2 Powerful Prayers for Depression

Are you feeling depressed today? The best thing you can do is to pray. These 2 Powerful Prayers Against Depression affirm a few important facts. First, they affirm what Scripture affirms. That darkness is real but that God is stronger. The Lord is present with us even when we do not feel His presence; and He is more powerful than any challenge or season of hardship. Second, they remind us that we are weak without the Lord but are strong in Him. We strengthen ourselves “in Him” by praying and believing. Third, God’s plan for your life will oftentimes seem confusing. But God promises to one day make it all clear if you do not give up. Know in your heart that your best days are coming; that with faith, this is God’s unbreakable promise. Trust in Him and remain perseverant in prayer.


2 Powerful Prayers for Depression

“Stay with me, Lord,
for it is necessary that I have Your presence
so that I do not forget You.
You know how easily I can abandon You.

Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak,
and I need Your strength, so that I may not fall so often.
Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life,
and without You I am without any fervor.
Stay with Me, Lord, for You are my Light,
and without You I am in darkness.
Stay with me, Lord, and show me Your Will.
Stay with me, Lord, so that
I hear Your voice and follow You.
Stay with me, Lord, for I desire
to love You very much,
and to always be in Your company.
Stay with me, Lord, if You
wish for me to be faithful to You.
Stay with me, Lord,
for as poor as my soul is,
I want it to be a place of consolation for You,
a forever nest of love.
Stay with me, Lord, I need You now;
stay with me, Lord I always do.

Stay with me, Lord, I pray to You.
In Your Good and Holy Name I pray,
Amen.”

[Adapted prayer from St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina]

“O Christ Jesus,
When all is darkness
and I feel my weakness and helplessness,
give me the sense of

Your great Presence;
Your divine love and strength.

Help me to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,

so that nothing may frighten or worry me.

For living close to You,
I shall see Your hand,

your purpose, and Your Will
will shine through all things.

In Your good and Holy Name I pray,
Amen.”

[Adapted prayer from St. Ignatius of Loyola]
