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.
Lord I pray for everyone who is being changed over to UC at the present time. Please help the change to be made quickly and bless them with support and means while the change happens. Please would the government act justly towards those who can't work for whatever reason. Amen
Teachers & students
Lord we pray for everyone receiving exam results, especially those to whom next steps depend on particular measures of achievement. Please bless and guide everyone who is working out plans for their future - lead them to the right place. We pray for all teachers and support staff, preparing for the start of the new academic year and thank you for their dedication and vocation. Give them hope, imagination, resilience and stamina to support all the students in their care. Praying especially for schools in difficult areas, for protection for all students & staff, and for blessing and hope to permeate the hearts of all. Amen
