Pray for a Child, Continued

My 8-year-old friend, Mason, who has a brain tumor, is back in the hospital and declining rapidly. Pray for him and for his family. He, his father (a single parent) and his mother have all been baptized in the past 14 months. These have to be horribly difficult days for all of them and for Mason's twin brother.

Pray that they will hang on to the Lord, no matter what happens. We've all prayed for healing, of course, but the Lord has not granted that, at least not yet.

This is a story I know all too well. We will pray for them.

Thank you, brother. I'd gathered from your web site that you'd had similar sadness. The solid hope of the resurrection of the dead is a wonderful thing.
