A Prayer Against Sadness
Peaceful, Loving Father, I humbly ask that you heal this ache in my heart, Oh Lord. Allow me to find that joy that I once knew. The sadness of my heart consumes me but I will not give in, for I am stronger than the mind games the devil tries to play on me.

Even though I am hurt and the pain lingers on each day, I will not give up, for the battle is already won. This sadness sickens my soul. These tears that hit my pillow at night longs to see happiness once more and I pray that You will open up a way for me.

I need You, Lord, now more than ever. This sadness in my heart craves to find that wonderful joy only You can give and that peace that passes all understanding. My heart cries out to Thee, give me strength, Oh gentle Saviour. In Jesus’ name, love, joy, peace and happiness will follow me wherever I go and this sadness within me will be destroyed, Amen and Amen!
