Heavenly Father,  

Lord, I come to you praying in Your Son Jesus Christ's name, confessing that I feel enveloped in darkness and despair. I feel as though nothing is working out for me and that nothing is going to work out for me.  Lord, who do I turn to? Where do I go from here?  If I could give up, I would, but I have nothing to give up to.  So in this dark hour, Lord I cry out to You for help and I ask you to help me to hold fast to Your unchanging hand.  I'm trying with all I can to hold on.   

No matter how hard this attack is coming against me. I won't let go of the hope that I have in You because You promise to never leave me.  You promised never to forsake me, and Lord, You are my only hope.  I surrender myself completely to Your will.  Oh Father, fill me with Your goodness, faithfulness and Your love and help me to stand..  

Help me to hold fast in this midnight hour, and to realize that even through I can't see you doesn't mean that You aren't already at work in my life.  I am clinging with all that I am to Your promise Word:  We know all things work together for good  to those who love God,
to those who are called according to His purpose (Rom. 8:28)

Jesus, I will stand with confidence saying that I know You are working everything out for my good.  I refuse in the name of Jesus to be downcast, I refuse to be weary.  I will trust in Your Holy Word, knowing that You are working things out for me.  I won't wait until the fulfillment of Your promises come to pass to praise you.  I am going to praise you in advance for Your goodness and Your mercy.   

All that I am, all my hope rests solidly in You and not in the problems or emotions that I face.  For I know that Greater is He who is in me than he that is in this world.  You have redeemed my life from the pit and crowned me with love and compassion.   

Lord when I put my hope in You, I can't help but draw closer to You; I can't help but grow deeper in maturity; I can't help but sense a greater outpouring of Your Holy Spirit in my life.  Oh Lord, open my eyes to the eternal lessons You are teaching me.  Jesus, please open my eyes so that I can see visions of You standing in the midst of my despair.

Lord, I refuse to live in denial of what I face, and I will walk through this journey  by faith and not by sight.  Lift me out of the muck and mire and into the heavenly places and clothe me with garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.  Dispel the clouds of discouragement that encompass me.  Loose me from the spirit of discouragement and depression that is trying overshadow my soul, and bind me to the fruit of the spirit so that my weeping will be turned into joy. 

Oh Father, I thank You for coming near to me this day.  I thank You and praise Your holy name for the work you have done in me this day.  I give You all the honor and glory for who You are.  I shout hallelujah to the precious name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. 

In Jesus Name I pray,
