“Dear Geevetha, I’m Emma Louise and I’ve been diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. My dreams are shattered and my heart cries as my husband left me and my 5 year old daughter, knowing that I’m going to die. I know there are a great number out there praying for people like me. Please send a prayer that I may be cured and look after my daughter who has only me now. Thank you and God bless”.
I’m so moved with compassion and I just couldn’t say “No” to this and I ask you, my friends, brothers and sisters, to pray for Emma Louise, who is in double agony.
We also remember our other brothers and sisters, (including Anna Heiland) who are battling cancer. Whilst at prayer, may we also pray that there be lesser “marriages of convenience” and more marriages of seeing a lifetime together.
Prayer for those struggling with cancer
Heavenly Father, we lift up our dearest sister Emma Louise who is undergoing a storm in life. She’s been diagnosed with cancer and the doubled agony of losing her husband due to her ailment. We also pray for all those waiting in hope, battling cancer in their lives.
Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Your blessed name. We pray for Your merciful heart to surround these with love, strength and courage. We ask Your hands to touch them with the power of healing.
May they be directed to the right treatment in Your blessed name as we ask You Lord to represent the physicians, doctors and medical care aids and administer them in Your spirits.
Let every cancerous cell be cast out and replaced with good one. May every spot of this deadly cell be wiped out by Your powerful hands.
Most of all, we pray Your will be done . May it be that they be cured of their illness and be blessed with a joyful hope of living without fear, anxiety and pain.
Praying for marriages during illnesses
Lord Jesus, we pray that Emma Louise be comforted in the failing of her husband in her time of illness. May she be strengthened to know that You will never forsake those who believe in You. You are ever close to the broken hearted.
We pray that her husband comes to his senses. May he offer his help, care and love at this point when it’s needed most of him.
Lord, may this be an eye opener for those who enter into marriage and take their vows before You. May they always remember their promises, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to ever live together, till death do them part.
Lord Jesus, Healer of all souls and sorrows , come to the aid of our dear brothers and sisters who are faced with terminal illness. Take them under Your mighty wings of healing, we pray. AMEN!
Isaiah 53:3-5 – He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
My LORD JESUS, My Rock, My Fortress AMEN! Geevetha Mary Samuel is a working, widowed mother of 4 wonderful young adults.
