5 prayers for healing depression that you can use

Depression is a medical condition. But that doesn’t mean the spiritual side has to be ignored. Giving hope is a powerful way to battle depression. Praying to a Supreme Being of your choice can bolster hope that someone out there in the universe is not only paying attention to you and your troubles, but that a positive solution is possible. Prayer is both inspirational and motivational. Here are 5 prayers for healing depression.

Prayer For Healing Depression

Dear Lord, I am suffering from depression and anxiety disorder. Thank you for giving me the medical attention that has helped place my soul back into my skin. Give all of us who suffer this stress the courage and strength to trust you and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us. Through your love all things are possible.

In Jesus’ name we praise you. Amen.

Prayer For Battling Depression

God bless all who are battling those inner demons of depression, loneliness, unworthiness, and hopelessness. Shine Your warm Heavenly Light down upon all of us. Guide us to find peace, happiness, and contentment in our lives and within ourselves. Amen.

St. Francis de Sales Prayer For Hope

Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then. Put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations, and say continually: “The Lord is my strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in Him and I am helped. He is not only with me but in me, and I in Him.”

Prayer For Inner Peace

Heavenly Father, please grant me peace of mind and calm my troubled heart. My soul is like a turbulent sea. I can’t seem to find my balance so I stumble and worry constantly. Give me the strength and clarity of mind to find my purpose and walk the path you’ve laid out for me. I trust your Love God, and know that you will help me out of this darkness. Just as the sun rises each day against the dark of night. Please bring me clarity with the light of God.

In Your name I pray. Amen.

A Prayer For Hope

Heavenly father, I am your humble servant, I come before you today in need of hope. There are times when I fell helpless, There are times when I feel weak. I pray for hope. I need hope for a better future. I need hope for a better life. I need hope for love and kindness. Some say that the sky is at its darkest just before the light. I pray that this is true, for all seems dark. I need your light, Lord, in every way. I pray to be filled with your light from head to toe. To bask in your glory. To know that all is right in the world, as you have planned, and as you want it to be. Help me to walk in your light, and live my life in faith and glory.

In Your name I pray. Amen.

Please remember that prayer alone is not enough when dealing with depression. Make sure the person visits a medical professional for help.
