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.

Well I have been very busy catcthing up on all the things I had been unable to do before my heart surgery. I finally found a few minutes to stop by and I see so many new peopl!! May you all know that your prayers have been added to mine. It is so good to see so many of us come together in one place (God is no respector of time) to pray together, and to hear the wonderful testimonies that are coming about as a result of the work of our Lord. I stand in awe of all He has done!! Things are slowing down so I will be able to come and pray with you more often, but you are always in my prayers outside of this site.

God bless you all. Remember to be thanksful for every moment God gives here on earth to work for His glory. It won't be long now before He comes to take us home and we will be doing work of a different kind!!

Love to you all

PLEASE be in prayer for dixiedarling and her family!!! Her husband is in the final stage of bone cancer and they are having a hard time. He is a mighty prayer warrior like dixiedarling, and the workd will miss him greatly. Please pray for strength for both of them as well as their daughter.

If it be God's will we will soon have a wonderful testimony about how God healed him, or a praise report ;that God has taken him home to hurt no more. Either way keep them in your prayers.

Love to all

I didn't know about this site; it found me in my e-mail. I am truly thankful to GOD for sending it to me. I am sending a prayer out for everyone in this circle. I pray that our Father, blessed be HIS name, give everyone in this circle the same companionship, comfort, and blessings that HE has given me. I have suffered with PCOS, fibroid tumors, and endometriosis until I had a hysterectomy in 2002. I now am suffering from debilitating fibromyalgia and Avascular Necrosis (completely dead bones)in both hips and my left ankle and foot. I am wheelchair dependent. I suffer a great deal of pain on a daily basis. I am currently on methadone, but it's like taking candy: no effect at all. I have no side effects like feeling high or drowsy either. My pain management Dr. told me no oral medicine will help me. I am praying that he be able to put a pain pump in and that it helps. Please pray for me to receive it and also for me to receive me S.S.I. Disability. They seem to think I can walk 8 hrs. a day while lifting at least 10lbs. Also please pray for my children who have to help me in all things as they have basically given up their childhood to take care of me. Thank you all and GOD Bless You.

Dear God - I ask for your blessing, protection and healing for all afflicted with chronic illness and all the ways it can roll over and affect all areas of your life and your family and friend's lives. Please give us all the foresight and patience we need to find answers and solutions to the health, financial, social, legal and family issues that surround having and dealing with chronic illnesses. Please help with funding for and attitudes about chronic illnesses for the players in science, cures, greed, control, and remembering that we should all help each other make it through our experiences dealing with chronic illnesses. Not to judge someone but put yourself in their shoes and stumble around there for a while before you make a judgment.

In Jesus Name,
and thank you....

I love you God with all my heart. Please bless all these people here and around the world that have these diseases. Please be with them always and help them to be strong and brave. Please also be with their families and help all of us to be there for each other. I ask it in Jesus name. Thankyou Lord, Amen.

Please pray for me, I have mental illness and fibromyalgia and now as a side effect of my medication I have dystonia ( uncontrolled movement) in my neck that is quite painful. It really has hampered my life as I used to like to walk alot and now cannot unless I walk around supporting my neck with my hands which is very odd for people to look at. A brace was not effective. I will continue to pry for those who use this site. DEar God listen to our sincere prayers, Amen

Hi I have been away since 10/2003 and finally made my way back. God is good and I miss the friendship and prayer of this group. I have fibro,arthritis,(both osteo and rheumatoid)I have asthma which has flared since spring has started, that flared my fibro and on a vicious cycle.
O heavenly king I pray for comfort, guidance and your love to grace this group. Bless and console the weary, ease the painridden and go ahead of us so we can follow our leader, The good shepherd. Praise you and honor your holy name amen.

4/10/2006 18:12

within this circle, the pain becomes bearable. May no one ever feel alone during their hard times as, together, we join hands and travel down a new road of strengthening our souls for salvation. The Lord is my shepard.

I am going through a difficult time as my oldest daughter is pregnant and I live a hour away from her and no vehicle to get around. Please pray that the Lord will provide a vehicle for me and my youngest daughter and granddaughter get a vehicle to get around to get things done like Dr. visits, shopping, etc.
Heavenly Lord I pray for those women here that you can give them insight into their lives on what blessings you have for them. Also what grace and compassion will hold instore for their lives. Thank for all that is given to us because of the death your son did for us so that we may live in heaven and glorify your Holy Name. Amen

I have multiple chronic problems, diabetes, fibromyalgia, degenerative arthritis (all over), degenerative disc disease, glaucoma, major depression--severe at times, and now I found that for years I have had Addisons Disease due to pituitary failure. Addisons Disease can be fatal. It causes my BP to drop to fatal levels and anything can bring it on....upset, headache, argument, sickness, fever, pain....anything. My grown children are moved out. One lives alone and the other is married with 2 children, ages 5 and 2. Their mother, my daughter in law, hates me. If I go to their house she goes into the bedroom and stays. My son does not defend me to her. I have been very, very, sick and depressed...and at times pray for death because it seems no one cares for me at all (except Jesus). Both my sons talk to me with hate in their voices unless they want something (money loan or babysitter, etc.) My first husband (the boys' father) deserted us when my boys were 1 and 3. I raised them alone. Stress has caused most of my health problems and now, with all my physical pain and dispair, everyone hates me.

The devil works on my mind....trying to bring me lower. I know God is here and He loves me. I am a spirit-filled Christian, but I don't think I can take much more emotional suffering. I'm ready to crack. My daughter-in-law's mother also hates me and the two of them conspire against me. I don't want to live in this body anymore. Please pray for me. My daughter-in-law and her mother claim to be saved but have not been baptised (the mother has) nor wants anything to do with the things of God. That family (daughter-in-laws family) smokes, drinks, and encourages my grandchildren to watch scarey movies and talks about "boogers" to them and scares them to death. They keep them all the time now (I used to keep them) and I think they are doing it to hurt me. They stood back and let me keep the first child until he was 4 and he means as much to me as if he were my own. But now days, they never let me see either grandson unless it is to benefit them. My own sons do not visit me nor do they ask me over to visit all. My oldest son makes up excuses when I ask if I can come over and see him. He's been moved out now for 4 years and he will be 30 this year. I feel like someone has cut out my heart.

DEar Southern Yankee, I also have fibromyalgia, dystonia(painful and unnatural neck movements)and mental illness. My children were awarded to their adoptive father upon our divorce and I cried every day for over a year because of the lonliness and pain. The winners in this life are usually the strong. This leaves many sick people out and their often only hope is to trust God for their future and even more to trust him when this life is over. My only daughter gets ahold of me when no one else can be found to babysit and she has no sympathy for my pain or anguish. My Son calls me twice a year if I am lucky. So I cannot do anything but pray for you at this time but please realize this is a very common occurence and you must try to let God lift you up and to find friends to not replace but at least fill in for family you don't have around much. There was a lot of hatred towards me before and after I got divorced. My husband would slug me in the head and Since he is a huge man I would hit the floor and not get up for a while. None-the-less it was he who got the children when they were 14 and 15 and so their image of him as the deserving and strong parent remains even though they are 29 and 30 years old now. You must develope some self love to survive rejection and hate. God does not look down on the weak. He waits on them to give them hope and take them home in the end. Amen

I was recently diagnosed with schizo-affect disorder. I pray to God for help in dealing with this disease.

4/25/2006 20:19

I would like prayer for my daughter in her mid twenties who has had fybro since her teens, who has met a wonderful man, that his love for her will be strong enough for both himself as he learns about and accepts this part of her life, and they can work beyond this fibro for a future they do hope to have together. I pray they learn to really lean and trust in God for guidance and strength for growing through these times.

5/1/2006 02:08

I am asking for prayer. I have Bi-polar, suffer from migrianes and also have a heart condition. Our God Rules. My faith is strong in him. I pray every day during my quite time with the Lord and each nite before I go to bed, that he wil take all this away and no moer medicine. I know he has the final decision in what happens in my life, but I do ask for him to take it away. I would ask for paryes of the same, unless the path he has me on requires me to continue to keep the health problems. If that is the case then I will galdly accept the mission and be guided by him through my mission that he has in store for me.

I also would like for prayer for our daughter who at 14 has just found out that she is also Bipolar and she is having a hard time adjusting and learning about the disorder. We have a wonderful support group at church but she still needs prayer.

God Bless you all, and thank goodness for this site.

We as followers of Christ, children of God should always support each other, because there is power in prayer.

God Belss!!!!

I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and have recently had a relapse. I am only 29 and have been dealing with this for most of my twenties. It is so hard to constantly be dealing with health issues while everyone else my age is building careers and lives; I want to be of service to the world but feel like all I get to do is work on trying to get/keep myself healthy. It is hard to keep up hope with this level of unpredictability in my life -- seems like every time I start trying to strive towards a new goal, I get sick again and have to go back to working on my health. I send prayers to all those who suffer, and ask for your prayers for my well-being...thank you.

5/6/2006 11:12

In the name of Jesus, I lift up everyone to the Father who suffers with fibromyalgia, just as I do. I pray that the healing hands of Jesus Christ would touch each and everyone of you. I send God's Word to each and everyone of you, His Word that heals. (Psalm 107:20 - He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.) The Word of God heals. Thank you heavenly Father for your healing hands that touch each and everyone who reads this and heals their bodies from the top of their heads to the soles of their feet, all for Your glory, in Jesus name, I pray and ask it. Amen and Amen!!!!

5/6/2006 15:48

Dear Lord, You see all of us with chronic pain and personality disorders like bipolar or scitzophrenia. Teach us to lift each other up and encourage each other during difficult times. I'm sure we all question your wisdom at times when some of our lives are constantly overshadowed with pain and confusion. DEar lord please help us to learn to pray effectively and help us to pray together because you said where-ever two or more are together there are you. Lead us, give us direction. Especially be with those who have to take care of children amidst their disease. Bless and strengthen all of them, the sick ones and the healthy ones around them. Give us hope when we get rejected and rediculed and when people say our disease is all in our heads or do not believe the pain we are in. Stand over us that we may rest well at night and take away fear and dread of the future. Let us be assured that there is a life after death and that there will be no sickness or pain then and may our relatives that have been passed on be able to pray for us and welcome us into heaven when that time comes. Amen

Dear Lord, I thank you for my pet. I am in discomfort tonight but he is here to comfort me and to "talk" to me in his own way. You know lord I went off my diet for collitis today and ate pizza and coke which both are bad for me and now I suffer after trying to appear normal around my daughter and grandson. Be with me tonight and tomorrow and strengthen me so I can get my car fixed and get done what needs to be done. Increase my health so I can possibly get a job or at least volunteer. Thankyou that I have disability to live on though I do not qualify for medicare and that scares me if they cut off medicaid for any reason I won't be able to get my medicines. Take away these worries and help me to pray for others and make more friends here too in the senior and disabled building that I am in. My daughter may not ever understand why I am not working but these people do because many are in the same situation as me. Provide financial help for those on this site and housing for all who live in a bad situation. Help me to watch my diet tomorrow. Amen

What a wonderful sight! I have come looking for prayer and have found this sight. I am in desperate need of prayer. I have had chronic illnesses all my life ( I am barely 41) and have just learned that the hip replacement that I had with terrible complications in 1999 will now need to be revised. The steroids that I have taken all my life have completely destroyed cartledge in the hip and the opposite knee making it almost impossible to walk. I also have depression due to many ongoing illnessses, I ask for all of your prayers in my life.God Bless
