Prayer to St Dymphna for Nervous Disorders & Mental Illness

“Lord, Jesus Christ, Thou hast willed that St. Dymphna should be invoked by thousands of clients as the patroness of nervous and mental disease and brought it about that her interest in these patients should be an inspiration to and an ideal of charity throughout the world.

Grant that, through the prayers of this youthful martyr of purity, those who suffer from nervous and mental illness everywhere on earth, may be helped and consoled. 
I recommend to Thee in particular . . . (Mention the person who needs the prayer)

Be pleased to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna and of Thy Blessed Mother, Health of the Sick and Comforter of the afflicted, on behalf of those whom I recommend to the care and compassion of Thy Sacred Heart. Give them the patience to bear with their affliction and resignation to do Thy Divine Will.

Give them the consolation they need and especially the cure they so much desire, if it be Thy Will. May we all serve Thy suffering members in that charity which may merit for us the reward of being united in Heaven with Thee, Our Divine Head, Who livest and reignest with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, forever, Amen.”
