Overcoming Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
All fatigue does not fall into the category of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Most people at one time or another have feelings of apathy and energy loss — times when they go to bed tired and get up tired.
There are cases of fatigue that last for weeks, months, or even years. The medical profession has not determined the causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and does not know its cure. In most individuals it simply runs its course.1 Where there is no way, Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. God sent His Word to heal you and deliver you from all your destructions (Ps. 107:20).
According to those who have shared their experience with this syndrome, they have flu-like symptoms — they feel achy with a low-grade fever. One person who suffers from it and for whom we pray is considered disabled and cannot work regularly.

You and I are created triune beings — spirit, soul, and body (1 Thess. 5:23). The Apostle John wrote, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (3 John 2).
God’s Word is medicine to our flesh (Prov. 4:20-22 AMP). If any type of medication is to bring relief and a cure, it is necessary to follow the prescribed dosage. This is true with “spiritual” medicine. It is imperative to take doses of God’s Word daily through reading, meditating, and listening to healing tapes. The spirit, soul, and body are interrelated; it is the Word of God that brings the entire being into harmony.
God made us and knows us inside and out. He sent His Word to heal us and to deliver us from all our destructions (Ps. 107:20). Prayer prepares us to take action. Jesus said that if we pray in secret, our Heavenly Father will reward us openly (Matt. 6:6). Prayer includes praise, worship, and petition.
Prayer prepares us for change — it equips us for action. It puts us in tune and in harmony with the Spirit of God Who is hovering over the face of the rivers of living waters, residing within us (Gen. 1:2; John 7:38). He is waiting for us to speak, to move — to act out our faith. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is revealed in the names ascribed to Him — Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby (John 16:7 AMP). He is with us and in us (John 14:17).
Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before Your throne of grace to receive mercy and to find grace to help in time of need. May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to You, the God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) for You have blessed me in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm!
Father, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a curse, not a blessing. Jesus became a curse and at the same time dissolved the curse. And now, because of that, the air is cleared and I can see that Abraham’s blessing is present and available for me. I am able to receive Your life, Your Spirit, just the way Abraham received it.
Christ, the Messiah, purchased my freedom with His very own blood, and the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of my new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.
Christ lives in me. The Spirit of You Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in me. You, Father, are restoring to life my mortal (short-lived, perishable) body through Your Spirit Who dwells in me.
You, Sovereign Lord, have given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. You waken me morning by morning, waken my ear to listen like one being taught.
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].
You are my Light and my Salvation — whom shall I fear or dread? You are the Refuge and Stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid? You, Lord, are my Shield, my Glory, and the Lifter of my head. With my voice I cry to You, and You hear and answer me out of Your holy hill. I lie down and sleep, I awaken again, and You sustain me.
Father, I put on Your whole armor; and, having done all, I stand, knowing that You are watching over Your Word to perform it. Your Word will not return to You void [without producing any effect, useless], but shall accomplish that which You please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which You sent it.
Lord, You used Your servant body to carry my sins to the cross so I could be rid of sin, free to live the right way. Your wounds became my healing.
I throw off the spirit of heaviness and exchange it for a garment of praise. Thank You for the superhuman energy which You so mightily enkindle and work within me.
In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
