The Cures to Depression and Anxiety (Part 2 of 2)

This is a continuation of my previous post: The Cures to Depression and Anxiety (Part 1 of 2).

The Second Cure: The Word of God

The second practical salvation arrived when that sister read with me Psalm 90 through Psalm 93. Yes, over the phone. We read, declared, prayed over every verse with our whole being. We were vocal, we were bold, we mixed our speaking with faith, we cried out, we pleaded, we praised, we thanked, we called on His Name, we Amen-ed His desires.


Here are some of the verses we read. Please feel free to read them aloud, with your whole being, as well!

"O Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations."

"Teach us then to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom."

"Satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness that we may give a ringing shout and rejoice all our days."

"And let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us;..."

"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty."

"I say of Jehovah, My refuge and My fortress, My God in whom I trust!"

"It is good to give thanks to Jehovah and to sing psalms to Your name, O Most High."

"To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning and Your faithfulness in the nights."

"For You have made me rejoice, O Jehovah, because of what You have done; Because of the works of Your hands I will shout for joy."

"But You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with fresh oil."

"Planted in the house of Jehovah, they will flourish in the courts of our God."

"They will still bring forth fruit in old age; they will be full of sap and green."

"To declare that Jehovah is upright; He is my rock and there is no unrighteousness in Him."

"JEHOVAH REIGNS"

After this enjoyable reading, I can testify with all my heart that, indeed, my being was fully restored, enlightened, re-calibrated, comforted, saved, revived, refreshed, energized, satisfied, infused with faith, made happy, and made alive

End of story. I'm numbering my days. More experiences to come.

    I love this! Open your mouth wide and I will fill it- I've found this to be so true. I think a bad habit with many Christians is viewing their prayer as "quiet time." Sure there are times to muse, but there are equally as many if not more times to cry out.
