Please Continue To Pray For My Uncle’s Fight With Cancer

A few nights ago I asked for prayer for my Uncle Andy, who has been diagnosed with lung cancer and I thank all those who have prayed for him.  I understand that next Monday he faces surgery to removed part of his lung, which the Doctor’s hope will be sufficient to eradicate the cancer, I’m sure my family would appreciate your continued prayer.

My Dad has told me that he was actually scheduled to face heart surgery on a defective heart valve, as he like my Dad and his other brother and sister have a history of heart related problems, indeed I was myself diagnosed at 26 with a heart strain and chronic high blood pressure which they found no obvious reason for, it seems as though heart problems run right through our family.

As part of the pre-operation tests they performed a scan on my Uncle and only then found the cancer in his lungs, so now instead of the heart operation he faces an operation to remove part of his lung just three days before Christmas.

I pray for a successful operation which will fully eradicate the cancer and for his speedy recovery.  I thank you all that have prayed and for your continued prayer.

THE HOPE THAT LIES IN YOU by THE GLORIOUS UNSEEN
We can hear the sound of all creation sing
A song to heal the earth, a song to spark a dream
Where are you optimists? We need your strength in this
There’s a stirring in your soul that cannot be controlled
This is the hope that lies in You

We can hear the sound of all the earth rejoice
With angels all around lifting up their voice
Where are you hopeful ones? Have we come undone?
There’s a stirring in your soul that cannot be controlled
This is the hope that lies in You
This is the hope that lies in You

And through all the questioning You’ve been the hope in me
Despite uncertainty You’ve been the only constant thing
And when I’m struggling You keep on loving me the same
This is the hope that lies in You

Hallelujah, hallelujah
(This is the hope that lies in You)
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
(Come down, we need Your hope to come down)
(We need Your grace to pour out)
(We need Your love to shine down)

Hallelujah, hallelujah
(Come down, we need Your hope to come down)
(We need Your grace to pour out)

Hallelujah, hallelujah
(Come down, we need Your hope to come down)
(We need Your grace to pour out)
(We need the face of God now)
Hallelujah, hallelujah

    I’m praying that the surgeons can remove all of the cancerous cells and that he had a speedy recovery! Lord, I pray that you would touch this man, Uncle Andy, with your loving, healing hand and restore health and wholeness to him. In Jesus’ name, amen!
