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 in 2016 on 24 April, 15 May, and 19 June.
 

TRUSTING GOD

Graceprayers April 24th 2016

 

Open in prayer with this verse

‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. ‘ Proverbs 3 v.5 & 6

Trusting in God can also be translated as confidence or belief in Him.

Although the readings I’ve chosen are from the Old Testament, Jesus loves us to trust in Him. Trusting in God is a relationship as we learn to love Him and know Him.

 

Hymn  What a friend we have in Jesus

Reading  Isaiah 26   In this passage of judgement is the most wonderful glimpse of peace as we trust God  (vs.3 & 4)

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.

Dr. Speight has recently been reported to the General Medical Council for seemingly false allegations. This is surely yet another attempt by the psychiatric lobby to stop the good M.E. doctors.

Please also pray for the protection of good doctors speaking out against the current End Of Life approach to hospital patients, which can cause unnecessary torture and intention to kill off patients (mainly the elderly).

Hymn Faithful One

Reading Psalm 62 (especially verse 8 ‘Trust in him at all times, O people,’)

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 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.

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 almost two years ago. 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 When we walk with the Lord (Trust and Obey)

 

A Prayer of Trust by Linda Crowhurst

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
