|| 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.)
If you are an M.E. sufferer and would like to receive prayer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.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
If you would like to pray for M.E. sufferers, contact us at email@example.com and we will send you one or two names of sufferers who want prayer. We will need your postal address for this as we like to send out prayer cards.
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 12 July 2015
EMPATHY WITH GOD IN SUFFERING
This Graceprayers, we will look at how God Himself suffered and still suffers, therefore bringing us comfort through His understanding. His promise is, though, that we won’t be tested beyond what we can bear; also, that He works for good in all things for those who love Him.
Meditation Then I think of the cross and picture your swollen eyes,
amongst your own anguish I hear my desperate cries.
Reflections of my suffering I now see in your own,
for the first time I realise I’m at last not alone.
I’ve found where you are God, I’ve found where you are,
you’re here with me in my pain, ‘cause you suffered just the same.
It is now I sense your comfort, it is now I feel you near me
And finally with you I now find empathy.
(From Where have you gone God? by C.Ashenfelter)
Prayer Tell God how you feel. Thank Him that He understands. Ask for His comfort in suffering and thank Him if you’ve had a good week.
Hymn And Can It Be
Reading Philippians 3 v.1 – 11 (Sharing in the sufferings of Christ)
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 and that of Mirjam Knapp’s.
Hymn I need thee every hour
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. Linda is ultra noise sensitive from the M.E. Thank you.
Reading Revelation 21 v.1 -4 (Future deliverance from suffering)
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 over a year ago. Also for John ‘s health and for Catherine’s colitis which has gone on for 10 years now. Thank you. Give thanks for God’s strength through it all.
Hymn Like a river glorious
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)
