Prayer for Those With Physical or Mental Illness
Oh Jesus you appreciate my fears, peculiarities and dreams.
You feel my loneliness, and my pain from taunts or neglect.
For you suffered for us and you suffer with us.
You offer hope and rewards in heaven, but no instant fixes.
Sometimes Jesus I am so happy I cry tears of endearment.
But many times I am so depressed and alone, I cry tears of endurance.
Please help me Jesus to cope with my daily burdens until
I obtain the grace & strength to live my life you so graciously gave to me.
Help me to embrace your love and guidance.
Thank You, Jesus.
I have just watched “ a DVD from Netflix about mental illness and I recommend that you view it also. It is uplifting, informative, professionally produced and worth your time to watch. It is less than 30 minutes and titled “Shadow Voices, Finding Hope in Mental Illness” ---You can also access it at PDF@www.ShadowVoicees.com.
Let me know what you think of it. firstname.lastname@example.org. Rose Anne Hallgren, Physical/Mental Health V.C.
