St Dymphna Novena Prayer
Saint Dymphna is venerated as the patron saint of those suffering from mental and emotional distress. This association arose because of the circumstances of her own life, including her mother's death and her father's mental illness, as well as the violent end to her own life.

St. Dymphna Novena Prayer
O God, we humbly beseech You through Your servant, St. Dymphna, who sealed with her blood the love she bore You, to grant relief to those who suffer from mental afflictions and nervous disorders, especially… (Mention your request here…). You graciously chose St. Dymphna as patroness of those afflicted with mental and emotional illnesses. She is an inspiration and a symbol of charity to all who ask for her intercession.
Grant through the prayers of this pure youthful martyr consolation and healing to all who suffer such trials. We beg you, Lord, to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna on our behalf. Grant us patience in suffering and acceptance of Your Divine Will. Fill our hearts with hope, and grant us the relief and strength we so much desire. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
St. Dymphna, helper of the mentally afflicted, pray for us.
