My Help 4 Depression...

moving beyond the negative stigma of depression by working toward
emotional, physical and spiritual health.
  "I've already been praying for help but
            I haven't had any results."

If you've already been praying for help with no results, ask yourself if you are truly doing what you know God wants you to do. Are you obedient? Has God led you to seek counseling but you haven't taken that step? Pray for direction in finding a helpful counselor or therapist. Has God led you to the possibility of taking a supplement or medication but you haven't seen a doctor? Pray for guidance in gathering information or selecting a doctor.

Many times we have a problem and forget to get God's help with it or take action once a direction is revealed.

Some examples of what you can prayer for include:

  • direction
  • encouragement, reassurance, a deeper relationship with God
  • forgiveness
  • healing from emotional wounds
  • awareness of God's goodness
  • friends who are a positive influence
  • strength

Then wait for God's timing instead of the hurried "gotta have it now" pace of life. He will bring many pieces together in a supernatural way to answer your prayers. Continue having faith in what you know is true - not what you see. Satan is the enemy and will lie, misrepresent, and manipulate your emotions to destroy and keep you from having the life God wants for you.

" For we live by believing and not by seeing."
        - 2 Corinthians 5:7

"...keep on doing what is right, and trust  your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you."
         -1 Peter 4:19

"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you...In his kindness God called  you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation."
      -1 Peter 5:7, 10

"...The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results."
                                                              - James 5:16

"He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me."
                                                             - Psalm 18:19
