prayer for peace and self esteem and help with mental illness

Hi there,

I would like you to say a prayer for me and my girlfriend.

I suffer from schizophrenia and while I could handle it when living alone, I now have a girlfriend and I am not used to handling this double challenge. It was ok while I only had myself to worry about, but now with the new responsibilities it is not so easy anymore. In order to secure a future with my girlfriend I will have to find a job. I trust that God will provide me with a job and I don't feel despair, but I know I will need God's support with the challenges brought by the relationship with my girl, with the illness, and with the job I will have to do well.

I am cautiously confident, but I would just like to know some backup prayers. I would also like prayers that my girlfriend will always understand me and the schizophrenia problems and that we can have a wonderful, deep, fulfilling love life regardless of the things thrown at us by this illness. I want to make my girlfriend happy, she has been through much sorrow in life.

One thing I have to add, in the last ten years when I was alone the schizophrenia made me have an obsession with an atheist woman I knew. Just before I got to know my girlfriend, I had a good talk with my doctor who explained how the obsession I had with the atheist woman was not real love. And it really wasn't, we never helped each other, frequently let each other suffer without caring, ran away in different directions. But for some reason I didn't put an end to it but always returned to this woman, even when she found another boyfriend. The talk with the doctor and finding my girlfriend really helped, but part of my mind is still used to to think about the atheist woman ... I do not want it, I blame it on the schizo and on the fact that I pursued this woman for 10 years in such a foolish and unhealthy way. I need prayers that I can overcome the memories and all of the rest of the obsession that might still be left in me. I do not suffer from this anymore, just want to get completely clean for my girlfriend. I have bad OCD and schizophrenia problems, I just need understanding and support. I am not fornicating or adulterous, I know Jesus wants me to love my girlfriend only and I am happy about that. But my mind is like broken record sometimes.

Thank you for your prayers. Much love and God bless you!

Eternal God,
in whom mercy is endless

and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible,
Look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us,

But with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will,
Which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen

Short prayers of praise, such as the ones below, are often surprisingly helpful in situations where one might think petitionary prayers would be the most appropriate:

"This day was made by the Lord. We rejoice and are glad!" - from a Psalm; and

"The Lord has truly risen. Alleluia!" (I think St Mary Magdalene's exclamation, as she came from the empty tomb.)

Bsest wishes, Luth.
