Prayer for Psalm 43:5

“Why am I so depressed? Why this turmoil within me? Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him, my Savior and my God.”

Praying through Psalm 43:5

Heavenly Father, there is much in this fallen world that can drag us into depression and distress of soul, but my hope is in You for You are the Anchor of my soul and the Rock of my salvation. When my soul is inclined towards despair or when fear begins to creep into my heart, I pray that I would hope in God, fix my mind on Jesus, trust You with all my heart, and present my life to you as a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Thank You that You are my God, the Lover of my soul, the Light of the world, and the joy of all the ends of the earth. My hope is in You and I praise Your name forever and ever, AMEN.
