    Looking for conditioner :)
    I don't even know if anyone comes into this thread anymore. I want to thank Pebbles for starting this thread...it is truly a blessing.

    I just want to go back to being the person I used to be, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. I have lost so much in such a short amount of time, I was in school to be a doctor and somehow I allowed other things to convince me that I am nothing. (abusive relationship) Some days i really don't even feel like living anymore because of all the pain. I know i shouldnt be telling all my business but it really doesnt matter who knows anymore, its gotten that bad. I don't know what my purpose is in life anymore...some days I can't even get out of bed. If anyone is reading this please just say a prayer for me, I pray that anyone reading this is blessed in the almighty name of Jesus.

    Psalm 40

    1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
    he turned to me and heard my cry.
    2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
    out of the mud and mire;
    he set my feet on a rock
    and gave me a firm place to stand.

    3 He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
    Many will see and fear
    and put their trust in the LORD.

    Amen.

    First I'd like to say thacks to Pebbles for the post! It was very inspiring. I'm always looking thru the hair care forums, this is my first time in this one, but I will surely come back! Its filled with good stuff! :yep:


    OMG Belldandy I am going thru something VERY similar. As I read what u wrote all I could say is wow, this sounds like my life! I know its hard and you feel like your going thru it alone (I was feeling the same way until I came across your post). I had no idea that so many others are going thru the same trials. Stay strong girlie, this is just a test. God is with you and he will help you thru it! :yep:

    I have not been able to sleep until 3-4 am the past several months. I have not felt at peace, especially with things. Its gotten so bad I have had chest pain and migraine headaches. YHWH's been revealing to me His Character and what love truly is more and more. I didn't know what was wrong. I had been under spiritual attack. Then the sleepless nights came. I was suceeding in losing weight then this lack of sleep started interfering. I felt like I was gonna cry for no reason. I have been crying out to YHWH as to why I couldn't do my HOMEWORK! I realized I was constantly panicing. I was even slipping back to the old sinful me so I could cope. I said something needs to be done. I felt led to come here @ 2:38 am. And pray this prayer. Something did NOT want me to pray this prayer. I felt an over whelming sense of fear in the beginning. As I continued I felt the chest pain go away and that fear and depression to go away. I needed this more than I thought I did.

    Thank you Father God for leading me to this thread and this forum. It's amazing how You always meet my needs. I thank you for deliverance from depression and every other stronghold that steals my joy and has me stuck. I thank you my being able to control my thoughts, feelings and emotions Lord. Lord I thank you for your help in that area especially Lord. Lord I thank you for delivering all of us from the spirit of depression Lord so that we may live the lives that You created us to live. Lord I thank you for the blood of Jesus that makes me a conquerer over depression and every other stronghold. I thank you for healing from my head to my toes, Lord, from my inside to outside, Lord, from my hair to my heart Lord - I thank you for total and complete healing. I thank you for this in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Here is a link to a great teaching called "What's Been on Your Mind Lately" by Joyce Meyers. For those tuning to God for a depression and anxiety solution, this teaching should help. It is available for a donation of any amount (even just $1). https://shop.joycemeyer.org/estore/products/JMM/PID-D245AA.aspx

    Also this week's message on her TV broadcast has to do with Deliverance from a Deceived Mind and Thinking About What You are Thinking About. You can watch the programs for free online at http://www.joycemeyer.org/ourministries/broadcast/

    I find these teachngs to be uplifting and filled with behavioral changes we can make to control our thoughts and feelings.

    I thank God for renewing our minds today and all days so that we may control our thoughts and feelings. I also thank God and the OP for this post. Saying this prayer is definitely helping me.

    This has been a rough year for me. My best friend was murdered in a racist hate crime, gotten my heart broken twice one by a child hood crush,and other by a high school crush that I recently experienced, and I tell you its been very hard and painful. I have shared many tears and stayed up many nights not being able to sleep. I have been under alot of stress to the point of my hair shedding and thining around the edges,dropping weight,migrains,and not eating much as I should. My doctor have me taking pills for stress and my migrains,plus protien shakes to help with the weight gain. I just ask that you ladies pray for me,thanks so much.

    I pray for God's peace to overwhelm you and that you would have joy overflowing, in the name of Jesus. Sometimes God will bring us to our weakest point so that we would drop to our knees and call on Him. That's when He shows us that He is all we need. He is our strength, our joy, our peace, our hiding place. He is whatever we need Him to be. God bless you.

    I ask for pray against all the negative energy in my life and the lives of my love ones. I ask the Lord to protect my family, friends and myself. I feel like the enemy is trying to bring me down in so many ways and aspects of my life and I thank the Lord for protecting me. Everyday I feel like I am drowning in negativity and I am praying for the Lord to remove this feeling from me. The Lord has blessed me in so many ways and protected me from the enemy all my life. I know that I am only here because of HIS grace and mercy. And yet I still feel so much sadness in my life. I ask for everyone to pray for me and ask the Lord to remove this negative energy from my life.

    Humblebyhim, dadragonprincess, mschocolatediva, prtybrwnis, luthiengirl, belldandy I am praying for you.

    Dear Lord,

    Thanks for bringing me back to the board today. I pray especially for those named above. Lord Jesus grant them the freedom that they need. Remove all negative energy and forces and replace them with your light and love. Jesus, I ask You to move on their behalf right now. I pray that the blood that was shed by You be applied to every problem, every situation, every depression, anxiousness all panic and fear. Father you have said in Your word that we overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony. Help these to know that they are overcomers in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

    God Bless you, Believe Believe Believe


    I'm going to frequent this board more often. If anyone needs prayer send me a message. I'm here to pray with anyone needing prayer. This is something I've battled with. We have the victory in Jesus' name.

    I want to revive this thread for everyone that has experience or living with any type of anxiety or depression. Sometimes you might not recognize your anxiety or aware that you are depressed. The winter months are difficult periods for a lot of people but spring is here and the word of the Lord and the Holy Spirit endures.

    i have been living with and battling depression and anxiety for a long time. It is a battle to stay free, and I am currently thinking of enlisting the help of a Christian therapist. God Bless, keep and heal all of us who are struggling to get free and stay free.

    Ladies, I am suffering serious anxiety while I study. I am often unable to sleep but I'm hanging in there. I cannot take any medication because it would make me sleepy and I need to be awake for several hours a day studying. Also, I would hate to develop a dependency.

    I hope you are all doing ok...and I sure hope that this too, shall pass.

    Thanks Pebbles for starting this thread. I have been a member since 2007 and just stumbled across this today. Not my chance either. From the moment I read the opening line of the prayer, my faith has been renewed and an immense burden has been lifted. "Thank you JESUS"! I have tears in my eyes now as I type.....even the strong have week moments and in those moments the devil tries to still our hope, joy, and mind. I thank God today that I read this prayer! I have soo much to be thankful for and have allowed the devil to redirect my focus on what I have lost. All I can do is sing....

    ...when I think back over my life
    and I think things oo-ver,
    I can truly say, that I've been BLESSED!
    I've got a testimony!!!

    You ladies be blessed!

    someone shared this powerful prayer with me today, and I would like to share here I hope it's okay..


    This evening Heavenly Father, I call upon you, whom your word has described as a consuming fire to burn at the very root every spirit of depression, mind dullness, forgetfulness, mind blankness, confusion, incoherence, fear, suicide, abnormal thinking of death, worry, spirits of heaviness, sexual perverted thoughts, violence, unforgiveness and bitterness. Father I bind the spirits of laziness, procrastination, the lack of will power, might,courage and determination.

    Father in the name of your son Jesus Christ I pray that you rain down fire like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah upon every spirit that has been consistently attacking our minds particularly in the area of doubting your word, reading your word, and most of all not being able to focus on your word. I command the spirits of anxiety and panic attacks to die in the name of Jesus Christ. I pray especially for those that have received devastating news such as the loss of a love one, a broken marriage, divorce, an unwelcome Doctor's report and the spirit of grief, I command these spirits and the power of darkness that has been tormenting these people to die in the name of Jesus Christ. and to be cast in to the abyss.

    Father I attack the spirit of uncertainty with spiritual brute force which is your word that says IF YOU BE FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US! I now call upon the angels of the lord who has been given charge over us and to keep us in all our ways to go forth and to take back what the enemy has stolen from us mentally and spiritually. I command Satan, whom God has said sole purpose towards us is to kill steal and to destroy to return unto every reader of this prayer all that he has stolen in the name of Jesus Christ.

    Your word gives us the right, when it said that if the thief (Satan) be found he must restore seven fold what he has stolen, Proverbs 6:31. God I earnestly pray for that person reading this right now that's flowing in tears because you've heard their inward and outward cry concerning their mental state. You are indeed an on time God and one who answers the prayers of his people.

    Finally Father, we want to thank you in advance for soundness of mind, the ability to focus, concentrate, make sound decision and to possess a sense of freedom in our thoughts. Thank you for pure pleasant imagination, the ability to freely think positively. Thank you for giving us the power to relinquish our minds of perverted sexual immoral thoughts, negativity, evil imagination and thinking evil of others. We ask these things and believe they are done by faith in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

    Member and non-members of this group if you are tired of being tormented by the enemy I suggest you copy this prayer and repeat it at least three times a day. Remember we are in a battle with who have the advantage of seeing us but it is not common for us to see them. However prayer acts as a sword in the spirit especially prayers saturated with the word of God. I come in agreement with all of you that pray this prayer in Jesus name.

    I thank God for leading me to this thread...Every day has been an ongoing struggle for me. My anxiety has already cost me my job and now I feel like I'm losing myself. My negative thoughts and feelings are taking a toll on me. I'm thinking horrible things about myself and others that I know I don't mean but its a struggle to keep these thoughts out of my head. I miss the old me..the me that loved who I was, that loved others, that had compassion and I don't understand why everytime I say something positive, a negative thought would come up and its an ongoing cycle. I can't sleep at night, people who love me are beginning to notice my unhappiness even though I try to fake it. I just want to be free Jesus!

    I am so grateful. I will lift up the name of God in all that I do. I am not forgotten and I have victory!

    Ladies,

    Please pray that I will be good this week. I ran out of my bipolar meds and lost the prescription. It's been called to my doc from my pharmacy so I'm going to be at least 3 days without the meds in my system. Please pray that I will still be of sound mind and that Satan doesn't try to take advantage. Please pray that I will hold on to God's unchanging hand and that I remember his word says "he will never leave me nor forsake me".

    Thanks in advance, thy Lord's will be done.

    I pray that the Lord delivers and sets you from the sickness that you wont be a slave to it any longer that your mind and body every, cell, vessel, membrane, tissue, brain wave, every fiber of your being lines up in accordance to his word and will as His will is that you be in good health and prosper in Jesus name Amen.

    Used to be depressed when I was younger dealing with self-esteem issues and I still have to work on that...i sometimes cant take a compliment (my boo has pointed this out to me) But now that alot of my friends are in relationships, getting better jobs, or having kids I'm noticing that depression spirit lingering

    Last night prayed to rebuke it because i've come far from where I started and I try to keep up the confident front. I feel more comfortable saying this on here then I would ever tell anyone in person... I'm a lil sad and depressed with my life but I have an image to upkeep so having anymore anxiety attacks is not an option Just praying for a change and some more positivity in my life Thanks for letting me vent

    Thank you thank you God for this thread. I have been dealing with so much this past week. I'm sitting here crying right now, because I'm finally seeing how badly God has been fighting for me. Just...thank you.

    Msmchy There is comfort and safety in the shadow of his wings, Jesus is forever making intercession to the Father on your behalf cast your cares on him because he cares for you. He is giving you wisdom and strength to go through.

    I'm praying that you feel that comfort that only Abba can give also praying that you feel his presence because you are not alone, he promised never to leave or forsake you.
