Rheumatoid Arthritis Support

Another kind of Rheumatoid Arthritis Therapy

Before every meal, we say grace. Most families do that.  However, there’s a difference at my house.

No matter which of my children is praying, they add my Rheumatoid Arthritis. They pray like this: “Lord, please heal Momma.” They never forget.

It’s not like a duty. No one reminds them to do it. Yet they never forget.

I can’t remember when they started, but I think it was from the beginning of the “full blown” Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms. By the time I’d first gone to a rheumatologist, they had begun to pray this way. It was the most natural thing for them.

Living with RA was not something that they would just accept. So, they did the only thing they could. They asked God to take it away.

It’s that simple: compassion, concern, and then commitment.

What is Rheumatoid Arthritis compared to devotion

The children did not plan to do this. I know they don’t even talk about it. But I am sure that it will continue as long as I am living with symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis.

It is a demonstration that there is hope beyond this wall to wall RA.

This is not a post about whether prayer works. You might say that it doesn’t since I am still living with Rheumatoid Arthritis. But you might be wrong because it has worked – in an additional way. Do not forget to count the courage to live with RA and overcome RA that is poured into me each time I hear them pray.

Do you and your family pray about RA?
