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. 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!

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

Please keep a lady called Karen in your prayers. We haven’t heard for awhile how she is but the last we heard was that she was hospitalised and in great need of putting on weight. She also requested 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.

Graceprayers   April 11th 2021

Following the Resurrection:  Now what?

 

Last week Christians celebrated Easter, perhaps more accurately described as Resurrection Day.  We celebrate the empty cross, the empty shroud, the empty tomb.  We may take joy, as the disciples did, that our Saviour is bodily alive today in Heaven, and has promised to return, to set up His reign of peace on earth.  Perhaps more than anyone, M.E. sufferers long for a new body like His; but in the meantime, we can try to focus on the spiritual renewal that Easter brings:  through prayer, encouragement, and in displaying agape love in Christ to others, despite tremendous suffering. 

 

Open in prayer   Let us give glory to God indeed who fills the world with love, if only we can see.  Let us give praise and speak of His goodness.  He is worthy of glory.  Praise God forever.  Amen. From the book Unstoppable Spirit by Greg Crowhurst. Prayer by Linda & Greg Crowhurst  www.holyway.co.uk

 

Hymn   I Serve a Risen Saviour

 

Scripture Reading    II Corinthians 4:7-18    Though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day [v.16]

 

Recent prayer requests Our charity will now pray for several M.E. sufferers who have contacted us in the last month, often globally.

Please especially pray for Christine who is enduring terrible distress in a Lancashire NHS hospital where her illness is not being believed; we thank God that she has started to see her family – please pray this continues.  Thank you.

We also pray for Keren and Rowan; for energy to deal with moving and a decent place to move into – somewhere flat and accessible, ideally an adapted bungalow. Keren has severe M.E.; please pray for her healing. Likewise, please pray for Sharon who would also like a detached, adapted bungalow in a non-polluted area; that her neighbours are quieter and that she gets a good PA with housing support and personal care. 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, from severe chemical sensitivity, paralysis and disabling catarrhal problems.  Thank you.

We pray for Jacqui, asking God for a positive breakthrough for her this year, including her symptoms of POTS and general severe pain. She has had long-term severe M.E. We give thanks that a reasonably quiet neighbour has moved in above her but we pray that this would continue to be the case long-term. Please pray for peace, strength and healing in Jacqui’s life and good carers and GP for her.

 

Hymn  He is Lord, He is Lord, He is risen from the dead and He is Lord

 

Scripture reading   Revelation 5: 7-14    The song of praise to the Lamb in Heaven

 

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 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 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 (due this year 2021.)  Also, if you feel able to, pray for those who persecute M.E. sufferers, that they would come to accept the truth.

Pray for the revision of the NICE guideline for CFS/ME, that the recent wonderful news of the removal of Graded Exercise and CBT as ‘cures’ will be carried into the final guidelines this August 2021. Please continue to pray these guidelines reflect truth and will help 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 16 years now.  We give thanks for God’s strength through it all. Please continue to pray that the press will report her mother’s case for the benefit of the vulnerable www.thegracecharityforme.org/hazel-and-the-lcp  Please also pray for quiet 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.

 

Hymn   You are the King of Glory

 

The Blessing

 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)
