In Prayer Today

Updated: Bro. George Spivey passed away this evening around 8:00 Eastern time. Please continue to pray for his wife and family in the coming days!


Our family is in prayer today for some old friends of ours, the George Spivey family. Just a few weeks ago, Bro. Spivey was found to have cancer. Although he had surgery and some radiation treatments, he quickly took a turn for the worse, and today his wife, Ruth, and their children are waiting by his side for him to go to Heaven. When he's awake and alert enough to understand and Ruth has talked to him and told him it won't be long till he gets to go to Heaven, he gives her a thumbs up! Ruth always says that God's grace and strength have been incredible these past few weeks, sustaining their family through such a quick-moving illness. She is not without sorrow and grief, but neither is she without that blessed hope (I Thessalonians 4:13-18)!

If you think of the Spivey family today, please mention them to the Lord. They will need much prayer in the coming hours.
