A Prayer for Hope and Healing amid Depression”

Scripture – Psalm 34:18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.


Heavenly Father,

In this moment of darkness and despair, we seek solace and healing before You. We acknowledge that depression has cast its shadow upon our lives, but we hold onto the promise that You are near to the brokenhearted and that You save the crushed in spirit.

Lord, we lift our weary souls to You, knowing You are the source of all hope and light. We ask for Your divine intervention and guidance as we navigate through this season of difficulty. Surround us with Your unconditional love, grace, and understanding.

Grant us the strength to face each day, even when the weight of depression feels unbearable. Help us to find comfort in Your Word and to cling to the promises You have spoken over our lives. Remind us that You are the God of restoration and that Your power is made perfect in our weakness.

Teach us to lean on You, O Lord, and to surrender our burdens at Your feet. Fill our hearts with peace that surpasses all understanding, replacing our anxiety and despair with a renewed sense of purpose and joy. May Your Holy Spirit dwell within us, bringing comfort and healing to the depths of our souls.

Father, we also pray for those around us who may be battling similar depression. Grant us compassion and empathy to be a source of strength and encouragement to them. Give us the words to speak, the ears to listen, and the hearts to love them unconditionally, just as You love us.

Finally, we declare victory over depression in the mighty name of Jesus. We rebuke the darkness and claim Your light to shine upon us. May Your healing touch restore our minds, bodies, and spirits, bringing us into a place of wholeness and freedom.

We offer this prayer with unwavering faith, trusting that You are faithful to fulfil Your promises. We find our hope, refuge, and strength in You, O Lord. We thank You for the power of prayer and Your transformative love.

In Jesus’ name, we pray.
