Prayer

Praying Hands              This prayer page serves a double purpose.
  • Firstly, are you an M.E. sufferer?
    Would you like to receive prayer? 

  • Secondly, would you like to pray for someone who has M.E?
    (You can do this if you do or don’t have M.E.)

Receiving Prayer

If you are an M.E. sufferer and would like to receive prayer, please contact us at info@thegracecharityforme.org  We would like to know how long you’ve had M.E. for and what specifically you’d like prayer for (e.g. pain relief, better mobility etc).  We will then pray for you at our next Grace Charity prayer meeting; we aim to have meetings monthly.  For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.  Matthew 18:20  NIV translation 

If your prayer request is an emergency, let us know this so we can get others to pray for you as soon as possible.

Please let us know how you are after we've prayed for you.  Currently, we can only offer a one-off prayer for new contacts, as we are overwhelmed with prayer requests.  However, if you feel you could do with more one-off prayers, then do contact us again!

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!  Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21  NIV translation

Praying for others

PrayerIf you would like to pray for M.E. sufferers, contact us at info@thegracecharityforme.org and we will send you one or two names of sufferers who want prayer.  We will need your postal address for this as we like to send out prayer cards.

Privacy assurance: The Grace Charity for M.E. will only use email and postal addresses for the purpose of the prayer cards and these details will not be given out for any other reason.

 

GRACEPRAYERS

Once a month, a small group of us meet together to pray for M.E. sufferers and the M.E. situation.  We call this service Graceprayers.  All services are on Sundays at 3pm GMT.  You are welcome to join in with us, from afar, whilst these meetings are taking place:  scheduled services are Sundays 17 May, 14 June and 12 July.  Below is the service sheet to help you focus and feel 'a part' of the service. 

  

                       M.E. AWARENESS WEEK MAY 17th 2015

 
We are focusing our M.E. Awareness Graceprayers on praying for the release of Karina Hansen (Denmark) and Mirjam Knapp (Germany) from hospitals which have sectioned them.
  
Introduction: Thank God for all the M.E. Awareness throughout the world this week. Pray that the truth will not evaporate but will stay and make a change.
  
Hymn: I need thee every hour
  
Reading: ACTS 12 v.1-18 Peter’s miraculous escape from jail
  
Long my imprisoned spirit lay fast bound in sin and nature’s night
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray – I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free.
I rose, went forth and followed thee.
 Charles Wesley (from the hymn ‘And Can It Be’)
  
                                               
Please now focus on Karina Hansen (Denmark) who was sectioned over 2 years ago and forced to undergo psychotherapy treatment against her wishes. The sectioning has impeded upon human rights legislation. Please pray for Karina’s imminent release, her health and for her family. Please also pray for 15 year old Mirjam Knapp in Germany who has also been sectioned and forced to do things she cannot do. Please pray for Mirjam’s imminent release, her health and her family.
  
Hymn: O Lord hear our prayer
  
Recent prayer requests: Our charity will now pray for several M.E. sufferers who have contacted us in the last month, often globally. Please pray for an M.E. sufferer you know.
  
Persistent prayers: This is when we pray for a number of M.E. sufferers on an ongoing basis who seem to need a deeper level of persistent prayer for the circumstances in their lives.
  
Please pray for Linda and Greg in England, that the jets would stop flying over their home. Thank you.
  
Reading: SAMUEL 17 v.20-58 David and Goliath
  
Prayer for M.E. researchers and doctors: Please pray for all M.E. researchers and doctors who bravely work towards the truth of biomedical M.E.: for their safety, protection and continuing of their valuable work without hindrance. Please pray for Dr. Nigel Speight who has been involved in trying to secure Karina Hansen’s release and that of Mirjam Knapp’s.
  
Prayer for each other and anyone else who comes to mind. Please also pray for the trustees of the Grace Charity for M.E., especially for David Laker. Today is the first anniversary of losing his beloved wife Geri last year; also for John ‘s health and for Catherine’s colitis which has gone on for 10 years now.  Thank you. Give thanks for God’s strength through it all.
  
Hymn: And can it be
 
  
                   Blessing:                    The Lord bless you and keep you
             The Lord make His face to shine upon you
And be gracious to you
The Lord lift up His countenance
Upon you and give you peace. 
 
                        Numbers 6 v.24-26
