For those with chronic diseases and illnesses
Chronic Diseases Prayer Circle

This circle is for all who suffer with chronic diseases and disorders and in need of prayer and support from others.

There are many who are afflicted with chronic diseases such as lupus, MS, fibromylagia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome and others, or may have children or other family members and friends who suffer with these conditions. The prayer circle can be here for the many ups and downs that come with these illnesses, as well as the tests that most have to go through when having a flare or time of activity in their symptoms. This can be a place to come for prayers when support is needed and also to give thanks and praise to God for remissions and times that we feel well.

Dear Heavenly Father....In the name of Jesus, I lift up my friend, Barb, to you in prayer. The strong, yet graceful way she lives her life is a witness to all who know her. Her dedication to helping others is an inspiration! She has suffered greatly in her life and continues to battle MS and lung disease. I know, dear Lord, that you don't cause these terrible things, and that you weep with us and give strength to make it through another day. Continue to hold on tight to Barb and to all others who suffer from illness! In the name of Jesus, we accept your promise to be with us always.....AMEN

Please add my nephew Stephen to your prayers that the Lord will help heal him from the seizures he suffers on a daily basis. 'he has had them since he was 5 but, now that he is a teen is now becoming more frequent. May God heal him from the inside out, for his self-esteem is as damage as his insides.

For my sister who has endured the hardships that has come from helping him with these seizures.

Thank you in advance for all your prayers

Praying for all of you and yours....I am new to this site and living with several chronic diseases, taking more prescriptions than is almost bearable, and now having to find a new primary care doctor that God willing will allow me to continue with references to my urologist and gynecologist with whom I am so comfortable. They are Christians...and loving and caring. I have found it difficult to find a primary care physician that is Christian that my insurance covers. I have Interstitial cystitis, urethritis, pelvic floor disorder, bladder outlet obstruction, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Hypothyroidism. I just recovered from several surgeries, no more cancer. Praise God. Am scheduled for another surgery that will block the nerve in my back that leads to the bladder. Although I am totally incontinent, I have drastic pain and am on many painkillers. I just got married only 7 months ago, and have gained 70 pounds due to illness. I am 37 years old. I don't get online very often, and if any of you would like to carry on a prayer chain with me, please email me at
Your sister in Christ, Angie

I would like to ask for prayers for my eight-year old daughter, Marisa (Missy) who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis last year. I am fortunate and blessed that her case appears to be milder than many, though she has had to have three surgeries so far. Prayers are needed for all the children and young adults with Cystic Fibrosis, and also for the continued progress towards a cure for this difficult and life-shortening genetic disease. My prayers are with all who live with chronic illness. God bless us all in Jesus' name, Amen.

I ask your prayers and thoughts for my niece Christina. She was born 17 years ago with spina bifida, and despite numerous operations, has lived an extraordinary life. In the last month, she has endured 3 surgeries to drain fluid from a clogged shunt. On Monday, 11/12, she came home from high school, not feeling well. Another trip to the doctor, and surgery scheduled for yesterday afternoon. This brave girl went to class yesterday morning, and had the operation in the afternoon. But this time, she suffered a seizure following the procedure, and is now in grave condition. Please join our family in prayer for this young, beautiful soul to recover from this latest blow. Our prayers go out to and for all of you in this, our hour of need. Holy Mary, St. Jude, St. Christopher and all the angels and saints, Pray for us!
