Prayer for Help to Live My Life

by Susie (Lumby B.C. Canada)

I have bi-polar disorder which I have struggled with during certain times since I was 20 years old. I had post-partum depression and spent six months on a pych ward. I recovered and raised my two sons. I had an episode about 12 years ago and was off work for about a year. I have been suicidal many times and have attempted three serious ones that almost left me for dead.

My most recent was in June and I spent three months in a program called step. I have been blessed with a granddaughter in April. I have had ECT’s which seem to be the only thing that helps when I go into depression. I am home now and need prayers for me to recover. I am volunteering in a community centre. I also see councelllers twice a week.

I go to church most Sundays and really am trying to live my life by and through God. I need all the prayers I can get to help me conquer this terrible illness. I do have a wonderful husband who has always been there for me. I haven’t worked for three years and am on a disability pension. Please pray that I will be able to be a good grama and live my life happier…Thanks so much..

  1. Susie, you will make it!

    What you are going through is an incredible trial and a burden. Even if you can’t pray or help yourself or want to help yourself, know that you are a beautiful child of God and your grandbaby wants to see you and know you!!!!

    Know also that the enemy loves to use your condition against you. Try to keep in mind that DESPAIR IS THE GREATEST TOOL OF THE DEVIL

    Try to also keep in mind that no matter how bad it is, Jesus wants you to live and be a gramma! He will send you graces, just ask.

    It will be hard and you will be tempted to give in to despair. Know that is the worst think you can do. Jesus died for you Susie, even if you were the only person on the planet- Jesus would have been crucified for you to save you from your sins. Let Jesus love you.

    YOu are not worthless, even if you sometimes feel that way. Jesus loves you and so does you grandchild.

    Don’t give up! Pray! We will pray for you too.

    God bless you.

  2. Praying for you!

    God loves you and I choose to believe He has given you higher favor by afflicting you with a huge and heavy cross. Your acceptance into His Kingdom is assured, just please keep turning to Him in your trials and tribulations. I find that the following prayer to Saint Dymphna helps me:

    Good Saint Dymphna, great wonder-worker in every affliction of mind and body, I humbly implore your powerful intercession with Jesus through Mary, the Health of the Sick, in my present need. (Mention it.) Saint Dymphna, martyr of purity, patroness of those who suffer with nervous and mental afflictions, beloved child of Jesus and Mary, pray to Them for me and obtain my request.

    (Pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary and one Glory Be.)

    Saint Dymphna, Virgin and Martyr, pray for us.

    I also find a lot of comfort in the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help. The words comfort me in my times of mental and physical despair.

    I love you and will make sure to pray for joy, satisfaction, and mental security in your life.
