The Holiday Season produces a lot of emotions for many. May you know that I am praying for you.
Lord, I pray for all those that are grieving this holiday season. May You comfort them as You and You alone can do. Lord may You give them peace and strength during this time. The spirit of heaviness and depression will not overtake them, Your presence Lord will uphold them. Lord, I lift up those who are dealing with loneliness, may they know that You Heavenly Father will never leave them nor forsake them and You are with them always. I pray for those who are experiencing extreme sadness and depression. Lord keep their minds in perfect peace. I come against every depress and sad spirit that will try to bind them and keep them low. No weapon formed against them shall prosper. They shall Live and Not Die. I decree and declare Hope be restored to them now. I lift up those who are feeling discouraged because of what they may lack this season, Lord encouraged them and let them feel your love and realize You are a very present help in the time of trouble. I pray that You will reveal Yourself to them in such a greater and intimate way. I pray Lord that You meet them right where they are, surround them with Your love, peace, and strength. In Jesus Name.
