Prayers for Mental Health Awareness Week: 18-24 May

Lord, look upon us with the eyes of your mercy.

May your healing hand rest upon us; may your life-giving power flow into every cell of our bodies and into the depths of our souls, cleansing, purifying, restoring us to wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom.

Amen.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, who for love of our souls entered the deep darkness of the cross: we pray that your love may surround all who are in the darkness of great mental distress and who find it difficult to pray for themselves.

May they know that darkness and light are both alike to you and that you have promised never to fail them or forsake them.

We ask it for your name’s sake.

(Latter prayer sourced from Frank Colquhoun’s Contemporary Parish Prayers)

A prayer about the Coronavirus outbreak

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.
