“It’s Me Again God”

May it be a light to you in dark places, even when all other lights go out.

cross-light

Yesterday, a friend of mine informed me about a family member who has a history of addiction and depression, who recently tried to commit suicide.  I felt so badly for this person whom I shall call Jane Doe.  I am aware of the fact that depression can be caused by biological chemical imbalances or other health issues.  However, it is my belief that this is also a spiritual matter, in which the devil and/or his minions inspire hopelessness and despair.  I have been praying for this person since yesterday quite steadily.

I happened to find a prayer called, “It’s Me Again God,” written by Helen Steiner Rice and set forth upon a card by the Rev. Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., who advocated steadily for family prayer.  I shall set forth this prayer again for all of us:

Remember me, God?
I come every day
Just to talk with you, Lord,
And to learn how to pray . . .
You reach out Your hand,
I need never explain
For YOU understand. . .
I come to You frightened
And burdened with care
So lonely and lost
And so filled with despair,
And suddenly, Lord,
I’m no longer afraid,
My burden is lighter
And the dark shadows fade . . .
Oh, God, what a comfort
To know that You care
And to know when I seek You
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THERE!

Whitney Houston dead

Remember the TV commercial from some years back showing an egg frying in a pan, with the message: “This is your brain on drugs”?
Pop singer Whitney Houston clearly ignored the message. Instead, she was determined on her self-destruct path of addiction to cocaine and alcohol.
Reportedly, she recently tried to reverse course. But from the looks of these pics of her stumbling out of a Grammy party just 2 nights ago, she had slid back into the abyss.

This pic shows what appears to be blood trickling down her leg:

Her path of self-destruction came to a predictable end yesterday.
The AP reports, Feb. 11, 2012, that Beverly Hills police Lt. Mark Rosen said Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. in her room on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hilton. A Los Angeles County coroner’s official said the course of death is yet unknown but “There were no obvious signs of any criminal intent.”
Houston, a truly gifted singer, was only 48 years old. She leaves behind a daughter, who will be 19 in March.
