Prayer request

I am in need of a prayer request from all of my faith readers. My Papa, Jim Hancock was diagnosed on March 4th with Lymphoma. Currently the doctor considers it to be low grade B-cell lymphoma (follicular center cell lymphoma, grade 1) and very treatable. Saturday he went for a PET scan and is scheduled for a bone marrow biopsy on March 31. So far he has had wonderful doctors who seem to be very encouraging. Please pray that our Father leads Jim and Sue Hancock though this.

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds ... Great is our Lord, and mighty in power ..." (Psalm 147:3)


Lord, we know You and we trust You. Come and make yourself known.

  8. "But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him and by His wounds we are healed. " Isaiah 53:5-6

    This came to mind...

    Our Prayers,
    Jenny

  10. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

    This verse always helps me when I am ging through difficult times and it has helped a sick friend recently - I hope it helps your Papa too.

    Thank you for being you.
