If you have found this article because you are searching for support and help, please comment below and I will gladly pray for you!  It seems that we all know someone who has cancer or is in remission. Or, maybe even you have gone through the struggle and uncertainties of this disease.  While we may never understand why God allows some of us to get cancer, we all can know for certain that God is sovereign and that He loves us through all of the storms in this life.  Here are 6 prayers that you can pray if you are hurting from this disease somehow.

Why?

Dear Lord,

I know that You allow all trials to come upon us and I don’t like asking this question to You, but why have You allowed me to get cancer?  I love You and I know You have a plan for me.  I am so down right now and I need You so badly to comfort me.  Please, Lord, I don’t want to leave this world yet!  My babies are so young and my wife, I love her so much!  Please, Father, show me what You want me to learn from this.  I pray that You will heal me 100% from this disease.  May Your will be done in this.  I love You!  Amen

The Unknown

Heavenly Father,

My dad, is he going to make it through this?  I am scared, Lord!  I don’t know how to deal with life without him here and I am not sure if his faith in You is even real.  It saddens me to think he may not be in Heaven when he leaves this earth.  Please, Lord, give me Your peace in this crazy time and allow me some time to talk with him about Jesus.  I ask that You would heal him, Lord.  I love him so much.  May Your will be done.  I love You!  Amen

I will praise You in the storm.

I will praise You in the storm.

Getting Better?

O Lord,

The doctors say I am getting better!  I am so happy and excited!  This is all because of You!  You are the one who has given my doctors the intelligence and equipment to battle this disease.  Father, I pray that You would put my cancer into remission for good!  I don’t want any part of it!  Father, use this miracle to show this tiny part of earth that You are real!  I will praise Your name and tell everyone I can, here, about the saving blood of Your Son!  I love You, Father!  Amen

It Is Finished

Lord,

It feels like I’m dying inside.  My husband, he’s gone.  Lord, I will never understand this.  We are so young; he was only 32 and our children are heartbroken.  Lord, I am lost.  I have no idea how to handle life now.  I miss him so much.  I miss holding his hand.  I miss his laugh and his embrace.  I miss seeing him throw our 2 year old up in the air.  I miss the giggles of our kids as he tickled their tummies.  I can’t do this, Lord!  I want him back so badly.  Please give me strength for my kids.  They need me, but I need a shoulder to cry on too…I’m lost.  I wish this was only a bad dream.  I just want to wake up from this nightmare!  Father, help me!  I’m dying inside!  Amen

The News

Father,

I just got the news about grandma.  Lord, I don’t know what Your plan is for her, but I am certain that she will have a room in Your house in Heaven.  I don’t know what to pray.  I love her.  My selfish side wants her to live, but she is very old.  Her pain is great, Lord.  I pray that You would end her pain, Father, whether it be through healing her or meeting her in Heaven.  I pray that Your will be done in this!  I love You!  Amen

I Will Praise You In This Storm

Dear Lord,

I am caught in a whirlwind of emotions.  I never thought I would get cancer.  Satan wants to suck the joy right out of me and right now he has for the moment.  I am so discouraged.  Lord, I trust in You no matter what happens and I need You to walk with me through this!  Lord, I thank You for music and the peace it brings me.  “I will praise You in this storm, and I will lift my hands!  For You are who You are, no matter where I am!  And every tear I’ve cried, You hold in Your hands.  You never left my side and though my heart is torn I will praise You in this storm!” (I Will Praise You In This Storm, Casting Crowns) Lord, I give this all to You.  I trust in You and I love You!  Amen

Conclusion

Cancer affects so many people and we will never know why until we see Jesus face to face in Glory.  Please, leave a comment below if you need prayer.  I will pray for you in this very dark storm of life.  God is good all of the time and no matter the outcome, His glory can be proclaimed.  May God bless you as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling!
