A Pastor’s Cancer Prayer

Bruce Buchanan is a long-time pastor and the father of 3 godly sons (one of whom, Greg, was our intern at Tri-County Bible Church last summer). Bruce has also been diagnosed with colon cancer. This post (and particularly the moving prayer at its conclusion) is excellent. Here’s an excerpt:

“God, deliver me from this preoccupation.  I want to be a wise steward with the life and breath that You so graciously give, but I don’t want pursuit of life and breath to dominate my life.”

Most of us don’t have cancer, at least yet. But perhaps we should live and pray as though we did.

Pray for the Buchanan family. Grace.
