How to Overcome Despair and Hopelessness Through a Prayer

The Bible says, "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will" (Romans 12:1-2)."

We are living in a world that is filled with hopelessness and despair. If we were to admit it, there is no one of us who has not had the felt despair when the enemy strike hard at us. We live in this world and every day is a struggle and fighting the devil is on a daily basis. We battle against the power of darkness as the enemy strikes hard with despair and hopelessness.

Even when we are in the body of Christ, the devil will still scream in our ears that we are not good enough and that God's will is not for us. It is truly hard to live in victory when we believe the lies of our enemies.

We need  to take charge and avoid the negative thinking. We have the power to cast down all our hopelessness and despair. We do not need to captive the negative thinking that lead us to despair. We can do this by renewing our mind in God's words and by praying.

Reading the Bible and praying for God's guidance as well as entrusting our lives in His Will is the best thing that we can do aside from fighting the negative thoughts.
