A Friend & My Mother…
You may or may not know, a dear friend died of Cancer and my mom died of heart attack and this is partly what set me on a journey to be able to have a website that is a blessing to the body of Jesus Christ but more so for the families with patients. We hope we will be a blessing to you.
A New Approach
The first site we started focused solely on prayer, no additives. However, on this site, prayer for cancer patients, we are adding more stuff so that our prayers will go hand in hand with some helpful hints or links or pieces of advice. James the Apostle said in James 2:15-17 “If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” Our prayer is that we may, albeit a small way, put action to our faith. Yes, our main and overriding goal is prayer, this we shall not compromise and even as we write articles and pieces of advice, we shall incorporate declarations and prayer points to the Glory of God. We still believe, Andrew Murray once said, talking about prayers:-

Bible Reading and Prayer in the Sickroom
The presence of the minister in the sickroom should make the patient conscious of the presence of the Great Physician.
This is most effectually achieved when the minister leaves with the suffering one brief spiritual prescriptions from the Bible, and personally seeks to connect him with the healing power of God in prayer.
The therapeutic power of the Scriptures and of prayer are the minister's two greatest resources of help and comfort to the hospital patient.
We mortals may sympathize with the infirmities of our fellow men, but the source of all true comfort comes from the inspiration of God. The Scriptures are rich in examples of those who have walked «through the valley of the shadow of death,» and who have been sustained by the mighty arm of the everlasting Father.
In every case the Scripture selection should be brief and applicable to the situation. This is no time for a doctrinal Bible study or a wholesale use of the Bible. Inexhaustible spiritual resources with an amazing relevance to all human needs are found in the Bible.
Brief sentences of inspiration, the significant content of treasured verses, often provide just the spiritual prescription needed.A striking sentence promise from God's Holy Word can be remembered even by a sick mind and may balance the scales in favor of hope and health.
It must be remembered that minds dulled with pain and wearied by struggles with disease and anxiety are incapable of remembering long and difficult scriptural passages. Sometimes one can write a little passage and leave it with the patient as a spiritual prescription to help in his recovery.
Each passage should be read well in a conversational voice. Avoid reading too rapidly, since most sick people's minds do not function as efficiently as in normal times. Obviously, the time to read an appropriate portion of the Bible comes after the minister has established a satisfactory relationship with the patient.
Sometimes it is not wise to read the Bible to the sick one—and the minister must have good common sense and understanding of the situation. In such cases a briefly quoted sentence from God's Word may suffice.
The majority of patients will welcome a selection from the Word of God, if the clergyman is tactful and considerate and cultured in his approach.
There are numerous appropriate passages from the Bible that will remind the sufferer of the love and attention of God. What the patient needs most is courage and faith. The following are but a sample selection of Scriptures from which successful ministers and counselors have drawn their spiritual prescriptions for the encouragement of the sick:
Ps. 4:1, 3-8—Commune with your heart and be still
Ps. 23:1-6— «The Lord is my shepherd»
Ps. 90:1,. 2, 4—The greatness of a personal God
Ps. 91:1-4—The Lord is our refuge
Ps. 121:1-8—Our help comes from the Lord
Isa. 41:10—»I will strengthen thee»
Isa. 43:1-5—»Fear not; for I am with thee»
Matt. 6:25-33—Be not anxious for the future
Matt. 7:7, 8—Ask, and ye shall receive
Matt. 11:28-30—There is rest for the weary
Matt. 17:19, 20—The need of faith
John 14:1-3—»Let not your heart be troubled»
John 14:27; 16:33—Peace and quietness
Rom. 8:18, 28—The glory that is to come
Rom. 8:35, 37-39—Nothing can separate us from the love of God
The Healing Power of the Word of God
God has put His healing power into His Word. His words, as the wise man has observed, «are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh» (Prov. 4:22).
In the acceptance of God's promises the faith of man partakes of the divine nature, with its healing and strengthening power (2 Peter 1:4).
The author of The Ministry of Healing beautifully expresses this thought as follows:The same power that Christ exercised when He walked visibly among men is in His word.
It was by His word that Jesus healed disease and cast out demons; by His word He stilled the sea and raised the dead, and the people bore witness that His word was with power.
He spoke the word of God, as He had spoken to all the prophets and teachers of the Old Testament. The whole Bible is a manifestation of Christ. . . .
So with all the promises of God's word. In them He is speaking to us individually, speaking as directly as if we could listen to His voice. It is in these promises that Christ communicates to us His grace and power.
They are the leaves from that tree which is «for the healing of the nations.» Rev. 22:2. Received, assimilated, they are to be the strength of the character, the inspiration and sustenance of the life. Nothing else can have such healing power.
Nothing besides can impart the courage and faith which give vital energy to the whole being.—Page 122.
Praying With the Patient
Prayer is the minister's greatest contribution to healing in the sickroom. It is not a magical rite, but it is a medium that brings to the patient's stress and anxiety the quieting influence of the eternal God.
It makes available the spiritual resources that bring both peace of mind and bodily strength.
Even illnesses for which medical science has not as yet provided a cure have been greatly alleviated by prayer, and in some instances completely cured, as God has graciously responded to the faith of those concerned.The objective results of the prayer of faith are many. Prayer relieves the inner fears of persons who are preparing for an operation, and anesthesia is more readily induced.
Prayer stimulates more rapid recovery, and during the time of convalescence not only relieves the aftereffects of the operation or illness, but also implants the peace and trust that are so conducive to a complete return to health.
In answer to prayer God has greatly blessed the work of Christian physicians and pastors in their efforts to minister new health and new faith to their patients, even to the extent of actually reversing the processes of death, and extending prolonged life to those whose condition medical science had conceded to be hopeless.
When men are bereft of strength and perplexed in spirit, they feel their need of God. Many people feel quite secure in times of health and take their faith for granted.
But when a crisis comes and they are fiat on their back in a hospital bed, they are often very anxious to have the assurance of God's personal care for them.
Even those who are so confused that they wonder whether prayer really works, present a golden opportunity for the understanding pastor to refocus their attention on God.
The Scripture says that «men ought always to pray, and not to faint» (Luke 18:1); and if ever there is a time when they feel their need of prayer, it is when strength fails and life itself seems slipping from their grasp.
Often those who are in health forget the wonderful mercies continued to them day by day, year after year, and they render no tribute of praise to God for His benefits. But when sickness comes, God is remembered. When human strength fails, men feel their need of divine help.And never does our merciful God turn from the soul that in sincerity seeks Him for help. He is our refuge in sickness as in health.—Ibid., p. 225.
Ministers should keep in mind certain basic principles that help to make prayer more effective in their ministry to the sick:
1. The minister should be relaxed and calm. There are a number of distractions that can make it difficult to pray. If the minister is nervous, hurried, or conscious of the physical condition, his praying can be tense or mechanical.
It is important to concentrate upon the patient and his personal needs. The clergyman should be as fully aware as the physician, that body, mind, and spirit act and react on one another.
Much may depend upon his attitude, both in his sickroom ministry and his prayer.
2. It is important that the patient recognize that the primary purpose of prayer is submission to the will of God.
In prayer for the sick, it should be remembered that «we know not what we should pray for as we ought.» Romans 8:26. We do not know whether the blessing we desire will be best or not. Therefore our prayers should include this thought: «Lord, Thou knowest every secret of the soul.
Thou are acquainted with these persons. . . . If, therefore, it is for Thy glory and the good of the afflicted ones, we ask, in the name of Jesus, that they may be restored to health.
If it be not Thy will that they may be restored, we ask that Thy grace may comfort and Thy presence sustain them in their sufferings.»—Ibid., pp. 229, 230.3. Those who want the minister to pray for their healing and restoration should be led to see that personal confession of sin and its forgiveness is an indispensable part of healing. Any violation of the laws of God, both physical and spiritual, is sin.
God is the one who «forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases» (Ps. 103:3). This is true spiritual and mental therapy that is of greatest value to bodily restoration.
Only by turning to God in faith and penitence, and in consecration and willing obedience, can one come in contact with this complete healing power.
4. Prayers for the sick should be in a conversational tone of voice. One should speak audibly and clearly so that the patient can understand without having to strain his hearing. Under no circumstances should the patient be agitated by loud, emotionally charged prayers.
5. Prayer in the presence of the sick should never be long. One authority on pastoral ministry suggests that the ideal sickroom prayer should contain «about the number of phrases that are in the twenty-third Psalm.» If the sick person should become weary as a result of our much praying, then the effect of our visit would be greatly diminished.
6. The form and content of the prayer for the sick person should be consistent with the troubled one's needs and experience in the Christian life. During his visit with the patient in the hospital room or ward the alert minister will soon determine some of the most obvious spiritual needs.
7. In his hospital work the minister will occasionally find some who believe that prayer should take the place of the remedies prescribed by the doctor. We should make it clear that it is not a denial of faith to use the means God has provided to alleviate pain and aid nature in her work. True medical skill is a gift of God, and the Christian physician is wise an agent of God.
8. When a patient in a ward requests prayer, the minister may tactfully offer to pray so all in the ward may hear, if they so desire, or he may continue with prayer in the same conversational tone that he has been using in speaking to the patient whom he has been visiting.In all his ministry to the sick, it is essential that the pastor strive to emulate the sympathetic understanding and tender pity that so characterized our Lord's ministry to sin-sick man.
He who took humanity upon Himself knows how to sympathize with the sufferings of humanity. Not only does Christ know every soul, and the peculiar needs and trials of that soul, but He knows all the circumstances that chafe and perplex the spirit. His hand is outstretched in pitying tenderness to every suffering child. Those who suffer most have most of His sympathy and pity.—Ibid., p. 249.
The pastor should understand the patient's problem of pain, which has a most disturbing effect and occupies the center of attention. All else seems secondary and it temporarily engulfs the patient.
The sufferer's outgoing interests are blocked and he becomes involuntarily self-centered. One thing is uppermost in his mind and that is his physical hurt. He is ly to feel rejected and cut off.
The mental turmoil in the patient is usually very acute. He is anxious and insecure as he compares his healthful days with the future, which looks so uncertain. His condition is one of dependence.
Others wait upon him and tell him what to do. Perhaps never since infancy has he had such attention. This experience is confusing to most adults and after a few days frequently leads to despondency and protest.
It is not uncommon for the minister to find such patients depressed.
Time hangs heavily upon many sick folks, especially if the period of illness or even convalescence is prolonged.
The majority of people living in this active age are busily employed, and if sudden illness strikes the many hours with little to do but lie and think are a bit overwhelming.The understanding minister will be able to leave some precious promise of the Word of God to occupy the mind and bless the soul. These prescriptions for inner peace and renewed spiritual life are healing medicine indeed.
Spirituality In Hospital Setting , Sample of Essays
Most patients go through different healing processes such as Emotional and Spiritual healing process, these healing process are different and individual to each patient. Due to the uniqueness of each patient hospitals are facing challenges to treat their patients. Most hospitals are developing methods to overcome these challenges.
One of the methods they are developing includes spiritual settings in each area of the hospital, and by providing Chaplin services throughout the day to the patient, family, and friends allowing practice of the individuals spiritual needs.
This paper will discuss the healing hospital and spirituality, challenges of a healing environment, and how biblical passage Matthew 4:23-24 pertains to a healing hospital. The Healing Hospital
A successful hospital patient’s healing starts from the entrance. The hospital doors should be open to anyone who enters through them to be treated with respect, dignity, in regard to their race, culture, ethnic or religion choices.
When the patient arrives at a hospital, they would hope to see clean and organized areas, welcoming reception, or a person who will comfort them and ask their needs. All these are very important factors, but all these factors do not make the hospital a healing hospital.
According to an article titled the “Top Ten Healing Hospitals” having a well-qualified staff that creates comfortable and trustworthy relationships with their patients can make a big difference in the healing process of their patients (Chapman, 2009).
The Essay on Healing: Patient And Health Care
… between healing hospitals and its spirituality. Healing hospitals focuses on a holistic approach to provide a patient care. There are many challenges of creating a healing hospital in … to patients and their families’ cognitive, emotional and spiritual concerns [Mildtein 2005]. The healing hospital is very different from regular health care hospitals. The healing hospital is …
If a patient trusts their health care providers and believes they will get the best treatment, then their healing process will be faster.
As the technology becomes more complicated and patients sickness’s becomes more complex, a hospital needs to have well educated health care staff, trained in the new and advanced technology’s to gain the patient’s trust.
A healing hospital is a hospital that can provide support and service for patients who do not have a family or friends to support them.
A healing hospital recognizes the staff that goes above and beyond to care for the patients and awards staff with incentives to gain satisfaction and thrust of the organization they work for. In regard to patient spiritual needs a healing hospital needs to be prepared to receive every individual regardless of their choice of religion and beliefs.
There are many organizations that can provide spirituality services to patients and their families. Having this service is very important to the patient who wants to practice their beliefs and will help them to become comfortable and connect to their internal soul.
Patients who have a discussion with their health care providers regarding their spirituality and religion will be comfortable during their stay in the hospital. Patients and family find peace and a sense of wellbeing during difficult time, stress, sickness or death, if their spiritual needs are met.
For example on of the “Top Ten Healing Hospital” Mercy Gillbert Medical Center mentioned the three factors that make a hospital a healing hospital;1) Physically attractive environment, 2) culturally sensitive staff, 3) Staff trained to provide loving care (Geimer-Flanders, 2009).
Even if spirituality has a positive patient outcome, it remains neglected by many areas of hospital services.
Most health care staff do not want to participate in spiritual care of their patients due to various reasons, such as lack of knowledge about the required religion, or it might be against their own religion or beliefs to treat the patient.
A healing hospital should educate staff of the importance of respecting each patients religion and beliefs, have a guideline on how to treat those patients according to their religion or belief , let the patients and their family practice their religion during their stay in the hospital.
For example, my place of work has a special prayer program every day for forty five minutes for anyone to attend. The hospital also has a healing garden with different plants that can attract butterflies and birds which can help the patient and family to meditate and restore their hope.

Every hospital to some degree faces a challenge to have a healing environment.
Un other organizations, hospitals are dealing with patients’ lives every day, one of the worst challenges hospitals face is having unwanted events happen to the patient, for example patient developing surgical site infection after surgery will prolong a patients stay in the hospital, cost hospital a lot of money to treat the infection, and can cause patient to die. In order to avoid Surgical Site Infection hospitals need to have a well-trained operating room nurses. Other challenges to a healing environment include patients coming from various parts of the world, and patients with language barriers, even if most of hospitals are required to have translator services, there can be communication breakdowns between the patient and the health care providers, which creates patients not being treated according to their beliefs, which can lead to complications and patient dissatisfaction (Clegg, 2003).Another challenge for the healing environment is patients refusing treatment due to their belief or spirituality, despite the treatment being important to the patient life, nurses should respect the patient’s wishes and try talk with the patients doctor, family, clergy, and most importantly to the patient, to help them make decisions consistent with their spiritual needs and beliefs. Biblical Passage
One passage from the bible regarding healing comes from the book of Matthew 4:23-24 which says ” 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. 24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to him all sick people who were afflicted with various disease and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics and paralytics; and he healed them (Bradley, 2010).

“The passage defines that Jesus was traveling from place to place to teach the gospel and a lot of people came to him to listen him teach and find a solution to their problems and to be cured from their sickness. Conclusion
Having a healing hospital is an important part of the healing process. To overcome the challenge and barriers to having a healing hospital, nurse’s play an important role by advancing their education, understanding the importance of individual spiritual needs and beliefs, and creating an uplifting and comforting environment to the patient.

Dear Lord Jesus, it is my will to surrender to you everything that I am and everything that I’m striving to be. I open the deepest recesses of my heart and invite your Holy Spirit to dwell inside of me.
I offer you my life, heart, mind, body, soul, spirit, all my hopes, plans and dreams. I surrender to you my past, present and future problems, habits, character defects, attitudes, livelihood, resources, finances, medical coverage, occupation and all my relationships.
I give you my health, physical appearance, disabilities, family, marriage, children and friendships. I ask you to take Lordship over every aspect of my life. I surrender to you all my hurt, pain, worry, doubt, fear and anxiety, and I ask you to wash me clean.
I release everything into your compassionate care. Please speak to me clearly, Lord. Open my ears to hear your voice. Open my heart to commune with you more deeply. I want to feel your loving embrace. Open the doors that need to be opened and close the doors that need to be closed. Please set my feet upon the straight and narrow road that leads to everlasting life. Amen.
Precious Lord Jesus, I thank you for your enduring love. You came into the world to set me free from the power of darkness. You embraced a violent death on the cross to pay the penalty on my behalf. You suffered the scourging at the pillar, taking the sickness of humanity upon your own flesh, so that I could be healed.
I come before you now to place all my sin upon your cross and ask for your precious blood to wash me clean.
I place the penalty for my sinfulness, all my sickness, diseases and infirmities upon your cross, and for the sake of your sorrowful passion, I ask to be set free.I accept your sacrifice and receive your gift of reconciliation. I confess your Lordship over every aspect of my life, heart, mind, body, soul and spirit.
Through the power of your cross Lord Jesus, I now resist all forms of sin, sickness and disease. I say to all forms of sickness and disease caused by my own disobedience, that you are not God’s good and perfect will for my life, and I enforce the power of the cross upon you right now.
By the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all forms of sickness and disease to leave my presence immediately. Jesus bore my infirmities. He was wounded for my transgressions.
By his stripes I have been healed. No sickness, pain, death, fear or addiction shall ever be lord over me again. The penalty has been paid in full. I have been ransomed and redeemed, sanctified and set free.
God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from the darkness, I call upon you now to send forth your miracle-working power into every aspect of my being.
In the same way that you spoke unto the dust of the ground when you created humankind in your own image, I ask you to send forth your healing power into my body.
Send forth your word and command every cell, electrical and chemical impulse, tissue, joint, ligament, organ, gland, muscle, bone and every molecule in my body to come under complete and perfect health, strength, alignment, balance and harmony.
It is through you that I live and move and have my being. With every breath I take, I live under your life-giving grace. I ask you to touch me now with the same miracle-working power that you used when you fashioned me inside my mother’s womb. As surely as you have created me in your image and ness, you can also recreate me now and restore my health.
Please fill me with your healing power. Cast out all that should not be inside of me. I ask you to mend all that is broken, root out every sickness and disease, open all blocked arteries and veins, restore my internal organs, rebuild my damaged tissues, remove all inflammation and cleanse me of all infections, viruses and destructive forms of bacteria.
Let the warmth of your healing love flood my entire being, so that my body will function the way it was created to be, whole and complete, renewed in your perfect health. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Dear Lord Jesus, as I rest in the comfort of your love, I ask to experience your gentle embrace as you tenderly wrap your loving arms around me. I trust your compassionate care will bring peace to my mind, serenity to my heart and renewal to my spirit.
In your loving embrace, I ask that you grant me a peaceful night’s rest. Please purify my dreams, cleanse my subconscious and wash my thoughts with the purity of your infinite love. Please minister to my heart, mind, body, soul and spirit as I rest in your compassionate care tonight.
Please send forth your protective angels to stand guard over me as I sleep.May your angelic army destroy all curses, hindrances and demonic influences that have been sent against my ability to experience a peaceful night’s rest.
I ask that your heavenly host protect me as I stay awake and watch over me as I sleep, that awake I may keep watch with Christ, and asleep, rest in his peace. Amen.
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you alone, have I sinned, and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are justified in your sentence and blameless when you pass judgment. Indeed, I was born guilty, a sinner when my mother conceived me.
You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit.
Here is one prayer to share and recite at the end of life. This is important to combine the spirit and body during this transitional time.
