Special Needs Prayers
|The rise in depression
and suicide rates has become almost pandemic and can, I think, be linked
to the drop in a belief in God and a prayer life. Depression and other
forms of psychiatric illnesses have always been with us, some caused by
a definite physiological condition, but most caused by what I think of
as a 'lonliness of the soul'. As God's creation we are all born with a
special link to Him, the soul. Yet it is so fragile and it is only we ourselves
that can keep that link or pathway open. God is there for us always and
forever, with a love that is unimaginable. It is we who distance ourselves
by turning our back on Him, denying His existance, wandering around in
despair and living our lives without trust in Him and under a 'black cloud'.
He really is the only answer to life and all it throws at us. We worry
and frazzle over things when we should be handing these worries all over
Here's a lovely little prayer for those who suffer from depression, I hope it helps, I know it will if you will set aside just a minute a day to say it.
Dear Jesus, I walk in the valley of darkness for I suffer trom depression. I feel unloved. rejectedd, useless to myself and useless to others. I feel lost in a world I no longer understand. At times, I want to sleep and never wake up again. Lord, I believe that Your love is a transforming love. Jesus, Son of Duvid have pity on me. Out of the depths, I cry to you.
Lord, even though 1 feel nothing, I still praise you for the wonder of my being. You have formed me in my mother's womb and watched over me to this moment. I am precious in Your eyes and You love me. On the Cross, you shed your blood for me. You have carved me in the palm of Your hand. For all this I give you thanks and praise.
May your Precious Blood give new life to me and to all those who suffer as I do. Take each one of us and hug us to your sacred and loving heart. Through your glorious wounds may we be healed.
Dear Jesus, when you fed Ihe crowd in the desert, you wished to gather up the fragments, lest anything be lost. As I wander through a desert and darkness of my own, I ask you to gather up the fragments of this shattered being, lest anything be lost. Through the prophet, Joel, Yo prolnise to restore the years that the locusts have eaten. I ask you, lay Your hands gently on my weary head and restore me. Let your face shine upon me and give me back the peace and the joy that has been lost.
