8 Bible verses on the burden of Depression:

Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.”

Dear Lord, 
I bring you my burdens and you know my situation. You know I can't make it without you. Comfort my heart, give me strength, and help me carry on. I pray for encouragement so that I may not tire of waiting or doing good. Please equip me with patience. I pray against depression and oppression. I believe there is no storm that you cannot carry me through. There is no bridge that you won't help me cross. There is no heartache that you won't help me let go off. There is no depression that can eat me because you are mightier than any of this. Lord please help me to leave everything behind, my past, my hurt, my pain, all the wounds and scars and let me embrace this day and everyday confidently knowing that You will take care of me. I love you Jesus. Thank you for being gentle and patient with me. I pray all this in Jesus name, Amen.
