Join me in Praying...

Many of you have been praying for my friends John and Donette. John was unable to begin his new treatment last week because medically, his body was not well enough to begin. Over the weekend, John was admitted to the ICU at MD Anderson Hospital. He is sedated and resting comfortably. His blood pressure is low, all of his organs are beginning to shut down. Donette met with the medical team today to discuss the extent of life-saving measures to be taken or not taken when the time comes. Donette asks that you "please pray for strength and peace for the family and joy for John." What a sweet request: "joy for John." Please join me in praying for this family.

Lord, please make your presence very real to Donette and John through the watches of the night tonight. Please wrap them up in Your arms. Give Donette your wisdom, strength, endurance, and hope; and please grant her one request: joy for John. Thank you.

"Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning." Psalm 30:5
