When you feel discouraged, or even depressed, it’s easy to feel hopeless. Life can be challenging: for instance, a loved one dies, sickness remains, your job seems futile, and overall nothing seems to change.
Are you in a place of despair? Share this prayer with Jesus, and let Him come and help you.
I need your help. I feel discouraged and I want to give up. I need to encounter your love and your purpose for my life. Fill me with your hope, and give me your direction. In my weakness, ground me in your strength. Show me your tender care, provide me with your ongoing peace, and help me to steadily trust in you.
Where I have sinned against you, please forgive me, and lead me to everlasting life. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Amen.
