Prayer for friend struggiling with mental illness
« on: November 21, 2010, 03:22:37 PM »
Please keep my friend, Justin, in prayer. Justin has been diagnosed as bi-polar, manic depressive, and has been receiving treatment with counseling and medication for the past six months. Two months ago, Justin told me that he had decided to stop going to counseling. Today, he announced that he has decided to stop taking his meds full stop.

Justin is stubborn and will not listen to the advice of others.

Please pray for him. His patron saints are Ss. Cyprian and Justina.

Thank you!

As someone who also has bipolar and AD(H)D, I understand.  Lord have mercy and may our beloved Lady Theotokos and his patrons pray and bring him healing.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Please continue to pray for Justin, I fear that he is suicidal.
