View Full Version : Need prayer...
Like many of you, I have a lot to contend with. This is my third, painful chronic illness and well, frankly...it's upsetting. I also have two difficult kids and am feeling rather isolated at the moment due to the fact that I'm not working. I'm not working mostly due to my health concerns. There's more to my story...but this is the internet for goodness sakes! I'm taking an antidepressant and going to therapy. I don't feel like I'm depressed in the traditional sense. I do not seem to have many symptoms of depression, but am rather angry about having a lot of illness and pain over the years. I guess I would like prayer for the pain of my pelvic floor condition to get under better control and for me to be able to meet and socialize with some really nice women friends. It's been very hard to meet others and this isolation business is for the birds! Many thanks.

I think it is normal for everyone to feel a bit angry over this diagnosis. Granted, the disease could be much worse (like cancer) but we have an invisible illness that robs us of virtually many aspects of a normal, healthy life. I felt mentally miserable for quite a long time. Many hugs and prayers to you--hang in there.
Sending you some hugs :grouphug: , I know exactly how you feel,seriously,its like enough already!!!!!!!! :cussing: -Hang in there-JOJO
Absolutely! Here are some prayers I ran across a couple of years ago:
You help me relax.
My body may be tired, but spending time with You always leaves me feeling more awake and alive. I can relax in the comfort of Your Spirit and the security of Your acceptance. The weariness of motherhood fades away as You rock me in Your arms. Your words are like a lullaby to my soul. My loving Father, come to Your child now. I need to know You're close. I need to know that I'm not doing this alone.
You are the great Physician.
You know me inside and out. You created my body and only You know how to heal it perfectly. That's what I'm praying for, Father. I know that physical healing isn't always the answer to that prayer, but it is the longing of my heart. And I know the cries of the heart rise to Your throne. Please bless me with the healing I long for. Give me relief. Help me rest in Your healing hands.
You are the Worker of miracles.
You have made the blind see, the deaf hear, the dead rise again. You can heal broken bodies, broken hearts, and broken bones. You have the power to make every area of my life whole and healthy. I'm trusting You to heal me in the way that brings the most glory to You, in Your time and in Your way. That isn't easy to say, Lord. But I want to be wholly Yours. Only You know what that really looks like.
Your love encourages me to keep going.
It's easy to give up when life hurts. That's what I want to do right now. I'm tired, discouraged, and longing to be somewhere, anywhere, other than here. But I know You've placed me here for a season of my life. That's reason enough for me to stay. But I want to do more than just go through the motions. I want to put my whole self into what You have for me today. Energize me with Your love.
You have a plan for me.
Nothing happens to me that You don't know about. Right now I don't understand Your plan for me; it hurts too much to even try. But I trust in Your love. I know You're leading me toward a future that You alone have designed to draw me closer to You. You know that's what my heart truly longs for. Help me not to lose hope when life hurts, but instead help me catch sight of Your hand in the midst of all things.
