Dear Lord,

What am I to do?

I feel so powerless.

My emotions sometimes scream at me and want to take me captive.

Sometimes they do take me captive.

I want to be strong.

I want to handle things with amazing maturity.

I want to be at peace.

Yet, sometimes I just want to pretend this is all a bad dream and soon I will wake up.

I am longing for your help this day.

Please let me feel your support.

Please let me see your miracles!

Please let me feel your love when I am overwhelmed and crying.

Please forgive me when I get angry.

I need to draw closer to you even when I feel like drawing away.

Hear my heart, Lord, and help me.

Recently, I was asked to write a prayer

for a friend

who just had a cancer diagnosis.


We share that prayer with you.

Dear God,

I feel low.

I have some feelings of depression after hearing about the cancer.

I feel some fear that I might die.

And I have some fear about what is going to happen during treatment.

I also have some fear about ___________________.

Lord, I know that you will walk with me through this.

I’m glad that the Bible tells us that you intend for us to pray to you for healing. God, I am asking you to disintegrate and destroy the cancer and heal my body.

Thank you, God, that you do not limit our requests. You tell us to come boldly to your throne. So I also ask you to bring me physical strength and heal my  _______  and _______________________.

In Jesus’ name I pray,
