PRAYING FOR OTHERS HAS STOPPED MY DEPRESSION
Jesus Did It!
By: Sapna Raphael
I accepted Jesus Christ a few years back. However, I was far from living with much victory in my life. I lived in condemnation and always felt I was good at nothing.
Recently I lost my job about three months back, and since then I am at home. Initially I was very depressed, and did not know what to do. I was feeling rejected and lonely.
As days passed I began seeking God earnestly and praying to Him. I should admit that I was not particularly fond of reading the Bible. However, I would search the internet to find out how I could lead a victorious life and slowly my knowledge and faith in God's Word began to increase.
Though I have a good church and good believers around me, I did not feel like pouring out my problems to them. Then God in His mercy miraculously led me to a homeopathic hospital and there I met a believer; we started praying together for our needs. I started having a desire to pray for people and all the depression and loneliness left me.
I thank God that he has begun his good work in me. All glory to Him!
Update: October 14, 2007:
My testimony was posted on your website in August this year and because it is such a short testimony, since I did not go into the details, I was praying that it would be a blessing to all those who were reading it; particularly people battling with depression and just like Jesus Christ had multiplied the limited amount of fish and loaves for his hungry people, so would my small testimony reach all those who were seeking God.
Thanks to God, since the time I have been waiting upon him and seeking him, I could see that God has been working in me, transforming me into His glory each day. I come from a Hindu background. I was saved a few years back, and am married to a born again man who comes from a Catholic background. My parents and two sisters were not saved. Both my sisters have now given their lives to the Lord in a span of one month. One sister, named Kavita ,gave her life to Christ on Aug 29, 2007 and another sister, Kshama, gave her life to the Lord on Sep 30, 2007, and both are coming to church regularly. May God bless them in their walk with God. We have a wonderful faithful God who answers our earnest prayers. I thank God that he has shown favour to me and my family and I truly believe that very soon my parents will accept Christ as Lord. Wow! God is good all the time.
Thanks again, God bless this ministry.

Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with Him? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
