Prayer to Remove the Darkness

by Jon John (Rowland Heights, CA)

Dear Lord,

Please pray for me. I am in the darkest place of my life. I am suffering from depression and panic attacks. I haven’t slept more than an hour for almost 9 months now. Non of the specialists can fix this chronic insomnia. It’s not that I have difficulty sleeping, it’s that I can’t sleep normally.

I can’t even doze. I year I was the worlds best sleeper. This has taken its toll on me and my family. The burden is all on my wife. I can’t work or do simple tasks. Suicide crosses my mind often. Please lift my faith, take care of my faithful wife, let me sleep again and put my family back together. I ask this in your name Jesus Christ.

My brother count it all Joy when you fall into divers temptations. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith work ethic patience. James 1:2-3 verse. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust you in the Lord forever; for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength. Isaiah 26:3-4 verse. The Lord loves you my brother and I Love you too! Your live matters to us All and the Lord have need of you! Hold on a little while longer! The Lord will provide!

    Good evening, I prayed our Lords peace and comfort over you this evening, that all strongholds that prevent you from sleeping be broken and that victory and Gods light remove all traces of darkness from the life that The Lord wants you to live. I enter into agreement with you and lift your name to the only true giver of peace. May The Lord bless you with peace and rest and in Jesus name all powers of darkness must flea in his Holy light. Be blessed my brother, sleep well.

  4. Hopeful Heart

    I pray that God lifts your suicidal thoughts and fills your heart with hope. Trust God. He can give you the rest you seek. Know that God is with you every minute of every day. You are not alone!

    Share your dark thoughts with a pastor or counselor. Let them help you help yourself. Don’t keep this darkness to yourself. It will only end badly. Talk to your wife. Talk to God. He’s such a good listener!

    God please restore this man’s good health; grant him peace, joy and a hopeful heart.

    Visit this place, O Lord we pray
    and drive far from it the snares of the enemy

    Lighten the darkness we beseech thee O Lord

    for the love of Thy only Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ

  6. tormenting spirit..

    To be pruned and tested is to bring forth more fruit..what men cannot do is to learn GOD can not be tetsed! who is that that can confond the almighty? Can anyone baffle him ar cause him confusion?? He delights in doing the impossible with nothing..Ask for sleep from the halls of the heavens..ask for the queen of peace to intersession..calm your mind with :The weapon” the rosary is the most powerful prayer!! Devestating to demons and hindering spirits..accept peace and embrace it. Let it flood your spirit and provide you with a peace of all understanding..You are very close to a break thru..Remember the beads are the weapon.if you only khew what damage they do to the devils plans!! .

  7. Your depression

    I also suffer from panic attacks and depression.mine is caused from Graves’ disease which is a thyroid disorder. I take medication but find meditations for depression an anxiety on u tube very helpful. Please don’t give up there are better days ahead.your family needs you. I will pray for you.

  8. I am praying for you

    As a person that struggles with depression.. I know how bad it can get! I have been hoping a job opportunity would
    come along, but nothing. Money is getting tighter and tighter and I can not sleep a whole night. They say God only gives you what you can handle. Maybe I can give you what little I have left. So take some of my lil strength and maybe walk around. For very bad thought think of how much better you have than others.

    I am praying for you!
