Last year at this time, the eve of Christmas Eve, I was preparing for surgery. The next day I was to have a colon resection, the first of many cancer treatments.
As that was going on Michael Spencer, the proprietor of The Boars Head Tavern, an online community offering a wide variety of lively conversation on things theological, ministerial and general Christianity, shut down the Boars Head Tavern, save for one matter - to pray for me.
I was touched and would like to return the favor. I am not the proprieter of anything but my own little blog and shutting down is no big deal because, let's face it, with my health over the last year I have seemed to be more "shut down" than not. But I know I still have some faithful readers and want to take this opportunity to ask you to pray for Michael.
Michael has an unspecified cancer diagnosis and is going into surgery for it this morning. We don't know exactly what they are operating on, but let's face it, when you must do surgery on Christmas Eve it is urgent.
So please do pray fervently for Michael during these difficult days that He may feel the peace of Christ in the midst of his suffering.
