All the time that Peter was under heavy guard in the jailhouse, the church prayed for him most strenuously” –Acts 12 :5 (MSG)
After multiple deployments into the dark jailhouse of the mid-East, the heavy guard of war has our soldiers bound. Unable to help themselves,on a myriad of meds, suicide looks like a good option to them. How cruel to return home and die by your own hand. Jesus, You are the only Light that can set them free and give them hope.
Stats: One active duty soldier commits suicide for every day of a year (360 deaths). Last year, 6,000 vets took their own lives.
