Heavenly Father, we thank You so much for this day. Thank You for blessing us with it. Thank You for being the light in this dark world. We thank You for the enormous blessings that You send our way. Thank You for the opportunity to serve others in Your name.
We lift up Jim and all cancer patients to You. Please wrap Your arms around him, and all of them and be with them, give them comfort, strength and peace during this battle. They need Your care and attention. Please be with them in this journey and, where it’s Your will, bring about healing to their bodies. Please be with our families as well as we join our loved ones on this journey.
Help Jim, Tasha, Shanna and Niki, and all of us to know Your love and care for us. We know You hear and listen to our prayers. Let us find the peace of Your Son and find, through Him, comfort in our sadness, certainty in our doubt, and courage to live through this hour. Gently wipe away every tear from our eyes. Make our faith strong through Christ our Lord.
We pray for Your hand over Jim's (and Tasha's) care and the care provided to other cancer patients. Guide with wisdom and skill the minds and hands of the medical people, caregivers and family members who minister to all of them in Your name. If it is Your will, grant that every cause of illness be removed from Jim, and restore him to soundness of health.
Through these challenges and difficult times, help Jim and all of us to learn to live in more perfect harmony with You and all those around us.
We ask all this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
