Please pray for my 17-year-old daughter who is struggling with serious depression. We had to hospitalize her last month to keep her safe.

Thanks so much!

Loving God,

We thank you for your many blessings in our lives and in particular today we thank you for the gift of parenting and having children. We lift up the intentions for JohnPaul0 on behalf of his dear daughter who is suffering from depression. Lord, we ask for your mercy and the healing power of Jesus to be with this dear daughter, and grant her a strong faith, coping skills, wise and competent medical treatment, and hope in You. We also pray for the parents who suffer because they want the best for their child and have little ability to affect this situation other than ensuring their daughter receives the proper care and that they pray continuously for her. Dear Lord, I have a child that also suffers from depression and my heart and all my prayers go out to this family. Lord, please hear the persistent prayers of your people and grant this child of yours healing and peace, and help her parents to do the right things to effect her treatment and her healing.

We pray in the name of your beloved son Jesus - who has healed paralytics, lepers, possession by demons, blindness, and all forms of human suffering - that our Lord Jesus may have mercy and bring healing to dear daughter. We also pray that your comforting and consoling Holy Spirit may be with this family during this challenging time.

Amen.

Thank you all so very much! My wife and I just read through all your beautiful prayers and words of encouragement.:slight_smile:

Yes., she is getting prescriptions and counselling, her alone and with us there, too.

After this past event, she has begun to make changes in her life. We hardly dare to hope! She is still very fragile.

She also used to have a notably strong faith, and now she won’t even come to Mass with us.

So, she has a long road, and we are with her on it each day. It’s nice to feel all of your support, too.

Love in Jesus,
JohnPaul

Lord God, please Have Mercy upon this family who is so worried about the potential for self-harm from their daughter. Depression is a serious malady, Lord, and one that You have all power to lift. If You so will it, Lord, allow her depression to alleviate itself. Guide all doctors that are entrusted to her care, that they may provide her relief. Console her family, and allow them to offer up their anxieties to You, Lord. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, I pray. Amen.

St. Dymphna, please pray for this young woman.
