betes(on a 24hr. insulin pump), thyroid disease,HBP, GERD etc. I am sorry that your symptoms are severe. I pray everyday that God will not allow that life journey for me. Please don't give up hope. If you believe that there is a God, know that he is your refuge and your strength; an ever present help in time of trouble.I want to pray for you --Lord, I pray that you hear the prayers of your children that have been afflicted with this awful disease, for we know that this disease is an attack of the enemy. You died on the cross and took stripes on the cross for Stiffman Syndrome and any other disease that we may find ourselves afflicted with. Lord I ask that you send a healing today to these precious few people who are afflicted with SMS. But, if healing is not what you have for them in this life, please be with them and help them to cope and live the best lives they can live.Lead them to the right doctors: allow them to get the treatment and medicine that will help them. I pray that you will touch the hearts of family and friends (let them be sympathetic to the needs of your children). Lord, I know for myself that you answer prayer and that you are a healer, so I say thank you Jesus for answering this prayer. To my SMS sisters and brothers I say :Be encouraged!
