Litany for People Living with Mental Illnesses

Lord, you are the great Healer.
Today we pray for those who live with mental illnesses.
For those crippled by depression and anxious feelings,

bring healing, bring peace.

For those who suffer from the high and lows of severe mood swings,

bring healing, bring peace.

For those who are tormented by voices and hallucinations,

bring healing, bring peace.

For those who find it difficult to cope with tasks of daily living,

bring healing, bring peace.

For those who struggle with suicidal thoughts,

bring healing, bring peace.

God of great gifts,
thank you for the courage of those who live with mental illnesses.
Thank you for the patience of family and friends who support.
Thank you for our health system and all who work to

bring healing, bring peace.

Give us wisdom and insight as a church,
as a community, as a society,
to be places that can

bring healing, bring peace.
