I’m in desperate need of prayers. The more, the better. My mom has stage 4 cancer. She was diagnosed to have 6 months to live 4 months ago. I’ve come to accept that my mom will leave this earth soon. My main focus is to make these next couple of months the best months of her life. Maybe they won’t be the best, but at least I can try.
My prayer request is this… That when my mom is gone that, I am able to forgive my dad for what he is doing to my mom right now. He shows my mom no compassion at all. He acts as if she’s going to live forever. He’s already moved on with another woman as if my mom is dead already. He can’t even have enough respect to wait until she’s gone and buried. Some nights he doesn’t come home at all. It hurts to have to lie to my mom and tell her that my dad is not at home as much because he’s working. To be honest, I don’t think she believes me anyway. I know my mom is hurting because my dad is not there for her like he should be. My siblings don’t want anything to do with my dad right now and I’m praying that we can mend our family. I want to have a conversation with my dad about how I’m feeling, but I don’t want to make things even worse for my mom. On the other hand, I feel like if I don’t speak up for my mom, I will regret it for the rest of my life. Please pray that God works on my dad, pray for peace for my mom, and restoration of our family.
