Share Your Prayer Requests at the Prayer Pond
You’re invited to share your prayer requests in a judgment-free zone. While we love to pray for you by name, we’ve included an anonymous option, because we understand that sometimes just the effort to share a request is vulnerable and hard.
At Chronic Joy®, we pray for you. We pray over every request. If you share your address with us (which is always kept confidential) we would love to send you a note of encouragement.
Before you leave the Prayer Pond, please #PrayItForward by lifting others’ requests. When you click the “I PRAYED FOR THIS” button, the requester will get an email saying, “Someone just prayed for you.” What an honor to love and serve one another in prayer!
Whenever we pray – on sleepless nights, in the heat of the day, or as dawn breaks on a new day, God will hear us.
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. (Psalm 55:17)
You are a precious, vital member of the Kingdom of God and of this community. We’re glad you’re here. Grateful for your presence. Blessed to lift you in prayer.
YOU’RE INVITED TO…
Nurture and grow your relationship with Jesus.

My uveitis and glaucoma are out of control. My ophthalmologist informed me last Thursday that I likely will be blind before 9/30. In 1966, 1994, and 2012 I got the same diagnosis and God healed my blindness. My next appointment is 9/29. We will learn the results of Karen's neuropsych testing. We're hoping for a diagnosis and treatment. Thank you for your prayer and friendship and prayers.

I am very sick with many ailments. It has taken over my life and my body. My family is scared to lose me, especially after losing my brother after a 1 year battle with cancer at the young age of 22. I am asking family and friends to pray that this new treatment is not too hard on me. I pray it helps.

I would appreciate it if all of you would join me in prayer for wisdom from God in a situation I'm facing. In recent months, our church has been emphasizing God's healing power, and I sensed God wanted me to go up for prayer in July for a new injury, a painful wrist that has become even more painful since that prayer. I now know I have advanced tendinitis is this wrist. At this point, I am asking the Lord for wisdom in what whether God will heal this wrist or if I should set the surgeon.

I am beginning to taper a medication that have the potential to have withdrawal symptoms. I have been suffering from extreme anxiety. Please pray I will not have any anxiety withdrawal symptoms. That I would only feel better as this medicine leaves my system. Thank you.

Please pray for my husband's dear aunt and cousin. His beloved uncle died this past Christmas after a very long battle with mesothelioma, and on top of handling his illness with grace and courage, my aunt has been struggling with rheumatoid arthritis. Her daughter is presently being treated for lymphoma. They have always had strong faith, but prayers for the easing of their physical trials and for the family members who care for them would be greatly appreciated.

My uveitis and glaucoma are more severe. This week I've had to wear sunglasses to reduce the glare & pain & optic nerve damage. I can't dial a phone, use our microwave oven, or read text smaller than 14 to 24-point type. The drug Acthar injections are causing very high blood pressure, increased sweating, water retention, weight gain (26 pounds last two months), and redness. And mood swings. Thank you for your prayers.
