Prayers Needed

I just found out that one of my favorite people on earth has cancer. There is a treatment plan that includes surgery, and for that I am thankful for the plan and hopeful for a full recovery. But, this friend does not live close and it makes me feel helpless. She is strong, with an amazing husband and lots of wonderful children. I want to do what I can. I know I can pray, because I believe in Prayer.

Until there is a need for me to go help I am asking all of you readers to pray from my friend. Pray for L., her husband and her children. Pray for her doctors and her care givers. Pray for researchers who can come up with treatments and cures. Pray for all who suffer with cancer.

I am a doer. I like to make meals for friends who are sick or grieving. I like to go sit with people during treatment or go to the store for them. I am not good not doing something. If you or a loved one went through cancer treatment please tell me what would have been most useful or comforting for you during that time.? I need suggestions on how I can be helpful from afar.

But for now, please pray with me.

    Here are some ideas: Send a card of encouragement every single week. Ask your prayer group at your church to pray for her, and let L know this is happening. Cancer treatments can kill a person’s appetite. Maybe send her husband some cash to go out and buy her ice cream, or anything that she may like, and let her know it is from you. Maybe send a stuffed animal. Keep up with her, if you can, although it may be difficult. Is her birthday coming up? Maybe send flowers. Also, sometimes cards from those praying for her at your church are helpful too.
