Prayer for August 23, 2022

We pray today for those who struggle with depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses, Healing God. The burdens they carry are beyond my imagination and we struggle with the reality that it is hard to know what to do for them in their moments of need. May we all be a present to those around us so that we can be as much of a comfort in need and also recognize when it is our time to step in to help them find help. Be with those who love them, as they often discover their needs in ways that are scary and painful. Let us be supportive of them and give us the ability to say comforting words in challenging times. We ask that you especially help us be present to those who are so lost that they are contemplating ending it all, and that your presence is felt by them. May your peace fill them this and everyday. Amen
