Compassionate Father, my diagnosis is terminal. I am in darkness. I feel numb. I feel sad. I don’t what…or if…I feel. I am confused, and at the same time, my mind is blank. I know that if You do not rescue me that I will soon cease to walk this earth. My steadfast hope lies in going to You. It lies in stepping into eternity with You. You say I may have peace in You. I pray, Lord, please give me that peace. Please calm my spirit within me so I may face these coming days with courage and grace. Let me be present in my final days so that I can let my friends and family know how important they have been to me. Help me comfort them and let them know that they should not be sad, because I will be looking down on them. And I will be with You. Amen.
