When you feel anger, negativity, fear or sadness, do you turn your heart to God? Many Christians are fearful of bringing negative emotions to the Lord because they feel they need to be perfect when addressing Him. They may believe that they cannot speak to God about feelings that steer them away from the Word. This cannot be further from the truth!
God wants you to come to Him during the darkest of times, no matter what negative emotions you feel or the sins you have committed. He loves you endlessly, and will lift you up during these hard times if you look toward Him. No one can suppress negative emotions and thoughts and God understands that! Take a moment to sit with God and ask Him for guidance. He will lead you toward positivity and grace.
If you are struggling to speak to God about your negative feelings, these prayers will help get you started.

I have been through so much and right now I am at my breaking point. I feel empty and alone. I’m so tired of being depressed, unhappy and hurting. I just want a peace of mind, love and contentment. Some happiness. Father I need a job so I can meet my financial obligations. Lord I also pray that you heal my broken relationship and bring M back to me like we were before. I am truly in love with him and want to spend the rest of my life with him.
So father I ask that you bring him to me and take away the pain and emptiness that I feel. Help me find a job and take away theverything stress and worrying. I don’t want to cry every day anymore. This I ask and pray in your sweet name jesus.
I love you Lord

Loving Father, I come before you with faith in your promise that whatever
I ask for in your name you will grant to me if it is for the good of my soul
and in accordance with your Divine Will.
I come trusting in your great love for me and believing
that only you know what is best for me.
I come to you now to ask that you enter my heart
and heal all my wounded emotions.
You know me better than I know myself.
Bring your healing love into every corner of my heart and release
all the buried negative emotions inside that have not been resolved
and continue to cause me pain and anguish.
Remove all my unhealed hurts and painful memories that
block the flow of your graces, robbing me of your peace, love and joy.
Heal all feeling of sadness, loneliness, fear and anxiety.
Heal all guilt, despair, feelings of betrayal and rejection.
Heal all feelings of anger, hatred, resentment and bitterness.
Bring your healing love to all my emotions that have caused me feelings
of hopelessness, discouragement, helplessness and despair.
Grant me the grace to forgive all those who caused these negative emotions
and likewise to be forgiven by those to whom I have done the same harm.
And then, dear Father, after I have been healed may I be a witness of your
healing power and bring glory, honor and praise to you.
This I pray in Jesus’ name through Mary and all the saints.
We give you praise, honor, and glory for you are God and there’s no one like you. You reign in the heavens and in the earth. You are sovereign! We know that we come short of your glory, but we thank you for your mercy and grace.
Father, we forgive all those who have intentionally and unintentionally hurt, violated, offended, and rejected us in any way. Help us, Lord, to not hold negative emotions in our hearts as a result of anything they have done. We, also ask that you forgive us for our sins and iniquities. Forgive us, God, if we have transgressed your commandments.
We thank you, Lord, for we are saved by grace. You see our faith and account it as righteousness. We are justified by the blood of Jesus under the new covenant, therefore we are no longer under the curse of the law, but we are blessed through faith. We are no longer bound by sin and death, but we are now under the law of the Spirit of life through Christ Jesus. Thank you for your gift of eternal life.
We decree and declare Romans 8. We will walk after the Spirit and not after this flesh. We will mind the things of the Spirit and not of this flesh. We speak death into every carnal thing that causes us to compromise our spirit man. We declare and decree that the Spirit of the living God will rule and reign through us in the earth. We will not be consumed and ruled by our emotions.
We crucify every deed of our flesh because we are new creatures in Christ, old things have passed away and behold all things have become new. We will walk in the newness of life, free of condemnation and shame. We will yield every member of our bodies to you Lord, for we were bought with a price. We ask you to prosper our souls so we can be in health.
Lord, you know the intents and motives of our hearts. We ask you establish and store your Word in our hearts that we will be healed and set free from any and all emotional bondage. Break up the fallow ground of our hearts, Lord, and let your Word be planted and deeply rooted in us. Give us a heart of flesh.
In the name of Jesus, we come against depression, rejection, oppression, wrath, rebellion, and idolatry (feel free to substitute your own). We curse every root and seed that has been planted in our hearts from these spirits and command any fruit that has been produced from these seeds to wither and die. We shut any and all gateways the enemy has used to gain access to our hearts. We forfeit every plan the enemy has tried to use to keep us bound. We are healed, delivered, and set free in Jesus’ name. Amen!
That concludes the series on emotional healing restores. Jesus already paid for our healing. By no means are we to allow the enemy to take our right to live a healed, set free life. Life happens and we find ourselves living below what God has intended. Declare your healing today and believe it is so because God said it is so.
