Two Prayer Requests from Karl's Wife

Here are two important prayer requests from Deb Messner, the wife ApologetiX lead guitarist/producer Karl Messner:
Please pray for my very close friend, Lorri, who has been battling Stage IV breast cancer for the past two years. Lorri is just 41 years old and lives in Georgia, and I have known her for close to 10 years now.
Over the past two years we have watched her fight her cancer so bravely that it constantly brings tears to our eyes. I have been traveling back and forth to Georgia quite a bit since her diagnosis to be with her through various hospital stays and surgeries, and I was just there a little over a week ago to see her at her parent's home.
Lorri's condition has been rapidly deteriorating over the past month, as the cancer has moved into her lymph system and is spreading very rapidly due to her not being strong enough to continue her chemotherapy. I just got an email this morning that Lorri took yet another turn for the worse.
If you could, please keep Lorri in your prayers. She is an amazing inspiration to all who know her, and her close circle of friends are having a great deal of difficulty watching Lorri go through this terrible situation. Your prayers for Lorri, her doctors and her parents are greatly appreciated.
Also, this morning my dad fell six to eight feet from a ladder that wasn't secured to the side of the building (although it was supposed to be), and he has several broken ribs, a bruised lung, a concussion, and a bunch of abrasions to his left elbow, leg and knee. He's resting at home now and has a doctor's appointment with the worker's comp doctor in the morning. He's in a lot of pain and extremely uncomfortable. Please keep him in your prayers.
Thanks so much.
