PRAYERS SUITABLE FOR USE DURING MENTAL HEALTH WEEK:


The National Day of Prayer


for Mental Illness Awareness


Recovery and Understanding


 See:  A Call For Prayer   


Leader: God, we come before You remembering all those whose lives have been touched by mental illnesses. We give thanks for the people who have given of their time and talents to help those who are dealing with mental illnesses – in their own lives, or in the lives of their families and friends. We give thanks for the improvement in medication and treatment programs that have enabled persons with mental illnesses to live productive lives. We pray that our society would do everything possible to make early diagnosis and treatment a standard procedure. We pray that stigma be removed, so that both those who are unwell, and their families, get the appropriate help as soon as symptoms appear. Guide each one of us, and help us, as we endeavor to bring help and hope to all whose lives have been touched by mental health issues. Amen


All:


This faith community says to those people who suffer from the symptoms of mental illness, and to their family members:


We will walk with you. And God walks with you. You will not go through this alone.

O Lord, you have searched us and known us

You know when we sit down and when we rise up,

and know our innermost thoughts.

You search out our paths and know all our ways.

Before we speak, you know our words.

When we were knit together in our mother’s womb

You knew us as woman, as child, as man.

Wherever we go, Your hand will lead us.

So guide us along the pathways to hope,

that night becomes bright as day.

So lead us on our walk together,

that darkness is lifted from our hearts.

So encourage us that our sisters and brothers

Who have mental illness shall know that

they never walk alone.   Amen.
