Prayer for my son’s mental health

by Sheila (Villemomble, France)

Lord, I praise and worship you as my God Almighty, my Wonderful Counsellor, my Everlasting Father, my Prince of Peace. I pray that you will heal my son and restore his peace and give him a spirit of power and of love and a sound mind. Please protect him from all the attacks of the enemy.

Create in him a clean heart Oh God, and put your Holy Spirit in him. Let your voice be the only voice he hears. Let there be clarity, not confusion in his mind and where there is any mental instability or illness, please heal him. Let him be able to rejoice and say “Thank you Father, I cried out to you and you healed me.”

In the name of Jesus, our precious Saviour.

  1. Thank you

    Thanks for such a beautiful prayer, my 21 adult son who lives with me has mental illness and doesn’t seek appropriate treatment. Today he is being very angry, paranoid and ungrateful. Your prayer is just what I need to pray daily.

  4. What a breath of Hope

    I thank you for this prayer. I have written it down and will pray daily. I will send to my son now incarcerated at a State Hospital. The pain is unbearable at times and I yearn for him to be healed.

  5. Encouragement in the heavy hour

    I thank you for this prayer as our 16 yr old is in a psychiatric hospital for the second week. He began behind rageful and hurting himself. This was the most gut wrenching feeling to leave him there. Tonight my heart is so heavy and aching that he’s laying in the hospital and not at home with us. I will copy this prayer.

  6. Down and Desperate

    Thank you for this prayer.
    I’m so angry about what has happened to my beautiful son. The cruelty and injustice of some people. I can’t think straight anymore. Your words bring clarity and I can only hope God listens and steps in to help heal him. This has been going on for years. It is beyond terrible. My son desperately needs spiritual help. Humans have severely let him down. Please God, hear our prayers and save our mentally ill children. Please.

  7. Thank you!

    This is a wonderful prayer, and I prayed it out loud for my son. He is 17 and in a psychiatric care unit right now. He desperately needs help and he doesn’t want it – doesn’t think he needs it. I pray the Lord will break through to him with His love so that my son will accept the help and be able to make progress. He was such a happy kid and this is so hard.

  8. Daughter with mental illness

    My daughter is almost 21 and has been in and out of mental health hospitals since 16. She is currently in hospital. This prayer really helps to pray in a positive powerful way when I cannot think of what to pray anymore. We are not alone.
    Thank you

    Thank you for this beautiful prayer – our 25 year old son has withdrawn from all friends will barely talk to us (he has come home and is living w ith us now). The bright spot is that he is workiing as a dishwasher and has kept this job for a year. My heart aches for him – he was such a happy kid, scholastically very bright and I am afraid for his future. Please keep him in your prayers. His name is Reid.

  11. Son needs prayer

    My adult son thinks he’s ugly but he’s actually good looking. He said “being ugly” is the source of all his problems. Others have said he’s handsome too but he doesn’t believe them. His concerns are real, I see it every day. He’s kind, hard working, and generous. Somewhere in his life he believed a lie told him by someone and has carried that with him all these years later. Please pray for him. I won’t give his name but his initials are B.B. God bless each and everyone of you for praying. Thank you.

  12. Desperate for your prayers

    My son is mentally I’ll but he doesn’t want to admit it.
    He’s been in and out of hospitals for the last 20 years.
    He believes in conspiracy theories and he is going really crazy.
    Please pray for him, he believes in God but everything is bad for him.
    I need all the prayers you can give him. cam
