An appeal for prayer on behalf of someone (And yes, I'm serious)

I'm not going to say much more than needs to be said about this, because in spite of everything I wouldn't wish this on anybody.

Several readers of this blog have notified me that Johnny Robertson has been diagnosed with colon cancer. And apparently it's pretty severe.

So I'm asking everyone who is reading this: Please put aside whatever else you feel toward Mr. Robertson, and hold him up in prayer. Ask God to bring him healing. Ask God to bring the peace which surpasses all understanding to him and his family.

Johnny, regardless of the past, I will be praying for you to fully recover from this. And I'm going to sincerely encourage everyone that I know to do the same for you.

Been doing so, since I heard the sad news! Although his clan would claim it does not good for us to pray.

Well, fortunately for Mr. Robertson's sake, we know better and that we have every confidence that God does hear our prayers.
