Facing a grave disease Michael Helwig and the Blackwood Brothers have requested serious prayer.
The following is a statement by Michael on the Blackwood Brothers FaceBook page:
“IF I WIN I WIN, IF I LOSE I WIN”.
In 60 years, to my knowledge, I’ve never been part of a “movement”. Today I’m not only going to be a part of one, I’m going to start it.
Nine months ago, Mike was diagnosed with MS. Three weeks ago, the doctor told him it was not MS, but ALS. (Lou Gehrig’s disease) As you may or may not know, there is no cure for this disease.
The above quote was made by Mike to a pastor on our latest tour. It was during a conversation regarding Mike’s circumstances, and this was Mike’s response to his situation. He later referenced (to me) Matthew 26:39, and said that Jesus’ prayer for God’s will over his own, was no less than he could ask for himself. He said that would be his example in dealing with his circumstances.
I want you to be a part of this movement. I would ask three things of you.
1) Pray for Mike and his family.
2) like this post and leave a comment of encouragement for Mike.
3) Share!!! Not just on Facebook, but with your churches, prayer groups, and friends.
We believe in the power of prayer!
