This is a long request just so you can understand everything that is surrounding what's going on. I have suffered from depression for as long as I can remember and frankly it keeps me from enjoying my life. I have been saved since I was five but have a very rollercoaster life to say the least. Recently I have started my own furniture restyling business and things started out good but then our heat wave hit and as I am only able to work on the furniture outside it has come to a halt this threw me into a depression like none I have experienced for six weeks now I have been sleeping all day long. I do leave the house and somehow I manage to make it to church on Sundays (I think only because I work the coffee bar) and it has kept me from praying and well enjoying my life. I can't seem to get back on track and I know that I need some consistency. So I need prayer for strength, wisdom, joy and happiness. Also my daughter is getting married in November and I feel like I am already missing out on keep elements of her planning and events surrounding the wedding because my depression cripples me into denial.

Dear Eclectic Diva, I am so sorry you are struggling with depression. I can relate - I have been depressed at times as well. Do you have someone at church you can talk with? Is there a counselor in your area you talk too - or your doctor? Please get help as soon as possible so you can enjoy your life and your daughter's wedding.

Scripture: Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. -Psalms 42:11

Prayer: Lord of all Hope, You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Saviour, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas, to whom shall we look?

Lord, we live in a fallen state and our souls struggle against the world, the flesh and the devil. Despair can sometimes catch our heel, and we lose sight of the hope we have in You.

I lift up Eclectic Diva to You today, and I ask You to guard her hope. Deliver her Lord from discouragement and fear that can creep in and wear her down. Break in upon her mind today Lord and dislodge doubts, and troubling thoughts.

Give her fresh strength to praise and exalt Your name in the midst of difficulty, and birth yet another testimony of Your deliverance into her life. In Jesus name, amen.
