Powerful Prayer for Depression & someone feeling Sad

The fight against depression is not a physical one.

That’s because true happiness only comes from God.

He can turn around your situation and take away sadness from your life.

And that’s if you believe.

God is able to save the faithful when they call upon his name through prayer.

So, if you are depressed, We can triumph over unhappiness with prayers.

I have been there in the past, just after I lost my mum.

With so many rumors back then, it was truly difficult to find happiness.

But somehow, God intervened.

Likewise, God is willing and able to return joy and happiness to the darkest parts of your heart.

He said in his word,

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalm 37:4

So, today, we will pray over any unhappiness and depression in your life.

We will seek God’s mercy to always watch over your daily affairs.

I have put together prayers for depression and unhappiness to strengthen you.
