This week is recognized as Mental Health Week, where awareness is raised around the issues of caring for our mental health. In seeking God’s guidance, let us pray for those around us and for ourselves to recognize the importance of caring for our own mental and emotional health, and having courage and wisdom in the face of ignorance and stigma. Pray for doctors, therapists, researchers, social workers, and all those in the helping professions as they seek to overcome ignorance and injustice with care and compassion. May our communities of faith be places of awareness, truth and love.
