    Default Prayers for my Mom please

    I know God doesn't give us more than we can handle. I can't ask why or how many trials need to be met because God already has the answer and paid the price for all of us.

    Finished up steroids after Lupus was in left side of chest. I was profoundly relieved that I could sit up in bed once again as I couldn't for 7 days. The simple things we take for granted really humbles us. I found out I was being laid off due to budget cuts. I pray about it as it could be worse. Then I received word of my Mom's cancer being back.

    I have been praying for my Mom. My Mom's cancer is back for the 4th time in 6 months and they think it may be inoperable or if it is operable, she will lose all body functions as it is suspected that it has moved into the bowels. My Mom is 70 years old and wants to go and do as much as possible. Right now she can't even sit in a chair due to the pain from cancer. My heart is heavy and breaking. I cried the first two nights I heard of her cancer coming back and then began praying . . . eventually falling asleep.

    My wonder why must a person go through so much pain and suffering? I know that it allows us to enjoy the hills and valleys . . . but why so much pain? I also understand this is God's fight to fight. I have already lost my mother-in-law to cancer; please God not my Mom as well. I pray that the cancer is operable and can be removed without her losing body functions. I know you are listening God and I also know that you already know the end result. I am trying not to be selfish, but I am being selfish because I love my Mom with all my heart and she has sufferred through so much.


    Please join us in prayer for my Mom, Charlie, as I truly believe in faith and prayer.

    God Bless,

    Faith

    Amanda,

    I have missed you too Amanda. How are you doing?

    Thank you for the kind thoughts and prayers. I try to stay strong; it's hard. You are right my friend; one day at a time. I wish I knew why we have so many trials at once. I guess the saying when it rains, it pours. I am trying to dance in the rain and praise Him. Thank you Amanda for posting; it means a lot to me. As soon as we know more information; I will post an update. Please keep her in your prayers. I am praying for God's grace and intervention.

    Thank you & God Bless,

    Faith

    Faith;
    Your questions to God are very legitimate and I think that it is only faith that gives us answers, or at least peace. Why must those we love suffer in pain? Why? That is the question that lingers and seems to go unanswered.
    The peace that I find for that question is the peace knowing that there is no pain, there is no sorrow, and there are no tears when we are called. However, that is absolutely no comfort at all when we are praying for the health of someone that we love.
    I can hear the faith and the love in your post and I pray that you find both strength and peace in your heart and in your soul. I will be praying for you and for your Mom. Sending you warm and loving hugs.

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    Faith,

    I am raising you and your mom up in prayer. I think that you have very valid questions. I know it's hard to see someone we love battle so hard through their journey. Being selfish about the ones we love most is perfectly normal. I think it often seems like it is the most faithful who often have the most trials but maybe that is because HE only gives us what HE knows we can take. Your mom sounds very strong to have faced this enemy so many times and I am praying for you and her that she beats it again and for good.

    Angel;
    I just had to say that what you suggested was so beautiful in its simplicity and that it brought me to tears. I remember the simple joy that my Lauri would get out of just watching a movie together and how she would jokingly scold me for falling asleep on parts of the movie. Thank You for bringing that sweet, simple memory back to me. You are, indeed, and Angel.

    Always

    Carlotta, Amanda and Sandy,

    My Mom goes in this Friday to be seen by all 3 surgeons and hopefully willl get a surgery date. Her 2 choices were (1) hospice and (2) surgery with the doctor telling her she may not ever come out of the hospital and the cancer will come back as another tumor came back within 1 week between check-ups. It is a matter of when it comes back. The cancer is in her bowel muscle so she will have to have a colostomy bag and prays she will be able to come home within 3-4 weeks. She will be about 4 hours drive from where we live as this is where all the specialists are located in the Kaiser hospital in Fontana, California.

    The saying "When it rains, it pours . . . " well, I was rear-ended Sunday and the driver who rear-ended me pushed me up into three power poles. Angels were looking after me as I am truly blessed; painful neck/upper mid back. The ER doctor said the SUV saved my life. God is good. I will always Praise Him.

    Carlotta,

    I think you are right in that there is no comfort when you are praying for someone you love to heal. I continue to Praise Him and dance in the rain thru the trials.

    Sandy,

    Thank you for the prayers and keep them coming. Yes, I am very faithful and my faith is really being tested although don't know why.

    Angel,

    Thank you for checking back in nad the kind thoughts and prayers. Please keep praying.

    God Bless each and every one of you and thank you for caring and taking time out of your busy day.

    God Bless!!

    Faith
