Pray for Molly McCoy

Steve McCoy is pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Woodstock, Illinois. He also is a very thoughtful blogger. I have had the privilege of getting to know Steve a little over the last year. He represents a hopeful future for evangelical pastoral ministry. He is the kind of young pastor that Southern Baptists should pray keep laboring within the SBC.

He and his wife, Molly, have 4 children. Molly was recently diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, which affects her brain functions, and is scheduled for surgery this Friday, July 13, in hopes of correcting it. Please pray for the McCoys as they travel this journey with faith and hope.

Tom, Molly's surgery is actually scheduled for Friday (the 13th). Although I'm sure they would appreciate the early prayers anyway.

Gregory,

You are right. I have spent the whole day...up to reading your comment, thinking today was Thursday! Blame it on VBS. :-)

Thanks,
tom

Lord, have mercy on Steve and Molly. Be gracious to them, and grant that this surgery would be of benefit to her body. Amen.

I will pray today that God will bless and keep this family by his strong hand, and that indeed healing would come to this little girl.

May the God of all comfort grant this family comfort so that they may in turn, comfort others in need. (2 Cor. 1:3-5)

My son has Chairi and he has a MRI annually. They have recommended that he not have surgery because he is a syptomatic I was wondering if Tom in his journey would have insight into that.I am a Southern Student and go to a pediatric Neurologist in Louisville.
