    Hello everyone,

    I need prayer badly right now. I'm struggling with some serious depression, enough for me to be on leave from work (my job is very stressful for me), and to boot, my house was broken into for the 2nd time in 5 months. It's hard to feel safe. My wife and I also need prayer for our marriage.

    Precious heavenly Father,
    You know the needs of StefanM and those in his home. Touch his mind and his emotion and bring these into balance. Help him to have confidence in your strength and increase his faith. Part the confusions which oppress his spirit and help him open only to you and be filled with your presence, and give him strength with which to praise you, eyes to see your goodness, ears receptive to the words which are cheerful, encouraging and healing. Touch his heart and fill him with praise. Set a wall of protection around his home and hold back the oppressor and break through the cloud of depression and help him to be built up in you so that he can do spiritual warfare. Help him to trust you both in his weakness.... in which we all have need .....and give him confidence in you and make build up a bold confidence and assurance which helps him to rest and have peace in your arms and comfort upon your breast and trust that every thing in the present and in the future is in your hands: and if he holds fast to you and stands steadfast in faith.... there is nothing in the circumstances of his life that you can't change or work through to bring your goodness to him and work everything for his good. Make real those words 'I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.' and 'all things work for the good of those in Christ Jesus who are called according to his purpose'. Lord, you know the purpose to which his life is called: Help him commit fully to you and cast all his cares upon you for you care for him. Keep him and his family and his home safe from criminal violation and bring to capture and to justice the ones who have brought real terror to their home. Keep him aware of your presence and strengthen his heart to praise you. Help him to find the truth that you inhabit praise and when he praises you, you set the enemy to flee. Comfort and sustain him through these times.... and give him patience to wait upon you and have faith in you as he rests in your strength and finds peace and perfection in your timing and in those things committed to your care. In Jesus name, amen.

    Been there, done that. I'll be praying for you, my brother. Please, if you have not already done so, seek professional help. Your doctor might be able to prescribe something to help.:praying:

    I've already sought professional help, and I'm currently getting assistance for it.

    It's just hard. I don't feel like I can go back to work.

    Maybe you already know this but proper sleep, diet, and exercise can go a long way to help with this.

    Hello everyone,

    Thanks for your prayers. Due to health concerns, I decided to resign from my position. I gave notice, but my employer decided to make it immediate. As of today, I am unemployed. Please pray that God opens a door to a less stressful job that will not adversely affect my health.

    Stefan

    Please pray for me again. I am having some serious side-effects from my medication, but I am unable to reach my doctor because of the snow here.
