Prayer Needed for D. James Kennedy and Albert Mohler

In Uncategorized on December 30, 2006 at 10:24 am

Having arrived back from North Carolina and seeing my dad come home in good shape (praise God!), I was alerted to the news of two men who are giant defenders of the faith in the evangelical world in the hospital.

Rick Phillips at theReformation 21 blog asks for prayer for Dr. D. James Kennedy.

Please pray for Dr. D. James Kennedy, his wife and daughter, and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. Dr. Kennedy is in grave condition following a heart attack last evening.Jim’s health has deteriorated markedly in the last several months, and he has manfully continued his ministry to the best of his ability. During all my interactions with him even during this trying time, he has exhibited his characteristic good cheer, charm, and force of mind. Along with being a man with great vision for the kingdom of Christ, Jim Kennedy is a true Christian gentleman. Please pray for God to restore him to full health and give him grace as his situation should require.

And from Albert Mohler’s blog (Dr. Mohler serves as President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, we read the following:

Dr. Albert Mohler is recovering at Louisville’s Baptist East hospital following abdominal surgery. Dr. Mohler was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday after experiencing abdominal pain. During a three-hour procedure, surgeons removed scar tissue from a 1980s operation. Dr. Mohler is expected to be released from the hospital next week and will continue his recovery at home. Dr. Russell Moore, dean of the School of Theology and Senior VP for Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, will host The Albert Mohler radio program until he is able to return to the air. Dr. Mohler’s blog and commentary posts will resume as soon as he is able. Please join the Southern Seminary community in praying for Dr. Mohler’s quick and total recovery.

Please join us as we continue to pray for them and their ministries.

  1. I will certainly keep him in my prayers!

  2. Jim,
    I have witnessed your work for the kingdom of heaven over the last two decades and thank you for the leadership thru the power of the Holy Spirit that you have provided in fighting the darkness to restore morality and Christianity in a morally adrift America!
    I pray that God will restore you to health and allow you to anoint an “Elisha” to follow in your ministry with a double portion of your spirit!
