5 Most Powerful Prayers for Overcoming Depression
Depression figures have gone up by leaps and bounds, especially after the global pandemic. Human beings are currently going through some of the gloomiest times. People worldwide are struggling as their friends and families are battling the deadly virus, political unrest, an increase in unemployment, and homeschooling.
However, if you feel down and depressed, you must remember that you are not the only person to experience such emotions. Do not hesitate to reach out to your family members, friend circles, and your church.
It is interesting to note that depression is not always easy to understand as it affects different people differently. There is a possibility that you cannot function properly, feel numb, or leading life with heaviness on your shoulders. However, prayers for depression have a magical power to lift your spirits. The following are some of the most powerful prayers to overcome your depression:
