Please Pray for Our Friend Marty

Please pray for our good friend Marty Waite, who has been diagnosed with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Marty is in the fourth and final stage of this life-threatening disease and currently has only 49 percent capacity in his lungs. Doctors have told him the disease is incurable and the best he can hope for is to maintain his present situation with medication, which is very expensive.
Marty, who also has asthma, was recently hospitalized with a severe attack, and has been told it was a miracle he was able to walk out of the hospital again. His doctors have ordered him to stop working immediately and that, combined with the costly treatment of the disease, puts him in a very precarious economic situation.
Marty has a wife, two grown children and a grandchild. We spoke with him on the phone Monday, and he is facing these very serious challenges with great courage and faith. Please pray for God's provision with his health, his financial needs, and his peace of mind. Thank you.
