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. 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 You, 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, restore to him the joy of Your salvation and give him the peace that only comes from You. I ask this in Jesus' name,
