Unmedicated vs. Medicated
Rev. Courtney Clayton Jenkins
Lord, we are struggling with anxiety because we are trying to take the edge off and begging for healing in the wrong places. Instead, some of us are self-medicating in habits that have grown to excess.
Open our eyes and illumine our hearts to understand where we have begged for self-medication and attempted to numb the pain ourselves. God, what our souls truly thirst for is complete deliverance and freedom.
Rather than being enveloped in shame, we now realize that the reason we are struggling with anxiety is for You to get the glory. So, we pray for wisdom about Your divine prescription whether it come in the form of medication, or spiritual and emotional healing of the toxic habits in our lives.
Holy Spirit, help us to be self-aware so that we might get delivered from ourselves. Dim the noise and anxiety that has become louder than our faith. Help us to surrender to You God and trust You completely for our healing.
In the name of Jesus, we pray, amen.
