Prayer to St. Dymphna (mental illness)

St. Dymphna

O blessed St. Dymphna, go before the Lord and ask Him to touch those afflicted with mental illness with His healing love, especially (name person).

Ask that He give (name person) the courage and strength to bear his/her illness and that He bless (name person) with peace of heart and mind.

Pray the Lord brings understanding, compassionate, and empathetic people into (name person's) life, who will be kind and gentle with him/her.If it is necessary for (name person) to seek professional help, pray the Holy Spirit guides (name person) to the best doctors and therapists and that (name person) will attend sessions faithfully.

If it is God’s holy will, pray dear Dymphna, that He heal (name person) completely and restore him/her to fullness of health.

I ask all this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
