Prayer Against Depression


O Christ Jesus, when all is darkness we feel our weakness and helplessness, and give us the sense of your presence, Your love, and your strength. Help us to have perfect trust in your protecting love and strengthening power, so that nothing frighten or worry us, for, living close to you, we shall see your hand, your purpose, your will through all things.

By Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Every time I read this prayer it reminds me my past life when my daughter encounter emotional problem or depression 7 yrs ago after my separation to her father.  We both suffering emotional problem that time specially to my daughter, untill the time that I decided to bring my daughter to  psychology for therapy.  I want to say thank you also to my dear physician  who patiently understand my daughter’s situation and take care of her for almost 2 years.

Now I am happy to say that my daughter is fully recovered and back to normal life. I praise God his really good to me and my daughter.

I’ve learn a lot to my past life. But past is past and forget the past and we need to move on to the next chapter of our life. Do not give up beside face the problem and always ask Guidance to our Lord Jesus Christ.

WOMAN


Her character as a wife:

An excellent wife, who can find?

For her worth is far above jewels.

 her heart of her husband trusts in her,

And he will have no lack of gain.

 She does him good and not evil

All the days of her life

 

Her devotion as a Homemaker:

She looks for wool and flax

And works with her hands in delight.

 She is like merchant ships;

She brings her food from afar.

 She rises also while it is still night

And gives food to her household

 And portions to her maidens.

She considers a field and buys it;

From her earnings she plants a vineyard.

 She girds herself with strength

And makes her arms strong.

She senses that her gain is good;

Her lamp does not go out at night.

 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,

And her hands grasp the spindle.

 

 Her Generosity as a Neighbor:

She extends her hand to the poor,

And she stretches out her hands to the needy.

 

Her Devotion as a Homemaker:

She is not afraid of the snow for her household,

For all her household are clothed with scarlet.

She makes coverings for herself;

Her clothing is fine linen and purple.

 

Her husband is known in the gates,

When he sits among the elders of the land.

She makes linen garments and sells them,

And supplies belts to the tradesmen.

 

Her Influence as a Teacher: 

Strength and dignity are her clothing,

And she smiles at the future.

She opens her mouth in wisdom,

And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

 

Her Effectiveness as a Mother:

She looks well to the ways of her household,

And does not eat the bread of idleness.

 

Her children rise up and bless her;

Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:

Many daughters have done nobly,

But you excel them all.”

 

Her Excellence as a Person:

Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,

But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.

Give her the product of her hands,

And let her works praise her in the gates.

 The Proverbs 31 Woman
