Voddie Baucham Is in Heart Failure, Shares Urgent Prayer Request


Sunday morning update

Posted Sunday, February 14th

After spending the night in Joburg due to a cancellation, we are back at it today. We go from here to Doha tonight. Bridget and I are overwhelmed by the encouragement and support we continue to receive. But the struggle is real, in more ways than one.

I hate being the guy pushed around in a wheelchair. What I hate even more is the pride that the Lord is revealing. I have always been bigger than most… stronger than most… but now I can’t walk through the airport under my own steam. I was ‘the voice’ of the Genesis3D movie, but now holding conversations can be a challenge.

The Lord is reminding me once again, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7 ESV)

I want my strength back. I want my stamina back. I want my voice back. I want my healthy heart back. But what I want more is to be content when I don’t have those things, knowing that “godliness with contentment is great gain.” (1 Timothy 6:6 ESV)

So when you look at this pic, pray for the guy in the wheelchair… and don’t just pray that he gets up.
