Let Your reputation be one of a generous Father who delivers good gifts to those who call on Him in faith. Amen.

Prayer to a Sympathetic Savior
Lord Jesus, I turn to You because I know that You understand. You have suffered more than I can imagine. You descended from Your glorious place into humiliation.

Grant me mental healing. Let my restored life be a testimony to Your mercy and kindness. Amen.

Prayer for Restored Joy
God of All Grace, please hear my cry. My joy seems to have vanished, and I long to feel as I once did before I had PTSD. I live under constant anguish and despair, and it seems as though it will never end. God, I trust in You and ask that You give me a restored attitude of joy. Please bring me the joy of my salvation and grant me freedom from my affliction in this world. I know that You care for me and can help me along my way in life. Amen.
