“What Cancer Cannot Do”

Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

Lord, I come before you today knowing that all power is in Your hand. I know that you are the Lord and that you care for your people. Right now, my beautiful wife and her sisters are struggling with a difficult trial. I can see they are trying hard to not let their strength falter, and Lord, I know that you have all of the strength that they need.

I pray that you will reach down and touch them right now wherever they are at this moment. Let your presence fill the room where they are and let them feel an extra portion of your strength that can help them to get through this day.

They need you now, Lord, and I thank you in advance for meeting them where they are and shoring up their strength during this difficult time.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  1. AMEN! Our family has been deeply affected by cancer, I LOVE the attitude of looking at what it couldn’t do. Cancer actually brought our family closer, and caused us to work together in ways that we never had before. It taught us to laugh through pain, and find joy in the journey. I am passing this on to others going through a similar valley. Thank you!

    I love the attitude adjustment that this post facilitates in my own mind and heart. I know several who are still being affected by this horrible thief…maybe it will bring some consolation to your hearts today, and may the God of all peace come to you and comfort your hearts, so that through it, you will enjoy a deep, abiding friendship in Him.
