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 Sundays at 3pm.  Future services will continue on 9 October and 13 November.

Harvest

 

Church services will be celebrating Harvest Festivals in coming weeks. At times it is difficult for M.E. sufferers to be thankful about anything as their lives are so difficult. Also, they might feel that that their lives are not producing much ‘fruit’, e.g. loss of career, relationships, health etc. We are reminded at Harvest that every good gift comes from God; let us use this service to think of anything at all/or anyone to be thankful for. If this isn’t possible, let us thank God for the certainty of Heaven which we will experience at His chosen time.

 

Open in prayer, thinking of something to thank God for

Reading   meditation on James 1 v. 17 & 18

 

Hymn   We plough the fields and scatter

 

Refrain: All good gifts around us are sent from Heaven above

Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord for all His love

 

 

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.

 

 

Reading  The above meditation in its entire context, James 1v1-17

 

Hymn Give thanks with a grateful heart

 

Persistent prayers

 

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.

 

 

Meditation from scripture: Habakkuk 3 v.17 & 18

 

Though the fig-tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines,

The produce of the olive fail  and the fields yield no food,

The flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls,

Yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.

 

 

Hymn Great is thy faithfulness
