Prayer for Work Colleague

Community Member
At the beginning of this week I was told that someone I worked with briefly recently took their own life. I don't know the reason, though I suspect work circumstances contributed. I would like to pray for their soul.

hello P12,

sorry to hear about your work colleague. We may never know the reason, except their life. As Grandy said, if you feel the need to chat to someone either here or professionally. May I join you in prayer?

Hello P12, it doesn't matter how long you have known someone, it's really sad to hear of this news in any circumstance.

My utmost condolences because this can make you ask questions which you can't answer and may never know, except to understand that it's such an unfortunate time, I am very sorry and please remember if you feel as though you are needing the help from us or your doctor then we'd love to hear back from you again.

My best.

Hi P12,

I'm sorry for the loss of your work colleague.

We never really do know the reason, only the person who was in pain knows this.

It's a very sad time and we always left wondering why?

Let it be a reminder that we never really know what someone is going through so lets always be kind.

I think its lovely to pray for your work colleague. May your work colleague rest his soul in peace.

We are always here to support you P12.
