Prayer for Safe Housing
for those with ME/CFS and other
Housing for many people living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a real problem.
Unsuitable housing (along with other aspects of physical support) can impact on someone's chances of healing from ME/CFS as well as from any chronic illness.

These fumes explained many of my
symptoms and why they could worsen dramatically during a day for no apparent reason! Once they were blocked I experienced an improvement in health.
I have been asked to move a total of three times, in each case because the landlord wished
to return to live in the property.
Prayer for housing has been a big part of my journey to
raise my chance of health improvement.
