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.

Father I pray in your precious sons name Jesus that you will be with all these people who have chronic diseases, bless them Lord and give them the grace to with stand all that they have to go through. Father I know not most of their problems but I know that whatever the problem is you can take care of it. Lord you know that I know how they feel for I have the end lung stage of emphysema, and its hard to deal with. Lord you know there are times I do ok and times I can't even get out of bed so I know some of what these people are going through. Its an everyday struggle but thank God your Grace is sufficient to supply all our needs. Lord I thank you for giving me this Grace and ask you to bestow it upon all others in this prayer circle.

Father God, I would like to pray for the pray circle. I would like to pray for healing. I would like to pray for comfort for hurting hearts. I would like pray for strength to keep going everyday to each of these men and women. Lord I know it is hard because you often want to reach out and do something and you can not. Give me the strength to accept the things I can not change. Give my grandmother strength when dialysis beats her down, give my best friend strength when her aches and pains get her down from Rheumatoid Arthritis. I pray for my Church member who has cervical cancer and is still taking care of her five children. Give her strength, courage, and wisdom to continue on. My prayer for myself is that you just let me be a blessing to someone else. I must say thank you for a new job. I pray I can keep it and I stay healthy. In Jesus I pray AMEN

I am new here, and ask that someone here prays for me. I have uterine fibroid tumors that have left me with serious complications. I have no health insurance, and what medication I was on previously left me sicker.
Please pray for me. I am so scared that this will lead to infertility, which would be even worse that the pain. Please pray for me. Thank you, and thank you God for helping me find this site. Amen

I would like for every one to say a short prayer for me- I suffer from fibromyalgia and the pain that comes with it>emotional pain,physical pain, mental pain, and even spiritual pain. The pain is a vicious circle which never ends, it just keeps going and going and going. Please pray that I can win my case with SSI because I am not able to work. Thank you and may GOD bless you.

I HAVE JUST FOUND THIS PRAYER CIRCLE ON THIS WEBSITE. I SUFFER FROM A CHRONIC PAIN CONDITION. IT IS CALLED: CHRONIC PELVIC PAIN, CAUSED BY, DENSE, MASSIVE PELVIC ADHESIONS, SCAR TISSUE AND ENDEMETROSIS. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL PAIN MANAGEMENT CLINICS IN THE PAST AND THE LAST ONE KICKED ME OUT. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT ON 3/19/02. PLEASE PRAY FOR ME THAT I WILL GET THE MEDICATION THAT I NEED TO SURVIVE AND HAVE MY, "QUALITY OF LIFE" BACK, TO PERFOEM MY JOB DUTIES.
I ALSO ASK OF YOU TO PLEASE PRAY FOR MY FATHER, AS HE DOES NOT TRULY UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH; BEING A WOMAN AND ALL. I AM A ROMAN CATHOLIC AND THAT IS WHAT I BELIEVE IN. MY FATHER, IS A "BOEN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN", WHICH I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT HE ALWAYS TURNS HIS BACK ON ME!
I ALSO ASK FOR PRAYER FROM YOU, THAT I FIND THE RIGHT SURGEON TO REMOVE ALL OF THESE ADHESION'S, SO AT LEAST I CANB HAVE POSSABLY 10-20 YEARS OF PAIN-FREE LIFESTYLE, BUT I KNOW IN MY HEART , THAT THIS CONDITION WILL ALWAYS BE WITH ME FOREVER.
I TRUST IN THE LORD, THAT HE WILL GUIDE & PROTECT ME THROUGH OUT THIS ENTIRE CHRONIC CONDITION THAT I HAVE NOW AND FOREVER.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONCERN, BY READING THIS AND I KNOW THAT I HAVE A GUARDIAN ANGEL RIGHT BY MY SIDE!
THANK YOU & GOD BLESS ALL!!!!!

Chrissy, I am praying for you.....Your words touched my heart and soul. i, too, had endometreiosis. i suffered for 20 years and thru 17 surgeries. I went to a fertility specialist and did get pregnant! It was after a year of being a guina pig for the fda on a study for a new drug that had not been approved yet and it worked! It is called Lupron and now it is approved and widely used as a treatment for endo. IThat was 10 years ago. I had an ovary removed and still got pregnant a second time 3 years later. The ironic thing is that i finally had a complete hysterectomy in May of 1999 and it was not due to endo.....It was pelvis relaxation! I had over 150 sutures inside as they had to tack everything else up, back bowel wall, bladder, the whole nine years.....The sad thing is I have no female parts and yet I still suffer with chronic pelvic pain! If I knew now what I knew then, I would never have had the surgery........My suggestion is to see no Dr. except one that is profeesionally called a "fertility specialist" and to find a Dr. that does "alternative medicine". I too had no insurance, but was able to find drs. that could help me.....Just by looking and searching and not giving up. i live in montana and had to drive to denver,co. a thousand miles away, once a month, to be on the fDA study(they gave me $200 a month to make the drive), and all treatment was free. It was a university hospital that is there for learning......There are ways to find what you need, IF you can keep on trucking and have faith. Sometimes it is so hard to keep going, but......
I hear it will be worth it in the end.....
Angelsherry, where are you? i miss hearing from you and seeing you on this sight! I signed up for the group but haven't heard anything back. What is up? i miss you!
I am still waiting to hear from you, Dolphin! You are always in my prayers as I am very gratefull to you for making this sight available to all the rest of us!
Thank you, Lord, for the people you have put in my life recently, and for their faith.....It got me over this last struggle in life as you knew it would! I am sorry for being so angry with you, and questioning, But God, I know you undeerstand and havs NEVER abandoned me! Thank you for life!!!

Dear Lord:

I am in continual pain both physically and emotionally. The emotional pain is in fact caused by the physical pain. I cannot find the foods that I can eat that do not exasperate the physical pain. Please help me find a source for this food so that I am not stuck eating foods that cause a allergic reaction by increasing my physical pain.

Lord I also pray for all the others that have asked for prayer for their physical disabilites that you will give them comfort and ease their suffering and if that is not possible please give them your peace to know that this is your perfect will for them right now and that it is for your glory for right now.

I pray that God will bring healing and take away the pain of everyone suffering from chronic diseases. I also ask that you pray for my son who is HIV positive and very depressed. It is hard on our whole family to live with this disease knowing that at some point he will no longer be with us. I pray for every family facing the same problems.

I suffer from Fibromyalgia,Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue, PTSD, depression, pyriformis syndrome, and SI joint dysfunction. People look at me and think I am healthy because they can't see these diseases, or the unrelenting pain and fatigue that I go through 24/7. I have been fighting for my disability since 1998, and I need it desparately. I thank each of you for your prayers and thoughts, and I am thankful that I have a place to go to for support. God Bless each of you.

Hi Prayer Circle....It is I again. Silverlobo4, I hear you and understand. You will be in my prayers always, as well as everyone else in this prayer circle. I too have Fibro, CFS, Myofacial Pain, PTSD, TMJ, chronic back pain, pelvic relaxation,irratable bowel syndrome, spastic colon.I also have tendonitis and so much more that is associated with fibro that I can't remember all until I once again suffer from whatever it is that decides to flare up at the time. I am bipolar. I am also an addict that is most of the time in recovery although that is very hard to do. (stay in recovery and not look for an escape from the pain, either physical or mental or emotional.
It is a tough life to live!!!! But this is what God has given me and I guess He has given me the tools to get through it with dignity. And Grace. Those are the things that I am just learning in my life and my attitude is better. My children (6 and 9) have a better life because I turned to God as well. I am also a single mother and live on ss disability.
I am limited depending on what I am experiencing on the activities that I can do, as you know. I often feel as though my children would be better off with a "normal" parent, however, God gave them to me to raise in His image, and I am doing the best that I can, trying to stay gratefull for what I have, rather than resentfull for the life of pain and suffering that I am faced with. I do know that support and prayer help tremendously. I know that a gratefull attitude helps. I also know that a peacefull and stress-free, serene life makes a difference with my pain. When I am emotionally upset, or stressed, I feel so much more pain. I have learned that if I work on the inside, the outside gets better.
I also watch my diet carefully, take a ton of vitamins each and every day. I go to physical therapy 3 times a week and also a chiropractor 3 times a week, whether I feel good enough to go or not. I see my dr. every month as well. I read as much as I can on my diseases and try to stay in control(with God)so that I do not become overwhelmed. Winters are hard as I also suffer from SAD and there is not enough light and I get extremely depressed. It is worse on me physically when I am depressed. I pray all the time and I also pray for people who know, understand and their support. That I can easily offer to others.
I am an attractive, thin, 36 year old woman who does NOT "look" disabled and the people that know me(family, even) do not see a severly disabled person. i have been called lazy, a whiner,a hypochondriac, and my family does not even try to support me as they are only concerned with the negative way that it effects them. As time goes on, though, they are beginning to "get it".
My only continual support has been God, when I am not busy thinking He has abandoned me or blaming Him......
Thank you for posting and Thank you, God, for bringing more and more to this sight for all of us who need the understanding. I have seen Your miracles, God, and proof is right here in this sight. The more we all asked for people who understand and for support, the more people You bring to this prayer circle. Thank you, Lord, for the support!

Thank you, Jesus Christ, for your salvation and gift of life, which equals forgiveness for us all!!!!
Your sacrifice of the the only thing left you had to give(your life) was the ultimate, and deserves my gratitude and awe each and every day!

I pray for acceptence of your will for us all, dear Lord! Only you know why we must suffer so and it is through your grace that we can endure the pain of our lives. I pray for knowledge and strangth, god, so that I may live my life to the fullest and with gratefullness. I pray that i can gain the wisdom needed to maintain my health with the clues that you give through others who suffer with the ailments and through the wisdom of the medical profeesion. I pray that I can follow the wise words of others and do the best I can to take care of myself.

I ask, you, God, to help to put reminders in my life to remember to talk continue to talk to you through out the day..........

Hello and thank God for this site. I've had type 1 Sugar Diabetes since I was 16 months of age in 1963. I have also developed high blood pressure. Due to years of medical bills I could not cover I'm going bankrupt unless the Lord intervenes with a miracle. Ontop of this the Lord is calling me into missionary work with Mercy Ships as soon as I raise the support I need.The book A More Excellent Way may help all of us. It has with me in dealing with my condition and touches on many of your prayer concers. God Bless and I hope this helps.

I am in desperate need of prayers once again. I haven't been here in quite awhile, but I am glad this prayer circle is still here. I may need a bypass in my right leg now. As some of you know, I already had four bypasses done on my left leg and then had to have it amputated in 1999. I am still trying to deal with that. For those of you who dont know, I have a circulatory disease called PVD, {Peripheal Vascular Disease}, a blood clotting disorder. I keep getting these flashbacks back to 1999 because to me, bypass=amputation. I can barely walk on my right foot due to the pain I get in my calf area. I am supposed to be getting baptized on 3/30 and I want to be up and walking. I have the okay from my surgeon to keep going to Catechism classes and then to mass afterwards. It's not easy trying to walk with the prosthetic leg I already have because of my right leg. But I am determined to get baptized with my class. So please, pray for me that I won't need this bypass and hopefully the clot can just be removed. You can email me at pezziepaddlesny@webtv.net. I can use the uplifting of my brothers and sisters prayers.

Thank you and God Bless you all.

I have another freind who is working part time only. He suffers from depression, is overweight, and chronic chest pains. His marriage is suffering.
