Urgent Prayer Request

First, I would like to thank everyone for their continued prayers for Rebecca and for our family.  As her April 10th delivery approaches, I have a feeling of peace and calm -something I did not think was possible when we first got her diagnosis. 

I have no idea how her life will unfold but I am trusting God with it every step of the way. 

Today I come to you with an urgent prayer request. We just  learned that Dan's brother Bob has Stage 4 Colon Cancer.  This has been a shock to the entire family as Bob, who is a colonel in the Army JAG Corps has always been so healthy.

We believe that God is bigger than cancer.  In fact, we believe that God is bigger than any disease or any problem that we may face in this fallen world. 

I am asking that you join with me in praying for the following:

That the doctors are able to quickly discern the right course of treatment for him. 
That his body responds well to the treatment.
That he feels the peace and comfort that comes only from knowing that the Lord is in control.
That the rest of the family feels this peace and comfort especially as we are nearing Rebecca's delivery.
That we continue to trust in God and in His plan for each one of us.


I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you. - 2 Kings 20:5

I just commented for the first time on another post, but needed to comment here too. My own brother (40 years old) was diagnosed at the end of March with stage 4 melanoma. Prayers for Bob and all who love him. My brother's name is Rob.
