Lenten Devotion for March 26 written by Lola Mitchell

“Then people came out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind.” Luke 8:35 (NIV)

“In recent years our society’s approach to mental illness has become more compassionate …” (Sacred Encounters PW/Horizons Bible Study, 2023-24).

How does your faith influence how you encounter individuals with mental illnesses?

Lola L Mitchell, EdD


Let us pray. Mighty God, in Jesus Christ you deal with forces that trouble our minds and set us against ourselves. Give peace to those who are cast down, beset by anxiety, or torn by inner conflict. By your great might, drive from us the powers that shake confidence and shatter love. Bring us into the light of your truth, and give us your strong assurance that we are your beloved children in Jesus Christ our Lord. – From Evangelical Lutheran Worship Pastoral Care Supplement
