Prayers of the Faithful for Mental Illness Awareness Week

 

Prayers of the Faithful

That the darkness of stigma, labels, exclusion and marginalization might be dispelled by the light of greater understanding, acceptance and respect for the dignity of every person.
 

For your children who are living with mental illness, we pray to the Lord.

For those who are troubled in mind and spirit, we pray to the Lord.

For those suffering from mental illness; May they be healed through the mercy of the Holy Spirit, we pray to the Lord.

For priest, deacons, religious and parishioners; May they grow stronger in their love and commitment to individuals and their families living with a mental illness, we pray to the Lord.

For the unity and mission of the Holy Church; that it may welcome and serve those who live with a mental illness, we pray to the Lord.
