A prayer for when life is desperate
(for those in despair or depression)
I feel lost.
Find me Lord, pull back the wreckage of my life so that I can breathe again.
I feel abandoned.
Embrace me Lord, cover my wounds with your healing love so that I might stand restored.
I feel trapped.
Cut the chains Lord, release me from the weights that drag me down. Come bring your freedom and hope.
I am desperate, yet I seek you God, the one who conquered the darkness,
The one who rose from death, the one who said, “follow me”!
I will follow the brightness of your love.
Even when it is all but a distant glimmer
I will fix my eyes open it.
I feel lost, yet I am found in that light.
I feel abandoned, yet you are besides me.
I feel trapped, yet you call me to freedom.
I feel desperate, yet you lead me to peace.
I draw near to you Lord Jesus.
