Please pray for me. I'm really depressed. I don't even know what to say, no words can describe :'( Just really need prayers. Thanks.
Psalm 23 is always great. Pray using the words of the Holy Spirit through King David the Psalmist.
Psalm 34:17 –
The righteous cry out, and the LORD
them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
Psalm 30:5 –
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Isaiah 40:31 –
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Psalm 147:3 –
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Isaiah 41:10 –
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you
; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
may God give u His peace which is beyond understanding.
have u talked to yr spiritual father?
You are in my prayers
But please do not dispair, because you know self: for everything God has a reason and he will never forsake you. A couple of days ago I felt so bad (not depressive, because depressive is an psychologic disorder) and I didn't know what to do. I prayed for these last days continue, didn't give up. I read the Bible and I found God's message to me, which comforted me. Nowadays I am feeling much better, so really don't give up!!
Btw: do you really think you are depressive? Or are you having a bad time for a while (like 2 months or less)? Because if you think you are, or if you are not sure, I would reccomend you to get a psychiatrist.
When you are in the mood, tell us some more about it.
Also, try to talk to your FOC. God is your saviour!!!
Thanks caji, CopticStrength, and Khas.
mabsoota, I'm supposed to speak with him tomorrow God willing.
I've been depressed the last six years of my life, on and off. Recently, I haven't been able to shake it off at all. I may have a happy moment very briefly, but even then I still feel depressed. I saw a therapist for a few months, it didn't particularly help. She was providing me with solutions that I could not use. I actually really can't talk about it. It's too complex and I don't want to share it. I hope I can figure something out with my FOC but even lately, that really hasn't been working either...
Please continue praying for me. Thanks.
