Prayer


Are you an M.E. sufferer who would like prayer?

If so, 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 the next Grace Prayers (below) which take 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 info@thegracecharityforme.org 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 with their names.

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.

 

Holyway by Greg and Linda Crowhurst www.holyway.co.uk is a creative site full of prayers and spiritual writings. Linda has profoundly severe M.E. and Greg is her husband and carer. Linda has a blog at  Holy Way (holywayjournal.blogspot.com)

 

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 Keren’s family as they have recently suffered a close bereavement. 

Juliet

Please pray for Juliet who has extreme Electro Sensitivity.  She is currently homeless, living in a tent to avoid wifi and smartphones.  Please pray for her healing and a positive way forward.

 

Janet

Please pray for Janet, for healing of her pain, relief of isolation and loneliness. Also, for better, more understanding carers. Thank you.

Graceprayers  May 8th 2022

God never forsakes us

Next week 9-15th May is M.E Awareness Week. Although the recent NICE guidelines no longer promoting Graded Exercise and CBT are very welcome, there is still no medical cure. So many sufferers have endured M.E. for so long now. This is a time not just for M.E. Awareness but also to encourage each other in our sufferings (Greek word pathos, for empathy and sympathy.) It is wonderful that God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us.

 

Open in prayer No matter how difficult no matter how big our problems seem, help us to cling to the truth that there is always a way forward with you Lord. Amen. Unstoppable Spirit by Greg and Linda Crowhurst. www.holyway.co.uk

Verses: ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ (Hebrews 13 v.5, words spoken by the Lord)

‘And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’ (Matthew 28 v.20, words spoken by Jesus)

Scriptures

 Isaiah 43 v.1-3  The Lord promises that He will be with us through the flames, the waters and rivers. He will not allow us to be consumed or overwhelmed by them.

Psalm 107 v.23-31 People cried to the Lord and He delivered them from their distress

 

 

Recent prayer requests Our charity will now pray for several M.E. sufferers who have contacted us in the last month, often globally.  Give thanks that Christine is out of hospital after more than 20 months. Please pray for her healing and for her family; also for good medical support.

We praise God that Keren and Rowan have found a new quiet, rural home! Keren has severe M.E. and Rowan is unwell too. Please pray for their healing, especially exhaustion from the move. 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 Sharon and Keren 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. Please continue to pray that Linda doesn’t deteriorate again, as she 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. Thank you.

We pray for Jacqui, asking God for a positive breakthrough for her this year as things have worsened of late. Please pray for healing of her symptoms of POTS and severe pain, from both M.E. and recent abdominal pain.  She has had long-term severe M.E. Please pray that the new neighbour above her is quiet, and for wisdom and a way forward if Jacqui should move.  Please pray for peace, strength and healing in Jacqui’s life and good carers and GP for her.

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.

 

Scripture  Psalm 46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble

 

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 biomedical M.E.: for their safety, protection and continuing of their valuable work without hindrance. 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.  

 

Prayer for each other and anyone else who comes to mind   Please pray for the trustees of the Grace Charity for M.E.: for David and Monica; also for John’s health especially wisdom for decisions regarding his heart and for Catherine’s colitis which has gone on for 17 years now.  We give thanks for God’s strength through it all. Please pray that good will flourish from Catherine ‘s mother’s case for the benefit of the vulnerable www.thegracecharityforme.org/hazel-and-the-lcp  Please also pray for peaceful neighbours around us.  Thank you.  Please pray that John sells more art work, the proceeds of which go to fundraising for the Grace Charity for M.E.

Blessing   A House Prayer

Heavenly Father, please walk through the homes of all M.E. sufferers and take away all worries, sadness, financial crisis, illness and please watch over and heal them. Please bring quiet where there is disturbance; light where is darkness and your love in their homes. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
