| This prayer page serves a double purpose.
If you are an M.E. sufferer and would like to receive prayer, please contact us at email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
GRACEPRAYERS FOR M.E. AWARENESS WEEK MAY 11TH – 17TH 2016
This Graceprayers, we will focus on asking God to release Karina Hansen in Denmark. We focused on both her and Miriam Knapp (Germany) last year; thankfully, Mirjiam is now home but tragically Karina is still in a mental unit.
Introduction: Thank God for all the M.E. Awareness throughout the world this week. Pray that the truth will not evaporate but will stay and make a change.
HYMN: I need thee every hour
Reading: ACTS 12 v.1-18 Peter’s miraculous escape from jail
Long my imprisoned spirit lay fast bound in sin and nature’s night
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray – I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free.
I rose, went forth and followed thee.
Charles Wesley (from the hymn ‘And Can It Be’)
Please now focus on Karina Hansen (Denmark) who was sectioned over 3 years ago and forced to undergo psychotherapy treatment against her wishes. The sectioning has impeded upon human rights legislation. Please pray that Karina is released imminently; also please pray for her health and her family.
HYMN: O Lord hear our prayer
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.
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.
Reading: SAMUEL 17 v.20-58 David and Goliath
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 this month 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: And can it be
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)
