Please keep my stepmother, Judy, in your prayers, as she has recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Thank you!

Lord have mercy!
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Lord, have mercy on Thy servant Judy.
Grant her quick and complete healing.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Thank you all for your prayers. As cervical cancer has a 70% death rate associated with it, I am truly worried about her.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Please continue to pray for my Stepmother, as she must have a hysterectomy. (I don't know the exact date. I will provide it when I do.)

What concerns me the greatest is that she is not allowing her body to get the rest it needs to heal. She is a nurse, and as we know, doctors and nurses can make the worst patients. 

She has been intentionally working non-stop, with few days off, and running on very little sleep. While this would be unhealthy for a healthy person, for a cancer patient undergoing chemo, I really worry about the toll this will take on her body.

My father and I have tried talking to her, but she won't listen to reason.

Please keep her in your prayers.

Thank you.

She's probably trying to stay busy in order to keep her mind off her illness.

Dear Lord, have mercy on Your servant Judy.  May she get through her illness and return healthy and happy to her loving family!
