6 January 2009 - Special Prayer Request
Joy has non-operable abdominal cancer. She is home from the hospital, but near the end of her time here on earth. Joy will be entering hospice care. Please pray for her as she prepares to depart this world for home that she might be confident in the love of God and her Lord Jesus Christ and thus make the transition in peace. She asks God’s help to deal with the pain and discomfort while keeping a positive attitude during what is a very trying time. Pray also her family might accept God’s will and enjoy whatever time she has with them here on earth. In particular please pray for peace of mind for Joy and her husband Dewaine that they might keep their trust in God and increase their faith. Pray that her family who will remain here on earth might be able to put their cares and worries aside for the moment and focus on God’s love for their mother; as well as her love for them. May they concentrate on the unity and not on the temporary separation.
