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.

Dear friends, I ask you to pray for me. I have suffered from chronic severe migraines to the point that I can no longer work and I get disability. In part it was the cause of my marriage ending 6 yrs. ago and I live alone. My children are grown and I don't see much of them. Because of all this, I also suffer from depression. Seventeen months ago I tried to commit suicide. Slowly, things have changed in my life, but it is still such a struggle. I write prayers in some of the other circles. I can't do much, but I can pray for those less fortunate than I. I know that there are people out there that are worse off than me. But still I ask you to pray for me. I also pray for Those Living Alone prayer circle, for I am one of them also. Thank-you. I will pray for all of you -- God Bless.

I am living with a rare form of Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Not a day goes by when I am pain free. I pray that all of us who have chronic diseases will never allow their faith to be challenged. God has said he will never leave us, we will never be alone. I also pray for anyone and everyone who is suffering. I know I have found comfort in my faith and my prayers! I am offering up prayers for anyone who needs them. God bless everyone!

Dear Holy One watching all of us: Please give relief to all of us in need of it, give us strength to be wise in our medical care, and spiritual needs. To ask for all of us to have days when we don't suffer, and to have power when we do. I send love to every poster here, and to myself, with shocking diagnosis that I haven't yet emotionally digested or accepted fully. I pray for all here, and myself, to wake up, find miracles, feel connected despite or through our illnesses and great thanks for helping so many who get depressed in their/our bodies. amen

I would like to add my daughter to your circle. She has Lupus, Raynauds, and Sojrens. She is only 27 years old. We are fighting with the state medicaid at this time, trying to get help for her, she has no ins. and cannot work. Please keep her in your prayers, as well and our State Representitive who is helping us. I pray that each one in this circle recieve the peace of God. He said he would never forsake us in our time of need. Jesus received the stripes that we may be healed. May God look kindly upon you all.

Thank you God for all the blessings and good things in my life. I am thankful especially for all the abundance, prosperity, and healing in my life. I am most thankful, however, for you helping me to believe, think, say, and do your will for me today and every day. Help me to share your unconditional love with myself and others. Thank you for healing my mind, body and soul. I am diagnosed with many chronic diseases and have constant pain. Thanks God again for my healing and for healing others. With an attitude of gratitude, healing begins!
Today is a new day and we will get out of it what we put into it. We have a fresh start anytime we choose. God bless us all.

To all of you in our prayer circle. I have recently been diagnosed with MS. It has been very difficult for me to accept. I was in the hospital for a week and now I am out still on Prednisone trying to get the lesions to calm down. I am a very independent person and this has been a devastating diagnosis for me. I guess in the back of my mind, I always knew I had something because I was very clumsy and have had many injuries, broken bones, etc. But this time I knew it was the big one! I couldn't even touch my left thumb to my fingers on that hand or touch my finger to my nose. So they admitted me for a week and ran all the tests and gave me steroids and now .. I am oficially an MS patient. Next week I am supposed to start an injectible drug called Copaxone . I will have to inject myself every day. I am praying that this drug will help to calm my symptoms because I want to go back to work. I just pray, Lord, that most of my motor skills return, that I am able to work, that I am able to remain alert enough to finish a whole day and to take care of my family. Yes, I believe we must bare what we are given, but luckily , we do have some modern medicine that can help sometimes. I ask you for your prayers so that the medicine they put me on will put me into remission and that I can continue living as I once did before this devastating diagnosis. Thank you, Lord for only allowing the MS to affect one side of my body, and I pray oh Lord, you see it in YOUR plan to keep me in remission. In your holy name, Jesus, amen.

Dear Jesus Christ, I am suffering from Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. I have been as you know for several years. God, it gets harder and harder to cope with things as I run into people who do not believe me or have no peace and love in their lives that they can feel any compassion for thsoe who are ill. God I ask you to heal my body and please soften those around me that they can at least understand my burden. Lord, also help my mother who suffer from lupus. She puts up a strong front, but I know it is hard for her. Bless her with good health and keep her safe. Bless everyone here on this board that they may truly find salvation and everlasting life. AMEN

Hello to all in this prayer circle. May God bless you and help you as you journey through the rough waters of live. I have often quoted to myself that there are fierce waves at the shore but looking farther out we can see calmer water.

I am no longer able to work and can barely keep up with the house work. Since we sold our farm much of that stress and physical labour has been eleviated. But the sale of the farm and the great diaspora of my beloved animals has brought much feeling of loss especially considering that my parents unexpectedly died 24 days apart and the farm sold the next month. Between Chronic ftigue, panic attacks, fibromyalgia, a fused back and scoliosis
I feel like I am a walking encyclopedia of how not to grow old!

God is in control but I feel so lost and lonely that most days are so hard to get through. I think that this is one of those times referred to in the lovely words of "Footprints"..."my beloved child, there were only one set of footprings because I carried you." I have had an angel come a scoop me up and hold me with wings rapped around me for extra comfort. I pray that each and every one who is suffering can take a couple of moments to relax and sink in to the arms of and angel and then feel peach.

I will pray for all of you...I have a prayer journal so I am able to remember what each one's special needs are.

I have a really bad case of manic-depression. I have been pretty much at home since August as they look for something to stabalize me. My parents keep taking me to different doctors who say that there is nothing else to try. I make myself get out of bed every day and do my yoga -which becomes more and more painful each day- and walk my dogs. (They are truly from God.) I make myself go to Sunday School and church once or twice a week and spend time with friends although I only have a two hour window that I can function outside my house. I find out Tuesday if I have fibromyalgia. Now they want me to go on permanent disability. I am pretty scared because I am only 37. I know that I have lots of blessings - too many to name here- and I pray and mediate on them every day. I am thankful to God for my life and am loved by many people. I just don't want to keep feeling like this and I would like my life back. No matter what religion you are, all are equally valid, please pray for me. I thank you all.

Please help. I know I'm in the right place.. the more I read and hear, the more I understand about prayer! My husband is probably the most caring person I've ever met. He is now experiencing the ravaging effects of a form of muscular dystrophy (Charcot-Marie-Tooth) as well as a extremely progressive hearing loss. He is now so depressed and angry that it scares me. I hope that eventually his therapist will help him, but I know in my heart that prayer is what he needs. I pray for anyone who is in the position of caregiver for someone with chronic disease, particularly if it involves pain. Please pray for my husband, Mark, that he will find some answers: spiritually and medically. Thanks!

mcotto: I will pray and send light for your husband. May God bless him and stay with him in this rough time.
