Depression is a terrible thing to fight. It puts a cloud around you and drags you down like weights tied to your body and cobwebs in your mind.

Depression can be the result of a myriad of physical, mental, emotional, and environmental factors working alone or in combination. Sometimes there is something physically wrong that needs a doctors care. We at Inspirational-Prayers are not trying to keep you from seeking medical attention.

No matter what the cause, prayer always helps. We at Inspirational-Prayers believe in miracles - plain and simple. We also believe that prayer aids doctors.

~

We believe that every prayer prayed makes a positive difference.

~

Be sure and read all the tips  - even those at the bottom of the page.

Prayer for Depression for Women -

Scroll down to see the version for Men.

~ ~


Father,

I lift up to you this hurting woman who is suffering from depression.

Lord,

Your love is everlasting.

Your steadfast attention is daily directed toward this woman you love. Your compassion is changing things in her life as prayer is being lifted up to you.

Your Word promises us that we are safe in your hand. By faith we know that you are protecting us.

Teach her, Lord, how to receive your good gifts.

Remind her to open her Bible. Direct her toward the passages in your Word that will encourage and motivate her.

Give her strength to press through this difficult time and come to rest beside the still waters of your peaceful presence.

Lord, teach this woman how to pick up the shield of faith to defend herself against the fiery darts of hopelessness and depression.

Thank you, Father, that you are moving on her behalf. Thank you that you are giving her revelations that will lift her out of the reach of depression. Thank you, that you are bringing her hope and encouragement.

In Jesus' Name we pray,

Amen

Great Ideas to Help Defeat Depression

This idea comes from a woman living in Georgia. She had fought depression for several months and the main strategy she found to defeat depression was reading Psalms 145 - 150 every day. When she had read them for several days, things begin to shift.


~

Since people fighting depression tend to have major issues with motivation, we at Inspirational-Prayers have recorded those psalms for you. You can come here and play them at your convenience. You also may want to record yourself reading those psalms.

Great Ideas to Help Defeat Depression


The following idea comes from a friend of Inspirational-Prayers.
She was contemplating asking her doctor for some kind of medication for depression. One of her friends suggested taking two L-Tryptophan and one L-Tyrosine each day. (You get them at a health food store.)
The woman checked with her doctor before trying them.
When she tried them, her depression went away.

Be sure to consult your doctor before taking anything for depression. Note that some medications may not react well with other
over-the-counter or health food medications.
Do adequate research and get your doctor's recommendation.

Through my battles with depression and discouragement, I have found that making proclamations is one of my main strategies for defeating depression.

Proclamations are basically "I will" statements

that reflect biblical truth.
