Lord in Your Mercy, hear our Prayers for Brother Thom


I’m currently being treated with ingenol mebutate for actinic keratosis. It’s a pretty unpleasant treatment. Actinic keratosis is caused by years of sun exposure and can be pre-cancerous. I’ve had a patch on the left side of my face for over two decades. Other treatments have failed to resolve the problem, so here I am. The ingenol mebutate kills the bad cells by activating your bodies defenses against them. This process continue for about two weeks.

Over exposure to the sun can very literally kill you. Regular check ups with your primary care provider and a referral to a dermatologist when necessary can save your life. Visit cancer.org for more information.

Brother Mark sent me the prayer below this morning, and like all of his prayers, it is too beautiful not to share.

Dear God:  As often as I turn to You, it is not nearly often enough.  You are a good and mighty friend and guide.  Please be with Thom and his family as they go through these treatments.  Please guide each of them; be with Thom as he sees these results in the mirror each day; give him peace of mind and free him from fear of the future.  Raise up all of our spirits and bless us with Your continued presence in us.  I ask these things in the name of Your precious son, Jesus Christ.  Amen.
