Prayer Needed

Dr. Marshall St. John, the pastor of Wayside Presbyterian Church in Signal Mountain, Tennessee (and my dear friend) has been diagnosed with stage IV malignant melanoma in his lungs. Please pray for Marshall and his wife, Grace as Marshall begins treatment for this very aggressive cancer. Marshall had to immediately retire from Wayside. Please pray for God to heal Marshall and grant him great faith to receive God's providence with gratitude. Please pray for Grace as she walks with her husband as he faces this battle. Please pray for Wayside as they grieve for their pastor and losing his ministry from the pulpit while at the same time facing a pulpit committee to call a new pastor.


  1. We're praying for him in Oak Ridge.

  2. Hi Everyone,
    Thanks for praying for me. I'm not dead yet! Several of my flock have encouraged me to "live til you die!" So, by the Grace of God, I will try to keep involved. I'm expecting some serious surger in about a week or two, and that may slow me down. And I hear the chemo makes you wish to be dead. But as of now, I can't talk much, but I'm still here. Travis, bless you brother! I love you in the Lord!
