Please pray for me. I suffer from severe depression and it is really bad right now. I have lived with this illness for 40 years. only my belief in Jesus and that I will get to go to Heaven when I die has kept me from ending my life. I have had to go through this over and over. always praying for God to heal me. But he dosn't and it happens again. all I want to do is sleep and not wake up. I have just slept for 2 days. which I have done many different times. my life has totally ruined by depression. I even ask God sometimes to just take the depression away for awhile if you won't heal me. which I totally believe it is possible for God to do. I think sometimes that even people with cancer get healed or die. But I have to do this over and over until I die. I don't really know how much God expects me to take. I have made it this long. I think I will hold out until the end. But it is one of the worst ways to have to live. I always think about what my life would have been like if I didn't have the depression. I know in my Heart that God Loves me. but I don't know why he would let me suffer like this for so long. Please pray for me everyday you can. it is the only thing that helps.
Glad to pray for you Terry. God wants more from you than to die and sleep forever. Find out what God wants you to do, and you will find joy in doing it, joy enough to want to live for Christ.
