PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING FOR GOD’S PRESENCE

 
Spirit God, you know our needs
our wounds
our hurts
our fears
even before we can form them
into words of prayer.
You are patient with us.
You are protective of us.
You are present with us
until such time that we are able
to ask for what we need.
Thank you, Spirit God,
for your healing taking place within
before we are even aware
of how broken we have become.



Susan Gregg-Schroeder
In the Shadow of God’s Wings
Upper Room Books, 1997, pg. 116



‘God of glory, we rejoice that
(insert ‘a breakthrough in treatment’ or other significant event in healing)
has occurred.

Thank you for the various resources and people
who helped this to be possible
(insert here, if desired).

May the light of Your love continue to shine on
(insert individual struggling with mental health issue)

and all who support (him/her),
that light may continue to shine
in the midst of mental illness,
and everywhere.
Amen.’
