Prayer

This prayer page serves a double purpose.

Prayer

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 othersPraying 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.  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

 

GRACEPRAYERS SEPTEMBER 10TH 2017

 

SHARON

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.

Amen

 

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)

 

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
