Prayer Request for a Friend

Please pray for a friend of mine who has been dealing with the knowledge that she has breast cancer. She has been wrestling with this knowledge for the past couple of months. Pray for peace for her and for her to make the decisions that God wants her to make regarding treatment. Let her rest easily knowing that she is God's daughter and HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW.
