Prayer in time of Depression, Doubts and Confusion:
In this world of conflict and confusion, my mind is torn apart by questions and doubts that steal my sleep at night and rob me of my peace during the day. But you are my light, the One who lights my flickering candle and keeps it burning. You know all the darkest corners of my soul, the things I try to hide even from myself, and you love me as I am.
The stench of my sins did not drive you away from me, but you filled my heart with a strong desire to be healed and a deep longing for you.
That’s why I come before you today and I pray with all my heart: show me the way out of this labyrinth, don’t let go of my hand, so that even if I walk through a dark tunnel, I can still feel the warm touch of your hand guiding me.
You are the light that gave light to my eyes, the love that gave love to my soul. In you I lack nothing, in you nothing can harm me, in you my victory is complete. Bring me to you and keep me by your heart.
Father, I know I am weak. My weakness is my pain and my torment. I can feel it every day, it’s like a poison coming from inside and I am so weary of fighting it. But I am yours and that is my only consolation, the thought that gives me rest and strength to carry on. I am yours and to you I pray: Father, take care of what is yours. Take this burden off my shoulders, don’t let me carry it alone.
I have put my soul in your hands, keep it safe. Release me from the grip of my own mind, protect me from my own destructive thoughts. I cannot do it without your help.
You have walked this way of thorns yourself and you have carried the cross until the end. Help me do the same and never forsake me. You alone know what lies ahead. Remain in me, so that I can overcome the world and taste the joy you have prepared for your beloved.
In the name of our beloved Jesus Christ.
