depression

Please I need all the prayers I can get. I have had depression for a long time now & it seems to be getting worse. I do not know if I can make it thru christmas, I love a Jesus with my whole being. Have great faith & pray everyday.

Gracious and merciful Father, please come to their assistance.

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

Remember always, You are loved. You are Gods beautiful creation.
You are special.You are awesome. You are loved. I don’t know you, but
I love you.

:highprayer:

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have
faith in God; have faith also in me.

John 14:1

Holy Virgin Mary, you are reigning in glory, with Jesus, your Son.
Remember us in our sadness. Look kindly on all who are suffering
or fighting against any difficulty.

Have pity on those who are separated from someone they love.
Have pity on the loneliness of our hearts.
Have pity on the weakness of our faith and love.
Have pity on those who are weeping, on those who are praying, on those who are fearful.

Holy Mother, please obtain for all of us hope and peace with justice.
Amen.

OUR LADY OF MENTAL PEACE PRAYER
O Lady of Mental Peace,
Mother of Tranquility and
Mother of Hope,
look upon me in this time
of disquiet and weakness.
Still my restless spirit,
teach my searching heart to know
that God’s love for me
is unchanging and that the suffering
which He may will for me now
is to draw me closer to Him.
Let thy gentle peace and His —
which the world cannot give —
be always with me, that I may
be sanctified: and then:
I beseech thee
for the grace to bring this
peace to others.
Jesus, My Savior, I give myself
entirely to Thee through Mary:
Our Lady of Mental Peace,
pray for me!
Amen

Come to me, Lord and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate
my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart. I am
Yours to possess.
I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to
spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You.
Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me
never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as you do,
dwelling within me.
I am Yours Lord, I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the
Father. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions
of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself.
Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change whats in my
heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love
You. Come and dwell in me now.
Amen

In every need let me come to You with humble trust, saying:
Jesus, help me!
In all my doubts, perplexities and temptations:
Jesus, help me!
In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials:
Jesus, help me!
In the failure of my plans and hopes, in disappointments, troubles and sorrows:
Jesus, help me!
When others fail me, and Your grace alone can assist me:
Jesus, help me!
When I throw myself on Your tender Love as a Father and Savior:
Jesus, help me!
When my heart is cast down by failure, at seeing no good come from my efforts:
Jesus, help me!
When I feel impatient, and my cross irritates me:
Jesus, help me!
When I am ill, and my head and hands cannot work and I am lonely:
Jesus, help me!
Always, always, in spite of weakness, falls and shortcomings of every kind:
Jesus, help me and never forsake me.
Amen

Glory be to the Father and
to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be
World without end.
Amen

Thank You so much for these beautiful prayers. I have no doubt someday god will lift this burden from me.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

[INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]A Prayer Against Depression

O Christ Jesus
When all is darkness
And we feel our weakness and helplessness,
Give us the sense of Your Presence,
Your Love and Your Strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
In Your protecting love
And strengthening power,
So that nothing may frighten or worry us,
For, living close to You,
We shall see Your Hand,
Your Purpose, Your Will through all things.

By St. Ignatius of Loyola

Thank You all so much for these prayers. I know Our Lord is good the faith I have will someday lift this burden from me.

Almighty and Eternal God,
Give us, I beseech You,
the great gift of inward peace.
Command the winds and storms
of our unruly passions.
Subdue, by Your grace,
Our proneness to love
created things too much.
Give us a love of suffering for Your sake.
make us forbearing and kind to others,
that we may avoid quarrels and contentions.
And teach us to constantly to seek after
and to acquire that perfect resignation
to Your Holy Will
which alone brings interior peace.

Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
