Tips to Pastoral Counselling
Below are a couple of dozen short tips to Pastoral Counselling that might be useful for you!

Why Cancer?

O no, Lord, not again! Another brother in Christ is suffering from cancer. I do not know how to pray. Our church family is interceding on his behalf that he may be healed. Yet, you have not revealed Your mind on the medical prognosis yet.

If I should pray "Thy will be done", I might sound guilty of heartlessness when the patient and his family are hoping for his recovery; my pray seems to imply a resignation as to whether he lives of die. If I try to reassure them that he will be well soon, I might be guilty of presumption for You have not told me so. Yet, I know that our Redeemer lives and that He will take care of us, for better or for worse in this world. I also know that in the new heavens and the new earth, there will be no sickness and no tears, not poverty and no enmity, no darkness and no death.

Yes, my Lord, I think can now pray confidently, "Father, may Your will be done in my brother's life and in the lives of his family members, for I know that it will be the best for him."

For Meditation and Prayer:
Isaiah 55:9-13
