Pray for BeckyLynn Black

Posted by on Aug 10, 2009 in personal | 1 comment

Last month, I asked you to pray for Dave Black because he had contracted malaria. He is still weak, but is recovering from the malaria.

Now, I ask you to pray for his wife, BeckyLynn Black. Yesterday, on his blog (Sunday, August 9, 2009, at 6:50 pm – y0u’ll have to scroll down to find the story), Dave reported that BeckyLynn has been diagnosed with “a rare and aggressive type of uterine cancer”. You can read her report here: “To Go On Living Is Christ“. She meets with an oncologist today.

BeckyLynn writes this in her post:

Let me be very clear: I do not long to live. What I long for is that I be useful for the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus. I’m in the same position as the Apostle Paul….I am ready for Heaven, to see His face…but if I can be useful for the Kingdom, to help believers (including my own family) grow strong, to influence others for Jesus, then I am willing and happy to remain on earth a while longer.

If we all thought this way, it would help us keep life in perspective.

I’ll keep you updated whenever I hear anything.
