Dear Heavenly Father,
You mention in your Word that children are a blessing. Indeed they are! Every child differs from another, yet you created them and know them by name. Thank you for the gift of children and giving us adults the incredible opportunity of being surrounded by them. I pray for children who have a mental illness. I am not sure how mental illness affects a child’s life, but you do, and again every child is different. I intercede for them right now asking that you would fill them with joy and show them why they are as you made them. I pray that husbands and wives who are raising a child with mental illness would be patient in loving them and provide any proper treatment they may. May you bless these families and guide them in Jesus name AMEN!
