Today, our hearts are focused on those in our community who strive to overcome and manage mental health concerns. Lord, we pray for these individuals, families, support networks, and clinicians to be encouraged and confident in the healing and peace that only you provide. We pray that you will open our minds and soften our hearts to those whose circumstances are difficult for us to understand and lead us in the ways that we can serve these individuals and families. We pray that you will help us overcome the social stigma that exists about mental illness and see one another through Your eyes. Amen.

Challenge: Ask God to free you from judgement towards those that struggle with mental health concerns, and fill you instead with grace and compassion. Seek God for ways to accept and serve those struggling with mental illness.
