Prayer for people with disabilities

Tony Lobl, C.S.

In this active chat, Tony and site visitors offer many thoughts about recognizing the spiritual nature of each individual and how this can support healing for those dealing with disabilities. Tony responds to questions from parents about caring for children who are disabled physically or mentally. An adult caring for her mother asks for guidance on how to pray about dementia. Loss of vision and other physical disabilities are addressed. Site visitors also share their own experiences of helping children and adults who are disabled.
