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.

Please pray that the Health Network where I receive medical care will remain very strong competitive and caring. I was improperly treated by a huge health care network from 1998-2001. I since have all new doctors associated with another hospital and things are going better. I think it is wrong that some medical facilities are so greedy and think they are God. My one doctor understands my fear and I pray blessings for this good hospital. I was left with the need to have emergency surgery as a result of the wrong treatment and almost died in 2000 from treatment received from the first hospital. I need prayer and assurance from other members in this group. Please write to me and bring me some comfort. I am a strong prayer warrior and pray for others diligently. God Bless.

Her husband has left her and she is in need of home care so that her Father can go to work and help support his daughter and granddaughter.

I ask that each of you say a special prayer for me. Six years ago today I was given my last chemotheraphy treatment. I was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in 1995 while a junior in High School. Today I am a graduate student. I am currently experience a bit of pain and discomfort similar to what I experienced when I was sick. I contacted my doctor today and she wants me to have some tests done. I am really scared and am in need of your prayers. I am trying to keep a positive attitude but it is just so difficult. I pray that God will lay his hand upon me and heal my body. Thank you for your prayers

I came across the web site this evening and wept.This will be the 3rd time I have tried to add a request both to be prayed for and to pray with you for the Lord said were 2 or more are gathered i my name I am in the midst f them. I am a mum of 3 and have been ill for 8yrs with fibromyalgia/me (the doctors arent sure) and other problems which affect my quality of life. my husband is also suffering after being mugged and badly beaten up while working 4 years ago. he suffered severe injuries to the head and he has also been left with debilitating pain, seizures and illness which has been diagnosed from heart to strokes. doctors just do not seem to have the answers and our faith in Christ has increased, for we now enjoy every moment when we are able to feel well and appreciate are blessings. deppression, migraines, back pain from a slipped disc and other problems presently being diagnosed are making me feel weak and have anxiety attacks. I love the Lord with all my might and strength and pray you will pray for this family, which is silently at breaking point.I have been ofered an epidural for back pain, after 8yrs and have been put on so much medication my body cannot cope. Please will you pray with me for the strength to cope, to be able to bear my burdens and for the hope that specialists may be directed towards giving my husband and myself a diagnosis for our conditions. I am especislly grateful to have found this prayer circle and will pray for you all that we might be made whole and be able to support each other. for years I was told that ME was in the mind as my illness gets worse, i am now told differently. without the Lord in my life I dont know were I would be as help has often come from strangers who never realise just how much they have helped me to cope for one more day. I take a day at a time and ask that God will Bless and watch over each of you and that He will Bless the person who set up this site, for who knows to what end it may have saved many lives. The world is crying out for love and we all ned to feel loved, have hope and to be listened to. I feel I can take no more...then tonight your web page was found accidently. Many of us feel isolated and in my case, i feel selfish, when i speak of the illnesses we are suffering...even my marriage seems to be lost..yet a little voice tells me of Jesus, who loves us all and suffered a sinless sacrifice, far worse than what i am going throug, your prayes would be appreciated as I feel so desperate with a leg that has been broken twice in 3 months and i am also waiting for a bone density scan. I will also try to pray for each of you by name, regardless of whether you are able to pray for me or not. God Bless Donna42

Dear Heavenly Father: I thank you for this wonderful forum of holy people coming to you in prayer. I pray for all those who are suffering with chronic pain. I believe you are the God of all comfort and will bring help, relief, and strength to all who ask. I pray for the family members as well who are suffering on behalf of their loved ones in pain. As I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and am currently trying to find the right medications, give me the strength to endure the pain and be a good mother to my two little ones in spite of it all. Thank you dear Father for my wonderful supportive husband and all of the blessings in my life, too numerous to list. In Jesus' name I pray.

Please pray for Tina M. who is suffering from the depths of depression caused by painful chronic physical disease


Tina is a good friend and colleague who has been told that she has a chronic disease and possiblity of lung cancer (although inconclusive at the moment) and has sunken into the depths of depression so much so that she believes her life has already ended. She is physically debilitated with these thoughts at this time, her physical condition is increasingly deteriorating because of this I feel. This depression is bringing on more pain and suffering that she seems to think will never get better. I ask God to wrap his arms around her and give her light in this dark time in her life. That she will once again be happy, see clearly that she is loved by the Lord and the people around her and will find solice in these thoughts

My daughter was diagnosed with a failing liver in June of this year,because of a herbal product used.
We were told the liver may be failing and a possibility of liver transplant may be needed. As a parent, I don't know if anyone could imagine what this message from the Drs. did to me at the moment of knowing. I fainted and all I could do was to attempt to fake it..because the nurses called my daughter from her hospital bed because they did not know why I was there at the hospital. She was jaundiced in the eyes, edema in her stomach area. Scared..yes...I don't know where the strength came from to be able to tell her that she was going to be allright. I was delirious..as they rushed me to the emergency room, blood pressure dropping...but I needed to keep her strong...She was transferred to another hospital, the next day, one that deals with transplants, and biopsies. The doctors were very caring.
What was positive they all said was that her appetite was not failing.All other organs were in excellent condition.She gained some weight. It was so difficult to look at her with yellow eyes and the weight she gained, but I had to be there for her and smile at her and for her when the tears were hidden in the background. My anxiety level was at its highest..during this time. I traveled back and forth 100 miles per day while she was in this hospital to be there with her. She was given a biopsy of the liver...which was taken in her neck because the liver area was distended. They came back with the test results and said that they think the liver is schirrosis. They felt she may need a transplant. Our hearts were sad, but we told her "not to claim" the diagnosis. She was so strong..So strong. Scared to death we knew she was was stronger than I had ever seen her. She was sent home the day after the biopsy and was told to return to see the Dr. in two week period. She had to weigh herself on a daily basis, watch her diet very carefully, no salt, (sodium) etc. We got a health plan together, juicing (vegatables, fruit juicing) her weight became lower,
the swelling seemed to diminish on a daily basis...her bowels even became normal..which seemed to be a everyday problem with her before her illness.
Her eyes got less jaundiced and the swelling in her legs and body diminished. When we returned to the Dr.on her appt. date. We were given a paper explaining what was to be involved with a liver transplant. I could not finish reading this paper. I put in away. The took my daughter in to a psychologist before meeting with her Dr. for the possible transplant. When she finished visiting w/psychiatrist I saw her coming to the area I was waiting for her and I could see her fear. We were taken to the exam room to wait for her doctor and she broke down and cried. I went to her and rubbed her back and held her more than I had hugged her in many years. I hugged and hugged and cried with her. I was speechless because I wanted to tell her...it will not happen, but I had to try my best to be stronger than her at that moment.The Doctor came and and he seemed to be be very glad to see her.He examined her and reviewed the report
and told my daughter and I that he felt the diagnosis of the other doctors was over read and he would see her in 3 months unless she had to come back to him before the 3 month period. I sat in that Drs. office with my daughter and the tears were burning coming from my eyes.

Praise God..Praise God.....

Prayer works I truly believe in prayer
It has been three months...we revisit the Dr. on Friday...We continue to pray.
Her local physicians have released her from their care and all paperwork is being sent to the Drs. she will visit this Friday. I ask all readers to continue to Bless my child and Bless our family.....as we will Bless yours.

Bless you for this site. I suffer from degenerative joint disease, fibromyalgia and cronic fatigue. It is very hard. I just turned 40 in July and I have 2 children one is 13 (she is my strength) and one is 8 (he is my power to go on). These awful diseases have made me lose our home and we are struggling to make it thought this trying time. We are now in a new place and things are so hard. Please Pray for us. With the holidays coming it makes me so depressed. We have each other to lean on. They give me the will to fight. Pray that I can give back to my children what they have given to me. And Pray that I have the strength to fight these horrible diseases and continue to help my children grow and so we can be a happy healthy family.

Dolphin, thank you for this place! It helps me to see that I am not alone.
Bless you

Dear friends
I am in the pre diagnosis stage and I have been dealing with a complex selection of combined symptoms for over twenty years. This year my body developed symptoms that I could not ignore, over compensate for or self medicate. That has meant dealing with doctors again and they are still dismissing me and not listening. I don't know what to do. It has taken me years to learn to listen to my own voice have confidence and to trust myself and now as I deal with doctors, some friends and some counselors who do not know how to support me in the way I need I am feeling really depressed about struggling alone. Last week I started taking a new medication that a new neurologist had prescribed and after the second dose I found myself plunging into to depression, hysterical crying, mood swings, dark thoughts, turning pale (and I am a dark skinned black woman) and suicidal thoughts. I called the crisis line who advised me to call my neurologist - I did and the nurse told me that the medication doesn't cause this reaction and hung up. The medication is neurontin and the insert says that it does cause these symptoms. My predicament is that the medication did help curb my physical symptoms - it reduced my involuntary hand movements that have become increasingly strong and out of control. It took away my fatigue - in fact I didn't want to go to bed that night and stayed up until 3 AM. and initially it improved my speech and thinking so that I did not slur my words, stutter or have big lapses in thought. Anyway, without the support of my medical team I don't know what to do. I know I need medical assistant but equally important I need the touch of God's love, courage, guidance and support. I need to believe in the possible based on a faith that conquers fear. Please pray that God answers my prayer.

I met a great man on the internet two years ago. During that time, we became good friends and our friendship has blossomed into something special. I would like to ask for your help in saying prayers for his brother who is in the hospital who has just undergone surgery. God bless you all for your help.
