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 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
We are thrilled to hear that prayers for both Karina Hansen (Denmark) and Mirjam Knapp (Germany) have been answered: both have been released from hospital sectioning, and are happily returned home!
We give thanks that Dr. Nigel Speight has had all charges against him dropped and his case closed by the GMC, as from 14 July 2017. He has been completely vindicated, and has no restrictions!
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 August 13th, September 10th, and October 8th.
GRACEPRAYERS SEPTEMBER 10TH 2017
This Graceprayers we will dwell on praying intensely for Sharon, a severe M.E. sufferer in England. We’ve been praying for Sharon regularly at Graceprayers over the last months but her situation is worsening. Her circumstances do seem to respond well to prolonged, persistent prayer. Having lots of people pray for her at one time is reminiscent of disciples praying for Peter’s release from jail in the Bible (Acts 12 v.12)
Let us open in prayer with a prayer from Linda Crowhurst from Stonebird
Lord, in all things I trust you
When fear overwhelms me I turn to you
When doubt assails me I turn to you
When peace is lost I turn to you
When anxieties mob me I turn to you
When pain oppresses me I turn to you
When worries betray me I turn to you
Lord, in all things I am held by You.
Taize Chant O Lord hear our prayer
Scripture Readings Matthew 18 v. 19 – 20 Jesus says that where two or three are gathered in His name, He is present with them
Mark 11 v. 20 – 25 Jesus says to believe and not doubt when you ask him
Let us now ask God to act in the following areas of Sharon’s life:
Please pray that Sharon is healed physically from severe M.E. and other health problems
Please pray for peace and quiet where she lives
Please pray for better support from doctors, social workers and therapists; that they would believe Sharon and act with adequate support
Please pray that Sharon isn’t tested beyond what she can bear; that God delivers her from emotional and mental distress due to her current lack of support and disbelief from those meant to be helping her
Please pray for Sharon’s protection from all harm
Give thanks to God for hearing these prayers and acting; pray that evil flees from Sharon’s life and doesn’t return
Recent prayer requests Our charity will now pray for several M.E. sufferers who have contacted us in the last month, often globally.
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 and also paralysis. Thank you.
We add Jacqui in England to our prayers, asking God for a positive breakthrough for her this year. She has had long-term severe M.E.
Hymn Jesus name above all names
Scripture Readings 2 Timothy 2 v13 God is faithful when others are faithless
1 Corinthians 10 v13 God won’t let us be tested beyond what we can bear (the word ‘tempted’ is sometimes translated as ‘tested’)
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.
Prayer for each other and anyone else who comes to mind Please pray for the trustees of the Grace Charity for M.E. : give thanks that David has recovered from a shoulder operation; also for John ‘s health and for Catherine’s colitis which has gone on for over 12 years now. We give thanks for God’s strength through it all. Please also pray for quiet neighbours around us. Thank you.
Hymn Thou whose almighty word (let there be light)
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
