Words Of Encouragement
The word “cancer” strikes fear and panic in almost everyone. It’s not something we want to hear.
Cancer robs us of living a long life, but even worse, it can rob us of the joy and peace that God gives to us when we place our trust in Him.
When the diagnosis of cancer is uttered, one’s first reaction is to find the best oncologist and treatment.
We resort to acting on panic rather than relying on God.
Regardless of what you or your medical team does, your life is not under their control or yours.
Your life sits within the palm of God’s loving hand.
When you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, the first thing to do is pray.
God’s going to give you the strength that you will need to go through this storm, and He will be right by your side the entire time. You won’t be alone.
There are storms that come up in our lives where our faith and trust in God will be tested. It’s through these times that we grow as believers.
If you are in a season of your life where your faith is under fire, don’t lose hope. Your God will not let go of you (Isaiah 41:10.)
No matter what you are facing, even if it’s cancer, you can have abundant peace and find endurance by trusting in God.
His perfect and loving will shall be done in your life!
If you have a friend or loved one that has cancer, you can approach God on their behalf by praying for them.
Ask God to use you in whatever way He deems good and useful.
Spend time with them and read scripture to them.
Your kindness and love shown towards them glorify God through your unselfish servanthood.
Prayer For Cancer
Dear Healer of Healers and Holy God,
Please hear my cry, oh Lord, during my hour of need. I come before you to ask for forgiveness of sin that hides deep within.
Reveal to me those things which I have not confessed and repented of.
Father, I need your peace to wash over my anxiety.
Help me to be confident in your powerful grace and forgive me when I grow weak with fear.
Use me to glorify you through the pain and struggles of cancer.
I give myself to you, Father, and place my body, mind, and soul into your hands.
Please guide the hands and minds of every medical team member that helps me. Let me be a vessel Lord to touch their lives and hearts.
Help me to keep my attention on the things above and not cancer.
I believe that you will use cancer for my good and that your perfect will be done.
I pray for strength and peace for those I love. Help them to place their trust in you.
I trust in you, Lord, for you are the Almighty Healer. I pray these things in Jesus’ name – amen.
Prayer For Someone With Cancer
Dear Heavenly Father,
I pray earnestly for those who are struggling with cancer.
We are all so anxious and fearful as we stand by their side through this devastating illness. But with you on our side, Lord, we have nothing to fear.
So calm our hearts, and help us to trust in you every step of the way. Through the highs and the lows, you are sovereign over it all.
I believe that nothing is impossible for you, for you are a miracle-working God.
So I know that you are able to heal every cancerous cell in their bodies; I know that with just one word, you can make the sickness disappear.
And this is my heartfelt and sincere desire.
But if is not your will that they would be healed, give us all peace to accept what is ahead.
If bodily healing is not in your plan, then grant spiritual healing to everyone affected by this situation.
God, give strength and courage to those who are suffering, as well as their loved ones. Surround them with your love and comfort.
Let their faith be a testament to your greatness, to everyone looking in from the outside.
Above all, Lord, be glorified in this struggle and whatever lies beyond it. You can and will use every broken situation, in ways that we don’t understand.
So as we wait for this all to unfold, give us patience and endurance.
I pray this in the powerful name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
