Fighting the Winter Blues: Prayers for Dark Days

The dark winter months are challenging for us, especially for those of us with seasonal depression.

We want the sun to shine so we can absorb its energy and feel better about life. The winter months are a sober reminder that life often has seasons of darkness, of depression, anxiety, and frustration.

God is not immune to these realities and in several poignant Psalms he gives us a voice with which to lament and words to speak in those dark moments. The Holy Spirit does not stand far from us in our darkness, but with us and in us, to help and to guide us.

Please join us for this series on Prayers for Dark Days as we harvest insights from the Psalms not only for understanding the darkness, but for locating glimmers of Christ's light and love for us.
