Dear God – You are the Father of all mercies and God of all comfort.
Comfort me I pray, as I face this unexpected cancer, which I have been told is now terminal.
Though I don’t understand why this has happened, I do believe that everything that takes place in the lives of each of Your children, has a wider purpose, in Your plan for our lives. Give me courage to hold onto the truth of Your word, for I know Your plans for me are all for good.
Help me to face the future with courage and peace. Lord there are many things that I had planned to do which now seem to have simply evaporated – but I pray that in the time that I have left you will hold me steady and help me to face the future with great courage and in the knowledge that You are my ever present help in times of trouble.
I ask this in the name of Jesus – and thank You
