Prayers of Confession on Mental Illness 

Gracious God, forgive us for when we fail to recognize the destructive power of mental illness. Every day we are surrounded by people with real emotional and mental difficulties that we ignore. We confess our unwillingness to learn about complicated issues or how our own behaviors contribute to mental illness in ourselves or others. Lord God, give us humility as we repent of our sins and seek you. 

 Time of silent reflection.
