Here are a few:
Persons are at risk for spiritual pain when they
have:

🌺Begin to lose hope in their health and life
 
Spiritual pain can sometimes be so personal for some they have a hard time expressing that they have it to their community. Sometimes because they fear judgement or even judge themselves, or maybe they don’t even know what the distress is. We can help many if we can start taking a spiritual history and assess the needs of the spirit and if there is any distress.
