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.

This is for all who are mothers wishing all a comfortable and Happy Mother's Day

In the shadow of your wings I rejoice, alleluia.

Psalm 63
O God, my God, at dawn I seek you,
for you my soul is thirsting, my flesh is longing,
like a dry and parched land longs for water.

I have gazed on you in the holy place,
to behold your might and your glory.
Better than life itself is your love,
my lips will sing your praise.

So I shall bless you all my life long,
lifting up my hands to invoke your name;
my soul will be filled as with rich feasting,
and my mouth will proclaim your praise.

I remember you as I lie on my bed,
on you I meditate through the watches of the night,
for you, O God, have come to aid me.

I rejoice in the shadow of your wings,
to you my soul has held fast,
you have sustained me by your right hand.

In the Spirit of Christ your Son,
the Church meditates on your glory,
through the watches of the night.

In the shadow of your wings I rejoice, alleluia.

It has been a while since I read and all the heart felt prayers. I want to pray for those who have sick love ones. I know how hard it can be sit by and feel like there is nothing you can do. I know prayers work. I am evidence of that. To the person who had to move closer to her family, God has blessings for you beyond what you know. He know you are sacrificing the life you have known for a while. TO Onlyone, I am praying for you. I am happy to say my 82 year old grandmother made it through her surgery. She has a fighting spirit like no one I know. I continue to pray for my friend Kim who has cancer. I am glad that she will see her oldest son graduate from high school. To Racheltang and MusicaltiggerGirl I am praying for you and your dis-ease. Lastly I pray for myself and my depression, it truly hit me hard last week. God's love got me out of bed every morning to face the world. To God be the glory for keeping my seizures under control and the medicine he gives. To all of you who are worrying about your illness, don't God has got you in the palm of his hand. That's the best place to be.

I am not so strong this week. I need the prayers of good Christians. I would first like to pray for my grandmother who is doing pretty well. I continue to pray for Kim (she has cancer)she has taken loosing her hair very well to say she had pretty long hair. She has made me know that is just a small price to pay in order to get better. I pray for my mother who has had some problems with her bowels. She will have to go through a series of test next month, I just hope everything will be all right. As for me, I suffer from depression and it has hit me hard. I fight to get out of the bed and get dressed. I am praying to get a job because it will give me more of a reason to get up and get out of bed. I just want things to get better. All my hopes I give to GOD in the hope that my wishes are HIS also. In Jesus name, AMEN

My prayer is for each person to find peace whatever the outcome of each of their situation. God has been very good to me even in the midst of a bad situation. I am learning how to find true joy instead of temporal happiness. My prayer is that you too find what you are looking for. God is guiding me and pray you let him guide you also.

I thank God for my disability because it slowed me down enough to be able to hear his voice. I thank him for my pain because it helps me to empathize with others. I thank him for the internet which has connected me to others who suffer from chronic illness. I pray for all those in this prayer circle -- that they will cling to our Father for the strength, peace, and comfort they need. And that they will reach out to each other for support and encouragement. Please visit my site to extend loving arms across the country and around the world to others who suffer with illness:

I was reading my old emails today and foudn this beautiful prayer, and I thought how wonderful it would be if more people had access to it so here I am posting it , if you wish copy and paste in your email account so you can send it to others. Thank you and may God bless your every step : )
Please take a moment to relax your mind and humble your heart to focus on Christ. Allow God, to be the only person
on your mind while you read this prayer. If we can take the time to read
long jokes, stories, etc., we should give the same respect to this prayer.
Friends that pray together, stay together.
Dear Lord:
I thank You for this day. I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding
God. You have done so much for me and you keep on blessing me.Forgive me for everything I have done,said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask
now for Your forgiveness. Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new
attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin
through God's eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing,
and receive the forgiveness of God.
And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example-to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed
beyond my limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted
that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way. I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those that will delete this without sharing it with others. I pray for
those that don't believe. But I thank you that I believe. I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they
are out of debt and all their needs are met. I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than
God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that
confesses them willingly.
This is my prayer in Jesus' name Amen.
If you prayed this prayer, change the number in the subject box before forwarding the message so people can SEE how many people have done so. God Bless!!!!!!!!!!!
Just repeat this phrase and see how God
Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, please.
Pass this message to 8 people except you and me. You will receive a miracle tomorrow. Don't ignore and God will bless you. Know that you are already
blessed by the person whom sent this to you.

p.s: I gues I don't have to explain the miracle part right?! :)
