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


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


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


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,

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 ....
