Prayer for Healing while Living with Depression all my life

by Deirdre (Newry)

Dear God, I live with the burden of depression most of my life, I am now in my 50’s and would love to live the rest of my life without this heavy burden.

It has affected me all my life, I live alone, have a job that I tolerate and my house is a mess to match the way I feel, there is no get up and go, I just want to crawl into bed and stay there, I don’t feel depressed when I sleep.

I am ashamed of the way I am feeling and would ask if prayers could help me, feel well, cope with my life, tidy my house and live my life.
