A Prayer When Depressed


A Prayer to Pray When You are Fighting Depression

"The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." Proverbs 1:10

Dear Father God,

I’m reaching out to you, Lord, in my despair. I’m depressed and don’t see an end in sight. I’m burdened down with so many things and it’s crushing my spirit. It’s all I can do to just pray this prayer. I cry out to you, my God. How long must I have sorrow in my heart? I need you to come near and rescue me. Save me from the deep waters of depression, which threaten to overtake me. Hear my cry, see my tears, and deliver me. Turn my crying into dancing, my despair into joy. Help me to praise you in the middle of it all. Renew my strength so I can keep going. In you and your word alone, I put my hope. Keep a firm grip on me so I won’t fall or get lost. You are my rescuer. You are my refuge. You are my strong tower. You are my place of safety and rest. I run to you and am saved!

In Jesus' Name, Amen.
