There is nothing quite as nerve-wracking as waiting for the results of a test to come back from a medical laboratory or diagnostic center, particularly if the symptoms and test carried out are strikingly similar to those of a terrible disease or any other healthcondition that poses a significant risk to one's life.
It takes a strong faith in God and the grace of God to be able to keep one's composure and one's hope throughout this time.
God, my Healer, I pray in Jesus' name that the results of these lab tests will be good news. You are aware of my reliance on You to bring about a total and final resolution to this issue, and I am steadfast in my belief in Your Word. In faith and love, I keep my focus on You, waiting for Your rescue. Amen.
I apologize for the way I've expressed my feelings recently. Lord, I believe in you, but my human nature can't help but worry at times. To the contrary, I know that You haven’t given me a spirit of fear but instead, You have given me a spirit of power, love, and sound mind.
Lord, even if the results of the biopsy aren't good news, I'm going to put my faith in You and know that You'll take care of me no matter what happens. Grant me the strength to seek solace in You and master my feelings. Just be who You are and help me realize it.

Worship and prayer are crucial. There are those of us who struggle with prayer. We don't always feel like we're doing a good job, and we don't always do it. However, prayer can be significant for doctors by bolstering our health, for patients by providing consolation and support, and for scientific inquiry into supernatural claims as a technique of personal verification.
