I like how Marianne Williamson views depression. Depressed people are society’s bellwether. Like the canary in the coal mine. They tell us that something is wrong. We need to support them. See the link to Marie TV interview with her below-
This is a powerful prayer that she wrote:
Dear God, I surrender to you the pain that is in my heart. I give to you my failure, my shame, my loss, my devastation. I know that in you, dear God, all darkness is turned to Light. Pour forth your Spirit upon my mind and help me to forgive my past. Make my life begin again. Restore my Soul and bring me Peace. Comfort me in this painful hour that I might see again my innocence and good. I have fallen, dear God, and I feel I cannot rise. Please lift me up and give me strength. Set my feet upon the path to peace and help me not to stray again. I pray for forgiveness. I’m crushed by my failure. Please show me who I am to you that self hate shall not defeat me. Help me remember and reclaim my good. Help me become who you would have me be and live the life you would have me live that my tears shall be no more. Amen.
