My husband has battled depression for years; is a musician and feels like a failure because his music has not taken him where he’d hoped it would. He is very gifted and talented, has made 20 plus cd’s, writes, sings, composes, produces, and plays multiple instruments, but living in Iowa makes it difficult to say the least. He struggles socially as well so it is challenging for him to market himself. Long story short, I have prayed for him for years, for God’s will for him including that he would accept circumstances if that is what God wants. I want him to be happy and need help lifting my husband up in prayer. I feel like Moses in need of assistants to hold my hands in the air until the battle is won. Whatever that winning outcome means for us. Thank you.janel.holadayPrayers: 1030Requests: 105

I’m sorry to hear what’s been going on. Is your husband a believer? I’m happy to pray for him but that would be my first prayer and concern.
Father, thank You for this wife lifting up her husband. I stand in the authority of Jesus Christ and say depression be gone. Leave this man in the Name of Jesus. You are no longer welcome- go- never return. Man be filled the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ heals you! I praise God for your gifts and talents with music! Glory to God! I pray you use them for His glory! Surrender your dreams to Him and let Him show you that His plans are better than your own- better for you. Daddy, let Lynn write back to me because I want to talk to her and will definitely pray for her. Victory!! We have it in You!! YES! Let Lynn’s husband stand on Truth and not be deceived into thinking he lacks any good thing. You can do ALL things! Living in Iowa is not a problem for You. No way. Give Lynn’s husband ears to hear You and surrender to You. Let him hand over all his hopes, dreams, cares and hurts to You and receive Your peace, joy and beauty. I want to know what kind of music he writes. Let me find out. I love You Daddy! You are SOOO good!! I rejoice in You today! This is the day You have made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it! Thank You! Let Lynn know that You will indeed make a way and bring them out of this situation. Encourage her. Fill her with Your Holy Spirit right now. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
Lynn, please write back. I really do want to know about your husband’s music and I’d be happy to be your friend. Shalom, JanelgsimoninPrayers: 2019Requests: 17

Amen to your prayer, Janel. Father, we lift us this man who is struggling with depression, with a less than stellar music career. Give him wisdom to know and see what is going on, what he needs to do, or not do, what changes that You want him to make. We pray blessings on his musical gifts and ask that You help him find a place to use them for Your glory. Depression be gone! If he needs to seek medical help, then let him do so.lynnsongmoorePrayers: 95Requests: 4

Yes Janel he is a believer, had a very difficult upbringing. He loves jazz music the most but has been in many bands over the years. We lead worship at our small country church and we loving singing together. He just is convinced he has wasted his life, that his abilities are a curse because it hasn’t gotten him anywhere no matter what he has tried. And being in his 50’s I think there are some midlife challenges going on too. Thanks so much for your prayers.janel.holadayPrayers: 1030Requests: 105

Oh so happy to hear he is a believer! And that you lead worship and enjoy singing together at your church. That’s great news!!
I’d say the enemy has him in some stinkin thinkin, but nothing God can’t get him out of. And in my opinion, mid-life crisis’ don’t have to happen. I refuse the thought altogether.
You be encouraged, Lynn. God loves you. He loves your husband. He is for you! His plans for you are good!! I don’t know what to say about unfulfilled hopes and dreams except that in my own life, I just give them all to God and trust Him with them. I refuse to grumble or complain because that’s just asking for trouble. I want to enjoy the adventure of life and live by faith because I know that pleases God and brings me peace, blessing and joy. I pray your husband will realize that.
Does He enjoy singing and making music for The Audience of One? I hope so. God sees. He hears. He is SO worthy!! More worthy than anyone or anything. I wonder if your husband wants recognition? Or what’s driving these feelings of not being successful or not making it in music? God could be sparing him from so much by not answering prayers in the way he’d like. I know He’s done that for me time and time again. Thank You Jesus!!! You kept me! You blessed me!!! I praise You!!! You know what is best for me. Left to myself, would not be a good thing.
I lift up this man to You again, Daddy. Let him thank You and praise You. Let him offer his music to You and trust that what You choose to do with it is best. I surely believe that. Give him and Lynn ears to hear from You about this situation. We are overcomes! We are more than conquerors! We lack NO good thing. Yes!! Thank You Lord!! Fill them both with Your Holy Spirit. The joy of the Lord is their strength. Depression be gone. The past is the part. You make all things new! Whoo hoo!!! I praise You for that!! Let this man walk in newness of life! Let him rejoice in You!! And enjoy living for You! Let Lynn share the praise reports! I pray all this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
The other day I thought how cool it’d be to write a DAB theme song. My son who’s 8!thought it’s beca good idea, too. It was so sweet to hear his little voice start singing a song from his heart. I told another DABer how it’d be really cool if DAB musicians and artists could get together and make music- kinda like Hillsong United. Ha ha!! God always gives me BIG dreams and I totally believe Him for each and every one of them. He can do ALL things!! He is able to do exceedingly more than we ask, think, or can even imagine. YES!! I love it!!! May He work in us what is pleasing to Him through Christ Jesus. That will truly satisfy us. That’s my prayer for you, for your husband, for myself and for everyone else. Have Your way in our lives, Lord Jesus. Be glorified in us. Nothing else is more important. Thank You Holy Spirit for teaching us and leading us into all truth. Thank You for helping us and comforting us- You are always with us. A-MAZING!!!! What You give to us, let us share with each other. We are members of one body. Glory to You Jesus!! I pray all this in Your Name. Amen.
Rest in Him, sister. And stay in touch. XoAngigail194Prayers: 197Requests: 39

Oh Father, amen. Thank you for the words of Janel, I’m always encouraged. Father the enemy is attacking your worshipers. Teach us God how to withstand the enemy. Teach us what are the lies. Let us learn as we listen daily to your word.
Thank you Jesus.
We love you
