Pray For David

I write this post with a heavy heart.  Just this past week David Landrith who is the senior pastor at Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville, TN was diagnosed with an extremely rare and aggressive form of cancer.  I have only had the privilege of meeting David once, but you cannot meet him without knowing that he is man that is in sync with God and seeks Him daily.  He has a great love for Jesus and for people.  David is a great pastor who has been used greatly by God over the years in reaching people.  I would like to encourage you to read the press release concerning his diagnosis here.  I also want to encourage you to take the time to listen or watch his message this past week where he talks about this.  Never once do you hear a moment of whining or complaining.  Instead you hear humility, positivity, and a great desire for Jesus Christ to be glorified through it all.  Please join us in praying for David.  Pray for his healing.  We know that God can do a great work and heal him of this terrible disease.  Pray for his peace and that God will comfort him through the hard days ahead.  Pray for his family during these times of uncertainty.  Pray for the doctors that they will be wise in surgeries and in treatment.  Then most of all pray that God is glorified.  I know that this is David's desire and I know that God will be glorified in all of this.
