A Prayer – Cancer has Invaded my Christmas Celebration

CLICK HERE to listen to prayer.

Dear God,

I do not want this cancer to get into the way of my life and yet now the holidays are here-  it’s too much. Cancer has invaded my Christmas celebration.

Each year there are specific gatherings, meals, events with family, friends and even work where people expect me to attend, contribute or even plan but not this year. It’s impossible with this cancer for me to do all I usually do.  Part of me wants to do it all and another part of me is angry that everyone cannot see that I can’t possibly be that involved this year.

Some people want me to do less and some want me to do more and the truth is I have no idea what I will be capable of doing from day to day or even hour to hour.  I’m so tired.

Help me Jesus. Help me to see my limitations and accept them.  Teach me how to share my limitations with others and most frightening, teach me how to ask for help.

I also ask you to teach the people around me to let me do what I can do to be part of the celebration when I can. Please create an air of flexibility and spontaneity around me through this season.  Breathe a spirit of unity among all of those I love through each and every interaction.  Let this Christmas bring each of us closer experiencing the true spirit of Christmas through the priceless gift of your Son.

I place all of this in your loving hands,
