Prayer Request for Father-in-Law
10 February 2005 | self

Posted on 02/10/2005 6:36:45 PM PST by Lexinom

Wife's dad has inoperable lung cancer. Radiation and chemo are in the offing.

He's 56. He is not a believer.


TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: cancer; heal; prayer
I would ask you to pray for a general healing, but more importantly for these peoples' immortal souls.

Thank you.

We just found out it is the small-cell variety (very bad), in an early stage (good). His wife is a nurse, and says the doctors are optimistic.

I am not sure if "small-cell lung cancer" and "mesothelioma" are the same thing.

Will be praying mostly that he comes to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

I was up in your part of the state two weeks ago. Should be up there in another 3-4 weeks. Maybe we can get together for lunch or something.

Father, I pray for the healing of this man.
Open his heart to the truth of the gospel.
Without the move of Your Spirit we have no hope, but Your Grace!

I ask for mercy, Lord.
You, and You alone have infinite love and power.
Grant us our prayer.
I thank You,
In Jesus Name I pray.

Christ never forgets us.. when we abandon him, he still watches and waits.. ever caring and patient.. I pray that your father-in-law discovers hope and comfort in Him, becoming one of His children and facing the battle with hope and grace... My sincerest thoughts are with you...
Salvation - Thank you so much for adding me to this list... I have found such comfort in the daily readings... I am in the middle of starting a new International Business, keeping me up to my ears in work, you have given me a path to reflect and thank Him for his guidance and faith in my skills.. I shall be ever grateful..

I am a new member. An ambulance just took my 3 month old grandchild to the hospital. He wasn't breathing. Would you please have the prayer chain pray for him. His name is Ethan Michael.

will do Lex - prayers up

Lex - I have a good friend who was diagnosed with asbestosis and lung cancer about 10 yrs ago - He was progressed to a point where his days were few - too late for chemo - too late for rad........they gave him about 6 mos...

He's still alive today and attributes that solely to the power of prayer. The Dr is at a loss to explain it.

You and I know otherwise

God bless

Rev

Heavenly Father, we return to thank You for this community of believers ... thank You that we can come before the Throne of Grace for the wellbeing of precious Ethan Michael. Pour out Your wisdom upon those caring for this little one ... grant unto them the knowledge that they are instruments of Your healing. Grace this child with the touch of Your healing hand, O God, and restore him unto his family. May they find refuge, strength, and comfort in You and Your Word in this dark hour. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

Heavenly Father, we return to thank You that in Your hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:10. Touch the soul of this beloved father, that he would be cleansed by the Blood of the Lamb ... touch the body of this beloved father-in-law, that he would be cleansed of this disease ... touch the spirit of Your creation, O God, that he would know that, through Christ, he will live with You forever. Bring Your redeeming Word and meet his every need, Merciful Father, in the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

I join in prayer with the others here that your wife's dad will have every opportunity to hear the Word so that if he has ears to hear, he will come home. I also lift him up for healing, extended earth time according to the Father's will and peace and blessing for all the family.

If he has any money to speak of, my family has found something which works EXTREMELY WELL and FAST (even with people told they only have "a few days to live") in stopping cancer dead in it's tracks---and keeping it in check---with NO negative side effects! It's called PolyMVA. I have to warn you---it is VERY expensive, but it WORKS!

I have absolutely NO personal or financial benefit from the product---I have just seen it REVERSE and REDUCE my Mom's cancer marker numbers by approximately 50% and keep them in check since September, 2002!

It has helped EVERYONE I know who has tried it! My sister wrote a testimonial about my now nearly 86 year old Mom on the PolyMVA cancer survivors website.

We are just SO thrilled that she AVOIDED CHEMO and RADIATION and the SICKNESS that goes along with KILLING your GOD-CREATED immune system instead of BUILDING it up to enable it to kill off cancer as GOD intended it to do. I just can't say enough good things about it!

The following was taken from the website:

"Poly MVA is a new, nontoxic, powerful antioxidant formula that protects both cellular DNA and RNA. The scientifically designed mechanism of action is to “fix the cell” and control the cancer, rather than “fight the cancer” and poison the system. This method of cancer treatment has clearly demonstrated safe, antitumoral activity. Compared to chemotherapy, Poly MVA offers an extremely powerful alternative cancer treatment without the toxic side effects associated with most Conventional Cancer Treatments."

"Poly MVA is proving to be a viable alternative cancer treatment due to its patented antiaging formula. Many of the signs we contribute to aging can be slowed through the Poly MVA cell protection. Doctors and Patients worldwide are reporting the benefits of Poly MVA and its antiaging formula."

In the meantime, I have offered my prayer to GOD for your father-in-law and family. May the LORD bless you all!

My wife received the news this morning that radiation/chemo would prolong his life by six months perhaps.

Frank has elected to forgo treatment. Doctors give him one year to live.

Thank you all for standing with us on this.
