LIKE THE BODY, the mind can be sick or injured for a variety of reasons. The Bible addresses the topic of mental health by speaking much about a person’s emotions, mind, soul, and heart.

Below are scriptures for different mental health challenges. Meditate on them and confess them as true for you. Say them and pray them out loud. God says in His Word that you have authority over the devil. Resist the enemy with God’s Word. Satan knows he cannot hold in bondage a believer who exercises their authority over him in Christ.

Psalm 34:17 (NLT)

17 The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles.

Psalm 94:17–19 (NLT)

17 Unless the Lord had helped me, I would soon have settled in the silence of the grave.

18 I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me.

Heavenly Father, I come boldly to Your throne of grace in the Name of Jesus. I come to You as the One Who heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. I believe that You are the author of peace and that You are my Healer.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, that You came to destroy the works of the devil. I ask You to destroy every root of fear, anxiety, worry, confusion, depression, and mental infirmity in me.

I ask, Father, for Your Holy Spirit to work in me to bring me to sound mental and emotional health.

Thank You, Lord, for healing me and redeeming my life from destruction. And thank You for promising to keep me in perfect peace as my mind is stayed on You, because I trust in You. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.
