Bible Verses to Pray on Depression

On this page there are many wonderful scriptures on the theme of "Depression" worded as short "prayers". It is good to confess scripture, but it can be transforming when the scripture is a prayer of thanks to God. God has already accomplished all that we need to live for Him, we just need to believe that and "proclaim" it. This is how we align our thinking to God's Word.

All scripture references are taken from the NKJV unless otherwise stated.

So the ransomed of the Lord shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness; Sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Isaiah 51:11(NKJV)
