|| 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.)
If you are an M.E. sufferer and would like to receive prayer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.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
If you would like to pray for M.E. sufferers, contact us at email@example.com 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 June 14th 2015
GOD AS OUR FATHER
Next Sunday, June 21st, is Father’s Day. It is also the Longest Day, when we’ll have the most daylight. Mother’s Days and Father’s Days can be very emotive for people. It’s fine if your parents are alive, or if you get on well with them; but if they’ve died or you have strained relationships, then these kind of days can be tough. Also, if you are not a father but long to be, then Father’s day can be difficult.
Jesus had no earthly children; he had no earthly father. Yet His relationship with God the Father was supreme. This is what we will be thinking about today.
Reflection: My Child
I gave you a gift beyond measure and have nothing left to give
For my life was poured out through the death of my Son
Such is my love for you (Liz Babbs, 2001)
Hymn Father hear the prayer we offer
Reading John 5 v.16 – 30 Jesus calls God His Father
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.
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.
Hymn Father we love you
Reading Matthew 10 v.32 – 42 The cost of being a Christian
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.
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 who lost his beloved wife Geri over a year ago. 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.
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in Heaven
Hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our debts
As we also have forgiven our debtors
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
(Matthew 6 v.9 -13)
