Yesterday afternoon, Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer posted a prayer request on Facebook for an upcoming surgery to remove a lobe of her left lung.
Shirer, whose mother, Lois Evans, passed away Dec. 30, says doctors discovered a nodule on her left lung three years ago.
"This past summer, it was clear that something surgical needed to be done as the nodule had begun to grow and show signs of dangerous irregularities," she writes. "As you know, the past few months has been filled with alot of difficulty for my entire family. For those reasons, the surgery was delayed but I cannot put it off any longer without jeopardizing my own health."
She says a group of women prayed for her upcoming procedure on Tuesday, and since then, several reports about her condition have spread on the internet.
For this reason, she decided to publicly address the reports herself.
"Through it all, we still believe God," she says. "We are trusting Him for a favorable outcome and that I will return to full health personally and full function in ministry."
