Here it is: My 100th post. I asked myself, "what should I post about in #100?" I decided that I should make it a tribute to the most influential author and preacher in my life: Dr. John Piper. As some of you know, Piper was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is presently weighing his options as to treatment. Most likely, John will have to miss an extended period of time from his normal ministry.
Lord, thank you for your servant, John Piper. Thank you for giving him such a grand vision of You and Your Word. Thank you for intersecting my life with his writings and sermons. Thank you for the sustaining grace through these years of ministry. I pray that you would heal him from this cancer. I pray that you would use this time to increase the fruitfulness of his ministry. I pray for a quick recovery and profitable study time. Use this cancer to help him spread a passion for Your supremacy in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ. Only because of Jesus' shed blood, Amen.
