Prayers for Depression, Effects from Abuse, etc

I realize I'm new here, but if anyone could pray for me, I would greatly appreciate it. I struggle with memories of an abusive childhood. I've been through mental and physical abuse, and was bullied tremendously from middle school through about my second year of high school. These things greatly affected my sense of self and my identity. Unfortunately, I didn't know the Lord at that time (mid-late 90's), and I began to struggle with homosexuality and have gone through seasons of living an actively gay lifestyle and being celibate due to my relationship with the Lord. I would like anyone who would to please pray for me to be delivered of a sense of a false identity, and also that I would no longer be haunted by my past. Thank you, and I promise to review the requests on here as well.

You are in my prayers, as well. We have a God who hears and answers prayer.

Praying for you. No easy answers or magical words but I do know that the Lord will strengthen you and help you if you lean on him.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."
