During this National Suicide Prevention Month may we offer special intentions to those who struggle with mental illness.
Dear Lord, we ask you to comfort and heal those among us and those whom we love who experience various mental health challenges. We know that at times their suffering is great and their isolation can seem unbearable. May they experience the love and support from their family and our community here at St. John Fisher, letting them know they do not journey alone. Remind us all, especially those who struggle, that we are valued and loved. We ask for your grace and mercy and that you will guide us, so that we may have compassion and love for those suffering from depression, anxiety and other emotions that sometimes try to diminish our spirit. Amen
