**Vanity ~ A favor: please add my friend's son to your prayer list, terminal melanoma
3-5-07

Posted on 03/05/2007 6:46:14 PM PST by STARWISE

I'm punched in the gut with shock. I was just told that the 28 yr. old son, an only child, of one of my co-workers is in the ICU with terminal melanoma. One of his lungs is already filled with a tumor.

I knew something was afoot, but we never found a moment alone for her to tell me the last time I saw her (I work from home and she's at the office). She kept it very private .. until she couldn't anymore.

I would be most grateful for prayers for Mike and his family. Dear Lord, I just can't get past this is in my mind. 28 yrs. old.

Sweet Jesus, please ... if it's Your will, I pray to you for healing of this terrible affliction in Mike, bring Your comfort and help to Mike and his docs in this struggle. Please bring Your tender mercies, the shelter of Your comfort and peace to Mike and his loving family, whatever Your will. Amen

O Lord our God, Who by word alone did heal all diseases, Who did cure the kinswoman of Peter, You Who chastise with pity and heal according to Your goodness; Who are able to put aside every malady and infirmity, do You Yourself, the same Lord, grant aid to this Your servant Michael and cure him of every sickness of which he is grieved; lift him up from his bed of pain, and send down upon him Your great mercy, and if it be Your Will, give to him health and a complete recovery; for You are the Physician of our souls and bodies, and to You do we send up Glory: to Father, and to Son, and to Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

The Great Physician now is near,
The sympathizing Jesus;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
O hear the voice of Jesus.

Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest name on mortal tongue,
Sweetest carol ever sung,
Jesus, blessed Jesus.

Unto You, O Lord, we bring praise and thanksgiving, for You are Creator God. "He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made." John 1:3.

And it is You who sustains Your creation, for Your Word is trustworthy and true ... "In His hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind." Job 12:10.

Even now, O Lord, in the midst of this dark hour, we plead for the life and breath of a mother's beloved son. Bring forth to Michael the miracle of healing that is so desperately sought, that these parents not be crushed in their agony. Let healing be the portion of their son, to the Everlasting Glory and Honor of Your Name.

May the hearts of family and friends be encouraged, for You have promised not to leave us comfort less. May the Spirit of God fall mightily upon this family, their shattered friends, the medical teams and caregivers, and each one who whispers Michael's sweet name before the Throne of Grace. We unite as one, Lord, as we seek the fullness of years for this mother's child.

Hear our prayer, O Lord ...
Hear our prayer, O Lord ...
Incline thine ear to us
And grant us thy peace. Amen ...

Prayers have been sent. Oh, dear God. I have only one child too - a 23 year old son. I can't even imagine. It hurts just to think of anything happening to him. My sincerest prayers for a miracle for this young man. May Our Lord, in his infinite power, grant healing. And I pray that He may send His mother, Mary, who saw her own son suffer and die, to comfort this man's mother.

Prayers up for God's will and comfort for Mike and family.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Heavenly Father,

I call on You right now in a special way; it is through Your power that I was created. Every breath I take, every morning I wake and every moment of every hour I live under Your power.

Father I ask You to touch me right now in a very special way, for if You created me from nothing, You can certainly recreate me. Fill me with the Healing power of Your Spirit.

Cast out anything that should not be in me. Mend what is broken, root out any unproductive cells, open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild any damaged areas. Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection. Let the warmth of Your Healing love pass through my body to make new any unhealthy areas, so that my body can function the way You created it to function.

And Father restore me to full health in mind, body, soul and spirit so that I may serve You the rest of my life. I make this prayer through Jesus Christ Your Son Our Lord.

Amen.

God
I ask you on behalf of this family. Console, strengthen, encourage, and heal!
Sometimes all we have to offer you<father, is grief and vexation. But you are always merciful beyond out hope. Even if this child should die, we know that you can and will bring good out of this evil and joy out of this sorrow. So when we can no longer think what to ask, still we can rely on you to do the best to our salvation and to your glory.
