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.

As someone living with MS, Fibromyalgia, and Chrohn's Disease, I can empathize with each and every one of you on this site. I have also lost a 13 year old daughter, and it is very hard sometimes. Just because you don't LOOK sick, then the outside world thinks it's all in your head and that you're lazy. There are days when i can't even get out of bed, and then i have good days, and because of this, even my husband thinks i use my "illnesses" just to keep from doing housework and any thing else that he wants to do. Please remember me in your prayers, and i pray that i can soon come off of some of the medicines that i'm on. i feel that i am addicted to pain medicines, because i have to take them continuously just to be able to function, and this is another cause for criticism from my family members. God Bless each of you, and i will pray for each of you in return.

Dear Heavenly Father

I come to you on behalf of all of us who suffer from a chronic illness. Only You know why we were chosen to have these struggles, and only You can help us through them. May we never give up hope, and may we always turn to You for support. You are the great physician! Help us, hear us, and in Your own time, heal us. It's in Your Sons precious name we pray, Amen!

As I continue in faith and prayer for you I am asking for your continued prayers for my husband. He is suffering from diabeties, kidney and liver disease and high blood pressure. He is a young man and very discouraged because he cannot work at the moment to provide for his family. Please pray that he will grow stronger and stronger everyday, not to work, but to bring glory to The Lord for perfoming a Miricle in his life. May your hearts be comforted as you go through this storm. The sun WILL shine in the morning! God Bless and keep you all in the Comfort of HIS arms. Take real good care of yourselves and your loved ones. Thank you for your prayers.

I have so many prayers to say for so many people. I must tell you this, my brother was shot 2 years ago, it was almost fatal and my family and I thought we were truly going to lose him....I brought my Rosary's into the hospital with me one day and went down to the church chapel and said the rosarys everyday twice a day for 3 months in my family and brothers behalf as well as others who where grieving in the hospital. My brother today is alive and healthy as can be. I truly believe all that had happened was because of the power of prayer and those rosarys!! I SWEAR by them. If you have never prayed on the rosarys please do so, they really work and are very powerful. God Bless and my thoughts prayers go out to all of you and your families.

I thank God for small blessings. My grandmother is getting back to have a more normal appetite on the dialysis. I pray for my cousin and her boyfriend. I know she loves him and I know that he thinks he is in control of her and I know that he is not . Not communicating is a very terrible disease. It can lead to some very crossed signals and terrible lies. I pray for my mother who is balancing herself with diabetes. I continue to pray for my friends named Kim. For the rheumatory arthritis and the cancer please keep both of them. Both of them are sick and are in need of prayer. Thank God for my cousin who almost lost his life to liver disease. God spared his life and I hope he begins to realize that. Lastly I pray for myself, I pray my body begins to heal from the surgery and God continue his blessings on every one in this circle who needs love, strength, and healing. In Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

I would like to share this poem that was written by a firend of mine for me, but I feel it would also benefit others dealing with chronic pain.

My friend is burning with a fire from within
And I'd love to find some way to quench
All the pain that she feels every day.
So I go to my knees with my eyes to the sky
And I cry and I beg and I pray.
I fervently hope that each day she'll improve
And her heart will be able to sing
With the joy that she has deep inside of her
And her dreams will finally take wing.
I hope that it will give some strenght to others as it has helped me.

To Marcia.....I THANK GOD THAT YOU HAVE SUCH A WONDERFUL FRIEND TO SUPPORT YOU UNDERSTAND YOU AND YOUR DISEASE.....Lord, There are so many of us out here that do not have that special someone here on earth. I pray, Lord, that you bring each and every one us that special someone here to us, in the flesh, Lord, and that we may have the eyes and ears and wisdom to know who it is and that they are a gift from you, Lord!
Angelsheery, I am so glad that you are doing better!!!!! I, too, am better! I switched Drs. I found someone who truley cares about me( he hugs me when I walk in the door)..I am not just another file to him and he knows fibro on a profeesional level as well as on a personal level as his spouse has fibro as well. I have been so blessed. He changed my medication and I am ssssoooooo much better! The back pain that was disabilitateing me did return last week and he and I both do not beleive that it fibro..I am doing so weel in that area that when it hit this time, I was able to trace the onset of the pain and we just know it wasn't fibro, but something else, and then that would cause my flare up. I go in today at noon for testa and x rays..Please, everyone on this prayer circle say a special prayer for me at that time. Going thru any type of testa is difficult for a person with fibro as it will inevitably cause a flareup, but I am excited to find out the truth today!
I also left my spouse that was NO GOOD for me or my illnesses and only compounded my pain and depression. It was really hard to do, but it has helped physically and mentally ssssoooooo very much! (now if only my heart will mend..)
I turned to God in my despair, finally, and completely and have been blessed with so many little miracles that there are to many to count! I am actively involved with my church again and my felloe brothers and sisters in Christ. I am truley obeying and worshipped God and the rewards have been plentiful.
I pray, my dear Lord, that all here who are suffering so will give themselves over to you completely, Lord, and that you heal and bless them when they become obiendient. Your Grace goes beyond my realm of thinking, but my heart fells it and is so grateful to you, God. I praise you and thank you, God! Jesus Christ, you are my saviour and I thank you with all that I am for dying on the cross for me and saving me!!!!!!!!! Your sacrifice for me is truely awesome! Thank you God, for yet another day! I love you, Lord and I love all you in this circle!

DEAREST HEAVENLY FATHER, I THANK THEE FOR ALL OF THE BLESSINGS YOU GIVE US..THE GOOD AND THE BAD. I'D LIKE TO SUBMIT THIS PRAYER FOR MY FATHER, HAROLD CURTIS, WHO IS SUFFERING FROM BONE CANCER. OUR FAMILY HAS RECENTLY FOUND OUT THAT THE CANCER IS SPREDDING THROUGH OUT HIS BODY. OH LORD, PLEASE GRANT MY FATHER STRENGTH THROUGHOUT THIS TIME OF PAIN, RADIATION, AND POSSIBLY CHEMOTHERAPY. I WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW WHAT A WONDERFUL FATHER I HAVE AND JUST HOW MUCH HE IS LOVED. I PUT MY PARENTS THROUGH HELL AS I WAS GROWING UP BUT DAD WAS ALWAYS THERE ENCOURAGING ME TO BE ALL THAT I COULD BE AND ASSURING ME THAT HE WAS IN MY CORNER. NOW AT AGE 75 MY DADDY IS STILL THERE TELLING ME NOT TO WORRY ABOUT HIM AND HE KNOWS WHEN THE LORD CALLS HIM HOME HE WILL BE READY. HE SAYS HE MISSES MOM; SHE DIED IN 1995. I GUESS IT'S MY OWN SELFISHNESS BECAUSE I CAN'T BEAR TO LOSE HIM. PLEASE FOLKS, PRAY ALSO FOR ME, HIS DAUGHTER, AS I STRUGGLE WITH THIS INNER BATTLE AGAINST THE CANCER THAT IS RAGING IN MY FATHER'S BODY. I PRAY FOR PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING AS WE ALL ENDURE THIS TERRIBLE MONSTER. I ALSO PRAY FOR OTHERS WHO ARE DEALING WITH ILLNESSES AND THE LOSS OF FAMILY MEMBERS. PLEASE CONTINUE TO BLESS US. IN YOUR SON'S NAME, JESUS CHRIST, AMEN

I would like to ask for your prayers concerning my chronic back pain, I am to have a procedure this week and next week to try and relieve this pain.
I was injured during a robbery at my work.
I also pray for all the people who suffer and for the direction from God to show us the way to become the people he wants us to be.

I would add this prayer for all those suffering from chronic diseases and especially for those who are seemingly alone.
It is called Anima Christi
Soul of Christ sanctify me.
Body of Christ,save me,
Blood of Christ inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds hide me. Suffer me not to be separated from Thee.
From the malignant enemy , defend me. At the hour of death, call me. And bid me come to Thee. That with Thy saints I may praise Thee. Forever and ever. Amen. My own burden of Fibromyalgia is made easier knowing that He is always with me. God bless you all!

I have found out last week that not only do I have a "different & chronic" form of Lymes Disease, but it has left my immune system open to a number of serious parasites that are destroying my skin, nervous system, are causing pain that isn't helped by anything a doctor will give me except for a once or twice gift of relief, BUT the other day I opened the jelly jar for to take a look after reading about parasites, and there were a few white, shiny, yet rainbow in color (in the sunlight) somethings growing in there, the mayonaise, butter. I have give something possibly deadly to my children. The doctors in Bradenton,FL took 2 years to come up with believing there was something wrong with me inside. We don't have health insurance. Please, pray for my children and husband. I want them well, my children haven't even begun a real life yet, please help me in getting them well and pray that my husband doesn't have anything. What money we do have after all living expenses must go to their welfare.

After this is done, help me ask God to heal me physically the way His Son healed and forgave me on the cross. I want to see my children graduate from high school, maybe college, get married, be happy in life and with the Lord during their life, and I would like to see a grandchild. But right now, prayers for my children and husband are the most important. God hold you and your families tightly in the palms of His hands. Pam

I want to thank all of you who post and pray for those of us with chronic medical problems. I have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, osteoarthritis, endometriosis and chronic abdominal adhesions. I am going to be having my 4th surgery for the adhesions within the next month and I am extremely anxious because the surgery will be very involved. I truly believe that God put these things in my life to make me a better person, and since I have been on disability ( since 1997 ) I have become very much in touch with my spirituality and I AM SO GREATFUL FOR THAT !!!! I would not be the person I am today if it weren't for being able to get away from all of the basic life stresses because those were not allowing me to be in touch with the real me, so my illnesses are a BLESSING TO ME BECAUSE THEY BROUGHT ME CLOSER TO GOD and to wonderful people like you in the prayer circles.........

I will be adding all your request to my prayer list and I would appreciate you praying for me. I am disabled, heart, arthritis, nerve problems. I was in a bad accident when I was about 20 years old, our car hit a tree, threw me in a windshield, cut me up pretty bad, but God was good and I lived. It left me with some problems that I am paying for now that I am in my middle 50's. I would apprciate you remembering me in your prayers. I get so discouraged because there are things I need to do, that no one else is around to do for me. Just pray I can face each day with the grace that God gives me. Thank you for your prayers, you will be in mine. Let us pray for one another believing!

Angelshery....I NEED YOU! I had the xrays last wednesday and friday i recieved the results. I have bone cancer. We think the origin is from my lungs. The prognosis is not good. It is said that to be able to see this on just x ray alone that 30-50 of my bone density is gone, already. and that i have 6 months. 6 MONTHS.
I still have to do further testing, of course. I go in next week for an ct and a mri and a biopsy..there is still the chance that it could be..well, whatever. I was really at peace with this for the last couple of days, figuring that i was in a win win situation. Jesus can heal me or i get to go home with Jesus. Where is there a lose in that? However, i got on the internet today and did some research and I am now really scared. Ignorance is bliss and I wish I had it back.Please, remember me in your prayers and know that I am praying for everyone here.

jlheard, I am in shock. I pray Lord that only you can change or show a recovery of a diagnosis. Lord in this case I pray for a healing or recovery, for remission. Lord please give us comfort and wisdom in this case for jlheard. Lord she has become a good friend and now the shock of her tests. It is hard for me to believe that such a child of God is to leave us soon. Lord I know that she will go to a better place but if there is anyway that you could lengthen jlheards time that it would happen. Lord I don't know what to say about all this just that you shelter her in your wings. Give peace and comfort and wisdom.I thank you for her and the friendship she has shown me even though we do not know each other. I pray that you would bring mercy to her. amen
