Ira Stanphill's timeless lyrics, I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand, bring to mind the promise that God makes to His children to never leave or forsake us ... even when we face grave illness. Buck Rambo has been battling stage IV bone cancer, and the latest MRI shows that it has spread up his spine. His wife Mae and daughter Reba ask for prayers as Buck deals with a lot of pain and weakness. Visit the Rambo McGuire Facebook page for updates.

And, Rory Feek posted a heartbreaking update yesterday about his wife, Joey. She is now under hospice care and only the Lord knows how much time she has before she goes to her heavenly home. Click here for the latest information, and please continue to pray for this family.

We know many of you are suffering with illness (or the illness of a loved one) as well. Let's remember to lift each other up in prayer this week.
