Lord I pray for our country, so divided, our ties to one another broken by consumerism and competitiveness. Help us to reimagine community and our common life, so that all are included, seen and heard. Please raise up politicians, community workers, ministers who are willing to listen, to act with integrity and to build bridges so we can live in a place where all have dignity and purpose. Enliven your church to play its part. Amen
Jesus you spent time with people who were excluded from society because of their mental ill health. Please help those who are struggling with mental health now, especially so many young people waiting for help and support. Please sustain them, heal them and help them find peace. Bless all who work in young people's mental health services, Camhs, GP's and counsellors. Amen.
