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.

Hi Everyone, It has been such a long time since I have posted here, and I am sorry I have been so remiss. It has been a most difficult year for me, with pneumonia and an increase in my pain level to the point where the pain management doctor had me on a trial with an intrathecal pain pump, which did give me some much needed and wanted relief. I only had it for five days and then it had to be removed until they could schedule surgery to implant the pump permanently. I will have that done on April 18th and I ask for your prayers that it will help me without any problems with the medication.
I also was unable to post because of a bad problem with severe temdenititis in my arm, and I had to give it a long rest. I am writing again, but not as long a period at one time that I used to do.
I have read through the pages of prayer requests and have recognized some names from when this Circle began. It made me feel very good to see that it has continued and I am so glad I began it so long ago. Thanks to all who have kept things going here. I hope to be able to come here more often.
There are so many that have chronic pain and illness, and my prayers go to you, as I know what this is about. I could not even sleep in a bed for many months and had to be in a LazBoy chair until Medicare approved a hospital bed for me. I also invested in a magnet mattress cover, which has helped me to get a more restful sleep at night.
I will keep all of you in my prayers, and hope you will do so for me.

Love & Prayers
Dolphin

Well, PRAISE OUR GOD! It's so wonderful to see your Post and to know that you are still in the land of the living! I was thinking that we would all meet again at the roll call:)
I haven't been on for a while. My sister is still holding on. She looses ground and then GOD renews her like the eagle. She is often depressed but God is the lifter-up of our heads and so we continue to encourage her. She has had a few brushes with death but like I told her, it's not her time, yet.
May GOD continue to Bless all of you and keep you in HIS Care!

Heavenly Father, Thank You for all that you do for us each and every day. Thank You Lord for just another day to serve the purpose for which you have sent us. Lord,Father God, Thank you for making my mother, Dorothy Scott one of your vessels, a true testimony. My Mom is still currently in Lockefield Village where she now resides. My Mom has alzheimer as I stated in my first prayer request back in Nov., 2002. I am asking everyone to pray for Mom and everyone that is in need of prayer, not only for the person going thru the illiness but for all the families as well. Back on Feb. 28, 2003, the doctors called me at work and told me to tell all family members to come see mom if they wanted to, because her body was shutting down and they did not believe that she would live another 48 hours. "Don't you know by now that the everlasting God, the Creator of the farthest parts of the earth, never grow faint or weary? No one can fathom the depths of his understanding." Isaiah 40:28. Today is April 10, 2003 and she is still breathing, her foot that has the ulcer is dead and the toes will probably fall off, but I also know that if it is God's will he has the power to heal her foot and make it hole again. I just had to share that with the prayer circle. Please continue to pray for me and mine, as I will continue to pray for all of you. Praise be to GOD.

Dear Father Creator Of All, I pray for all who has been diagnosed with a chronic disease, for their family and for their caregivers. Lord PLEASE give them the strength to carry on and ease their pain. Help them find relief, strength, courage and peace within themselves and their lives.
I am making an extra prayer for my nephew, Nick who was diagnosed with lung cancer 6 months ago at the age of 22, and told by the doctors 3 weeks ago that they have done all that can be done. Please Lord Help give him the strength to defeat this battle, and I ask, if it is not your will to heal him please don't allow him to suffer. Nick has always been a good kid, and has never even smoked. Please help us, his family, remember that you have jobs and plans for each and every one of us and that there is a reason for everything. We may not understand them or even like them but the reasons are of your will. Although I ask for strength lord I know you will not give us anything that we can not overcome as his family, and for us (the family) this is a test of strength to overcome. PLEASE LORD lay your healing hands on Nick.
Thank You, In Jesus' name, AMEN

ALCORE!! How wonderful to come back on and see your message. You were one of the first posters to reply when the Circle began. I am so sorry that your sister is still having a bad time and indeed will keep her in my prayers, along with all of our other sisters and brothers in the Lord and God who are suffering pain and chronic illnesses as well as their loved ones and dear friends. May God put His healing hand on all who come here with prayer petitions and give them the strength to endure what they must. One day we will all be healed and healthy and will know the depth of the love of God for each and everyone. May this coming Holy week be a time of spiritual blessings and also for any of our Jewish friends who will be celebrating their holy season. Again, Alcore, so good to see you.

Love & Prayers,
Dolphin

Today is the first day that I have signed on. What I have read has been very inspiring and encouraging. What an awsome sight, and am looking forward to talking with many in need of whatever I can do to help. I myself have been diagnosed with a terminal illness as well as suffering with CFS and Fibromyalgia. It has been quite humbling for me. At times depressing, I am a mother of 3 girls 17, 10, and 8 years old. I hate not being able to have the energy that I used to have, I just get tired so easily. Lately, I have been houseridden, however am believing and thanking God for my healing. I will pray for all of those that are in pain physically, emotionally, or spiritually. May God send all a very special blessing TODAY in Jesus name. Amen

I come asking for prayers for my son who is HIV positive and suffers daily. He has high spirits and works everyday he believes
in God and prays that he will help him through this ordeal (which is for a lifetime) He suffers greatly from the side effects of the drugs his doctors have prescribed. I pray that God cures this affliction and restores him to his former health. He has been suffering for 15 years with this disease. Please pray for him, that God cures him or if that is not his will that he ease the symptons that afflict him. (he aquired this disease through a blood transfusion)
Thank you for all your prayers.
I would also like you to pray for a friend that has undergone brain surgery to remove a fast growing tumor. Please pray for his fast recovery.

I will say a prayer for each person who has asked for other's prayers due to illnesses, pain and sickness. I am a healthy 33 yr old female, and after reading some of your requests, I feel as if there are times that I take that for granted. For that I owe each and every one of you an apology. I do know that Jesus Christ is my (our) savior, and he watches out for each of us every minute of every day. I am so grateful to Him for his sacrifice(s) so that we may live today.
I would also ask for a prayer from anyone who can for my father who suffers from Emphysema, and is in his "last stages" of the disease. The doctors' have only given him 1-3 years, and I am abolutely terrified, saddened, heart broken, shocked and I feel so helpless. So, I would appreciate it if you could just say a couple of words for my Dad, who has been the light of my life ever since I was a little girl. I love him so much. He is suffering right now, and is in so much pain (both physically and mentally). He believes that he didn't "provide" for our family like he should have and carries a ton of guilt because of that. I can't seem to get through to him that he was the BEST DADDY a family could ever ask for...and he did the best he could. I don't want him to go without relieving him of this guilt. Any words of advice to me, and/or prayers for his lungs to give him as long as possible with us, without him being in pain, would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for this website. I don't feel so alone anymore. I love you God.

My prayers for all those, who like me, suffer from HIV infection and the often terrible and debilitating side-effects of the Rx and the accompanying depression and sometimes despair. I pray that all will hold to their faith in God or whatever sustains them. God will give us the wisdom to do daily what we need to do, if we only ask him. As the Book of Common Prayer says:

If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And i I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.

For everyone who has a chronic disease, know in your hearts that you are all still part of God's world and God's plan, and you are all capable of that Love which transforms all pain into good.
