Pray for me

Those of you following our blog will have seen the prayer requests for Dave, Kay and Robert, who are all currently undergoing cancer  treatments. 

For those of you who are still praying for them, Thank you. 

A small update: Kay thought her treatment was finished. She did the series of chemotherapy which was hoped to slow the growth, but was expected to spread the cells... The treatment was completed and the cancer growth was slowed although is still very alive and active, but to the surprise of her specialist it is still contained and has not spread. This is wonderful news for her and she has just started an additional series of treatments. 
"Praise be to God".

We have had another request for prayer. 
Robyn is facing urgent surgery for cancer on her ear.  She has had a very difficult 3 months which saw her husband placed in aged care and bills piling up, Her health has suffered and her doctor is very concerned for her. She is feeling scared and alone. 
Please keep Robyn in your prayers. 

O LORD and heavenly Father;
Great Physician, giver of health and healing,
who relieves those suffering in soul and body.

Look with your gracious favour upon these people;
Grant to them in their time of need the sense of your presence, 
that they may have perfect trust in you.

Give kindness of heart, wisdom and discretion
to those who minister to them in their sickness,
and bless all the means used for their recovery.

Stretch forth your hand to heal them, easing their pain and fear,
that by your mercy they may be restored to health and strength,
of body and mind according to your gracious will.

So that they may live to praise you for your goodness and grace
and that they can show forth their thankfulness in love to you,
and service to their fellow men: to the glory of your holy Name.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
