Another one of our Gospel music family is in need of prayer. Michael Helwig of the Blackwood Brothers has been dealing with issues that call for Godly intervention.
Earlier today, Mike’s band mate, Butch Owens posted the following :
“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!
Mike, we at SGNScoops want you to know that we are praying for you and your wife Leslie and your family.
