The fear that comes from Depression and Anxiety can be overcome.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

You can have a person pray for you, if you have fear and the spirit of fear will go. However, when this spirit comes back to ‘check you out’, and you were never taught how to fight the fight of faith and resist the spirit of fear, oftentimes the fear will come back. This happens because you will think, “the prayer did not work, I must be doing something wrong. God did not answer my prayer, etc. etc.”

To prevent this, it is better for you to overcome oppression by relying on the Word of God and the Finished Work of Jesus for yourself. When you overcome, you will know that it was Jesus Who accomplished the victory for you. He is your intercessor and the finisher of your faith. Relying on Him and doing your part, resisting and fighting the good fight of faith James 4:7. Your relationship with Jesus will be on fire when you overcome the oppression, and you do not have to rely on another person to get you set free. Until you deal with a spirit of fear yourself, it’s difficult to get complete freedom from fear and it will try to come back. This applies also to any other issues you may be dealing with: bitterness, jealousy, unforgiveness, and a sense of abandonment or rejection.
