Megachurch pastor Tony Evans is asking for prayer after discovering his wife's cancer has returned.

"Lois has been a cancer-free patient under care for a while. However, her last routine scan revealed that her rare gallbladder cancer has returned. We need God to intervene as we continue our search for an effective treatment," Evans wrote in an Instagram post.

"We are going to trust God in the dark for a solution, and we are asking you to fervently pray to that end," he continued, adding that the news of his wife's cancer was "shocking."

"My faith is being tested in a way I've never experienced... but I trust God. I choose to believe—our whole family is choosing to believe that, even now, He knows what He is doing," Evans shared. "Even during these uncertain times, we are strengthened by the joy of the Lord. We know that we will be strengthened also by the prayers of the saints in the days to come."

The pastor said he would keep his followers updated on his wife's progress.

The news comes less than a year after Evans' niece Wynter Pitts suddenly died. Evans recalled the scene in the hospital after Pitts passed away.
