I ask that you would bring healing to America.
Father, depression, stress, and anxiety plagues this nation.
We have been taught to believe that our fates rest solely on our own shoulders instead of relying on you to provide.
We have taken this weight upon ourselves instead of resting in you, and, Lord, the result is horrid.
With so many falling into depression and even suicide, it would seem as if there is no hope.
Lord, bring us back to the rest you meant for us to feel.
Bring peace back into our hearts.
Remind us that you alone can save and that not even a sparrow falls to the ground without your notice.
Help us feel comfort in those words, knowing that you will orchestrate all things for our good and your glory.
Bring us to rest.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
