About Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia affects an estimated 2 to 4 percent of the US population or as many as 6 to 12 million people.

Widespread pain and fatigue, and cognitive difficulties (often called “fibro fog”) are some of the fibromyalgia symptoms that can impact every aspect of your life.

Although fibromyalgia affects both men and women, approximately 90 percent of fibromyalgia sufferers are female. It is estimated that there could be as many American women living with fibromyalgia as there are living with diabetes.

A Prayer for Fibromyalgia

But as for me, afflicted and in pain—may your salvation, God, protect me. The poor will see and be glad—you who seek God, may your hearts live! The Lord hears the needy and does not despise his captive people.  Psalm 69:29, 32,33

Dear Lord,

Thank You for seeing this deep pain of fibromyalgia that seems to be our captor some days. When we feel so afflicted and so despised, thank You for hearing the cries of our needy hearts. Help us to see that You have sent Your salvation for us. Our hearts will live within Your own dear protection. Thank You for calling us Your people. We are filled with gladness in Your presence.

In the name of Jesus, we pray,

Amen.
