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 14 August and 11 September.
 

                  

GRACEPRAYERS AUGUST 14TH 2016

OUR HEAVENLY HOME

 

Where a person lives is so important; it is very difficult for M.E. sufferers to be happy where they live mainly because of their need for quiet. Quiet is essential for an M.E. sufferer, so they can sleep and not distress their already weakened neurological system.

Recently, Catherine had to say good-bye to the family home due to her mother’s death last Autumn. This home had been in the family for 55 years. It was very distressing and also surreal. How wonderful that we have a beautiful home to look forward to in Heaven – what a certainty!

 

Open in prayer

Hymn   The King of love my shepherd is

Reading Psalm 23 ‘I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever’ v.6

 

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.

 We focus again 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; also that a positive resolution will happen soon.

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.

 

Hymn    How lovely is thy dwelling place

Reading  2 Corinthians  5  Our eternal home in heaven

 

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 over 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   Crown Him with many crowns

 

We will finish with a reading from Revelation about our heavenly home. Paradise is seen as the ‘waiting room’ for heaven. Heaven will become the new heaven and earth after Paradise, with the New Jerusalem being a real city for us to live in, a city of gold with specific architectural measurements made with a variety of jewels. It will be glorious and beautiful. The best thing is that God’s presence will be obvious there: ‘And the city has no need of sun and moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.’ Revelation 21 verse 23

 

Reading Revelation 21

 

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)
