Default First Time Prayer Request

I haven't ever asked for anyone to do this, not even my family and friends who share the same beliefs. However, I am asking for just a small prayer, a few words for a stranger that is struggling with mental illnesses they are finally trying to take control of.

I know there will always be people out there who are worse off than I. But I believe I am allowed to feel upset about things in my life that affect me negatively. So if you could say a few words, I'm hoping someone out there will hear you out and hear me out, and maybe... just maybe I can make things better.

Hope everyone out there is blessed, I hope someone pays it forward, I hope someone helps you, I hope one thing in your day will make you smile, if only for a moment.

You have a right to feel your feelings. If you're upset, feel it. But don't let it overtake you if you can.

Sending prayers to you. I hope you feel better soon.

I am at a loss myself. I understand what you are feeling and I am sending a prayer and saying one for myself.

Mental illness is hard, and I don't think we will ever understand it.

Praying for you and for all of us who are struggling with mental illness.

May you find solace in this hard journey, may we all do.

May we find/forge the strength and will to transform whatever is in our power to change for the better, and may we find the courage to accept whatever we can't change.

Even if suffering seems permanent, it's not, everything flows and changes constantly. This, too, shall pass.

You are not a stranger anymore, I am glad you reached out. I will keep your request in my heart and prayers. Also, I will be here to listen if you ever need anything. It is absolutely okay to feel your emotions. That is what makes us all who we are, it makes us human. When you feel like you are alone in a problem or don't have an answer, by all means reach out. Know you are not alone and that we all feel ugly about something about ourselves and someone cares. Once you allow yourself to feel the way you feel, and know it is ok, you can start to take control. Free yourself of that burden of guilt. When you can take a breath and smile, even if it is forced at first, you can start to feel empowered. Like you mentioned, even if only for a moment, know that you are in control and know that you are special and awesome! That might be all you need to be able to look around you and enjoy the things we are all meant to enjoy. Get out of our heads and enjoy time with the people or loved ones in our lives. Our just take in the beauty of something around you or how your pet loves you unconditionally. Those little victories add up and can make a huge difference.
