A Special Prayer Request for Al
Fri., Sep. 6. 2019 8:58pm EDT
No, this isn't a request for Weird Al Yankovic. It's actually for a guy named Al Thompson, a longtime fan, supporter, and friend of ApologetiX. Originally from New Jersey, he's lived in Georgia most of the time we've known him, but last year he moved to Tennessee.
Al has faced many challenges over the years — including losing his sight, then later losing his wife — but he never complains. Right now, however, he has a special prayer request for ApologetiX, and he gave us permission to share it with you:
Thanks for the music as always. I really appreciate it. I constantly dig thru all the songs new and old and I swear there is always a song that sings into whatever situation I find myself, lol. We thought the prayer request would have more impact if we allowed you to read it in Al's own words. He's a great guy who has encouraged us many times. Please join us in praying for him.
I do want to ask one thing. My kidney function has dropped this past year, from 30% to 15%. The doctor is planning on putting me on dialysis, but I have been on dialysis before. I told him I would rather die then go thru that again, and I meant it.
So I have asked everyone I know to assault the throne in petition for my kidney's sake. Please pray for my healing on that regard. I am actually quite desperate for this to happen. Thanks in advance for your prayers and for the music the Lord provides thru you, and may it be like the tree in Psalm 1.
