Words for Our Days

I went into this book with the mind set of learning how I could help others. I’m a medical
professional working with people with special needs and or psychiatric envolvrnent. What I left with was more than I expected.
Annette cleared the way for me to be able to see how I can take spiritual control over areas in my own life that I really didn’t realize were problematic. Her compassion, humor and knowledge wove their way through the pages encouraging the reader that all was not lost.

I came away with the desire to take a more aggressive approach in my own spiritual walk as well as an understanding of how better to serve my patients.

I encourage you to read this, Believer or non-Believer. It will be time well spent.

Wonderful material. A must read Book!!!!

The author dealt with the topic on Suicide from the point of an outstanding experiential knowledge. She closely guided the reader, student, counsellor and care givers into the depths of the "Secrets" that seemingly proffer as justification for Suicide. What a wonderful exploration with great zest and spiritual courage.
I recommend this book for everyone wishing to liberate themselves from "The Lies" told by the distracting voice of Suicide. Great material needed for our times.

Inspirational! Filled with wisdom and practical tools for those who struggle with depression, as well as those who love them

Suicide, especially among our young people, is on the rise. Depression often makes us feel hopeless and helpless. This book is a gem for anyone who is struggling with their own hopelessness in the face of depression, or longing to give hope to someone who is. This book is over-flowing with wisdom and insight. I love the stop sign on the front cover, with the words, "STOP THE LIES!" We are fed lies on a daily basis by satan, the father of lies. Open this book to read the Truth of the power of the Holy Spirit living within you, the power of the blood of Jesus to heal your wounds, and the power of your human spirit, connected to the Holy Spirit, to discern what will build you up and what will tear you down. The reader will find encouragement, inspiration, and practical tools to find victory through depression, as well as to minister to those who are depressed. A powerful, life-changing read.

Life poured into me

Spiritual Secrets spoke tenderly to deep, obscured places within me. Some of the stories perfectly reflected my own experiences. It was as if life was being poured into me as I read and meditated on each chapter. Not a theoretical book, but practical, accessible, with easily implemented strategies for overcoming in every person's battle with suicide. I'll be purchasing more to give away.

Jesus could have easily hidden the fact that He was tempted

Many books on suicide talk about the emotional and psychological reasons or physiological factors a person is under causing them to contemplate suicide. Depression, shame, failure, bullying, hopelessness, chemical imbalances or other medical issues. Annette Eckert’s book, Spiritual Secrets of Suicide, introduces a much more profound yet overlooked reason. A spiritual war waged by satan. As the title implies it’s something we don’t talk about. And that can be for one of two reasons: we dismiss the devil and the spirit realm as myth and/or we never make ourselves vulnerable by revealing our thoughts and turmoil. “Jesus could have easily hidden the fact that He was tempted, but He taught us there is no shame in being tempted.” 
Most of us shy away from exposing our inner self, yet Jesus showed us to be open and share our temptations with one another. Don’t keep secrets. Tell it like it is. The best way to combat the spirit of suicide is by exposing your feelings and the thoughts in your mind to a loved one, trusted friend or counselor. Ask for help and prayer and pray in the Name of Jesus. His plan is for your Future

Stopping the stigma!

It’s been divinely written for a time such as now. Annette is able to break down the spiritual connection to suicide and equip the reader with the revelation of Jesus as well as other spiritual truths to help them overcome. There is a missing component to our mental health system and this is the key in fully integrating the spirit, soul and body in the care of a person, especially when they are facing depression, anxiety and suicide. Christian or not, you need to read this book.

Recommended read – thought provoking

I love the non-denominational Christian approach Annette has taken in this book. It is recommended reading for any Christian. I really connected to the stories she told. Christian or not, there are thought provoking answers for those who are not happy with their lives, even to the point of contemplating suicide. I will be re-reading this book in the very near future.

Newfound hope for those suffering with depression and suicidal ideation.

This book offers incredible hope to those who suffer from depression and suicidal ideation, as well as to the people who counsel them. When therapy and medication isn’t enough, and it often isn’t, this book can provide hope and promise to those suffering.

Turning the tide on suicide.

As a high school teacher I am excited about the change this book could make. So many students (and people of all ages) are suffering from suicidal thoughts, depression and anxiety. I truly believe this book will help teens and others to choose life. They will learn that they can successfully conquer this and stop the lies. I recommend this book to teachers, parents, school counsellors and anyone dealing with suicidal thoughts. The author shares an honest account of stories from real lives and how they have been changed. I believe that this book will turn the tide on worldwide suicide rates and will bring hope to those suffering from this modern-day epidemic.

Life Changing Truth Be Told!

I went to a book signing on November 30th here on Long Island where Annette's presentation was astounding. I purchased the book and DVD and embarked on my journey to uncover the secrets on Friday.

Annette speaks precisely to the darkness of depression and suicide in a delicate, loving way while the power of the truth permeates throughout the pages. The wisdom imparted will spark hope and peace through the stories of Annette and those who were so bold as to share such intimate experiences. I gained insight and tools to do battle and help others in their battle with the forces that would have us weakened to the point of thinking suicide looks like a good plan. The truth is plain - we need more than what we thought. I'm excited that THIS book reveals the TRUTH about how to overcome the lies through Jesus, Who overcame the world.

There's no shame, no embarrassment, no condemnation; only the pure love of God for the people He created - to LIVE with purpose and hope.

Needless to say this book is a giver. There's power to change lives here. As far as I'm concerned, it's the perfect gift so as I'm planning the gifts I'll be giving for Christmas and other occasions. Spiritual Secrets About Suicide will be a #1 gift again & again!

Spiritual Information and Practical Advice

The author tackles this epidemic that no one dares to discuss, and she has a lot to say about it based on her experiences as a spiritual counselor and her understanding of scripture. The book opens at the funeral of a young man in the community, the event that prompted the writing of the book. As she takes us through her personal history of tragedy, struggle, and loss the author offers spiritual information and practical advice to those caught up in depression and despair. Somber in tone but uplifting in nature, it’s a great book to share with a friend in trouble. Wish I’d had this book when I was in college.

Prayers at End of Each Chapter are Powerful

Purchased two copies and a DVD at a book signing: A copy for me, a copy for a family member who survived a recent suicide attempt, and the DVD for folks I know who counsel. I see a difference in my life since I read the book and started praying the prayers at the end of each chapter.

There is a balloon cloud of suicide floating over our Nation. In the US, more people die of suicide than in car accidents. The rate for US veterans more than doubles the amount of civilian suicides. What I love about this book is it takes aim at that balloon and delivers a direct hit, but you’ve got to put the arrow in your bow and practice your aim.

I suffer from depression, anxiety and chronic pain from a neck injury. Thoughts of suicide as a way to end the pain are always there. I waive off when someone throws another empty solution at me. I can tell anyone in the same shoes, this book is now on my night table and its contents daily practiced. The pull the thoughts of suicide had over me is deflating. The power in these pages is not natural, but supernatural. It's like God is backing it saying , "Yes, Yes, Yes! "

I want to encourage readers to not just read it once but to put into practice the guidance Annette shares.

Lighter & Lighter

"I'd like to see my ankles again. Her legs were swollen with arthritis, she was about 48, I'll call her Joan. The pain was overwhelming, she was on the heaviest dose of drugs possible. She was angry with her parents, but thank God, as my prayer team encouraged her, Joan chose to forgive them.

I sat on the floor before Joan, she had her feet in my lap, her eyes closed. I could feel the weight of her feet lessen. "How do you feel" "Heavy, but light." Two ladies from the church who had taken our afternoon workshop were serving on healing team with me. I could tell Joan's feet were no longer resting in my lap, but my prayer partners couldn't see that from their vantage point. Her feet kept floating up, even the ladies could see them rising now and their eyes were bulging out of their heads. I smiled, nodding at them. Joan's legs floated up until she was sticking them straight out, parallel to the floor. I was happily astonished, watching the Holy Spirit's power made visible. The other ladies were gaping.

Finally, Joan opened her eyes. "Oh! I can't do that!" She had no clue her legs were floating in the air. After a while she said, "I'm tired." She put her feet down. "I can see my ankles!" She was able to stand without limitation and talk to people in the church, a totally new experience. Praise Jesus!

NO STRINGS ATTACHED

Back Before the school holidays we had Annette and Ed Eckart from Bridge for Peace New York, here in Sydney. They held several meetings and I was able to go to a couple. I invited my close friend who is ill to go along to one of these meetings with me to get prayer for her healing. Unfortunately it was impossible for her to go so I said I would go in her place and stand in for her. When Annette got up and spoke she said that God had really made it clear to her that everyone there was to ask for something for themselves when they came for prayer. We were told to seek the Holy Spirit for Him to reveal what it was we were to ask for.
Then chairs were put around the edges of the room for people to go to receive prayer. Ed, Annett’s husband, placed a seat just a meter or so from me so when they invited people to receive prayer I quickly went to Ed and sat down with him. I was there to ask for healing for my friend, which I did and Ed and I prayed for her healing. We prayed in words and then in tongues and it was wonderful to have us both united for my friend like this before God. “The prayer of the righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16b). I know both Ed and I are righteous in Gods’ sight because that is what God’s Word says.
Then Ed said “What is it Dianne, you want to ask God for just for yourself. I couldn’t avoid it. I said I didn’t have a clue. The he said to ask the Holy Spirit. So I did and straight away these words came out of my mouth and honestly it was a though I wasn’t saying them. I said “I want to know my worth”. Then I started to cry. I was really taken aback. I have given countless talks on God’s love and how much He loves us and here I was asking “What is my worth” Am I really worthy of God’s love?” I could hardly believe what was happening. I have been on this Christian walk for quite a number of years now and here I was back at step one!
Ed’s face lost all expression. In fact he seemed totally blank. I was weeping and his face was stoic. We both started praying in tongues. Then I looked at him and this beautiful gentle man of God looked me in the eyes, shrugged his shoulders and said “I have no words” That’s all!!!! “I have no words. I remember thinking “Oh, that’s all you can say? At least he’s honest and not saying something just because he feels he should I thought to myself “I’m not worth much to God I’m not worthy of God’s love” And then as I began to leave Ed urgently grabbed my arm, again looked me straight in the eyes and said “You know what I mean don’t you? There are just no words to describe your worth to God”, He was emotional as he said this. Tears were starting to form in his eyes. I tried to let this sink in. He was saying that the extent of my worth was beyond words. I thanked him and left, feeling a bit flat and puzzled by it all. I had heard this all before. I had probably even said the same thing in a talk sometime. I had sat down for prayer believing in my self-worth and left knowing one thing, I didn’t believe in my self-worth.
It wasn’t until about three days after the healing meeting when it happened. I was just busy handing the wash on the line, not really thinking about any of this, when I was given a revelation. Instantly I knew how much I was loved. Instantly I was aware of my self-worth. I remember I looked up at the blue sky and wanted to sing. I felt so ‘light’. I already knew this stuff but this was a revelation in my spirit. It was like a sheet being lifted form my eyes and a heavy lad lifted from my back. I wasn’t even aware a load was there until it lifted. I physically felt the release and then came the feeling of lightness and sheer joy.
I knew, because I knew, because I knew, I was so loved…I was safe and secure in that love and it would continue for eternity. I was amazed and still am that God knew what was going on inside of me even when I didn’t. He knew where I needed healing. I would never have thought to ask for a revelation of my worth. I thought I knew all this stuff….But….No!!!
It took a revelation for me to truly KNOW IT….God is Good! God is Faithful!
It doesn’t matter what I do or don’t do, God loves me. It is unconditional love. As Annette said, His love is excessive. That excessive love is timeless and undiminishing. Nothing I do or don’t do will Him love me less. It’s all or nothing with God’s love. He doesn’t hand it out in varying amounts depending on your performance. It doesn’t even diminish if we don’t love Him back. It’s unconditional. No strings attached!`

Back Before the school holidays we had Annette and Ed Eckart from Bridge for Peace New York, here in Sydney. They held several meetings and I was able to go to a couple. I invited my close friend who is ill to go along to one of these meetings with me to get prayer for her healing. Unfortunately it was impossible for her to go so I said I would go in her place and stand in for her. When Annette got up and spoke she said that God had really made it clear to her that everyone there was to ask for something for themselves when they came for prayer. We were told to seek the Holy Spirit for Him to reveal what it was we were to ask for. Then chairs were put around the edges of the room for people to go to receive prayer.

Right on Course

A Bridge for Peace missionary prayed for a woman with arthritis in her neck. The woman telephoned later and she said, "I hadn't been able to turn my head when backing the car out of the garage. After she prayed for me, I went home from church and backed the car into the garage. My neck is free!"

MIRACULOUS SURGERY

Miss Jane  was presented to our surgery team in Zambia at 5pm, just two days before we would return to the USA. The swollen thyroid (goiter) in her neck was so large that her breathing was compromised and her arm was swollen from the abnormal blood flow. Her condition was so poor that we were concerned that she would not survive the operation to remove the thyroid. Yet, since there was no one else in the area that could perform the operation and she would probably die in a short period, we gave her  the options. She decided  she would rather die in surgery than go on any longer with this problem.  After prayer in her native language with a local Pastor, we completed the difficult surgery. Miraculously, all went well and the patient went home several days later praising God. Family members who had never seen her without the goiter were amazed and came to thank us.  They felt it was like a dream looking at her.  The power and love of God healed her through the hands of doctors and nurses of B4P RaphaEl Medical Missions. All glory to God and His Son Jesus Christ.

I HAVE EXPERIENCED THAT JOY AGAIN…

God’s light shined through 51 years-old Meg—that was obvious the first moment I saw her. Also obvious was the malformation on the back of her neck at the collar area and the raised shoulder that appeared related to it. She had a disc problem. As to the lump, Meg wrote to me later and said, “I was told by a physio (physical therapist) it would only get worse…” Bruce, Meg’s husband of 30 years, and her friend prayed over her in the Bridge for Peace workshop. My heart was lifted up as I saw Meg’s malformation reduce and her shoulders come into better alignment. Her friend’s face radiated joy, eyes popping with excitement. Her friend hugged me, “Thank you, thank you for coming!” She squeezed me for emphasis! (Our thanks go to Jesus and to you, His friends who sent us!)

In Meg’s words, “Jesus healed my neck pain and I can now turn my head fully to the left and right, which has not been possible since I woke up one morning with what turned out to be two prolapsed discs, one of which was pressing on a nerve. This injury happened in 2002. My body had other pains that are now gone as well.”

The workshop was in the afternoon, but we had a service in the church that night. “You minister with me tonight, Meg.” I said. She hesitated saying she felt she had a lot of emotional things to deal with and while she would like to pray for people, and used to pray for people, she didn’t feel she could now. I replied, “You stand with me and we’ll pray together. It will be fine.” Meg’s love for God and compassion for people shone as she served that night in the power of the Holy Spirit. She wrote later, “Because of the things I learned about myself in therapy, I lost hope and I felt disqualified from ministry… Ministry for me was always fun, I don’t mean that in a trite way, doing things with God, serving Him was joyous beyond anything I have ever experienced in life. I have experienced that joy again now, thank you Lord.”

Some transformations can be seen, others take place in the heart. Meg wrote, “I believe Jesus also did inner healing too, because the restfulness I experienced after payer was wonderful…this is when He brought me hope.”

Meg and Bruce are studying Bridge for Peace Foundation for Healing and watching the DVD together. “We are looking forward to working our way through the book and learning and growing in God, thank you so much for making this resource available.” Thank You, Jesus for all You have done for us!

HEALED WITHOUT SURGERY

Dear. Dr. Scott, In May 2011, when you brought a team of doctors to Zambia, at Kitwe Central Hospital, I was scheduled for surgery with one of the doctors. I had goiter on my neck.  When I entered the operating area, I found you and I explained to you why I was there. You told me that the ENT doctor did not come with you that year. I was very disappointed because I wanted the goiter to go.  But then you said something which I have lived to remember to today. You said "well an ENT doctor is not here but I know another Doctor who can remove this goiter from your neck, it is Jesus Christ. Do you want me to pray for you?"  I said 'yes' so you prayed for me and encouraged me to trust and believe that He has healed me.  You also gave me a book written by Andrew Wommack. As I write this email, I'm completely healed! I do not have a growth anymore on my neck and certainly no scar. Jesus touched me.  Now, l'm here at Christ for Nations Institute as a first year student in Dallas, Texas. Every summer the school sends out students on short-term mission trips to bring the impact of the kingdom of God to the Nations.  This summer, I will be joining the outreach team to Mexico.  We will focus on prayer walks, preaching and healing ministry which is my main thrust since I have seen Jesus heal me through your prayer.

GOOD MORNING JESUS, BE MY LORD

After just arriving to the hospital a message from the ward informed me that an older man who had surgery two days ago was in need of an injection of relaxation medication. Initially I said to call on of the house doctors to attend to this request. Then the Spirit spoke and said to give him an injection of Jesus, so off I went with Pastor Moses. We entered the ward and spoke to Joseph, a 70 year old man who two days prior had surgery with Dr. Kevin Braat for what appeared to be a cancer of the thyroid. He was complaining of a headache and the nurse stated that he was confused and restless last night. The man agreed to allow us to pray for him. We did pray, his headache left him.

On the way out of the room I met Joseph's son Joseph Jr.  He saw the power of the Holy Spirit take away his Dad's headache and he agreed to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Dr.Braat and I prayed with him and it was wonderful.  Good morning Jesus, what a great way to start the day.

FROM BORING TO SOARING…

A fourteen year old girl sang with the worship group last year when the Bridge for Peace team came to her town. This year she joined the worship group to lead praise during a Bridge for Peace training session. She sought Ed and me out at the lunch break to tell us what happened the year before and said, “I thought it was going to be boring. Instead, the message touched me, I had prayer from Ed and I was healed of my depression! I said I would sing for the session today, I was looking forward to seeing you again.  But, when I found out the teaching today was six hours I thought, Oh, no! What will we do for six hours...But it’s been like...where has the morning gone!?!.... “My little sister has been really sick with stomach problems. They sent her for tests, but no one knows what it is…I told her, “I’m bringing you to Bridge for Peace when they come. Jesus will heal you.”

This now fifteen year old girl received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gift of tongues in the morning session. In the afternoon she learned how to lay hands on the sick and pray for their healing.

That evening she came to me and said, “I went home and laid my hands on my sister. I was going to speak to her pain in Jesus Name and tell it to leave, like we did today in the workshop. So I put my hands on her and then I started praying, but the gift of tongues just gushed out!”

Thank God. Our hopes were fulfilled. Empowered and equipped, she doesn’t have to wait for anyone to come and pray for her loved ones. She now knows how to pray in the Name of Jesus for His glory.

BURN THAT BOOK…

“How are you tonight?” I asked the man who appeared to have Parkinson’s Disease. “Ask me after prayer,” he replied. I spoke on “Focus on the Goal” that night, and I saw him listening intently. As the team prepared to pray, I went to him. Sally and Elena were also drawn to pray for him. God had given me a word of encouragement for the gentleman. After sharing that, I moved on knowing the ladies would pray with Holy Spirit power. Later, Sally said, “His whole face transformed when you gave him that word.” I saw it, too.

Sally said, “I asked if he had anyone to forgive. He said, ‘Yes. I keep a book of everyone who has ever hurt me.’” We spoke a bit and he did choose to forgive. Finally, he said, “I’m going home to burn the book!” His tremors reduced.

To whom it may concern: You might be stunned to read this man kept a physical book of wrongs done to him. But how often do we excuse ourselves for writing chapters of how we were offended in our minds. Burn the book, forgive and start to live the good life God has planned for you. It’s sinful to look for satisfaction in brooding over hurts and planning revenge. Realize Satan is tempting you. Forgive others, and ask God to forgive you for holding unforgiveness. Start experiencing the fullness of life God has for you.

BLESSED WITH A CHILD

The most rewarding moment of this Zambia Mission for me was seeing Grace, who I had operated on the year before. She had a large fibroid tumor that needed to be removed and she was worried that removing it would affect her fertility. She was newly married and really wanted a family. This year, she came to the hospital to see our team, and brought her 13 month-old daughter with her. When the child saw me, she stretched out her arms and gave me the biggest hug, as if she knew me. It brought tears to my eyes, and in that moment, I understood the importance of our surgical mission . To God be the glory!
