Depression


For myself:

Lord, I am desperate for You. You know all about my depression. Lord, you know what is causing it and what will cure it. Lord, if it stems from a medical cause, please lead me to the proper nutrition or medicine. If it stems from an emotional cause, please give me the hugs and talking it through and the community that I need. If it stems from past moral behavior, please reveal that to me and help me to place my sins and/or the sins that others committed against me on Jesus. If demons are involved, I pray in the name of Jesus, that you will deliver me and rescue me from their grip, their lies, and their influence and send them far away. If my depression stems from a combination of these, Lord, I pray that you will deal with each one and deliver me completely. Help me to believe that You are always with me - even when I cannot see You or feel You! Be the lifter of my head so that I can see Jesus clearly and follow wherever You lead me. Please give me the abundant life that you promise. Save me, Lord! Quiet me with Your love, Rejoice over me with your singing! In Jesus' name, Amen.
