Brothers (and sisters),

I would just ask literally a few seconds of your prayer time today and in the near future for my father-in-law, recently diagnosed with cancer (unstaged as of now, but believed to be quite serious).  I sincerely thank you.  Pray as you think best, or even use what I'll type below.  God bless.

 

Almighty God, we ask you humbly, but confidently, to heal Dean of his cancer -- whether that healing happens slowly through gradual shrinkage of the tumor growths -- or whether that healing occurs in a sovereign act by You to simply rid the cancer from his body in total.  We ask that you bestow great wisdom, competence and compassion upon the medical professionals treating him.  We also ask that You hold the family closer than ever to You in this time of uncertainty, anxiety and pain.  May You minister, as only You can, to the physical and emotional needs of all involved.  Through it all, Lord, may Your will be done.  We pray this in the name of our Savior, Jesus.

Amen.

I stand in agreement according to Gods Word with Professor, and my other brothers in Christ here on the AOM,  for the healing of Dean, in Jesus Name!
I am praying for God's healing power to flow into his body and for the peace of God to guard the whole family.
Best wishes for a good oncology team and effective treatment. My thoughts are with him, and all of you.
Will do brother.
Amen.

I'm sorry to hear about your father-in-law.

 

I've been hearing a lot of news about people being diagnosed with cancer lately and am planning on using my lunch break once a week to go to a daily Mass that's followed by a service to pray for those with cancer.  I'll be sure to keep your FIL in my prayers, especially while I'm there.

I have prayed for Dean.  I hope it goes well.

 

My wife's grandfather died over ten years ago and it was really difficult, he was the only really Godly man in either my wife or my family - and he'd had a huge impact on many people and yet God took him fairly young, 65 - many times I've faithlessly questioned or even accused God for that - but now years later I'm starting to see why it went this way.

 

I hope whatever happens, you will see glory brought to God and good for His people.

Count me in.
