“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God and having Jesus as my Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sins to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gifts to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

Now, try to replace the present worldwide darkness to this situation, then you may be able to understand the feeling of a lot of people, may be including you: downcast and disturbed!
Don't be frightened! You have the antidote in Psalm 42:11
1. Put your hope in God, He is your only hope, your Rock and Salvation! Don't spend much time to look at things concerning with those news to pull you down to the pit of darkness! Spend more time to be with God and read His words!
2. Sing more Praise songs at home. Sing it out, sing it loud, sing more and you will be better!
If you are willing to be close to God and praise Him like that, you will surely be pulled out of darkness into His light, just like Moses, his face was full of light!
Because the more you praise, the more closer you are with God,
the more closer you are with God, the more light in your face,
because God's countenance shines upon you and that shows into your face, full of light!
Then, you will be transformed from downcast and disturbed to full of joy and laughter, full of peace and light!
