Healing Depression

Mark 2, Then some men came, bringing to Jesus a paralyzed man, carried by four of them….. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven…..get up, take your mat and go home.” He got up, took his mat and walked.” When I pray with someone suffering from depression I often say to them, “I will believe for you.” Depression is a loss of hope and confidence that my life counts, feeling like a part of me has stopped living, has died. I may ask, “When did the depression begin and what was happening in your life?” I may say I” can help you” and lift off them any pressure to perform or qualify to be healed. Each part of us needs to be restored and healed, heart (spirit and will), mind (thoughts and feelings), body, social relationships. We may need to forgive ourselves (helps to heal shame–something is wrong with me and anger towards ourselves). I am thankful for people in my life who carry me to Jesus through intercession and believe for me when I am weak in faith.
