Dear Heavenly Father,
I love you. I praise you and exalt you. You know my thoughts before I know my thoughts. You know how precious Hope is to us. Dear Lord, you know Hope and the wonderful influence she and her husband have been to us as a couple and to our church family. I have total faith in knowing she will be with you someday, possibly soon. My prayer is selfish and I catch myself to and remind myself that You, Heavenly Father are in control. At this time I beg you if it is in your plan to shrink her cancer and heal her. This is not my will but your will, Father. Please have mercy on Hope. Keep her close and calm her. Take her fears away. I know she does not fear but looks forward to eternity with you. Please take away her fears of the last part of her journey here on Earth. Thank you for sending Jesus, your son, to sacrifice his life so that we might be forgiven through his blood shed for us. Forgive me of my sins. I want to be like Jesus. Keep close to Hope. I pray these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
