Lord of Mercy and Love, I know that my earthly future looks meek. I understand that my cancer might be too much for my body to handle; I feel that in every minute of pain I endure. I am ready to be with You and to have this hurt finally cease. But God, I am worried about my family. When I go, please comfort them and give them peace in the knowledge that I am with You. Let it not be a time of sadness but a celebration that I am finally home. Amen.
