Prayer Request - I might have ovarian cancer


I’m not sure if it right to ask that I not have ovarian cancer. That very real possibility hit me hard yesterday. I know that it is God’s will that must be done, but I so long for at least a treatable disease. Pray for me to have the strength to accept God’s will, please.


Hello jebplume,

I have just prayed for you that if it is God’s will to cure the disease, then may He help you. If it is His other will that this is your cross, I prayed that you would be able to recognize that this is your cross and you will have the strength and the love for Him to carry it and to be happy that at the end you will be rewarded.

I am briefly sharing with you my illness which I have had for more than 20 years now that everyday I can only breathe through one nostril.

Please keep in mind, jebplume, that having your own cross does not mean God is punishing you. You can pray and ask Him what He wants you to do with it.


Hi friend,

you can pray to Saint Peregrine, the patron saint against cancer.
I will most definitely keep you in my thoughts and prayers! God
bless you!
