God of Hope, fill us with Your Joy and Peace

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” ~ Romans 15:13


The results from Mike’s biopsy indicate that he has Cholangiocarcinoma, cancer of the bile duct. They are confident that it’s in the early stage and that it hasn’t spread, so they are preparing him for surgery on Monday at noon. From a medical perspective, a surgical resection offers the only potential chance of cure in cholangiocarcinoma, but we know that “nothing is impossible with God!” (Luke 1:37) We are thankful that Mike is a candidate for this surgery, because few patients have this surgery as an option since this cancer is so difficult to discover in its early stages. It is a major operation that will take around 6 hours. We are so glad to have so many of you, dear friends and family, holding Mike up in prayer!

  • Please pray for wisdom and divine guidance for the surgeon and medical team
  • Pray for God’s complete healing for Mike as well as a speedy recovery
  • Pray that the God of hope will continue to fill us and our family with all joy and peace as we believe in Him, so that we may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!
