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 thank you all for your prayers and thoughts for my uncle, all my family can do now is place our prayers and our hopes in the Lord.

HOPE IS RISING by DOWNHERE
I’ve lost all my earthly optimism
That it’s all going to be alright
That the good will win this fight
Somewhere between youth
and disappointments
the dream became despair,
the love became a lie

Just now, I’ve reached
the end of my line
Just now, I’m too tired
to keep on trying

Hope is rising,
it’s a sunrise for the end
Hope is rising,
and it’s breathing for me again
Hope is rising again

Soon beneath the roses I will lie
All the memories of my days,
gathered to the sky
Soon every work
will find its worth
And all my strength returned,
to the water and the earth

Just when I reach
the end of my life
Just when my eyes
dim out the last light

From the sorrow, from the fear
From the loss and from the tears
From the darkness, from the pain
From the fall and from the grave

COME HEALING by JENNY SIMMONS
O gather up the brokenness
And bring it to me now
The fragrance of those promises
You never dared to vow

The splinters that you carry
The cross you left behind
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb

Behold the gates of mercy
In arbitrary space
And none of us deserving
Of the cruelty or the grace

O solitude of longing
Where love has been confined
Oh, come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

O see the darkness yielding
That tore the light apart
Come healing of the reason
Come healing of the heart

O troubled dust concealing
An undivided love
The Heart beneath is teaching
To the broken Heart above

O and let the heavens falter
And let the earth proclaim:
Come healing of the Altar
Come healing of the Name

O longing of the branches
To lift the little bud
O longing of the arteries
To purify the blood

And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb

O and let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Oh, come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb
Oh, come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb
