Prayer for CFS Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - for Research, Treatment, Finance, Spiritual Healing, Family and Friends, Care and Kindness
Also for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and Fibromyalgia
This is an article of prayer for CFS Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
51 DAYS of prayer are ONGOING at the moment. From 14 February to Easter Sunday. Please join in any time you can.
I wrote these prayers, it had been rare for me to pray for specifics
such as those who finance Chronic Fatigue Syndrome research, or the
researchers themselves, or doctors or taxpayers. It has felt very
rewarding and appropriate to do so.
It can be easy to separate our lives into what is God and what isn't
God. Praying each prayer for CFS support has helped me in my intention
to include God in all things and to see God in all people, including
those that I perhaps forget to bless!
I use the term Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome, but please know that these prayers are also for those
with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia, and other chronic
illnesses with overlapping symptoms such as Lupus and Lyme disease.
adapt the wording as needed and open a channel through your mind and
heart to allow the Love that lies behind all things to enter the world
through your spiritual practice.
Thank you for being here.
