Church Announcement: I Don't Need To Pray About It I Need To Go To Therapy!


Reader, just because one may experience depression and/or anxiety in their life, doesn’t have a direct correlation with their prayer life or spiritual life if they identify as a religious person. It doesn’t mean they aren’t trying hard enough to be rid of their personal pains. It doesn’t mean that they love God any less. I could fill a library with my thoughts on this topic! "Mental health issues are alive and well in the black community." -- regardless of whether we choose to acknowledge them or not.

 I don’t need to “pray about it,” I need to go to therapy

  1. I had to seek therapy for issues in my life and I was all the better for it. At one point I had to take Paxil because of the issues we have seen with police misconduct. I had become so afraid of cops that my therapist put me on meds since I had post-traumatic stress syndrome. I was fearful when a cop car passed by me. Thank God I am free. God gave individuals the talents and gifts to be therapists for a reason. It is truly nothing to be ashamed about.

  2. You better pray to ask God to send you to the right therapist. LORD knows the counsel of many men are not for many people.

  3. I actually agree with you. The therapist I saw never disrespected my faith and according to Proverbs, there is safety in a multitude of counselors.

    1. I mean...we can't get away from our Creator, no matter how skilled men may be..."in all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths".

    2. And God has given many in His body the “gift of exhortation” Romans 12:6-8
      “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.”

      Believers with the gift of exortation make great counselors. They have an uncanty way of helping people “spiritually” and giving hope by sharing a Biblical perspective of the situation and reminding people of God’s power, love, and faithfulness. Not only this gift, but other gifts as well.

      Problem is the church hardly ever mentions gifts as such, only to focus on the “big” gifts like prophecy and apostle and pastors.
