|| 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. Include your postal address for this as we like to send out prayer cards.
Please keep Karina Hansen (Denmark) and Mirjam Knapp (Germany) in your prayers. Both young women have been sectioned and forced to undergo inappropriate treatment for M.E. Please pray for their release and safe return 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 be Oct 11, Nov 8, and Dec 13.
Graceprayers 6 Sept 2015
GOD AS OUR FRIEND
M.E. can cause stifling loneliness and isolation for both sufferer and carer. How wonderful, then, that God calls us His friends!
Open In prayer:Think of something to thank God for as your friend. If you’re especially lonely, ask God to draw close to you right now.
Our human friends can often let us down. God has promised to always be with us.
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13 v.5
“If we are faithless, he remains faithful – for he cannot deny Himself,” 2 Timothy 2 v. 13
Hymn: What a friend we have in Jesus
Reading: James 2 v.14-26, ABRAHAM AS GOD’S FRIEND (v. 23)
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: How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
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. Please pray that the Lord will heal her from this distressing symptom. Thank you.
Reading: John 15 v. 9-17 JESUS CALLS THE DISCIPLES HIS FRIENDS.
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: O Jesus I have promised
Blessing: The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord make His face to shine upon you
And be gracious to you

Upon you and give you peace.
