Pray for Kate Bowler

Kate Bowler, a young and gifted American religious historian at Duke Divinity School, needs out prayers today.  Here is what her husband posted on her website:

“Well my loves, this is not how I wanted to tell you. I need your prayers for tomorrow’s surgery. I’ve got stage four colon cancer and it’s going to be a long haul. Love you.” Kate Bowler
This how most of you found out.   I found out today on the phone.  Kate, my wife, calling me from work.  It’s a moment that you never wish on anyone.  And I won’t say anything more than that.
Here’s what the doctors are saying.  They’re calling it is stage 4 colon cancer and liver cancer.  However, they don’t know anything 100% for certain until they get in there tomorrow.   There is a slim chance it’s benign, but they weren’t hopeful.   I’ll update here tomorrow.
Your prayers are needed and appreciated.
From what I am able to decipher, her surgery is scheduled for today at noon.
