A reader writes:Can you please ask your readers to pray for a friend’s mother who is going in for surgery this morning (she may even be in as I write this) in an attempt to remove cancer from her lungs. They are all faithful, so far as I know. This is her third bout with cancer, a different type each time–she’s beaten it twice before. Please offer prayers for her and for her children and all who love her.Father, hear our prayer for this woman’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit.  Grant her caregivers grace, wisdom, knowledge, compassion, counsel, understanding, insight, attentitiveness, skill, and the proper technology to assist in her complete healing.  Give her and all who love her grace, peace, strength, consolation, faith, hope, and love.  Mother Mary, St. Luke, and St. Peregrine, pray for her.  We ask this through your Son Jesus Christ, Father.Also, please pray for my my friend Kim, who is battle a very aggressive form of cancer. And please pray as well for my friend Valerie who is struggling with depression.  Thank, troops!
