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 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
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.
Next Grace Prayers: Sunday 9 February
Grace Prayers is a monthly service, where we invite others to join in from afar. We thank you for your prayers on behalf of ourselves, and for the sufferers and carers who contact us.
Graceprayers January 12th 2020
Divine Hope in being rescued
This Graceprayers has been brought to us by Jacqui. The hope of being rescued is something longed for by M.E. sufferers and this is inspired by the passage in Acts when the apostle Peter was sleeping in prison, imprisoned for his faith in Christ. It was whilst people were praying for him from afar that an angel came to him with a miraculous release from jail. Out of nowhere came rescue. Even receiving the peace and strength to continue living with M.E. can be seen as a form of hope and rescue.
We praise you Lord and thank you for amazing things happen when we place our Trust in You! by Linda Crowhurst www.holyway.co.uk
Hymn And can it be
(Verse 4: I woke, the dungeon flamed with light; my chains fell off, my heart was free. I rose went forth and followed Thee.)
Scripture reading Acts 12 v.1-11 Peter’s miraculous escape from jail
Prayer for those who persecute M.E. sufferers If you feel able to, please pray for people in the medical profession, government and individual people known to you who are negatively affecting M.E. sufferers. There are many ways to pray for them: one way might be to hold a cross in your hand and say specific names or just to generalise.
Recent prayer requests Our charity will now pray for several M.E. sufferers who have contacted us in the last month, often globally. 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, 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; also 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.
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.
Hymn The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
Scripture reading Lamentations 3 v.22-26, 55-58 God takes up our case
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 2020.)
Pray for the revision of the NICE guideline for CFS/ME, due to be published in 2020. Pray that Graded Exercise and CBT are no longer recommended and that helpful biomedical treatments are offered. Also, that the selected panel is not prejudiced towards psychiatric/psychological treatments.… .
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 14 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 which he is fundraising for the Grace Charity for M.E.
