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.  Include your postal address for this as we like to send out prayer cards.

 Please keep Karina Hansen (Denmark)  in your prayers, as she has been sectioned and forced to undergo inappropriate treatment for M.E.  Please pray for her release and safe return home.  We are thrilled to learn that Mirjam Knapp (Germany) has been released, and is happily returned home!

                                   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.

 

 
  Once per month we pray for M.E. sufferers and their carers.  This is known as Grace Prayers.  Please join in from afar for this service.  All Grace Prayers are on a Sunday at 3pm. Future services will continue.
 

              

GRACEPRAYERS JUNE 19TH 2016

The Peace of Christ

 

More and more, our charity is being contacted by M.E. sufferers who are troubled by neighbour noise. Sometimes this is due to the sufferer being extra noise-sensitive, from the nature of the illness, but often it’s due to neighbours being inconsiderate. It is essential that M.E. sufferers have a quiet environment – more essential for them than a healthy person.

It’s almost impossible to have inner peace when your body is distressed by outside noise, but at this Graceprayers we will pray for those sufferers affected by noise. We will pray that the noise stops or at least eases for them. We will also pray that sufferers and carers receive the peace of Christ.

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.  (Colossians 3 v.15)

And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4 v.7)

Hymn  Like a River Glorious is God’s perfect peace

Reading  Psalm 23, The Lord is my shepherd

Prayer We especially focus this Graceprayers on Sharon, a severe M.E. sufferer in England, who is enduring overwhelming distress from neighbour noise, both day and night. Please pray that the noise will stop and that Sharon won’t be tested beyond what she can bear.

Please also continue to pray for Linda and Greg in England, that jets would stop their flying practice over their home. This has eased a bit but is still happening. They are also enduring other environmental noise. Linda is ultra noise sensitive from the M.E. Please pray that the Lord will heal her from this distressing symptom. Thank you.

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.

Taize chant O Lord hear my prayer

Reading Isaiah 26 vv. 1 -6, 12 – 13

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.

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 helped with Mirjam Knapp’s release and was involved in trying to secure Karina Hansen’s release. Dr. Speight has recently been restricted by the General Medical Council from any involvement with M.E. patients at all, both in paid and unpaid work. This is outrageous. Dr. Speight is a hero for M.E. truth and has had no known allegations against him from M.E. sufferers or their carers – only praise.  Please pray that his restrictions will be dropped immediately.

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. It is two years since David lost his beloved wife Geri ; also for John ‘s  health and for Catherine’s colitis which has gone on for 11 years now.  Thank you. Give thanks for God’s strength through it all.

Hymn Prince of glory, Prince of peace

 

Prayer of trust by Linda Crowhurst (from Greg Crowhurst’s book Unstoppable Spirit)

Lord in all things I trust in you; when fear overwhelms me I turn to You; when doubt assails me I turn to You; when peace is lost I turn to You; when anxieties mob me I turn to You; when pain oppresses me I turn to You; when worries betray me I turn to You; Lord in all things I am held by You.

Amen
