I'm depressed, Lord, and want to be over it. I'm really tired of this struggle. I want to be full of You. Please help me to not be depressed anymore. Help me to walk in faith. Help me to love others as You have loved me. And please show me Yourself.
I feel like giving up Lord. But You can sustain me, and even revive me. Give me help from on high! Give me grace, and glory. Take from me all false understandings of Yourself, of myself, and of everyone and everything around me. By Your Spirit, loosen the grip of my iniquity, for my heart is still so evil, and my mind so corrupt.
Help me to feel close to You. Help me to draw close to You, as You have commanded me. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." (James 4:8)
Away with my sin! Oh, this heavy body! It is not just sin that crushes me, but a chemical imbalance that reflects the fall of all creation. Thank You for medication, Lord. You are so kind.
Please give me someone to talk to Lord. A messenger of Your care, if it is Your will at this time.
I look to You and wait. To You alone belongs all power and joy and wisdom. By Your grace I will be filled with these things, for You love me. You can and will do this. If not now, then later. And in the end You are coming on the clouds of glory. Oh, hasten the day!
As I taste mildly the darkness of the cross, help me to consider Your Word: "For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison..." (2 Corinthians 4:17) I thank You as I wait. "He has made everything beautiful in its time." (Ecclesiastes 3:11a)
