A Prayer- Oh Come Emmanuel! God is with Me Through my Cancer

 To hear prayer click below:


Heavenly Father,

This cancer has me clinging this Christmas to the gift of your Son, Emmanuel.  His name-Emmanuel says it all.  It means God is with us.  As a precious infant, Jesus came to be with each of us through the valleys and the mountaintops.  This Christmas I am facing the valleys of cancer and the mountaintops of Christmas delights.  Through it all- God is with me.

When the fatigue is too much- God is with me.

When the meds don’t work- God is with me.

When my loved ones shower me with hugs- God is with me.

When the smell of food sours my stomach- God is with me.

When my dear friends make me laugh- God is with me.

When my family gathers together- God is with me.

When the Christmas party exhausts me- God is with me.

When the counts are low and the scan is bad- God is with me.

When the tumor shrinks and the news is good- God is with me.

This cancer journey has pushed me to see you carrying me through each and every step.  For I know with certainty that you have wrapped me in the strength of your unmovable hold – now and forever more!

AMEN
