View Full Version : Please remember my friend

This is all too common of a theme on this part of the forum. It tears me up every time I hear something like this. I hate cancer.

For those of you who are the praying type, please remember my friend Alan and especially his wife. They are going through a heartbreaking time, as she has cancer. It sounds like it's beyond treatment. They are both really great people. She's a very sincere, kind-hearted person. Sometimes this old world doesn't make sense.

I'll pray for you, your friend, and most especially his wife.
It seems at times that God gives us folks in our lives that we want to be more like, and then takes them away. I think sometimes that makes us want to take up the slack, to try to fill in for them, knowing that we could never replace them, but knowing that we're all a little bit better because we had someone to show us the way.

My prayers go out to you.

Prayers for them and you too. Another Cancer hater but my wife's a survivor (over 5 years now) faith can do a lot

There is so much sadness and heartache in this world - if there's any reason for it at all it might be just to remind each of us to cherish every day we can spend with the ones we love.
Prayers for your friend, his wife, and you. May the Almighty comfort you all.

Thank you all.

I'm a survivor too and know a little about going through something like that. Fortunately mine was not far advanced and I'm OK, but it changed my life and I feel more now for others going through heartbreaking times, especially when its someone I know and care about.

We are not close but they are good people. I worked for him a few years ago and have stayed in touch. He gave me a job when I was desperate for work and didn't know what I was going to do to support my family; I will always appreciate that. His wife is just a genuine nice and caring person, and I think she is his whole life. What do you say to someone when they are going through the "WHY GOD?!?" stage of something like this?

Prayers sent I know how much it sucks to see someone deal with cancer regardless of status (friend or family).

I will pray for Allen and his wife, just remember that our God is still in the healing business and there is nothing he can't do. I just pray for healing and comfort for Allen's wife, and I pray for comfort and understanding for Allen and the entire family. I pray that God would wrap his loving arms around this family and that his will would be done in their lives. Be a good friend to them and let them know about Salvation and introduce Allen and his wife to Jesus Christ and the Road to Salvation. I will pray that if they have not accepted Christ as their personal Savior, the Holy Spirit would convict both of them and lead them to accept Christ into their lives.

Sincere Prayers are very powerful. Prayers of hope, strength , and healing added to prayers of Love, Forgiveness and Mercy.
