“Today we pray for all those whose lives are affected by Bipolar disorder, which is sometimes called manic-depression.

We pray that they be given “Strength for today and Hope for tomorrow.” May they receive these, and other good gifts each and every day, and may they become increasingly aware of Your faithful provision for them. 

We pray that as individuals who are their family, friends and neighbours we listen, speak, and act in such a way as to give them strength, and to inspire hope.

We pray that faith communities be consistently welcoming, inclusive, encouraging, and supportive to those whose lives are affected by Bipolar disorder.

May we be open to learning from them, and  be genuinely grateful for the wisdom and the diverse gifts that they bring to us.

We give thanks for the improvement in medication and treatment programs, and for all those who work with compassion and dedication to offer clinical and community support.

We pray that the terrible burden of stigma be removed from those who are affected by mental illness. We ask that you lead us to think, to speak out, and to act in ways that will be real contributions to removing stigma and discrimination.

May we be a part of the gift of “Strength for today and Hope for tomorrow” for all those we meet.
Amen.
