Prayer for Depression—Psalm 40:1-3
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus. Father God, Your Word says that if I come near to You, You will come near to me. Father God, I call to You now and ask You to be with me and make Yourself known to me in this time of depression. I recognize that this spirit is not from You, but from the enemy, and I rebuke it and refuse it right now in the name of Jesus. Father, Your Word says that You heal the broken hearted and binds up their wounds and though in this moment in time I may be down, I trust Your Word, and am putting myself in Your hands so that this scripture may come to pass in my life. I recognize that depression is not of the light, but of darkness, and I believe that Your word is the light that causes darkness to flee, therefore depression has no place in my life. I believe Lord, that I can cast all my cares and anxieties on You because You care for me. Therefore, right now, in the name of Jesus, I cast all my cares and anxieties on You today. I believe that You have set me free, and I am free indeed. I trust you as my deliverer, redeemer, restorer, and comforter. And in the mighty name of Jesus, I cancel any depression in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
