PraiseUmentary - Rescue - Lauren Daigle

"I was going to go cross country and then kill myself." - John


John: I left my home state on Friday. I decided that I don’t think that the trouble of life is worth going through anymore.  

Lauren Daigle: There’s never been a moment you were forgotten. You are not hopeless. 

John: I just don’t think it’s worth it. 

Lauren Daigle: But you have been broken, your innocence stolen. I hear you whisper underneath your breath.  

John: I decided I was going to go cross country and then kill myself. 

Lauren Daigle: I hear your SOS. 

John: I feel like this is the way it’s supposed to be.  

Dawson McAllister: What is it in your life that would be so horrible that would make death more acceptable to you than life?  

Lauren Daigle: I will send out an army, to find you in the middle of the darkest night, it’s true, I will rescue you 

Dawson McAllister: I know you’ve been hurt, and I know you're depressed. But surely, you’re not so hurt and so depressed that you are going to do that to your parents. Now, you called me for a reason. You didn’t just call me to brag about the fact that you’re going to kill yourself.  

Dawson McAllister: Nearly 800,000 people die due to suicide every year, which is 1 person every 40 seconds. If you are suicidal or know someone who is, contact TheHopeLine at
