I come to you friends with yet another prayer request. It sometimes feels daunting the amount of prayer needed around me. However, I still pray. This one I beg for all of you to pray over and share.
A young girl from my parish, Jade, age 6, passed away at the beginning of the week from brain cancer. Her older cousin, age 15, also died from the disease just one year ago. Now, just days before Jade's funeral, another cousin, Tyler, age 7, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and will be undergoing surgery tomorrow.
Please pray for Tyler to be healed and for his surgeon's hands to be guided by the Hand of God. Moreover, please pray for this dear family. There are truly no words to even explain what they are facing. To lose one young child in a family is a tragedy. To lose three in one year to the same disease is incomprehensible. I am trusting in God's Sovereign Plan, yet I have some serious questions about this. Well, actually just one, "Why?"
I know sometimes the answer is no, but these people have been praying and praying and it seems that their world keeps falling apart at the seams. Dear LORD please wrap them in your unimaginable comfort and peace and help them through each heart beat because their hearts have been shattered beyond recognition. Thank you.
