Prayer for healing from depression and medication dependency
(Minneapolis, MN, USA)
My prayer is that The Lord would heal me completely of depression and anxiety, and restore my brain to the way it was before I ever took medication. I have struggled with depression most of my life. I started taking antidepressant medication in 1993, and was never able to get off completely, but I am trying to do that now. I am suffering from a long, drawn-out withdrawal as my body and brain adjusts to less medication. I also have no steady income right now and am stuck at "home" right now. It is very hard to concentrate and focus, which scares me, because I have to interview and find work and be able to perform.
Father, I pray in the name of your Son, Jesus, that you deliver me from the bondage of depression and any dependence on medication to bandage over the underlying problems that need to be dealt with, so that complete healing may occur. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
