Praying When You’re Depressed
“I alone am left, and they are looking for me to take my life” I Kings 19:14
We can be encouraged to learn that some of the greatest leaders of faith experienced seasons of depression. Elijah was arguably one of the boldest and most devoted prophets in the Old Testament. He knew what it was like to see God do extraordinary miracles. He tasted the thrill of victory, but he also drank from the cup of despair. Sound familiar? Have you had those seasons of hopelessness when you felt all alone and felt that everything was going downhill in your life? Then take heart and keep on praying. Just like God had more assignments for a depressed prophet, He has more work for you to do. Will you trust God to write a new chapter in your life?
