Carman Licciardello called all his "ninja prayer warriors" to intercede ahead of his biopsy results. The hit Christian musician recently had a tumor removed and expects the results on Tuesday.

"Anyway, they got the tumor out. Doc said it went deeper than expected into my muscles (a few extra stitches) not much pain but today I'm 'really sore.' I will know on May 16th about the biopsy but I expect, with all these Ninja prayer warriors, there will be nothing there," Carman says on Facebook.

Carman found the tumor in April days ahead of recording his testimony in studio.

"After 40 years, I think I know a well timed attack when I see one. I'm about to go into the studio and start recording a song about my cancer healing testimony but I needed a routine check up first," Carman said at the time.

The contemporary Christian music star was diagnosed with myeloma in February 2013. Myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells, is deadly. Doctors gave him three to four years to live. But Carman, who has recorded 15 gold and platinum albums and videos and has sold more than 10 million records, refused to go down without an all-out war.

Though he's still battling tumors, the singer continues to work toward a new studio album.
