Severe Anxiety and Depression

by Rachael
(Louisville)

I am in the darkest place of my life right now. I really don't want to live anymore. I feel worthless. I have no friends and a small poor needy family that do the best they can to support and lift me up, but I can't break free from this. I have had a very traumatic life and the most recent event caused me to have a nervous breakdown. This is embarrassing to me and shameful. I have always been a Christian and loved the Lord so much and pray all the time. I am seeking psychiatric treatment and I am taking my meds, but everyday I wake up with severe panic attacks. I have lived with this agony for about 3 weeks now after being in pain for nearly a year with other physical ailments that required surgery that will prevent me from ever having children. I am not sure how much I can take. I feel like I am being tortured by my own body. I pray and try not to let my mind race and try the best I can to trust "that this too shall pass," but the physical pain of the anxiety is so severe I really wish the Lord would take me. I have always thought of myself as a strong person and have leaned on the Lord to get me through some very devestating times in my life, but this...this is the worst. I am trying everything I know to seek help, but I fear that I may do something to end it all if the Lord doesn't help me soon. I am truly suffering. Thank you for your time, thoughts and prayers.

Do not allow the enemy to crush your spirit.
by: Valarie Phill

Rachael,please do not allow the enemy to crush your spirit. You are God's property and He loves you dearly.Take your God at His word and stand on His promises. Bind this strongman in your life and resist Him and he would flee from you. god has given you the authority to squeeze his head and to tread upon him.God says in His word that you are fearfully and wonderfully made.He also said that he has not given you a spirit of fear but a spirit of power and of love and of a sound mind.Your mind is sound and believe that it is.Do not let the critical voice inside you rule the positive voice that is telling you that you are more than a conqueror because you are. Cancer was literally eating up everything within me and I sought my God and he heard me and delivered me from all of my fears.It is now thirty years that our God performed a miracle in my life and today He can perform one in yours too.You are special to God. It is time to take the devil by storm and aggressively disarm him/ He is no match for God nor is he any match for those who pray without ceasing.Your God is able to do more than you could ever imagine. Dispel fear today and pick up your faith.Your God has given you weapons that are not carnal but mighty to the pulling down of strongholds.Be strong and of good courage for your God can turn all this around if you would only believe.

Abba Father,
In the name of your Son I come to you this day.Wash me thoroughly in His blood and cleanse me from all unrighteousness as I seek to stand in the gap for Rachael.Father, this is your daughter crying out from the depths of her heart for you to have mercy on her.Abba, Your Son was wounded for her transgressions,He was bruised for her inquities and the chastisement of her peace was upon Him and this day I declare that by His stripes she is healed and delivered.Lord, bless her indeed. Do something big in her life that she will know that it is You. Lord,increase her influence.Lord, increase her affluence. Father, increase her opportunities.Father, allow her to feel Your presence once more and order her steps in Your Word that she would be able once more to see the salvation of You,Lord.Help her to realize that you will lift a standard for her up against him. Lord,restore her hope in You and let your joy be her strength today and in the days ahead.Soothe her aching heart and lift her up.Bless her family also.I pronounce blessings into their lives as well. May their bread baskets overflow.Father, send them financial breakthroughs and may they see Your Hand at work in their lives.Let them see the importance of praise in their lives as they lift up Holy hands in praise to You. Jehovah Jireh,I bless Your name and I know You will do it again just for Your daughter Rachael today.I exalt You and I give You thanks and praise for everything that You are about to do in this life and I ask it in no other name but the name of Your Son, Jesus.Amen.
