring them the Lord's healing.
Lord God, hear the prayer I make together with your faithful servant Raphael.
