You might be asking yourself, “How do I pray for safety for myself?”

And that is the question we are here to answer for you.

A good place to start is to understand the mental health implications of praying for safety.

Here are some of the mental healthcare professionals and spiritual leaders who are actively working to prevent suicide and self harm, and help people get help to manage their anxiety and depression.


Dr. Elizabeth Weidman Dr. Weidmans prayer for safe prayer for people in crisis, and her personal mantra, “Prayer for me, help me.”

“I think prayer can be a tool for people to be able to heal from things that they’ve been through and understand what they are trying to accomplish,” said Dr. Deborah Weideman, the director of the Center for Mental Health at Boston Medical Center.

“But I think it is also a tool to bring people together to share a personal narrative and understand how we’re all connected.”

“Praising God for strength, courage and grace is important for people who are struggling to cope,” Dr. Mark Weidmann, a professor at Columbia University, wrote on his blog.

“It’s not always easy to pray for someone to get help, but it can help.”



Michael Hanegraaff and James Fiey Dr. Michael and James Hane graaff, both clinical psychologists and the authors of “The Power of Prayer,” explain that prayers can have a profound effect on a person’s spiritual state and mental health.

“There are a lot of people in the mental illness field that are trying desperately to find ways to improve their mental health and help others with their mental illness,” said Fie.

“They want to be happy and healthy, and they want to find a way to feel connected to God and be part of the healing process.”


Dr Lori O’Brien The director of The Center for Prayer at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Lori O ‘Brien is a psychiatrist and spiritual teacher who has been a proponent of prayer for over 30 years.

She believes that praying for people’s safety and well-being is an important tool for them to connect with God.

“We need to be asking ourselves questions about what is the best way to be safe and who is in our lives and in our community and in this world,” Dr O’Briens said.

“What do we need to do?

What can we do as individuals to be more vulnerable?

And how can we make the world a better place?”


Dr Paul Rieger, M.D. Dr Riegers prayer for life support, and his own personal mantra of “Praise God for peace.”

Dr. Rieges mantra of life support is simple: “Praise God for the love and peace you have given me.”


Dr Karen Hagan, M, a clinical psychologist and author of “A Mind of Mine” The Dr. Karen Hagen prayer for a better understanding of the world.

Hagan believes that the more we understand the human condition, the better we can be at helping people to heal.

“I would say the most important thing that people can do to help themselves is to look in the mirror and pray,” Dr Hagan said.

Dr Sharon Dolan Dr. Sharon Dola, an independent psychotherapist, author of the book, “Loving Minds,” and author and speaker, says it’s important to practice the “power of prayer.”

“Pairing the power of prayer with the strength of our beliefs can have an incredible effect on our lives.”


Dr Mark Hahn Dr. Hahn’s prayer, “The prayer for strength.”

“When I have my mind on something, it is very tempting to think I’m making myself feel better,” said Hahn.
