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.

For jlheard,
I am so terribly sorry about your pain. I can relate so well. You sound so depressed today! The more you hurt, the closer God is to you. Ask Him to heal you and if it is His will for you to continue in this pain, then ask Him to give you the strength to bear the pain. He will do it, jl. You may need something of a pain killer, jl. Why do we suffer?? God has very good reasons, jl. I offer all my pain for the sinners in this world that they should convert. Pray for sinners every day. Do not waste your pain, jl. Offer it to God and join Him at the cross. You keep your chin up, jl.

My husband,the love of my life is in end stage liver cancer and HepC. Please add him to your prayers so that the suffering will ease and he can endure the time he has left. Docs say 6 mos or less. Pray that I will have the strength to stand by his side and help in any way that he needs. In God's name I pray that that the transition from this life to the next will be as painless as possible. May he join my parents as my guardian angels.

Hi. Well, I never did go to the Dr. I took the pain pills I had, some muscles relaxers, tylenol and some doan's pm and ended sleeping the whole day and night. I am depressed but not as far down as I was... I do offer my pain to God on a minute to minute basis and to no avail. I want to know why must we suffer so? And if I can't have the answers, then just make it stop! I know that I am not the only one living like this but I sure feel alone. My spouse, well, I won't even go there. I pray for compassion for him, Lord!!!!!!I'm thinking and praying for you all....(still waiting to hear from you, Dolphin....and you too again, ANGEL, of mine)

jlheard I am always near as the computer. I am sorry that you had to go through the pain as we all are. I am so glad for this prayer circle that God can work but unfortunately its in all of God's time. I can only try to encourage whom he brings to me and my heart cries for you jlheard and I only know prayer works just not when we want it. Lord, I pray for jlheard that you and all that are like us in the pain we go through that you would give us just one day pain free. eventually we can be totally pain free with you. Right now Lord shine through me and help me to lift up jlheard and the pain she has and ask that you will ease it and make life bearable but most of all that you would heal her and give her a remission. I cry out to you to fill us with your spirit and give our hearts and minds peace. amen

Dear Father God,
I pray for all those who are suffering with bi-polar depression. I am 17 years old and I know the deep pain and agony one suffers with bi-polar. I have been suicidal many times actually tried twice. Lord I pray that for all of us sufferers, that you ease the emotional pain and remove some of the burden. Lord I pray that I personally may be released from the deep anguish of my depression. I have lately been very isolated and withdrawn and father I pray for relief in my time of need.

We ask for special prayer for Paula who suffers from so many chronic illnesses. Her heart is very week and it is racing. We pray that you the giver of all good things will give her the gift of peace during this time. We pray that she has a home in heaven waiting for her. Where this is no more crying, no pain and that you will wipe every tear from her eye. Thank you Jesus, Prince of Peace.

to my jlheard:A Little Angel Love!

If we have faith and love
That we are in God's care,
Then we can believe His angels
Are with us everywhere.

Guardian angels have been sent
To protect us from any harm,
And to teach us about love and peace,
And keep our spirits calm.

You're so very special to me
Each and every day,
That I asked the angels to bring
A little more love your way.

Have A Blessed Day!

My prayer is in thanksgiving for the young man Mattie Stepanek who wrote Journey through Heartsongs with Muscular Dystrophy. He makes you feel Joy, Compassion and Life. God Bless Mattie and Heal him. God's will be done in healing Mattie's mother who suffers from M.S.. May God heal a young man with Cancer named Jason Pierpont because he has music to share with the world. May the Catholic Church include Scripture in the Bible History format on Sundays for children so they learn their Bible. May God strengthen the Music Ministry by allowing more music instruction in the Catholic School for all pupils. Thank you Lord for those persons who give of themselves in choir. Bless those with illnesses affecting their voice and heal those who want to praise you in song. Thank you for religious priests and sisters that teach our young and are in music ministry and service to the church. May the church find more vocations to the religious life. Thank you Lord for the gift of the Holy Rosary to Our Blessed Lady. May we remember that the Wall coming down was a miracle that we witnessed in this lifetime; an answer to a prayer for the conversion of sinners and of Russia promised in the prayer before the Rosary. May we find devotion to Blessed Virgin Mary and pray the Rosary Friday afternoons in all Catholic schools the worldover to bring an end to the war in Afghanistan. Thank you Lord for my loving family. I also thank you for the gift my parents gave me in raising us Catholic. May all Catholics remember Your corporal presence in the Holy Eucharist. May all who are able offer communion daily for world peace, the souls in Purgatory and those who have no one to pray for them. In Jesus Name, I pray. Amen.

To all those living with a disease for life, remember God is the only one that can take you from this earth and not the disease. I am living with Epilepsy which often causes Depression. At this time I pray for my best friend who has Rheumaoid Arthritis border line Lupus at 27 years old. My prayers are for all of you tolive with God's dignity.

2/23/2002 09:59

Yhea right, GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US.....That IS SO HARD FOR ME TO BELIEVE. THE GOD THAT I CAME TO KNOW IS KIND, LOVING, FORGIVING....I guess I came to know the wrong God. The one that is with me is allowing me to suffer, and just watching things get worse and worse. He is NOT protecting me!HE HAS ABANDONED ME!!!!!!

2/23/2002 10:22

pray for my great grandson that has severe spina bifida and his mother.
I have fibromyalgia and I am working at not letting it rule my life. My biggest problem with it is when I have a bad day I am told that it is all in my head and that is frustrating. Pray that I will have more patience with others. i know that God sometimes allows things to come into our life to strengthen and teach us.

2/23/2002 11:09

I hear you jlheard and I know how you feel that God is far away. There are days when I feel know one cares if I am in pain or not. If blaming God is your way to express how you feel I understand. I try to go to bed at night with pain to much that I can't sleep. My doctor gave me a prescription for a medicine that helps me sleep. I guess it is kind of a anti-depression medication that is also used for people who have a hard time sleeping. I pray for sleep as that is the only time I don't feel the pain. God and I came into an understanding. It is that he is in control whether I like it or not and it is only him that can give me good days or bad. He is my saviour and healer and can and will do his wwork through me. When I posted that poem that was sent to me on the prayer circle I put it there for you. If you need to copy it and read it when you are depressed or come to the circle and read it because you are special to me and all the others here at the circle. we have this circle to strengthen each of us and I pray that you receive what I am saying and hold that poem close to your heart. Lord I pray for a release of the pain from jlheard and give her a peace within. The spirit of turmoil and deception has her in a bad place. Lord soothe her heavy soul and bring joy into her life. rebuke any spirits that try to bring her down. She is special Lord and as one of your children she needs you to protect her from harm. Let her see the love that you have for her and the compassion you bring. We hear at the circle love her with your love Lord and we would like her to be free from the spirits that bind her and keep her in this place. amen

I appreciate this website being here. Please add my husband and myself to the prayer list. He has diabetes and is about to have a heart cathiterization. We are praying there will be no blockage in his heart. I have just been diagnosed with chronic Hepatitus B and C. I am trying to make a decision about whether to undergo the interfuron treatments or just leave it up to GOD as to when I might die. The treatments are experimental and less than 30% recover after the treatments. Please pray for us both and we will be praying for all of you out there who are in need of prayer and God's wonderful presence in our lives. Thank You so much.
