We are in need of more people to pray for M.E. sufferers, especially as our trustee David Laker has passed away. David did much of the praying. Please contact us if you’d like to pray.
Are you an M.E. sufferer who would like prayer?
If so, 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 the next Grace Prayers (below) which takes place each month. 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.
For where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them. – Matthew 18:20 NIV
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. If you like, we can send out prayer cards to you with names of sufferers on.
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.

Karen (updated February 2022)
Please keep a lady called Karen in your prayers. She is home after a lengthy hospital stay. Her particular needs are for specialist carers, her catheter to stop blocking, and the great need to put on weight again because a drug which previously helped has been stopped. Karen also requests prayer that she would not get an infection in her PICC line which is a tube going straight to her heart. Karen has had severe M.E. for many years and also has Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
Please pray for Karen’s family as they have recently suffered a close bereavement.
Please pray for Juliet who has extreme Electro Sensitivity. She needs somewhere safe, warm and free of wifi. Juliet needs to avoid all wifi including smartphones. Please pray for her healing and more permanent, satisfactory accommodation. Thank you.
Please pray for Janet, for healing of her pain, relief of isolation and loneliness. Also, for better, more understanding carers. Thank you.

Graceprayers September 17th 2023
How do we know God’s guidance for our lives? It doesn’t have to be in complicated matters but even for simple things. Probably the best guidance is to experience the peace of Christ, which is different to our peace, as it’s from another world (John 14 v.27). We can ask Jesus to give us His peace. Even if the choices are all good paths to take, all with good outcomes, we still need His guidance. Putting Christ at the centre of the choices and asking the Holy Spirit to guide us can also be helpful. The Holy Spirit also convicts, which is a form of prompting which way we should take.
Open in prayer Dear Lord, Guide us in prayer, Lead us in love, Fill us with hope, Bless us with peace. Amen From Unstoppable Spirit by Greg and Linda Crowhurst www.holyway.co.uk

Scripture reading John 16 v.5 -16 The Holy Spirit guides us into all truth
Recent prayer requests Our charity will now pray for several M.E. sufferers who have contacted us in the last month, often globally. Please continue to pray for Christine and her family, Keren and her husband Rowan. Please pray for Sharon who would like a detached bungalow in a non-polluted area; that her neighbours are quieter and that she gets a PA along with housing support, personal care and a good new GP. Also, please pray that she is protected from going to hospital and ultimately that these sufferers are healed from M.E.
Please also continue to pray for Linda and Greg. Please pray for quiet neighbours and that jets cease flying over their home. Linda is severely ill and has extreme noise sensitivity which triggers paralysis. Please pray that the Lord will heal Linda from the noise sensitivity, severe chemical sensitivity, paralysis, migraines and disabling catarrhal problems.
We continue to pray for Jacqui, asking that she knows God’s love and care. Please pray for healing of her symptoms of POTS and severe pain, from both M.E. and other abdominal pain. Please pray for quiet neighbours in the flats where she lives. Please also pray for peace, strength and healing in Jacqui’s life; a quiet place to live and good carers and GP for her. Please also pray for Sue, a severe M.E. sufferer, who has been badly treated by her local council. She is afraid of eviction so please pray she stays where she is and is protected from harm. Thank you.
Hymn Be Still and Know that I am God Be Still and Know (with lyrics) – The most Peaceful Hymn – YouTube by Rosemary Siemans
Proverbs 3 v. 5-6 ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.’
Psalm 119 v.105 ‘Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.’
Psalm 32 v.8 ‘I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.’
Isaiah 30 v.21 ‘And your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it, when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.’
Persistent prayers This is when we pray for a number of M.E. sufferers on an ongoing basis who need a deeper level of persistent prayer for the circumstances in their lives.
Prayer for M.E. researchers, doctors and M.E. politics Please pray for all M.E. researchers and doctors who bravely work towards the truth of M.E.: for their safety, protection and continuing of their valuable work without hindrance. Please especially pray for Dr. Sarah Myhill and the unkind media reports; also, that she can expose the prejudice of the GMC towards her. Please also pray that the World Health Organisation’s entry of M.E. is kept as neurological and not transferred to mental health in the forthcoming reprint. Also, if you feel able to, pray for those who persecute M.E. sufferers, that they would come to accept the truth. Praise God that the NICE Guidelines have omitted CBT and GET as cures from their new guidance. Please pray that the Royal Colleges fail with their desire to promote exercise for M.E. sufferers.
Please also pray about The Grace Charity’s petition against the book Kumar and Clark’s Clinical medicine which has unkind and unscientific teaching about ME/CFS.
Prayer for each other and anyone else who comes to mind Please pray for Monica Laker and Rob and Matt due to the recent death of our trustee David Laker. Also for John’s health, especially wisdom for decisions regarding his heart and for Catherine’s colitis which has gone on for 18 years now. We give thanks for God’s strength through it all. We also give thanks for a recent press coverage of Catherine’s mother’s case. Please pray that good will flourish from this for the benefit of the vulnerable https://www.kentonline.co.uk/ashford/news/doctors-indefensible-decisions-before-death-of-much-loved-285176/?fbclid=IwAR106TmITKSJXbLqYgNG2ZarNo0d1610Rn0ZVlrqpN_0NzW0umpTm2-BPjM
Please also pray for peaceful neighbours around us. Thank you. Please pray that John sells more art work, the proceeds of which go to the Grace Charity for M.E. (We are grateful that he sold a painting through Saatchi online.)
Hymn My hope is built on nothing less
My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less – YouTube sung by Sovereign Grace Music
Blessing Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change, He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heav’nly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joy
Words by Katharina von Schlegel
