Praying For The Suicidal Or Depressed

Praying For The Suicidal Or Depressed


Dear Father,

I come before You on behalf of those precious ones that may be thinking about suicide for whatever reason. I pray for a hedge of protection around each one. May You be a wall of fire around them and set Your angels all around them – You are their hiding place. I ask that You shield them from the voice of the enemy and let them hear Only Your voice.

Protect them from negative words and actions from others that may be in some way encouraging them to kill themselves. Rescue and deliver each one, and from those whose mouths speak deceit and evil. Deliver them from corrupt and depraved people.

I bind their minds to the mind of Christ and their wills to Your will. I bind them to the finished work of the cross – healing, soundness and wholeness of their minds, bodies, souls and spirits. Fill each of these people with peace and hope and with the spirit of calm and a well-balanced mind. Remove all fret and anxiety from each of them.

For those that are being intimated and bullied, I ask that You show them in a powerful way that they are not inferior – that they are Your workmanship and created in Your image. Cause the people that may be intimating and bulling them to stop.

For those that are depressed, I ask that You give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.

May each one of these people refute arguments and theories and reasoning and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the true knowledge of God. May they be transformed by the renewing of their mind. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may Your thoughts fill every part of their minds and may they meditate on them day and night.

Cause them to cast their burdens on You for You will sustain them. In the name of Jesus, may they withstand the enemy – may they be rooted in You, established, strong, immovable and determined to follow Your voice. Fill the vacant places within each of them with Your Word, Holy Spirit, Your love and Your wisdom.

I ask that You be with them in times of trouble, sickness, loneliness and discouragement and that You satisfy them with long life and show them Your salvation.

In Jesus’ name, Amen

"Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them." Luke 12:37 NKJV When Jesus returns I desire to be found faithful. More than anything in the world I long to hear the voice of the Lord say, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
