Prayer for Depression


Prayer For Depression To Lift

O Lord God, Life has become such a struggle and I find that my faith in You is being seriously challenged - but Lord I know that Your Word says that You are there for me all the time and that You would never leave me to struggle alone. Please help me to turn my thoughts to You every single time this black depression tries to descend upon me and bring to mind those Scripture that tell the truth of Your love and grace.

Be with me Lord at those times when doubts of Your love for me rise up in my mind - and help me to reaffirm in my heart all that You have done for me, throughout my life. When my faith is threatened by those negative thoughts that say that You could never love me – let me remember that You loved me so much that You died to save me and have clothed me in Your perfect righteousness.

When assurance in my salvation and eternal security starts to waver– help me to recall that You loved me so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to die for me and pay the price for all my sins – for which I thank You Lord, and help me to reaffirm the truth in my heart.

When I find myself wandering far from You and little murmurings rise in my heart…that You cant love me as much as other people because things are so difficult in my life – prevent me from dwelling on such lies – for You alone are good and gracious and faithful and true.

And Lord when depression is set to invade my peace help me to claim the promise that Your grace is sufficient for me and trust You in all things – thank You Lord in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

For A Christian Friend Going Through Depression

Loving Lord I come to You on behalf of a friend and colleague that I care about but who is going through such deep depression, and sadly he seems to have given up on life and does not want to speak to me or anyone else - causing him to sink lower in the cess-pit of doubting Your love, despairing of life and sinking into an ever deepening depression.

Lord I pray that You would meet this man at his point of need and give Him the reassurance of Your love in his spirit and Your hope in his heart. I ask You Lord, to lift the curtain of doubt that has played such havoc with his assurance of salvation in Y0u and which has caused him to walk away from the joy he once knew in You.

Give me wisdom as I lift my friend up in prayer show me the way that I can be a support to him in his time of trouble. Meet him Lord at his point of need I pray, and restore to him the joy of Your salvation and peace that only comes from You. I ask this in Jesus name,

Amen

Prayer For Help In Times Of Despair

O Lord God I feel weak and weary, helpless and hopeless and darkness seems to have invaded my very being… Give me a sense of Your presence and Your closeness, and pour into my heart that peace You promised to all Your children, that passes understanding, I pray.

Lord God at time I just want to give up in despair as a black depression slowly descends on me and there seems little that I can do to stop it…and yet I know that this is not Your will for my life – for You came from heaven to give us light and hope and You have said that Your strength is made perfect in my weakness.

Be my strength I pray in my weakness. Be my light in my darkness. Be my hope in this deep depression and be that perfect love that casts out the fear and pain that I have in my heart – which so often tries to put its icy fingers around my throat.

Lord God I cry to You at this time of depression in my life for in my heart I know that You alone are my only hope. Lift me Lord from this crippling depression and draw me back into close fellowship with Yourself…I truly believe that when my mind is thinking about You, that depression has little opportunity to invade my peace – help me to keep my mind on You and Your many precious promises, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Mercy For Those Struggling With Their Faith

Heavenly Father You are our refuge and strength in the bad times as well as the good times – and although the difficulties of life so often cause us to tighten our grip, on the hope we have in You, there are some dear believers that struggle with depression and who fall into despair when times of trouble hit their lives.

Lord we grieve when this causes men and women to question their hope in You and even walk away from the trust they had in the Lord Jesus Christ. But You are a God of great grace and loving-kindness, and we bring before You all believers who are going through the testing of their faith in the form of despair or depression today.

Look down in pity and mercy on all who are struggling in this way. Bring peace and comfort I pray, to all who are facing the pain that depression brings, and reach down in Your love to touch each life and to draw them back into Your loving arms of forgiveness and grace. We ask this if the lovely name of Jesus,

Amen

To Recall God’s Promises In Time Of Depression

Lord Jesus I have proved in my life that when I am weighed down with sin and cares and the worries of life, that an evil depression invariably descends on me and drags me down into greater despair.

Lord I don’t want to succumb to this act of unbelief in my life – for I have learned that depression and despair are the fruit of unbelief while the fruit of the spirit are the treasures You give to those that hope in the Lord – no matter what problems life may throw at us.

Help me not to be afraid or discouraged when things go wrong… not to dwell on the problem, but when evil thoughts arise in my heart, bring to my mind Your word of truth I pray, for Your word is health and healing and strength to my soul.

Help me to remember that the eternal God is my refuge and strength, and underneath are Your everlasting arms to support and carry me. Help Me Lord to cast all my cares on You for You have promised to sustain me and never to let me fall. Help me to remember that You are the one that can heal my broken-heart and bind up all my wounds and help me not to be anxious for anything…

Lord I lift this prayer to You - with thanksgiving knowing that You are a God Who hears and answers all that cry out to You.. so guard my heart and mind I pray, in Christ Jesus .

Amen

Prayer for my mental suffering

I Prayed For This Prayed for 29 time.
Lord Jesus, I feel totally overwhelmed by how lonely, depressed, worthless, ugly and jealous I feel. Despite me praying, worshipping and reading my bible it is as though the darkness in my chest is not allowing my heart to feel joy. Lord I am so disheartened that I want to end my life. Please continue to work in my heart, to teach me to command these awful, sinful feelings to leave my mind and body, in Jesus name. I need the comfort of the Holy Spirit around me. Lord please bless all those that need you more than me. Thank you for such an understanding and grace. I am truly blessed to have you as my Lord and saviour. Amen.

My Best Friend

I Prayed For This Prayed for 26 time.
Dear Lord, She has depression, and told me that she thinks she's developing anorexia. I've been a counselor for her as best I could, but I feel this is something beyond what I can do. We are both very young,and I intend to tell her mother soon. But now I'm wishing that God had chosen another, I want her to continue to trust me. She tends to joke about suicide, and now I'm more worried than ever. I feel hopeless. I ask for strength, and her healing in his name, and I pray that you will to.
No name please.

About spiritual and emotional depression

I Prayed For This Prayed for 25 time.
Please, I live alone for long time in a place for disable people. Although I am a believer in Jesus and in the bible, I also sufer of depression and anxiety . Because of that , I also suffer of chronic insomnia. I'm taking medication for it for the last 4 years, but some times doesn't help me much and give me side effect. Because of all of that, I also suffer very often of feelings of loneliness because I am here alone without family nor frends. some days I feel very stressful and very low and I cry out to the Lord many times wishing that he will come very soon, then when I feel better and more calmed, I confessed and repent of my sins. Please, pray for my daily emotional struggles here in my lonely journey of faith with the Lord Jesus, my loving savior and my only hope of living in this world. thank you very kindly, Carlos

Dear Lord, I am suffering from depression for the last 4yrs. Four years ago I committed a sin, by trying to hang myself but our loving Jesus saved me. So I had my medicines for 4yrs but stil I feel depressed about my job status and family financial concerns but we all pray everyday to loving Jesus Christ.  I come to you Lord to help me and my family. I don't have good memory so I can't learn or grasp things in  an office very well. Because of this everybody smiles at me.  I pray that I can stand in front of all in the name of Jesus. Lastly my younger brother just completed B.Tech Computer Science four  months back and he is also very depressed for not getting job, so I pray to you Lord........Praise The Lord....Amen!!!

Help with my depression

I Prayed For This Prayed for 17 time.

Dear Lord I have reached out to several  Christians for help and to talk. I am depressed and so sad and alone. They say they are Christians but sure don't act like it, I pray God that you would show them the error of their way. When one Christian reaches out to other Christians, shouldn't you at least talk to them. Lord  have been hurt deeply by what they did. Please answer me God, please God help them and help me with my depression.  I don't know where the Christians are anymore. I pray for someone to come into my life to help me.
