"Prayer for Tracey "
We can increase in purity by our actions
taken in love towards others. Tracey is the mother of two daughters who
she is caring for and raising. She has been diagnosed with extensive
bone cancer and needs to have you and I send up our prayers for her
healing, so that she will be able to care for those two daughters
instead of leaving them to the care of her parents who are not in good
health and in their 70's.
Join me by reading the words of this simple prayer.
PRAYER FOR TRACEY
heavenly Father,creator of all worlds and of all people who walk on
this planet Earth, please look down on your humble servant, Tracey, as
she faces the threat of cancer with pain but above all else a sadness
because of her leaving behind the two special daughters you sent to her
for her care and upbringing in the knowledge and love for You, Jesus
and the Holy Spirit.
Please spare her and her daughters
from this impending tragedy and show again that You are indeed a great
God of mercy and grace. I have seen You respond to a mother's cries to
be left alive to care for another creature and know that it one of the
most noble gestures that mankind can show--to care about one's live
simply as Your avenue to provide sustenance and love to others.
Father, we want to do Your will and nothing else really matters. If it
be possible for this terrible sentence of cancer and death to be
removed from Tracey's life now we pray that You make it so now. Tracey
will tell her testimony of Your grace and mercy to many, and they will
be turned towards You at that time. Hopefully, many will be brought
into Your Kingdom by Your act of mercy.
We thank You now
from the bottom of our heart and soul for hearing and responding to our
cry for help as You think best. Our plea is a simple one and flows from
the love that You gave to us through the Holy Spirit that Jesus sent to
us after His great sacrifice for our liberation from the power of sin.
Please honor the simple, humble and contrite spirit that lives in your
servant Tracey who cares for her daughters first and foremost. We share
her concerns and send this prayer to You in the hope that You will also
see her motives above and beyond any reproach.
Please heal Tracey now and let her live a long life, Please Father, please.
thank You for hearing us and considering our prayer in light of Your
infinite knowledge and love. We of course must end by asking that Your
will be done, not ours and that you provide us with understanding if we
are asking amiss, though we cannot see how our request is different
from the spirit of concern You expressed by giving Your only begotten
Son for our salvation.
