Who Is Lynne Hybels…and What Does She Need From Us Right Now?

Lynne Hybels Is a Wife, Mother and Grandmother

On her blog, Lynne writes this about her marriage to Bill Hybels: “My husband and I have been married for over four decades. As with many couples, there were times we couldn’t imagine making it through another year, let alone another decade or two. But here we are! One of the lovely rewards of perseverance is getting to celebrate the depth and beauty of a long-term partnership.”

Whatever happens…whatever is revealed…

Dear Church, can we pray that God will pour out his love and grace in this marriage?

Church, can we pray? Can we pray that somehow the love and forgiveness we know in our Savior will surround this family right now?

It seems to be the least we can do as this very public situation unfolds before us about very private issues.

In closing, I ask you to join our team here at ChurchLeaders.com in praying this for Lynne Hybels…

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
