Heavenly Father, the doctor’s report is out, and the results are very devastating. Please grant me the courage to accept that my days on earth are numbered. As I face each day and draw near to the day that I will leave this world, help me to remember that life is but a mist. Remind me of your love that I may hold onto your word. Where there is fear, replace it with courage and the desire to come and be home with you, Lord. Help me to see dying as another way of healing from the pain and sorrows of this world. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
