PRAYER IS THE HEARTBEAT OF CHRONIC JOY

The Chronic Joy Prayer Pond is a safe place to request prayer – and #PrayItForward with Tender-Loving Prayer (TLP) is how you can lovingly pray for others.  There could be no greater catchphrase for prayer than TLP. Prayer can move mountains and usher in miracles. Through prayer, we discover that God is good even when we aren’t healed, the pain doesn’t abate, our situations don’t change, our child remains a prodigal, or our loved one dies. God is good all the time!

“Jesus persisted in heartfelt, humble prayer while surrendering to God’s will over His own. If Jesus modeled this while on earth, especially before the most challenging trial of His life, how much more should we be praying, particularly during seasons of difficulty?” (Nicole Furno)

#PRAYITFORWARD WITH TLP

God calls us to pray humbly and compassionately, growing in selflessness as we learn to sacrifice our time and energy for one another. This is intercessory prayer, a calling to pray for those we know, those we don’t know, those we love, and those who speak against or mistreat us. (Luke 6:27)

TLP is as quick as a few keystrokes. Leave your request, then #PrayItForward for someone else. When you click the “I PRAYED FOR THIS” button, the requester (at their discretion) will receive an email saying, “Someone just prayed for you!” Receiving this message is the very best kind of TLP.

As soon as you leave your request, you will receive an email saying, “Your Prayer Request Has Been Received.” That email includes a link to let us know when your prayer has been answered or to remove your request from the Prayer Pond.

WHY CALL IT THE PRAYER POND?

Chronic illnessmental illnesschronic pain, or disability can deplete our spirits, causing us to feel purposeless, anxious, and alone. Sitting at the edge of a quiet pond, tossing a prayer into its depths, and watching the water ripple out toward the far shores is what happens when we request prayer and share praises. As a community of intercessory pray-ers, we lift one another before the Lord with TLP, blessing one precious life at a time.

How often do we hear, “Prayer is the least I can do,” when prayer is the absolute best we can do?

You are invited to share your prayer requests and praises related to chronic illness to our Prayer Pond using the form below. Once your note is received, we will share it according to your instructions. Feel free visit us often and share updates!

Please pray for my husband who is in so much pain, and for direction and help in his business, and a miracle for him to have surgery.

My stepfather who has Parkinson’s and my mom who is his caregiver.

For strength and courage for me with chronic pain/fatique issues daily, and to be able to see my daughter and grandchildren in July, I haven’t been able to visit with them or any family in over a year. Bless you.

My middle son & his wife are moving home from Alaska, but still 3 hrs from me. They are also expecting their first child. Due to extreme pain and weakness in my muscles I am not able to travel, or able to even hold my grandchild. I'm overjoyed yet utterly heartbroken at the same time. I watch so many others living the life I desperately want. I won't be able to be a normal grandma & that makes me so sad. I accept God's will for my life but it's just so very hard at times.

Prayer people pray for my family and me. Recently our house had a electric fire and was pretty much a major loss. My dad and sister Jessie are working with the insurance adjuster and trying to make lists for all things lost. I haven't been allowed inside at present but pray that some scavaging angels could go to my room and other places and get some of my stuff. My sister is pretty convinced that most of journals and photo books and scrapbook are gone but you can pray for happy surprises.

Good Morning,

I've been suffering for over 18 years with chronic nerve pain in my left leg. It's gotten progressively worse over time. I'm a father to four boys and a husband to a wonderful wife. On 6/4/24, it will be 20 years of marriage. However, our marriage is hanging on by a thread, in large part due to the fact that she can no longer tolerate me and my pain. I ask for prayers both for me and my family in overcoming this monster.

Thank you and God bless!

Everyone’s prayers have been deeply encouraging. I get the notices during some of the darkest moments and they buoy me up. Things got a bit better for a while, but now I’ve developed severe exhaustion and had to cancel a trip to visit my family. it’s scary to be so weak and still dependent on earning my own income, and it’s difficult to be physically alone at home. I’m grateful for ongoing prayer. What a wonderful community this ️

Thank you for your prayers! My family has faced many struggles over the past year, and it has been a reminder of God’s healing love each time I found the message, “Someone just prayed for you!” in my email. Everyone was finally well enough to come together across great distances for my mother’s beautiful celebration of life. Your intercessory prayers have also led to a favorable report for my husband, and his latest scan shows no sign of cancer. God bless you all!
