PRAYERS FOR SOCIAL, ECONOMIC
AND ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
RELATED TO MENTAL HEALTH


“What does a church’s concern for a just society and a warless world have to do with mental health? Everything! The prophetic ministry constitutes an essential part of any church’s mental health opportunity. A dynamic concern for the problems of individuals should not cause a neglect of the social matrix which spawns individual problems. A church should work ‘like a miner under a landslide’ to eliminate the social causes of mental illness and to create a growth-enhancing society in which positive mental health will bloom like a rose.”

Howard J. Clinebell, Jr, The Mental Health Ministry of the Local Church

A FRANCISCAN BENEDICTION


May God bless you with DISCOMFORT…
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships,
So that you may live deep within your heart.


May God bless you with ANGER…
At injustice, oppression and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.


May God bless you with TEARS…
To shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them
And to turn their pain into JOY.


And may God bless you with enough FOOLISHNESS…
To believe that you can make a difference in this world.
