I come to you for prayer

My Daddy ( really my step dad, but he has been my daddy since I was 2) was diagonosed officially yesterday with Bladder Cancer. They removed a large part of his blockage (mass) and have sent it off to be biopsied to see how advanced it is, and to also see if it is a spreadable kind. They have yet to determine the best plan of "attack" until results return. Being a smoker and a drinker, he has done plenty of damage by choice to his body. He is also not a believer, so this is hard for me but yet I can see how God can use this to turn things around in his life.

Anyway, for now, I ask for prayer. For him (Richard), for my mom (Janice), and for me and my brother (Carl). We will deal with whatever comes, because my peace and hope come from the Lord, even during times such as these.

    I am so sorry sweetie. My grandfather has struggled with various cancers due to his lifestyle choices as well. He also is not a believer. I struggle with that too. So while I will NOT say I know how you feel (because I really don't) I want you to know you are not alone and I am having a similar experience. Hugs to you.
    Prayers for Richard and the rest of the family.
    P.S. This post has inspired me to pray for my grandpa in a new way.
