Yesterday I asked for prayers for both my daughters and their mental health issues. Today Patricia's father called to inquire if she could possibly move from Texas to Ohio to live with or near me, very near. She is paranoid schizophrenic, not been taking medication, acts and dresses bizarre, shaves her head, wears camo shorts, punches holes in walls lately, etc. You get the picture.

I am somewhat familiar with services in this area because I have been an advocate, served in NAMI, and mentored a bipolar single mom who has lost custody of her five children twice in two years. God has prepared me for this perhaps.

I do not know what Patricia will decide. Pray for me. She was the first child to come into my home at age ten as a foster child, from the local children's unit of the mental health hospital.

I trust the wisdom God will grant me. I trust that all doors and windows needed will be opened. I will need strength, likely all the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Thank you.

    Prayer to Saint Raphael the Archangel

    Glorious Archangel Saint Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court,
    you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace.
    You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air,
    consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners.
    We beg you, assist us in all our needs and in all the sufferings of this life,
    as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels.

    Because you are the "medicine of God,"
    We humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities of our souls and the ills that afflict our bodies.
    Be it part of God's plan, we ask of you the favor of Patricia's healing,
    and the great grace of purity to prepare us to be the temple of the Holy Spirit.
    Amen.
    Praying

    Saint Raphael of the glorious seven who stand before the throne of Him who lives and reigns,
    angel of health, the Lord has filled your hand with balm from heaven to soothe or cure our pains.
    Heal or cure the victim of illness, and guide our steps when doubtful of our ways.
    We especially ask of you the favor of protection for Patricia and guidance for her mother, Martie.
    Amen.
    Praying
