In today’s world and with everything happening around mental health issues are more common that we would like to admit.
The truth is that Social Media also doesn’t help. We’d like to offer you a way to alleviate any issues you may be having by using Biblical Principles.
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Prayer for mental health, emotional trauma and depression
Scriptures: Isaiah 41:10, Psalm 118:5, Isaiah 40:28-31, Psalm 118:24, Psalm 23:3, Philippians 4:8, 2 Timothy 1:7, 1 Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:13, Romans 15:13, 1 John 3:1, 1 John 4:16, Jeremiah 29:11, Psalm 109:26 , 1 Corinthians 13:13, Philippians 1:6, Hebrews 13:5
Lord, I come before You today girding my waist with the Belt of Truth, I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness, on my feet, I step into the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, and I take up the Shield of Faith to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one. I’m putting on the Helmet of Salvation to protect my mind, my eyes, my ears, my nose, and my mouth from any and all infiltration of the enemy. I pick up the Sword of the Spirit, which is Your word that tells me, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” In my distress, I called to the LORD, and He answered and set me free. Lord, thank you from setting me free from mental oppression, from depression, from all thoughts that are not from me. Give me the mind of Christ. Replace the thoughts I have now with Your thoughts of me. This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. God restores my soul.
Today whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—these are the things I will think about. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever. I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. Help me, LORD, my God; save me according to your unfailing love. I will cast all my anxiety on Him because He cares for me. I will take God’s yoke upon me because His yoke is light, and I will relieve myself of the burdens that I am carrying today by giving them to God. He alone is God and not I. I declare a divine exchange will happen today in my life. I know the God of hope fills me with all joy and peace as I trust in Him so that I may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
See what great love the Father has lavished on me, that I should be called a child of God! And that is what I am! The reason the world does not know me is that it did not know Him. And so, I know and rely on the love God has for me. God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God, and God in them. You came to give me life and life more abundantly, so today I choose this abundant life. For I know the plans You have for me—plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me hope and a future. I look forward to these magnificent plans. I choose to think thoughts of love today, thoughts that are filled with faith, thoughts that are hopeful. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the Earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of His understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. I choose to put my trust in Your unfailing love, God. You will never leave me nor forsake me.
Today, cover my mind under the blood of Jesus and allow me to see myself as You see me, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

You should consult with your doctor before stopping your medications. And I believe God will also guide and lead you to making the right decision when it needs to be made.
