    Please intercede on my behalf. I suffer from ADHD and anxiety. It is weighing heavily on my heart and mind. Help me to overcome these ailments and to live a meaningful life free of the weight of my mental illnesses. They hurt those I love the most and they keep me from realizing my potential in so many ways.

    Dear St. Dyphna please intercede on behalf of my sister-in law Marianne. Her depression has become so debilitating and consuming that her life is filled with nothing but fear and anxiety. My brother loves her so much, he does everything within his power to help her, but he feels lost. Medication doesn't seem to work anymore. St. Dyphna please help her. Please bring her the peace she so deserves. In God's name. Amen

    Dearest St. Dymphna, Please help me to help my loving husband of 26 years, my soul mate, my best friend who suffers from bipoalr disorder and is in a manic state. Please help him regain his loving nature and make him see the love I have for him. Help him rebuke the demons inside his head that conspire to ruin our marriage. Please guide him back home to his loving wife and adoring daugther. Help him forgive each of our failings and grant us peace together. Please help others find the compassion and understanding that is needed to forgive the indiscretions of the mentally afflicted, including my husband. Amen.

    I admire her. She ran away to stay pure, to keep her commitment to God. And if your imagination is running wild and you are thinking things you don't mean to, pray to her. She will help. She will comfort you.
