International Youth Day


Today is International Youth Day! International Youth day is a campaign by the United Nations to help support youth around the world. This year the campaign focuses on supporting youth will mental health issues. Pray with us for people with mental health problems and for the youth around the world!

A Prayer for people suffering with mental health issues:

Dear Lord of Mercy and Father of Comfort, You are the One I turn to for help in moments of weakness and times of need. 

Dear Lord, I ask you to strengthen those who suffer with mental health issues and  for them to have the power to:

Ask for help 

To recognize their victories 

And to love themselves 

Dear Lord, I ask you to give us all the tools  to support those suffering with mental health problems equip us with

Empathy to understand their problems 

love  for them always 

and  the strength to keep on supporting them. 

All of this I pray in the name of Jesus Christ.


A Prayer for youth:

O God, we pray and for you

to guide and protect young people

from the dangers that are ever present in our world today.

Be with them, as they experience both sickness and health,

sorrow and joy,

loneliness and friendship,

success and failure.

Gracious God,

give to them the courage and strength

to make the right decisions

as they journey through life.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit,

may they experience your loving care.

We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord.
