    I have a dear friend who is in a bad FM & IBS flare, she is very down with the pain etc. I know we all know what this is like & I just thought a few of us praying together would help her.
    I don't know why these things afflict us, God does though, so I can only hand it back to Him for help to get through whenever we flare.
    Thank you for all who respond.
    Linda.

    Hi,
    You said, "I don't know why these things afflict us, God does though".

    I agree! When Jesus was on the cross he said, "My God, My God WHY have you forsaken me". Those of us who are ill for so long ask WHY so much. WHY can I not work any longer? WHY do I have to suffer so much pain and/or fatigue? WHY does my husband and/or children have to suffer b/c I can't take care of stuff? WHY, WHY, WHY???

    However, God does not always answer the WHY's in life but he does promise TO BE WITH US. I try to do deep breathing and remember his presence even when I don't feel it. God is with me. God is with your friend. God is with you. Let this soak in and bring you comfort today. I will pray for a strong presence of God in the life of your friend.

    Praying that God will give your friend comfort and a lift. With these DDs, there are so many hard times, it just becomes our way of life. What a way to live, I can`t wait to someday know the reason why we went through all this.

    I hope she gets to feeling better soon. I`m sure these prayers will help.

    Thank you for being the special person you are. I have found the good things in life never last~~~~~ but neither do the bad...... And this too shall pass.
    Thank you for the thoughts, and the prayers, all of you.

    Thank you Mikie,Kathy,Sandy,Beadlady,Della & Judy, your prayers are much appreciated, my friend is a bit better, so I know your prayers helped. The scripture that states"two or three gathered together" definately pours to God's throne. I am grateful, & so is my friend.
    Asatrump, you are welcome !
    My friend is very dear to me, we haven't known each other for more than 8 months or so, we have never met, but both of us have found support from the other & understanding with this dd. Email is an amazing thing!

    I am touched daily by you. In the beginning you thought I was saving you, but my dear one, we save each other. Everybody has some bad and dark times, and flares. Thanks for being there for ME, and I promise with God's help to continue to be there for you.
    We share, we communicate, we live over half a world apart, but mainly we listen and love. Lord I thank you for the great gift you have given me in this humble person.
