A Day to Pray

Three weeks ago, I asked you to pray for the family of Matt Metheny, who at the tender age of 22 was seemingly losing a battle to leukemia.

Yesterday morning, Matt passed from this life.

I ask you today to find a quiet moment and pray specifically for Kim, Lynne, and Josh -- Matt's dad, mom and little brother. Their hearts are breaking.

At times like this, answers are elusive despite God's promises. We grapple with our questions, finitely wondering, "Why?" That's where the Methenys are today and what they need most is a great cloud of witnesses laboring in prayer for their heartache.

Thank you.
