You hear the dreaded word: “Cancer.” It hits you like a punch in the stomach. You cannot process everything else the doctor says. How can this be? What do I do now? Is God going to do anything? When the diagnosis is cancer, a prayer for healing can make all the difference in your life. Here are some things you can learn about healing prayer for cancer.
Cancer makes you feel out of control. Prayer reminds you God is in control.
The uncertainties that cancer brings can be overwhelming. So many unknowns exist.
- Is it treatable?
- What are the treatments like?
- How will this end?
- What about my family, my children?
These and many more questions flood your mind. You feel like you have lost all sense of control in your life.
Prayer gives you the assurance that God is in control, even when your life spins out of control. God is still on His throne. He is still sovereign. And, you can still trust Him. Prayer shows you have faith when it is hard to trust God.
The psalmist says it this way:
Have pity on me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shuddering (Psalms 6:3, NABRE).
Your prayer reveals that you know the Lord is the only place to turn when you are not sure what is going to happen next.
Cancer robs life. God restores life.
Your prayers to God while battling cancer let you call out for His healing touch to bring everything that you need. Even when life itself is uncertain, you can find meaningful and abundant life in Christ.
Through the entire journey of cancer, every need you have can be met in the One who gives and restores life. Pray to Him. Pray for Him to bring the healing that you need. Call out to Him and watch what He does in you.
O LORD, my God, I cried out to you for help and you healed me (Psalms 30:3, NABRE).
God will respond to the prayers of those who call out to Him. His love and His mercy will be shown in great ways as He hears your prayers. His heart and His hand will be moved.
Cancer brings sickness. Jesus brings healing.
The Jesus who heals your soul from the sickness of sin and separation from God is the same Jesus who can heal your body that has been stricken with cancer. The healing that you seek is found in the Great Physician who can work the miracles that even modern medicine cannot achieve.
When He chooses to heal, Jesus can heal anything. Look at the example when Jesus was walking on earth:
At sunset, all who had people sick with various diseases brought them to him. He laid his hands on each of them and cured them (Luke 4:40, NABRE).
Notice this important point of the passage, the sick who were healed had to come to Jesus. He is the only One who can perform the healing you need.
Pray to Him.
Trust Him to do what is right. And, let Him touch your body and your soul with His healing hands.
