30 Days of Prayer for PTSD - Day 20
R.E.S.P.E.C.T. find out how it can help with PTSD. Not exactly the same as Aretha Franklin’s classic, but a good reminder nevertheless.
The National Center for PTSD reminds us that when “PTSD isn’t treated it usually doesn’t get better - it may get worse” (9). Respecting yourself and others brings more peace, trust, strength, and discipline. Here are a couple of tips to keep in mind:
Embrace new more positive thoughts.
Persevere in spite of your trauma.
Enjoy the little things.
Confidently share your story with others.
Take the time to talk to a counselor.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the reminder to “hold [each other] in the highest regard in love because of [our] work” 1 Thessalonians 5:13. Regardless of what has happened to us please help us to always seek the highest good for ourselves and those around us. Lord, we praise you for helping us to find trained counselors and others to help us in our pursuit to walk with more peace, trust, strength and discipline in our life. Thank you Lord, Amen!
Thank you so much for praying. Ya’ll have a beautiful day!
All My Love,
