...Yet not my will, but Yours be done.

Luke 22:42
"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."

The prayer of our hearts for two years:  Father, please.  Please.  PLEASE!  Take this cup from us.  Heal Ryan.  Please restore him to health.  Please give us normalcy again.  Please do not let him go from this earth too soon.

But Lord, we do trust you.  We know Your character, and we know Your truth.  We stand on that knowledge, and that knowledge coupled with Your enveloping grace, are the only cards we have to play.  So Lord, we ask that Your will would be done, because we trust that even though it doesn't make sense on this side of eternity, somehow these plans are meant to prosper us (and to further Your kingdom, more importantly) and not to harm us.

I imagine that as Jesus prayed that prayer in the garden of Gethsemane, that he was probably feeling a lot like we are right now.  Dreading what lay ahead.  But yet also peacefully resigned to the will of the Lord.

You see, friends, we have been grappling with our own future this week, much the same way that Jesus grappled with his.  My blog post last Monday was almost triumphant in nature.  That was the tone of the day.  Things were looking up.  We were going to get out of the hospital.  Bleeding had stopped.  Our oncologist was starting to talk about the possibility of doing more treatments in the future.  We were ecstatic.

And then the bleeding started again.  In earnest.

And our doctor, full of compassion and concern, told us last Tuesday the words that we have so dreaded hearing.  We are out of options.  We have done everything that we can do to save Ryan's life.  It was now time to go home and enjoy what time we have left.  And that time is probably better measured in days and weeks than in months.

We have always wanted to keep this community, you, our support network, as up to date as possible, but facing what seems to be approaching has been difficult.  We needed time to process. I do hope you'll understand why we haven't been forthcoming with this news - it has ripped our hearts to shreds and we have struggled with how and when to tell all of you. I know that this post is going to be a tremendous letdown for literally thousands of people, and I so wish that I had better news to bring.

Thank you for the grace, love, and support you have shown our family for now over two years. Please pray with us for courage, comfort and peace right now. We continue to place our hope in the Lord, and we always will.

We love you.

God bless your entire family for your unwavering testimony in this dark time.

"Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend...For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal...Thought he may slay me, yet I will hope in him." - Job 16:19-21, 5:18, 13:15

I wish I had the words to express all of my thoughts clearly. I have never met your family, yet I feel I know you through these posts. I just want you to know that I am praying for you during these difficult days that you are going through. I also want you to know something really important. Your story and what you are going through is not in vain. If this even makes sense what I am saying. I have grown stronger to our Precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at a time when I wasn't "feeling it" - because of your story. Your lives glorify Our God and for that I thank you. I hope this made sense and will just continue to lift all of your and your families in prayers.

Ryan and Kendra, we've never met, but I heard of your story through Frontline. I experienced this with my wife 7 years ago who went home to be with the Lord as a result of a brain tumor, as did my current wife, Donna Call who knows both your parents. Donna also lost her husband to cancer in 2000, so we are praying for God's grace and peace for you both, and Kendra, for you as you go on with life without Ryan, but knowing he's with the Lord. It does not make it any easier, but by God's grace, you will make it. Dave Records

Nan Kubicek said...

This news is so heartbreaking, yet I have often felt renewed in my faith because of the strength in yours. You have all been such an inspiration to so many! The battle with cancer may have been lost yet you are triumphant in the eyes of the Lord eyes because of your strength of faith and love, which you have shared with all of us. Although our families aren’t close (I’m Cathey’s cousin on her mom’s side), I often felt close to your family because you allowed me to share in your journey. Thank you for showing us what true faith is!
Much love and prayers,
Nan and family

David Robinson said...

Praying for courage, comfort and peace as you asked. This song by Kutless came to mind. God Bless you all!

Even If

Sometimes all we have to hold on to
Is what we know is true of who You are
So when the heartache hits like a hurricane
That could never change who You are
And we trust in who You are

Even if the healing doesn’t come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn’t come

Lord we know Your ways are not our ways
So we set our faith in who You are
Even though You reign high above us
You tenderly love us
We know Your heart
And we rest in who You are

Even if the healing doesn’t come

Unknown said...

Someday when my last line is written
Someday when I've drawn my last breath
When my last words on earth have been written
And my lips are sealed in death
Don't look on my cold form in pity
Don't think of me as one dead
It'll just be the house I once lived in
My spirit by then will have fled

I'll have finished my time here allotted
But I won't be in darkness alone
I will have heard from heaven
A summons to come home
And when my body is in the grave
Don't think that I'll be there
I won't be dead, but living
In the place Jesus went to prepare

And after all is said and done
Know that my last earnest prayer
Is that my loved ones be ready
Someday to meet me there

It's Time To Use Your Authority!
Exodus 14:15–16
15And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. 16But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it...
The problem with the body of Christ today is not that we are not praying. We are praying. But many of us are praying desperate prayers. We are praying, “God, help…God, please…God, do something about my problem!”
If you are smiling a little by now, most likely, you know about such prayers and might have prayed a couple yourself. My friend, God does not want you to pray pleading prayers all the time. He wants you to use the authority He has given you to pray powerful prayers, to boldly command and to “stretch out your hand” and see miracles happen.
When Moses stood before the Red Sea with Pharaoh’s army in hot pursuit, the Bible tells us that he cried out to God. But God told him, “Why do you cry to Me?”
There is a time for you to cry out to God and there is a time for you to use your authority. God told Moses, “Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it.”
The “rod” you have today is the name of Jesus. As you command in Jesus’ name, your “sea” will open and you will go on dry ground through the midst of your problem.
Do you realize that Jesus did not say, “Go and pray for the sick”? He said, “Go and heal the sick.” (Matthew 10:8) So stop pleading and asking all the time, and start using the authority you have in Christ.
Jesus told the church, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore…” (Matthew 28:18–19) My friend, God wants you to go and use the authority that He has given you. And as you go, miracles will flow!

Christine Taracks said...

Ryan and Kendra,
I'm so sorry to hear this news. Please know we're praying and hold you close in our hearts.

Marsha Longcore said...

You know, some of the most encouraging verses in the Gospels are these: “And as many as touched Him were made well” (Mark 6:56), for “power went out from Him and healed them all”. (Luke 6:19) I love those verses! That is our Jesus!
So that night, when He said, “Take, eat; this is My body,” as He broke the bread and gave it to His disciples to eat, they knew what it meant. They were probably thinking, “We are going to ingest His health into our bodies! Hallelujah!”
That is what you must believe when you partake of the Holy Communion. It is not just a ritual or symbolic act. No, you must believe that He is the true bread from heaven who took your cancer, diabetes and heart disease, anything - big and small, so that you can have His supernatural health! And when you eat of His broken body with this revelation, you will have life in abundance and the health of the Lord!
As you are praying, KNOW that you already have your answer or breakthrough—“believe that you receive them”. The Bible also tells us that we already have whatever we are praying for because we are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3) Sometimes, the symptoms of a sickness or lack may return and you think that you still have not received your blessing. That is the time to release your faith and declare that you already have it. You are not confessing to get it. You are confessing because you already have it in Christ!

Dear Prudhomme family,
I do not know you personally but have been following your story for a few weeks since a post showed up on my timeline on FB. I have prayed for your family and prayed for a healing from our Great Physician and Heavenly Father. I have no idea what you are going through, having never been through such. But I have been so encouraged and amazed by your unfailing faith and love for and trust in our Lord. I know that your journey, Ryan will be amazing when you leave this world, but the journey for your wife and son will be so difficult as they miss you and I hurt for them both. I will continue to pray for God to give you a miracle. There is nothing too hard for God. He healed my son almost 20 years ago of a heart defect at birth. Again, you have been an inspiration to me and I will never be the same. In Christian Love and Hope,

Ryan, Kendra & Colton,
My husband,Ken and I know you all from Jeff & Jenni Hankins. We are Jenni's parents. We have been following your blog for awhile now and pray for you all daily. We love you so much! We hope last Friday was one of your special Friday's with popcorn and ballgames! It's hard for me to type, the tears keep flowing. I am studying Beth Moore's "Believing God" and it's all based on knowing our God and what faith is all about. I always thought I had faith but there is so much more to learn and to be tested that I think maybe I might have just scratched the surface. But with you all my faith has soared, however, God answers, I know His ways are always best. We will continue to lift you up to Our Most High God and are so very blessed to be by the side of our brother and sister in Christ and their beautiful boy! Here is a verse that I learned this week that I absolutely love. May the power of God's word dive deep within your soul today and refresh you. Sending all our love and the love of Jesus Christ to you today and always!
Psalm 103:1-5
New International Version (NIV)
Psalm 103

Of David.

1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Your testimony is inspiring. Your love for Jesus is incredible. Your love for each other is encouraging. We are so heartbroken to hear this news. Thank you for your transparancy. It is so hard to share this time of grief. But thank you for the priveledge of letting us pray for you. I remember something that Ryan said to me at the womens conference in 2010..something that has encouraged and strengthened me. We were talking about how its hard sometimes to know God's will when it seems what he is asking is just too much. Ryan said to me. "Just remember to focus your life around serving him, loving him. He will show you what he wants you to know. But he doesn't always tell us everything." Thank you for building into my life this principle and living it to the fullest.

Ryan and Kendra, I'm heartbroken in this news, but want you to know that your faith in this journey has been truly inspiring, not only to me as a believer, but those whose walk in faith is not as strong. Remember He'll only bend you, not break you. Nor will he give you more than you can handle. Your strength and faith is so much more than mine would be. You are such an inspiration. I still pray that you'll leave your legacy of faith to others through your book. I'm also praying that God will still continue to stump the doctors as the all-knowing Great Physician.

God can and will strengthen you through your grief and heartache. Sometimes when we are consumed by what we are dealing with, it is difficult to quiet the mind enough to allow yourself to hear God's words. Remember that His love for us is so great - greater than that we have even for our own children, that He will comfort you and give you strength to get through the day.

God's will be done? God's will is NOT that you would die of cancer at this time. God's will is that you have LIFE and that you have it more ABUNDANTLY. Jesus was tormented and beaten so that his stripes would purchase your healing. I speak to this demonic cancer in your body and command it in the name of Jesus Christ to shrivel, die and never return. You are a child of the King and have a purpose and future. I command life into your bones, blood and cells. Restoration of health and proper function to your body. God use this situation to glorify your name by miraculously healing our brother when all others say hope is gone. Our hope is in the Lord. Bless this family and give them peace as You work mightily at this time.

You have a wonderful family, marriage and especially husband. The commitment that you and Ryan have for each other is an shinning example for other couples. I have been praying for Ryan and your family for a while already because my father passed from pancreatic cancer at 52 and Ryan also played soccer with my son Josh P., and Ryan was always smiling, a good friend, and the best goalie ever. Spiritual you are so strong and that is an inspiration to all of us. Love and strength to your amazing family. Tina Marie
