Justin Bieber shared that he’s been “struggling a lot” lately and asked fans to pray for him amid reports he’s been battling depression.

“Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit. Hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys. Been struggling a lot,” the 25-year-old singer shared, according to E! News on Sunday. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

The “Baby” hitmaker continued, “God is faithful and your prayers really work thanks .. the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on..”

“He [Bieber] really wants to get better,” a source shared with the outlet last month. “He has been seeking all the help he can get.”

The same insider shared that he’s reportedly “in outpatient therapy and getting help every day,” with a close network involving “the people that love him most.” That group includes his 22-year-old super model wife and his pastor.

Another source shared that Baldwin is doing whatever she can to help and knows how Bieber is feeling has nothing to do with her.

“She’s very involved in his plan of action and making decisions,” the source shared. “She’s the rock right now and he goes to her for everything. She listens and is always there for him. Hailey has known about his struggles for a long time. He has dealt with depression before and this is not new to her.”

She also “knows it’s not about her and their marriage is solid,” the source added.

Baldwin and Bieber made headlines last year when reports surfaced that they had tied the knot after a brief engagement. It came only months after the “Love Yourself” hitmaker and Selena Gomez had split up.
