Prayer during times of anxiety and depression

Lord God. I find myself in a web of darkness.
Anxiety and depression have dulled my mind.
I cannot focus. I have no energy. I am tired but cannot sleep.
I am alone and doubt anyone knows of my despair.

I don’t know from where these demons come.
But they come and dampen my soul.
If hope is there, it is but a flicker far in the distance.

O God. Find me. I beg you to help me gather up my scattered self.

Lead me to a path where the darkness clears and
that flicker becomes a glow. Take me there.
