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.

  We are thrilled to hear that prayers for both Karina Hansen (Denmark) and Mirjam Knapp (Germany) have been answered:  both have been released from hospital sectioning, and are 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.  Grace Prayers are usually on the third Sundays of the month at 3pm.  
           

GRACEPRAYERS

November 13th 2016


Praise

The charity has some good news to report. We praise God that Karina Hansen is back home after 3 and a half years of being sectioned in Denmark. This week saw her birthday (we think it’s her 27th or 28th birthday).

  

Secondly, Dr. Nigel Speight has had ALL charges against him dropped, so he can now practise treating M.E. sufferers and continue his advisory role.

  

Lastly, the Grace Charity for M.E. celebrates its 10th birthday this month. This is wonderful as the whole charity was an act of faith, so we thank God for His faithfulness.

  

Open in prayer thanking God for the above or something else to thank God for

 

Read the following chorus out loud

O Happy Day! O Happy Day! When Jesus washed my sins away; He taught me how to watch and pray and live rejoicing every day – hallelujah! O happy day! O happy day! When Jesus washed my sins away.

(words Philip Doddridge)

 

Hymn  Praise my soul the King of Heaven

 

Scripture Reading  Philippians 1 v1-18

God’s promise of ‘finishing’ a good work which He has begun.

 

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 very soon. Sharon would like to move to a quieter flat.

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 O Happy Day

  

Scripture Reading Acts 12 v.1 -19 Peter’s miraculous escape from prison.

  

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. Give thanks that  Dr. Nigel Speight has had all charges against him dropped; pray that he can continue to practise freely again without restraint. Please also pray that Karina Hansen is safe in her home from ever being sectioned again. 

  

Prayer for each other and anyone else who comes to mind   Please also pray for the trustees of the Grace Charity for M.E. : for David as he recovers from a shoulder operation; also for John ‘s health and for Catherine’s colitis which has gone on for over 11 years now.  Thank you. Give thanks for God’s strength through it all.

  

Hymn Crown Him with many crowns


                                      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
