Merciful Father, you bless those with cancer by revealing a portion of Your Divine plan to them. Graciously do you call to them patiently, gently. Out of unfathomable love do You allow them to prepare their souls for your call. How much more blessed than a sudden death without warning, Lord! How then would we prepare for our final day? How then would we tell our loves ones how we feel about them? How then would we see them for perhaps the last time, with enough memories to joyfully enter into eternity?
Lord, Your mysterious ways reveal Your unbelievable depth of love for us. And out of the same love we seek miraculous healing in the mind, the body and the spirit of this suffering soul. You have graciously granted them, through their protracted suffering, a cleansing, a purgation while yet on this earth, so that, at Your call, their spirit will be found acceptable in Your Kingdom. But Lord, their suffering also bears true witness to Your Goodness. And so we pray that their purpose in this life remains unfulfilled, and that Your mercy will grant them the healing which will complete their life, as You will it.
Heavenly and Eternal Father, join our prayers for this soul with those of the Angels and Saints to form an unending petition for mercy. We ask this through Christ, our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God for ever and ever. Amen! Alleluia!
