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.

MOSESANN~In response to what you wrote on 10/1/06: I almost feel as if you directed this to me, considering that I posted right above you and it was very lengthy. I must disagree with you that this sight is really for the suffering or those who are praying for someone they know who is suffering. It doesn't matter if you know who you are praying for or not. Prayer is needed for all, whether they realize they need prayer or not. In case if you hadn't noticed, I not only post prayer requests on this site, but on most of them. I have a pure heart, and all I want for others is what God wants...for all of His children to be blessed and be prosperous. And if what I am trying to do for the Lord bothers people, oh well. But, I will continue to pray for people, whether I know them personally or not. Have a very blessed day. And if you would like to carry this conversation on further, feel free to email me at

My wife's gall bladder has gone from being eaten up with cancer to three small spots from prayer alone. She needs some additional prayer to completely rid her of the disease. She also needs prayer for her back and neck which were broken. I need some prayer for my back and for my ministry. My mom just found out that she has skin cancer on her nose and they want to remove it and do skin graft. Please pray for her also.

We pray for all those who have posted requests on this board dear Lord. Please send them the healing that you have so graciously given us. Give us complete healing according to our faith as it be your will. In Jesus name we pray. Amen

Love, Hope, Peace, & Christ Be With You,

Cal & LaRaine Jennings

CALJENNINGS~In response to what you wrote on 10/8/06: Father God, I come to You now in the precious Name of Jesus, asking for Your miraculous, powerful, loving and healing touch to come upon this family. Make them whole and complete in You. Remove all cancer, Lord, from their bodies. Jesus bore stripes on His back so that they would not have to tolerate any sickness or disease. May it be so for this family and all others on this cite, according to Your Word. I thank You for not being a man that You should lie. I thank You that Your Word cannot return unto You void. I thank You for watching over Your Word to perform it. I thank You that it is Your Will for all to be healed. In fact, they are already healed, their bodies just don't know it, yet. Thank You for their healing. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.

O Heavenly Father-
We all may have questioned at times why we and others have chronic diagnosed or undiagnosed illnesses. We may have questioned or continue to question why You allow some things that have happened, are happening and that will happen in the future.
Your Great Wisdom is perfect, beyond our comprehension. Nothing you do or allow is by mistake but for Your Glory. Sometimes something we do not understand now, but we will understand later according to your will.
I Thank You Lord for bestowing so graciously, patience upon all of us here with chronic illnesses that may have brought us to You or strengthened us in your word as we find Your way is the only way. We ask you for healing and comfort but most of all protection until the day we are with You.
Keep us in the Holy Spirit and let us grow in Your Wisdom.
Bless us with patience, as patience builds strength ,and strength builds character. Mold us unto Your children as You see proper. Give us the needs to comfort others. Open the eyes of others that don't believe or understand our illnesses. Bless them who do not understand as them who do understand. Bless those with illnessess both short-term and Chronic that they continue to stay in your word.
Apostle Paul's "thorn in His side," did not keep Him from fullfilling His calling.
O mercifull One-I please ask that you bestow Your will upon us-Please allow us to do Your will regardless of our illnesses-Keep us growing strong in Spirit and restore our physical ailments according to Your will, for the greatest Worship is done in hard difficult trying times.
Thank You for bringing us together to support one another in Your Spirit.
In Jesus' Name

I am new to this site which I found while searching the web. For what I am not sure. I am so lost and afraid and confused right now. I have a liver disease called Primary Billiary Cirrhosis. I just got the biopsy results a few days ago and found out I am in stage 3. Stage 4 is liver failure and transplant. I am not well, every day is a struggle but I am trying to be strong, maybe to strong, I am starting to feel the weight of this on my shoulders. I had a stroke 3 years ago and have recovered but am still a very high risk due to reoccuring inflamation in the arteries above my left eye. The stroke was caused when they ruptured and I bled into the brain. Both illness are caused by my ammiune system attacking the cells and organ. The doctors don't know why this is happening. I don't share much. My past experiences have made me a very closed up person. I don't know how else to be but I no I have to find a way to reach out. I am 43 years old and have 2 sons aged 12 and 18. My first marrige ended in divorce, my husband had an affair. We divorced and he married her. He did give me a wonderful son. My second marriage was to a man who I thought was a great choice. He is the son of a minister, very religious family. I thought here is someone who will treat me right. How wrong I was. He was a beater. A year after we married our son was born and he became a different person. He was gone most weekends, drinking, doing drugs and having affairs. We tried councelling and had a family friend visit often, a minister, nothing changed, it got worse. He would hit me on occation and then it progressed to almost daily until I had him arrested and removed from our home. His family wouldn't believe me, they said it takes two and I must be doing something to provoc him? The last beating he broke my foot and fractured a bone in my cheek. He had cleaned out our bank accounts, spent everything. He owned money to many people and no bills were being paid. I am still in debt trying to get my finances in order. Everything was in my name, he was smart. His family never supported me in any way and actually told me I should forgive him every single time. They said I didn't take my vows seriously because it's till death. None of them have seen my son or called to speak with him. I have been totally outcasted. I am telling you this because since that time I have not gone into a church. It really made me question religion. These people were hypocrites. Basically anything goes as long as you feel remose and ask for forgiveness, clean slate after that. So finally after many years I started dating someone who I throughly checked out. He is a wonderful man and I love him very much as do my sons. He has taken the role of father and my son introduces him as such. We have been together for 3 years. I need some guidence. Do you think I am being punished for something? I finally have the life I wanted and now I could die within 2 years. If the new drugs I am taking do not slow down or stop the progression of the disease I will need a transplant within 2 years or sooner. The complications from that could kill me. I just don't understand why these things are happening to me. I did turn my back on God for a long time because I guess I blamed him for that marriage, I don't know. I just want to cry and I have no where to turn. I don't want to upset anyone by sharing my thoughts. I try to talk to God and to pray but I don't feel like he is there for me anymore. I ask that you pray for me to give me strength and let God know I am here and I do need him.

Please pray for my health and strength. I have an "invisible illness." People see me at church, my children's events and I "look fine," but they don't see me when I go home and collapse for days afterwards, due to the fatigue and muscle weakness. Bless you all, and my prayers are for you too!

11/3/2006 08:02

Dear Carolann,
God does know you are there and that you do need Him. I pray that you will once again be able to feel the loving arms of Christ around you.
Love, Jan

I spent a lot of time reading the requests today and see that I am not alone. I have Hepatitis C and Fibromyalgia. Both diseases that until you are either ready for liver transplant (I am stage 3 out of 4) or dying no one believes there is anything wrong with you. I too spend most of my life in bed. I pray that we all know one day why the suffering on Earth happened to us and maybe not to others.
God Bless us all

Thanks for having a place to come to when help is needed. Caring for someone with a chronic illness can be tiring. Tempers, both his, when I'm not sure what he is asking for, and mine, when I don't know what he is asking for and I keep trying and its not right... and it helps to know that others will include us in their prayers. So thanks to all of you! And I will include you in mine.

my husband has two different deases that deals with chronic illness. i'm glad i found this site i am glad this is here.

11/19/2007 22:06

I am new to this part of beliefnet, but I believe it came at a time when I truly need it. I read the prayer for today about living with chronic illness and it literally opened the door to my soul.
I am 50 years old, diagnosed with parkinsons disease 5 yrs ago, and within the last two weeks have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease ( most probably lupus), and emphysema, and copd. I have never smoked, drank, taken drugs. I was doing rather well with my parkinsons. I went from using a walker to walking independent after starting an intensive exercise program along with my meds, and my positive attitude and faith. I have felt better over the past year than I have in a very long time, that was up to about 2 months ago. I started feeling drained, trouble breathing at times. Recently I broke out in an unexplained rash, developed nodules on my fingers and toes, joint and muscle pain, fatigue, and other problems. That is how the new diagnosis came about. I am a very positive person, always optimistic, look on the bright side and trust in God. I have had to handle alot of things in my life and He has always helped me through. But right now, I don't know if I have the energy to fight all these things at one time. I have never doubted God, but I don't understand all this. I just became a grandma in June, Henry is adorable. I want to be part of his life for a long time. I want to fight all this stuff, but I am so overwhelmed!
I am the caretaker for my 80 year old mother in a nursing home, my husband has MS, and we have one 19 yr old daughter still living at home. I ask for your prayers that I am able to deal with all the resposibilites of life and my health in a positive way and be an example of Christ. Thank you for sharing you time with me. I will keep all of you in my prayers as well. God bless you and Happy Thanksgiving.

I AM STRUGGLING WITH LETTING MY TWO SONS GO. They both now are married and in the US ARMY. I pray for their wives and relationships with each other and their children. I know God wants me to step out of the way and let them be but my heart just will not. The enemy is placing negativity in my mind for their futures, what if this happens or what if that happens? I NEED PEACE TO COME UPON ME DEAR LORD, PLEASE!!!

Please pray for my small simple family, I am a single Mom and full time student. I make too much for financial help and to little to survive. The only thing that keeps me strong is my Faith. When the Bills get deep I feel weak and ready to give up trying to make the Bill collectors happy, Please pray for strength and courage. I don't want to be rich, I just need to pay my bills. I don't have credit cards or even cable tv, we live with life"s necessities. Please pray I don't loose our house for the wolves are knocking at the door. Thank you for reading and oppening your heart to us. Have a Blessed Day
