We are considering a procedure involving radioactive spheres which are released into the hepatic (liver) artery – kind of like a heart cath – with the desired result being the irradiation of the liver tumors. There are some good cells which are sacrificed/killed in the process as in most forms of cancer treatments, but it is acceptable amounts. The liver heals and hopefully all cancer cells are gone. Please pray with us concerning this decision.

2 Samuel 6:10-12 10 He was not willing to take the ark of the LORD to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it aside to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. 11 The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months, and the LORD blessed him and his entire household. 12 Now King David was told, "The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God." So David went down and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing.
How could an item like the Ark of the Covenant "bless" someone? The Ark was where the presence of God resided on earth. So it was not the Ark itself, rather the presence of God that was doing the blessing. With the New Covenant through Christ, the presence of God can and does abide in the heart of the believer. If you claim Christ as Savior and Lord, and as a result the Holy Spirit dwells in your heart, you can also enjoy the Presence of God, just like Obed-Edom. You can be blessed just like he was blessed. And the neat thing is, when God is the one doing the blessing, you know you have been blessed.
May God confirm his blessings to you this day. George
