We need Hope ...


We need Hope.


This is written in June 2020 in the U.S.A. 


There is an attack on HOPE in our country.

Let's not forget that Hope has another name - JESUS!


The enemy of our soul has launched an attack

to take away

Hope

and everything else he can get his hands on.


This has lead many people to fight depression

and some even to experience

suicidal thoughts. 


No one is immune

to being touched by depression and hopelessness. 


This page has videos and prayer.



Addressing Depression

especially in this time in history.




The biggest decision you have

in depressing times is:

Will I draw closer to God

or

will I draw away from God?


Let's PRAY 

for ourselves and for others.


Dear Lord,

We are calling out to you in our times of difficulties.

We are calling out to you

as we watch

distressing and confusing events. 


We lift up our pleas for help

as we combat

the constant barrage of hopelessness

that is coming from the media. 


We lift up our pleas for comfort

 as we move from day to day in a world that is broken.


We lift up our pleas for stability

in a world that sometimes appears to have abandoned

justice, common sense, decency, compassion, and godliness. 


We cry out for your mercy. 


Supernaturally lift us up today above it all.

And remind us of things

that we can do to cooperate with you

in

welcoming and encouraging godly thoughts and emotions.

We need strategies and we need motivation.

Show us how to receive more of your peace.

Give us practical, specific instructions.


We lean on you this day

as we intentionally receive your assurance

that you love us and that you are watching carefully

all that has to do with us.

We pray in the healing name of Jesus,

Amen

Lord, we are reaching out to you...

with our burdens and troubles.






Lord...

A huge portion of the world is apathetic about you at best

and rebellious about you at worst. 

I lift up prayer to you for refreshment

as I live in this anti-Jesus world.

I pray for help

in the name of Jesus, my Hope,

Amen

Things   that   increase   Hope


As Christians,

God wants to teach us to rise above

the natural

and

live in a realm of the

Supernatural.


Note: If you are not sure you are right with God, click here: Explaining Christianity


Lord, 

I call out to you to

give me ideas and help so that I can

live in a 

Supernatural

Way

where 

Your Hope 

encourages me

no matter what the circumstances.

Amen!


Encourage me,

Lord!


 Encouragement
Ideas


How do you

renew your strength

when you become emotionally exhausted?


It is helpful to write a list of

Christian songs,

Scripture,

Prayers, etc.

that help to elevate your mood....

Run to that list when Hope begins to dwindle.


Take note:

In 1 Kings 19:4 -

Elijah felt that hope was gone for him.

He felt like giving up.

But God provided some supernatural food for him. 


Be ready to receive the supernatural that God is going to give you.

AND take note that you also need to walk toward the supernatural in ways such as ....

***  Putting on the Armor of God...

that we MUST put ON the Armor of God
