Please, More Prayer Requests

Please, to all you out there praying, add 2 more to your list:
Monica Rodrigues (whose website is linked at the right) has found out the tumors in her lungs have all grown by 2-3 mm, despite the fact that she's been on chemotherapy this whole time. Please pray for her emotional state and also that she makes the right decisions about what treatment comes next.

And a friend of a friend, Sharon Skinner, has been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic cancer. It's in her brain, lungs, and spine. She goes in today for surgery to put a shunt into her brain which will remove fluids that are building up. She is 35 years old and has 5 kids.

Pray especially that they CLING to God n this most frightening time, throwing themselves on his mercy.

Praying, and asking others to pray.

May God grant them healing. May he grant wisdom and skill to their doctors. May he grant them a deep peace in their hearts, and a deep trust of his love for them. Amen.

What Br. Robert said! That's almost the exact prayer I said the minute I read your post. May God have mercy on them, give them His peace, and through His will for them show his glory.
