I Want Prayer For Fibromyalgia
jerry6593--There's only one case where I would NOT pray for someone's healing...
That would be if they are elderly, in pain and a Christian expressing the desire to go home.
---Donna66 on 8/9/09|
Donna: Isn't there some condition under which you would not pray for someone's healing.
---jerry6593 on 8/7/09|
Jerry--No, I didn't miss the point.
You couldn't make your point, so now
you changed your argument! NOW you WILL pray for the sick... and AFTER they are HEALED, pray for their deliverance from cigarettes.
That's more like it.
---Donna66 on 8/6/09|
Donna: "If a person already has lung cancer, simply quitting smoking isn't going to make a difference (except he might cough a little less)."
You miss the point. Suppose the whole church prays for him, the elders annoint him, lay hands on him and he is miraculously healed. If he continues his 4-pack-a-day habit, what then. Does he not then make a mockery of God's mercy and grace? Is not his sin then enshrined as acceptable behaviour?
1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

We are branches on a vine called to bear much fruit. It is not for the branches to prune but to bear fruit. Not even the vine prunes as of yet, but you placed yourself right out there with the husbandman pruning and nipping and tucking, "waste of my time and God's", you said.
Do you contact your enemies to see if they smoke, that you would not pray for them? I have been where you are, but am persuaded to pray both for healing and deliverance.

If a person already has lung cancer, simply quitting smoking isn't going to make a difference (except he might cough a little less).
He should have quit long ago...but he didn't...so he deserves cancer and shouldn't be prayed for? C'mon.
I will pray for anybody who is sick anytime, if they ask it. The Jews in Jesus' day believed that sickness was always due to sin.
But that didn't stop Jesus from healing the sick.
---Donna66 on 8/5/09|
Nana: Would you pray for divine healing for the heavy smoker with lung cancer who refuses to quit smoking? Don't you think that you should rather pray that God give him victory over this sinful habit?
---jerry6593 on 8/5/09|
Be healed in Jesus name!
---Glenn on 8/3/09|
I am with Donna and Alan, Jerry. As Peace goes, I give you peace from my end and am sure both Donna and Alan do the same, but I would not give you the upper hand on this.
---Nana on 8/2/09|
Donna: It must be that "silly" is in the eye of the beholder.
---jerry6593 on 8/3/09|
Jerry 6593 --
You said the following:
>>I don't believe in praying for healing for someone if they are causing the illness by poor lifestyle choices.<<
My response was:
>>Do you likewise refuse to pray for sinners until they abandon their sin?"
Sounds like a logical parallel to me.
Not unwarranted. Not silly.
---Donna66 on 8/2/09|
Alan: No, I disagreed with Donna's unwarranted contention that I would not pray for sinners. That's why I said "don't be silly." Peace!
---jerry6593 on 8/1/09|
In your previous post, you seemed to disagree with Donna when she had said "Not all diseases are due to lifestyle."
So I thought you said all diseases are caused by lifestyle.
I seem to have misunderstood you, and in fact we agree.
---alan8566_of_uk on 7/31/09|
Exzucuh, I agree with many of the things you say but have to disagree with you on this one. You said, "The root of All sickness and disease is sin. Sin must be forgiven then the sickness cannot have power over the Body. It is pride in the church that keeps healing from taking place"
Exzucuh, as long as there is sin in the world, people are going to die of some reason or another. Even if sin is forgiven once cancer enters the body, almost all times the result will be death no matter if you are forgiven or not. Been forgiven is spiritual healing. My sister died of lung cancer and she did not smoke, drink and was a runner every morning. Even the people Jesus healed died.
---MarkV. on 7/31/09|
Alan: Don't be silly! You know very well that nuclear radiation (an environmental factor), and not a demon, caused your friend's daughter's cancer.
You prove my point. Diseases are CAUSED - they do not appear by magic, or (generally) by the caprice of God.
Pro 26:2 .... the curse causeless shall not come.
---jerry6593 on 7/31/09|
Don't be silly yourself.
My friend's daughter is a victim of Chernobyl, like thousands of her fellows.
Demons cause their cancers?
---alan8566_of_uk on 7/27/09|
Donna66: "Nobody knows what causes Fibromyalgia...not even you. Not all diseases are due to lifestyle."
Exo 15:26 If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for am the LORD that healeth thee.
"Do you likewise refuse to pray for sinners until they abandon their sin?"
Don't be silly.
---jerry6593 on 7/25/09|
That is a very kind and heartfelt prayer you made. As for these 'hardened' boys, they are overstepping their place.
---Nana on 7/20/09|
Lord God we ask you in Jesus name to heal those who are afflicted by this disease and to lead all of us into all truth by the holy ghost as you said you would where 2 or 3 agree in Jesus name touching any thing it shall be done and we thank you Lord and we know that you are faithful and just to forgive us if we ask we also thank you for nullifying the affects of sin on the cross for those who are willing to receive it and obey your word praise be to your holy name forever and ever amen
---Rodney on 7/20/09|
Shame on those who are blaming this man for his illness!! It reminds me of when the disciples asked Jesus who's sins were responsible for the blindness of a man! His reply was that neither's sin caused it but in the end, this would glorify God. To the man suffering, you have my prayers.

jerry6593- Nobody knows what causes Fibromyalgia...not even you. Not all diseases are due to lifestyle.
Do you likewise refuse to pray for sinners until they abandon their sin?
---Donna66 on 7/20/09|
I don't believe in praying for healing for someone if they are causing the illness by poor lifestyle choices. For example, praying for a lung cancer patient who refuses to quit his 4-pack-a-day smoking habit is a waste of my time and God's. Suppose God did heal him - wouldn't God then be glorifying the sin which afflicted him.
So Mr. Brendan, are you doing everything you know to do to assist God in your healing. Are there no diet and lifestyle changes that you should make? Fibromyalgia is a symptom of a toxic body. Try a natural cleansing regimen, and adopt a healthy diet and lifestyle.
---jerry6593 on 7/20/09|
The root of All sickness and disease is sin. Sin must be forgiven then the sickness cannot have power over the Body. It is pride in the church that keeps healing from taking place.
worldly people receive more healing because of their acknowledgment of their evil ways and Jesus came to heal those that need a physician. Christians call themselves sinners saved by Grace when trying to justify their sin but they get offended when you tell them that the sin they confess is causing their sickness and will not repent. Jesus healed some in sin and told them go and sin no more lest something worst comes on you.

Our best medical experts do not understand this tormenting disease called "fibromyalgia", but YOU DO.
If there is a drug that will help, we ask that you speed the research and bring it to market quickly.
If there are natural substances that can help, make them available to those who suffer, no matter the cost.
You have done this in the case of other diseases. We ask that you do it now.
Make those for whom this is a daily trial, strong in faith and in will. Let Your presence be known to them as they struggle, that they might have a measure of your peace.
For those who believe you for a miracle, show them your faithfulness and mighty power.
In Jesus name, Amen
---Donna66 on 7/14/09|

I developed it right after I retired. They kept giving me anti-inflamatory drugs that did not help. Found out that Fybromyalgia is not a flammatory problem from a specialist after some years of suffering. I went on Lyrica and felt pain free for the first time but after 2 weeks found I was allergic to it so I can't take it. For those not allergic is is a miracle drug. One specialist gives his patients Hydrocodone, a mild narcotic pill and he saw no bad results over long periods of time, so that's what I take. It does give me some hours each day relief so I can function. However, a lot of doctors do not recommend this. Praying that the Lord in His good time will let man find the cure. One positive thing is that it is not life threatening.

My wife has been suffering with fibromyalgia for appox 8 years. There are mornings she wakes up in so much pain she is crying. She has seen several Dr's and is taking a lot of different medications, nothing seems to really help. Can someone give me some advise on how we can deal with this. I have been praying every day and night that it would just go away. it seem's to just be getting worse.
---Michael on 6/8/09|
certainly, how are you today Fr Brendan - did the new meds help - i pray god has healed you already, be blessed.
---Andrea on 9/8/07|
I will pray for you and others because I myself have suffered to the point of suicide thoughts two years ago.God brought a person into my life that shared a juice that has been a God sent to me and would you believe it but the name of the fruit it is made from means Gift from God.If you would like me to share more about it contact me here shonn4493.I would love to pray for you and share what has been a true blessing to me.

I have had fibromyalgia for decades and have learned to cope with it quite effectively. It took a lot of practice ! And a lot of moaning and groaning and tears along the way. There is light, though. Prayers help a great deal.
---Barbara_J_Gill on 9/11/06|
Good news to share. Pregabalin is the answer to the symptoms of fibromyalgia. I am taking part in a durability study. The drug will be released in the Fall and availabe under the name of Lyrica, by Pfizer. The results are amazing.
---Becky on 6/12/05|
Jack is correct about there being no instant diagnosis. I've suffered with chronic pain and fatigue since I was a teenager, but wasn't diagnosed with fibromyalgia until 1990. There are days when simply getting out of bed takes nothing less than sheer willpower. Some days, I just wish I could sleep for a week and forget the pain and fatigue. I will pray for you, Fr, and all others, as I pray for myself. God grant us peace and healing.

Dear prayer friend,
I am a monk. To be specific I am an Eastern Christian monk that follows the Byzantine rule of prayer and daily worship. Any such man is addressed as "Father." Hence, the Fr. at the beginnig of my name
---Fr._Brendan on 6/1/05|
HI--I also have fibromyalgia--which, as you know is very painful among other things-- Ihave improved a lot since I started watching my diet, and taking natural supplements--I worked at a healthfood store for approx. 5 yrs and was fortunate enough to gather info on fibromyalgia--I take ginger--(3) 3 times a day--You can get it at Walmart, magnesium with malic acid is very effective for the pain--and bromelain, those two supplemnts you will need to get at a healthfood store.
---barbara on 6/1/05|
Dear Prayer Friend, Fibromyalgia (aka fibromycitis, fibromalasaia, FMS, and in the 19th century chronic rheumatism) is NOT a women's-only disease, though it's frequently perceived as such. Perhaps this is what kept the AMA from considering it a real disease until 1995. But the pain is VERY real!
I know several men who suffer from it.
There is no positive test for fibro. It's a diagnosis by elimination. It's not this, it's not that--after testing for everything, what's left is fibro.
---Jack on 6/1/05|
What does Fr mean?
Isn't fibromyaligia a women's condition only?
I need some education here.
Other pain conditions might be arthritis or rheumatism.
Remembering in prayer - all pain suffers.
---prayer_friend on 6/1/05|
I have this as well as chronic fatigue. Praps we can start an online support group?
drop me a line.

---Dorine on 6/1/05|
prayer is the onlyway I can help at the moment. I rpay in the name of the Lord Jesus to grant you His healing touch. Above all, may the Holy Spirit help you to have a good attitude even in the midst of pain and more adversities in life. All in His own sweet and perfect time, your desires will be answered. May the Lord continue to comfort and to encourage you in this situation. Take heart, be of cheer.

Must be comfortably warm, not too hot. You can make your own very cheaply. One and a half pounds grain, bag size app. 5" x 14" This will wrap round neck/waist. 8" x 8" square will do if necessary. I use one for back pain. DON'T use heat treatment if you are taking something like ibuprofen for inflammatory pain. Adding more heat will just make the inflammation worse, but the bags can be kept in fridge (wrapped in plastic) also and used when a cold pack is needed.
---Xanthi on 6/1/05|
Yes I will pray for you and others with this condition. My own sister-in-law has had it for many years but it went undiagnosed for a long time and she was labelled a malingerer, work-shy etc. She used to be in a lot of pain with this and still is at times. A very simple help for the pain in a wheat bag. A simple bag filled with wheat grains and heated in the microwave for about two minutes. Place against the pain. Cont'd.
---Xanthi on 6/1/05|
That was so nice of you.I think you will get many responses,as many suffer with it.I hope you have been able to get good treatment,although there is no cure, except a healing from the Great Physician. I see a doctor who has 22yrs experience with research,treating paients,& is a pain management specialist.I definately have less pain and stiffness. I pray the Lord heals all who suffer and helps others not yet diagnosed to understand what it is and how to make modifications in their life. God Bless You. Pat
