Prayer For Deep Despair

God I need You – if You are there please God help me.  I feel just overwhelmed with a darkness and a despair that seems to cover me like a shroud and stifles my breathing - I hurt Lord so deeply. Please help. I feel overwhelmed and perplexed and Lord I don’t even know why I feel like this or even how to pray, but please Lord, I ask for You to help me and save me from being completely crushed in spirit and soul.

There is a Psalm about a good Shepherd and I need You to help me like a shepherd would help a sheep in difficulties - The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Please Lord, be my good Shepherd and help me I pray. Lead my by the quiet waters and please restore my soul as You have promised.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Thank You that You have promised to be with me even when I am in deep despair and thank You that You are always there to comfort me and help me – no matter what troubles and difficulties I am having to face.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Thank You that You have promised to supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory and thank You that there is nothing that is going on in my life that You do not know about and care about..

Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Thank You Lord that Your mercies are new every morning… Help me to trust You even when I feel alone – because You have promised to be my good Shepherd and your promises never fail,
