Prayer to St. Dymphna – for those suffering with mental illness

Please say an extra prayer for those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or any mental illness, which is so rampant in our world today.

Everyone has a cross to bear, some harder than others. Smile and be kind to everyone you meet. Be a friend to that someone who is alone or could use a friend. Pray for them every day and make an effort to let them know that they are loved unconditionally.

Below is the prayer to Saint Dymphna, the patroness of those who suffer with nervous and mental afflictions:

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.)

Dear Saint Dymphna, Virgin and Martyr, pray for us.
