Friend with cancer
« on: April 11, 2011, 08:53:37 PM »
Dear brothers, sisters and friends,

 I would like to humbly ask your prayers for my friend Terry who has only yesterday been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  As most of you probably know, there really is no cure for this type of cancer and the best anyone can do is just make him as comfortable as possible.  He is a devout member of the Assemblies of God, but as I told my fiance, he's one of my personal heroes.  I've not met a single person, Eastern Orthodox or not, who is as devout and Godly as this man.  Please remember him as he makes his final preparations.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on Thy servant, Terry.

Lord, have mercy!
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria
