Any friend of yours is a friend of ours, and deserves our care, concern and prayers. I will commit him to prayer asking for God to be merciful to him, comfort and heal him, and to touch his life and let know that there are people around him who care in his time of suffering. In fact, I've just prayed for him, and will continue to do so in the coming days.

Hello dear ladybug. I am so sorry that your friend was recently diagnosed with esophagus cancer. I hope that the doctors will help to cure the cancer to make him live a good and healthy life without suffering from the cancer any more. Bless him and good luck to him. Take care, friend.

we find assurance in God's promises, as it is written in James 5:15.. "And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the LORD will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven." God honors our prayers when we pray humbly and sincerely from the heart, according to His will because He knows what is best for us -- and for the people we love.. :)

This is a very sad stage in one's life. Just keep on praying and always put your trust in God. Sometimes God is just letting some things to happen for us to have stronger faith with Him. Have faith and trust Him with all your heart. It is only God who can be able to save him from what is happening on him now. Remember, our God is a good and merciful God. There is nothing impossible if we pray with Him with all our heart.
