Pray for me and my family. My son has cancer, and I believe I am going to be laid off very soon.

My prayers are with you and your family. M.D. Anderson in Houston is the finest cancer treatment center in the country. I'd take a look at it if I were you. God be with you in your time of need.

"dear father, take our friend into your loving embrace and give him peace, courage and strength during this terrible illness that has his son in its grip... keep his son next to your heart, and our friend in your embrace until once again he can walk it alone... in jesus name we ask, amen"

Dear God,
What he said, ...ditto!

PS before that prayer reaches the ceiling...we pray you
would lead him to the right job as well...amen.

Please take comfort in the fact that your son (and you) are in my prayers. Let's go to God for help with the cancer; he loves us all and whenever two or more of us are gathered in His name, He listens. The job thing is something that is nasty, but many of us have gone through and is something at least that you can tackle head on and have some direct effect upon, and may God bless you in your efforts on that end. I pray for God's blessings on the both of you. Please keep us posted.

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion -- inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

Be comforted .... We are praying and the Lord Jesus is close. I was feeling gloomy today because of a bad situation in my life and could barely pray for myself, but how uplifted I felt praying for you.
God bless you

Crisis does not define us, it reveals us. Stay positve. Your son needs you to be strong for him. Put your son's life, and yours in the hands of the Lord and this too will pass.

Father God in the Name of Jesus please be with our brother and his family, touch his son, heal him, comfort him and fill his every need. Please go before our brother and prepare the way for the job he needs and if it's your will that he will remain at this job, don't let anyone or anything interfere with your will. Bless this family.

Prayer for Phathead's Family

Lord, I thank you for the many
times you gave me help,
always listening when I called.
In my darkest moments,
when all seemed to be lost,
there you were, at my side.
The Lord always listens and has pity;
the Lord always comes to our help.
Our mourning you change into dancing;
you always clothe us with joy.
God Bless

O God,

You will not let this bother him anymore!

Stretch forth Your Mighty Arm!
and

Touch him with Your Finger of Fire!
and

Burn the cancer from him now!

Behold the Mighty Hand of God!


Thank you, God!

To paraphrase that great man, Abraham Lincoln, I feel how weak and futile must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming...I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement. Please know that you and your family are in the prayers of friends here in California and all across this free republic. Keep the faith, hope and love.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks that You promise to supply all our needs, according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus ... Philippians 4:19. We claim Your promise for this family so beset with trial. May Your healing hand rest mightily upon this beloved son ... take from him all traces of cancer, we pray. If one door of employment is closed, we thank You that You will open another, such is Your provision. Touch this family with Your mercy, O God, in the Name of Jesus, Amen ...

Phat: Some years back my mother had a run-in with breast cancer. So, I prayed to God to heal her, and by His Grace He did. It's a very old Muslim prayer to God. It invokes God by his attributes. (There are many) In the name of God, the Beneficent-- the Merciful...

O Lord of Majesty and Generosity

O Merciful Lord, Creator of the Heavens and the Earth

O Thou that cleaveth the daybreak

O Thou that nourisheth the little baby

O Thou that forgiveth our sins; and wardest off misfortunes

O Light that consoleth those that are bewildered in darkness

O Thou that answerest howsoever Thou art invoked

Know what-- I can't translate a lot of this-- it's classical Arabic-- so give me a little time. (I'll type it it up Sat)

In any case, may God's mercy and love encompass you and your family-- now and forever. May God remove the disease that plagues your child. May God, in His Majesty, grant you happiness in this life and the next.

May you and your child live a thousand years.

I pray for your son and you. At times like these our troubles seem insurmountable, and sometimes they are. They roll over us like a mountain leaving us alive when we think it should have killed us instead of just changing us.

At times like this all we can do is endure the unendurable, as these unwelcome realities give a new and deeper meaning to the word "endure". When things are so out of control, the only thing left to our control is who we come out being on the other side of it.

I pray for your endurance, I pray for your grace. I pray for your son's healing, and for there to be no job layoff in your future. I pray for God's Holy Spirit to be your strong right arm. To sustain you, to strengthen you, no matter if the future brings victory or defeat in this life.
For the ultimate victory is already won in Christ Jesus, the One who knows how long a minute must be endured, as well as how long a lifetime.
