I know what I want and I want it to be God’s will. Is it? Only God knows.
What do I want?
I want healing for my 35 year old cousin who is a daughter, sister, wife and mother of 3 young girls.
Stomach cancer. Spread significantly.
Words that we all dread.
A young woman.
A born again Christian.
What can one say? How should one pray?
I believe that nothing is impossible with God, nothing is impossible for God. — “Behold, I AM the Lord…is anything too difficult for me?” – Jeremiah 32:27
I know and believe that God CAN heal her – God can do anything.
I am praying for her, for her family, her husband, children, mother and father and siblings. Her support system. Her loved ones.
I am praying that God will give them all strength to face whatever lies ahead in the coming days and weeks.
I really don’t know what to pray.
I can confidently rely on the Spirit of God in prayer.
“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” – Romans 8:26, 27
I pray that they will feel His presence with them as they walk through this difficult time together as a family. I believe that God is able.
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” — 1 John 5:14, 15
