Prayer please

got back from chemo around 3. this is a rough day. they empty 4 liters (think 2 2 liter pop bottles) into my belly. i'm uncomfortable, to say the least. pray for me. when i don't feel good i tend to downward spiral. forget that this too shall pass. the next few days will be rough with side affects too. and then i'll climb out. i just could use a little extra prayer back up. kids are still needy. my head is still a bit congested. and i worry. although i know the drugs are kicking cancer's butt. pray that God will be in control and near. I know he is, i just need to be on the look out for Him.

Thanks that I can ask and you will pray. pray for the rest of my family too. they need it just as much.

Lord, be with E. Relieve her discomfort we pray. Thank you so much for the kick-butt drugs she is getting! Lord I pray side effects will be as minimal as possible, and that your peace and positivity will reign! I pray that you'll help O and the boys to be content, and that Steve will be strengthened as E is weak. Thank you Jesus.

E, you are loved by an awesome God who has not deserted you and will remain with you, as well as all of us prayin. I keep imagining the 2 2liter bottles as Orange Crush soda and God is using it to CRUSH the cancer. Praying and love ya, Cindy

I can't imagine how uncomfortable that would be. Hope the fun you had last week feeds you the next few days. Whatever you do, please don't go take a nap in another group's conversation - lol!

Praying for your comfort and peace. Also praying for your family!

We all prayed for you tonight as a family...continuing to pray for the discomfort and pain to ease from so much fluid in your body. Asking Jesus to make those drugs kick this cancer OUT! Thought this was an encouraging verse in Zephaniah 3:17....."HE is in your midst....a mighty one who will save....he will quiet you by his love...." It encouraged me....hope it brings you some peace.

Love you.....

oh friend... this is hard. I can't imagine how uncomfortable/painful this must be. Ugh. Praying for you to run and not be weary!

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Father, fill E, Steve and the kids with Your strength, peace and comfort. Help them to feel Your love and support through the amazing Body of Christ you have surrounded them with. Calm all of their fears and anxieties. Teach them how to give thanks in everything, even the things we view as yucky. Show them how to walk through these hard times with your strength. Give E opportunities to share You with those around her--use that to give her hope and a purpose. Strengthen their marriage. Give Steve wisdom to know how to help E and the kids. Provide Steve with the support he needs to lead his family in this difficult time. Thank you for this family.
