prayers for friend
« on: January 31, 2008, 04:25:43 PM »
Please pray for my friend Jennifer and her friend Ryan. Jennifer has been going through some difficult times lately and has just found out that her friend Ryan has stage 4 lung cancer that has spread through the lymph nodes. The only symptom was one lump he happened to notice under his arm. Ryan is 21.

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

There seems to be a trend lately of resurrecting older threads, unfortunately I'm resurrecting this one to ask you to pray for Jennifer and Ryan once again. Ryan had been doing well without about 1 and 1/3  lungs. He and Jennifer started a fairly serious relationship but the cancer came back and yesterday he died.
