9.7 Breaking Free from Despair
Show Notes

Do you ever feel desperate? Depressed?

A few weeks ago, I reached this point of desperation saying, "God, is this area of my life ever going to change? Am I ever going to see growth and maturity?" 

I've been praying about this for years, and maybe there's an area in your life where you feel that despair as well? 

If so, today's prayer is for you.

This fall on the Prayers of REST Podcast we are getting honest with God about our temptations and struggles so that, by the power of the Holy Spirit at work within us, we can break free from the spiritual strongholds in our lives. Join us each week as we:

R - Recite God's Goodness
E - Express Your Neediness
S - Seek His Stillness
T - Trust His Faithfulness

If we want to break free from the sins and temptations holding us captive, it is so important that we pray proactively and repeatedly. That’s why my team created a special resource just for you!

If you want to continue bringing your struggles to Jesus throughout the week—even if you don't have your earbuds on hand!—get the Handling Hard Emotions Scripture Cards!
