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 for me as I have a very rare disease called localized amyloidosis of the trachea. I have had surgery twice in the past year. I am waiting to see the results of some tests. I feel lucky compared to some but it is still frightening. I know God is with me and I am thankful for my faith but I would appreciate your prayers that I may be able to find a dr who understands this disease and can help me. If you know of anyone with this disease please let me know. Thank you. In His love, Bebeth.

Heavenly Father, We thank thee, for the times when we are able to feel well. For Beliefnet, and for this prayer circle were each of us, especially the chronically sick, can comfort and pray together. We thank thee for the many blessings you continue to pour down upon us, although we may not always recognise them. Where Faith is - Hope is also, and it is my Faith & Testimony, that you can heal each of us from our illnesses. I also think of Jesus and once again feel close to tears - For, who can forget the painful sacrifice HE made, as he gave HIS life for each of us? HIS was totally a sinless sacrifice. Father I pray for all here, that we might each be able to live with our burdens. Please comfort Dolphin, for Grief in any form makes us sad. Animals to some are best friends, and the loss felt when they leave us is real. Please help all who are in pain or in the middle of being diagnosed with your strength and your peace, which passeth all understanding. We pray for healing, even for a miracle,knowing thou will heal & help us according to thy Holy Will. You know each of us - our comings and goings and even our hearts. Father please help us to be Valiant in our testimonies of thee and to continue to have Faith, in the name of Jesus Christ...Amen.

God wants us all to be well. Sickeness is not of God and fear is not of God. Through sickness, we must not fear. Jesus died for us to be well and we shall not accept sickenss! To fear is to accept the sickness and by holding on to Gods hand and putting our full trust and faith in him, we shall all be healed in Jesus' name.

My husband who is 38 years old, has been diagosed with rheumatoid arthritis three years ago, and because of weakening immunity, comes down with different infections all the time. He is therefore under various kinds of medications including that for rheumatoid arthritis, is always under pain, and always scared of starting another infection. He is getting depressed and talks about not having very long to live. I really feel helpless and worried, and keep wishing it were me instead of him. I pray for him too, but would feel better if all of you could pray for him too. I have been reading all these prayers, and will be praying to ease your sufferings too, every time I pray for my husband.

I want to extend my prayers and blessings to all who are dealing with chonic illness and pain. Because of the death of my best friend my heart has opened and I have compassion. (I am dealing with astham as a chronic condition and know the frustrating parts of that illness so well.)
I pray that somehow you will find the strength and hope to deal with all of this and that God and the Higher Powers want you to trust and surrender as much as possible. I know that until I have the problems I cannot know the amount of disappointment and pain people go through, but somehow I want you to know that I care. May God breath on you and let you know He Cares too.

I earnestly pray for the relief of that which eats away at whatever troubles our bodies and threaten to deteriorate the strength of our minds and hearts. Having suffered from the painful effects of being diagnosed with manic depression and a hypothyroid, I have reached a devestating point in my life, where all that I worked to achieve in school, all my drive, my relationships with others, and even the hope I once had has been collectively disintigrating for the past year, both directly and indirectly as a result of this condition. I never imagined this would be the path I was to walk so early in life.

All I hope at this point in my life and anyone else who is reaching a point of being paralyzed by the situation that they they themselves or their loved ones are in, that they thrive on the Life which is just a breath away.

My love, my prayers and my thoughts extend to all of you.

Father God, I ask You to intervene for my sister Jackie. Lord You know everything about her, You know she loves You with all her heart, and is ready should You call her home at this very moment. Father we have stormed the throne of heaven in Jesus name for Jackie for the past 30 years, and I know You have a purpose for her to remain on this earth, though in my finite mind, I can't understand what it is. But that doesn't matter because Your ways are higher than our ways, and You are sovreign and in control of all. Lord, I ask again to give Jackie comfort as she waits upon You. May her life be such a candle in the darkness in the lives of those without You. May many be drawn to You by the power of the Holy Spirit as they see Jesus in Jackie's life. Let all see the light of her countenance as they visit her. I don't presume upon You to heal her, it may not be in the plan You have for her life. God use her for Your glory! Amen
Jackie has been ill for 30 years. She only has 17% of her heart that is alive, and has degenerate lungs. She has been told she will die from heart failure or drowning. She also has cellulitus. She cannot lay down, so she has been sitting for 24/7 for the past 5 years. She has gashes in the back of her thighs that are very deep because she sits constantly, from the cellulitus. She has NEVER complained, and she has such a sweet spirit. Please pray for comfort for her body, and peace to her soul. Thank you prayer warriors!

I pray for all who are posted on this message board, that they will all find the strength, courage, and especially hope to face and overcome their personal challenges/afflictions. I pray for God's healing energy to touch each person, and keep each surrounded and enfolded with his tender, loving care. I pray for those who are a part of the lives of those whose health is challenged--that they will find strength and comfort as they help their loved ones to cope and to heal. I pray that none become bitter because of their dis-eases . . . sometimes blessings happen to us in the strangest of ways. Sometimes, loved ones who have lost touch with one another will come together and renew the bonds of love when one is ill. Sometimes, people come out of battling a long disease with a whole new outlook on life. They have worked hard to get well, and they are no longer bothered by life's ordinary annoyances. They have a fresh, vibrant, and grateful outlook, and become an inspiration to the rest of us. Many will reach out to others in similar need, and the love flows freely.

I ask for all of you wonderful, special people to include the following people in your prayers; they are very dear to me:

Tere--a coworker and friend. Tere has been recently diagnosed with osteo-arthritis, and while viewing her x-rays taken to study her case, the doctors discovered a "tumor". Tere must undergo additional testing to see whether or not this tumor is benign. Please pray for healing and strength for Tere and her family.

Lynn--a coworker and friend. Yesterday, Lynn had undergone surgery to her knees, due to extremem pain associated with arthritis. Lynn is also diabetic. She is recovering well so far. Please pray for successful, complete recovery.

Loretta--my mother. My mother had been diagnosed with advanced endometrial cancer 5 years ago. Thanks be to God that she is well, and it looks doubtful that the cancer will return! I know that prayer circles have helped her to recover. Please continue to pray for her continued good health.

Kim--my husband's aunt. Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago. She has had a rough time of it, but keeps chugging along. Please help her to regain her strength and zest for life. Before the cancer, her life was a wonderful blurr of activity--she's an artist, square-dance enthusiast, and volunteered alot of time to hospices. Now she is too tired for any of those pursuits. Please pray that she regains her health and fiesty spirit! We need her delightful energy in the world!

May Belle--a sweet member of my church. May Belle is 90-something years old, and suffered a heart attack about a week ago. She is recovering well, thanks to the power of love and prayers. Please keep her in your prayers.

Frankie--the cleaning lady where I work. She has many family members who are battling different ailments and are in pain. Please pray for her to stay strong as she continues to help them, and pray for her family's healing.

Countless blessings to all of you . . . ! Thank you so much for your wonderful prayers!

Father God, we are such a needy people! Lord I pray for each need on this board, and ask that You will heal those whom You have chosen to heal, comfort all who are in pain, encourage those who are depressed, bring joy where there is sadness, peace for turmoil, love for hate, and pour out Your mercy, flood each soul with Your grace. I thank You Lord, for who You are. I pray You will receive glory from each life. I worship and praise You for Your goodness, and Your faithful, steadfast love and compassion. Amen

Hi Everyone,
I have not been on for a while as I was in the hospital for almost two weeks with blood clots in my leg from the ankle to the thigh. I was very close to having my leg amputated, but Praise God, he answered prayers and I responded to the treatment that was given. I had to keep my leg elevated for two weeks after I cam home, so was not able to be on my computer. It was a most scary time, but God gave me peace during that time and spared me having to lose my leg.
I have spent sometime reading the requests and prayers that have been submitted here, and there is much to pray for among our circle. When there is an answer to prayer and blessings from God, it is important to witness to His love and give prayers of thanksgiving, which I feel right now. I am praying for all here and their needs. Suz - I can relate to your problems as I also have fibro, lupus and am diabetic as well as having had three major spine operations that has left me with a high pain level. May the Lord bless you and all here who come with their petitions for themselves, family, friends and the people in the Prayer Circle.

Love & Prayers, Dolphin

Recently I was told that I might have MS and must now go through a battery of tests to try to find a diagnosis. I have lived through a very brutal relationship and have finally found the man of my dreams and we are to be married nest year. I am asking for prayers for the both of us and that we will be given the strength we both need to get through this. I am not asking for any miracles because that is up to GOD but I firmly believe in the power of prayer. Thank you all in advance. Feel free to email me at any time and I will keep you all in my prayers as well.

God Bless and Keep You All in His Tender Care.

Dear jangel, I will surely keep you and your fiancee in my prayers. I feel that because you are asking for prayer shows that you have strong faith in God and that He will hear your prayers and those who are praying for you. Please keep in touch and let us know how your tests turn out.

Love & Prayers, Dolphin
