This morning at 9:30, surgery on the brain of my good friend’s daughter began. This surgery is being done to correct a blood vessel issue from a disease called Moyamoya. This surgery has to be done before she can have the next surgery, a kidney transplant.

If you have ever met Mary, you know she  is always smiling, super sweet, and ready to help anyone and everyone who needs it.

Now it is our turn to help her.

How do we help?

Prayer. Lots of prayer.

She is in the midst of what we are calling a Mary-thon, running the race of her life. And we want to hold her up in prayer so that she finishes this race well, in full health.

So whether you know Mary or not, would you join me in prayer for her today and in the coming months as she recovers from this surgery and prepares for the next one?

I ran across this quote in my Runner’s World Quote of the Day today and thought it was very appropriate for Mary during this time:

I run because it’s so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t. But then you find your inner strength, and realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought. –Arthur Blank, co-founder of The Home Depot

Thanks for joining us in prayer for Mary!!!
