#132 - I'm Hospitalized for Mental Illness
Volume 1 - Prayers to Love God

Dear Father, somebody was worried about me. I am now hospitalized for the behaviors that I have displayed recently. This is a difficult place to be in. I can't come and go as I please. I can communicate with friends and family only with restrictions. I'm receiving a powerful dosage of medication which alters my thought life. I'm having to attend therapy with complete strangers. There are other patients on the floor with me who scare me, people I don't want to be associated with. I'm not like them. I'm normal. Father, I feel helpless, needy, and dependent, almost like a child. This is so very hard. I don't want to be here. Please deliver me from this place. Father, if I'm supposed to be in here to heal, please help me heal. Make me cooperative. Help me learn the lessons You have put me in here to learn. Help me to understand the staff in this place are Your servants, chosen by You to meet a critical need that I have. Help me to love the frightening people who are living with me. Father, if my hospitalization is in some way about my pride and my refusal to surrender to You, I surrender now. May You be the Lord of my life. I quit being my own God. Father, give me freedom once more and may I continue my renewal and restoration with dedication and independence - outside of this hospital. Amen.
