Lord Jesus, I come to you with a heavy heart for my son who suffers from depression. He sees no reason to want to be on this earth. He has no motivation to keep going, and he does not believe he can ever get well. He won’t take his meds consistently, or seek out mental health counseling. He does not know how to believe in you. Holy Spirit, guide my words and actions so that I can be here to help him. Father God, lift this cloud of depression from my son’s life, and help him to come back to you, like when he was a child and he knew you were there to keep him safe. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
