Stan Gilberts
Grandpa battling lung cancer

My Grandfather has cancer and will only have a couple months left to live.

My Grandfather who is 82 years old is battling lung cancer and only has a few more months left to live. I have been trying to prepare for this news for some time now, but it is still hard to grasp. I realize that he is very old and has lived a long and happy life, so I am asking for the prayers to help him handle the pain and suffering that he is going through in a much easier way, with the least amount of pain as possible. I couldnt imagine going through the frustration of that. I am also asking for prayers for my grandmother. They have been married for 60 years and I know that she must be mortified of losing her loving husband. Please let her have the strength and courage for my grandfather, and to make it on her own with out him. They are the most amazing people and do everything for everyone else. I feel that it is time for them to get something in return, so I am asking others if they could please say a prayer for these two wonderful people.

O Holy Hashem, King of the Universe and Loving Father to Us All,

Please bless Stan; please, if at all possible, help him to survive longer, but as we accept Your Sovereignty and that all must eventually die, we ask that whatever You decide, that he be blessed with comfort, spiritual and physical, and that all works out for the best for him, and that he may be guided on his journey of death and reach Your Eternal Love and Glory in the world beyond, to be welcomed by Your Open Arms. Please also bless his wife, and indeed all his loved ones, through this; give them strength and help them to help Stan and each other, and if he does return to You let them be comforted. Give all these people Your Love and faith, and bless all for the best everywhere; and thank You, Lord, for all the blessings of Stan's life, and all Your other countless gifts.

In Your Holy Name,

Eternal God, Our Father,

This is the pain of Gethsemane, this is the grief almost too great to bear.
Wrap these dear souls in Your Spirit and keep them in Your Holy care.
Give to them the comfort, You promised as You lived on earth,
This life is but the gateway to that mighty second birth.
Please ease the pain and suffering, soothe the furrowed brow,
Uphold the loved-ones ministering, even though they know not how.
You are our blessed Savior. You are our Holy Lord,
and now, as never before, Lord, we must stand upon Your Word.
Your kingdom is so close now, we near can hear the angels sing,
As we look into that future where there will be no more sorrow and pain.
Thank You for Your mercy, thank You for hearing our prayers,
Thank You for the dear ones who gather 'round us here.
We truly want to trust You, but the path is hard, indeed.
Give us the strength to believe, Lord, that you'll meet our every need.

In Jesus name, we ask it.

Faith, hope and joy in Jesus!
The Hag

"Father God" in the name of "Jesus", we come before you this day praying for grandpa gilberts. Setting up a standard that says he will fear no evil and that you are with him, knowing and believing that this is true. "Father" in the process of your will being done in his life, we ask for strength to endure, courage to stand even though we don't understand, wisdom to know that all power belongs to you, faith to trust what we don't know or understand and grace and mercy to endure it. Oh heavenly "Father" death seems so intolerable and insufferable to us and we cannot fully comprehend it until that day when you stand in the clouds and bring us to you. Help us "Father", give grandma gilberts the tenacity to endure even when she feels like giving up and give the family the peace that surpasses understanding. Send forth your anointing and let it rest with this family. In the mighty name of "Jesus" we pray. Amen
