Calling All Prayer Warriors

Some of you know that my father in law has been battling cancer for some time. Things have been up and down lately, but every up is lower than the last time. We know that cancer will be what takes him from this earth and on to be with His Lord when he leaves us.

Today we got a report that our family will need to pray about. The cancer has metastasized (again). The oncologist has given the family the freedom to make the decision: either chemotherapy - again, or just keep him comfortable and let God have Him when He is ready.

The chemo might kill him because he is so weak. It does not look like the best answer. But, do we simply choose to not try and fight more?

The family requests your prayers as we make this decision by next Friday.

Psalm 17:6
I call on you, O God, for you will answer me;
give ear to me and hear my prayer.
