.WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for Tuesday March12, By Marty Martel. 


Marty, Please send out a prayer request for my dad (Ray Emmett), who is in the hospital with a strep strain of pneumonia. Also, please pray for Renee, his wife, who has been by his side and really needs strength from our Lord to help him fight the fight. But I also want to sing praises that docs thought it would be lung cancer, and it was not! Thank you so much in advance! May God Bless you and your readers for your prayers! Linda Kyle

Please pray that the Catholic Cardinals in Rome will select the man who will be the next Holy Father of the Catholic Church and that he will guide the Lord’s flock to walk in the goodness of the Blessed Savior. Pray for whomever that Cardinal will be, that he will make necessary changes needed in the Vatican’s hierarchy.

Before he spoke to his congregation on Sunday, the Rev. David Landrith of Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville read a passage from the Old Testament book of Psalms. “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom,” he read from Psalm 90. Then Landrith, who was diagnosed last week with a rare and aggressive form of cancer called colorectal melanoma, told his 9,000-member congregation that his days are likely numbered. Doctors told Landrith that in most cases, people with his condition live about 20 months, though some have lived as long as five years. Landrith said he would fight the cancer but said that his fate is in God’s hands. “I am going to pray, I am going to fight, I am not going to give up,” he said in his sermon, posted online at“But more than anything else, I want to give glory to Jesus in this.” Landrith said the hardest part of learning of his illness was telling his family. Landrith, who is 49, and his wife, Jennifer, have three kids, two who are still in high school. He said his family will draw strength from their faith. “I know that his grace is sufficient for everything we face,” he said. Through most of the sermon, Landrith maintained a hopeful tone. He did break down at one point, talking about the toll his illness will take on his family and especially on his wife. “I keep telling my wife, ‘I am so sorry I am putting you through this,’” he said. The church will post updates on Landrith’s condition on its website, An email address,, has been set up for well-wishers to send messages to Landrith.

Oh Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your apostles,

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you”;

I pray that I and your whole church, the body of all faithful people,

Will know your peace, and live in harmony and unity,

One with another, in accordance with your wishes.

This I pray to you, who lives and reigns forever.
