My Dear Brothers and Sisters:
The Father of the editor of JWR has been extremely ill for most of the last 3 months - and his desparate son has sent at least 2 emails such as the following (excerpted & reprinted with his permission):
This is one of the hardest letters I’m likely to ever write.
My father is in his 80s and his life is now hanging in the balance.
… I’m asking that each of you take a moment and recite a prayer on behalf of Yehudah ben (son of) Rivka.
… Please beseech the One Who Grants Life to allow my father to live!
After you do, PLEASE forward my request to prayer lists and
friends/family or anybody else…
In Gratitude and friendship,
Yehuda is Hebrew for Judah
Binyamin is Hebrew for Benjamin
No matter how old one’s father is, it’s tough to watch him die, and it’s terrible to watch him suffer.
Please pray for Yehuda that he will recover from these severe illnesses and that he and Binyamin will find Yeshua the Moshiach of Israel, promised by the Prophets and the Lamb of God promised to Abraham.
Your Brother in Christ, Michael
