BY DONNA ROGERS THF THBONnn F As the preacher in the pulpit urges the congregation to worship God, he Wurts out "I feel a spirit of suicide in here." Then at prayer time, unknown people contemplat ing suicide are prayed for. This scene is repeated over several Sundays. Suicide is not a topic talked about much in places of worship nor had it been specified as an area for prayer needs as much as it is now. ?

In teaching of this, Jesus presses the need to be a positive influence on others. Jesus uses the word "woe" to point out the sorrow that awaits those who tripped up His disciples. He emphatical ly stated that it would be better for the offender to die prematurely ratner tnan to live long enough to lure and entrap believers in wrongdoing (Luke 17:2).
