Prayer For Brian

We learned this afternoon, Wednesday, August 19, the Mayo Clinic report on our nephew Brian Duty’s brain cancer. It is Stage 3 Aplastic-Astrocytoma. Treatment will include radiation and chemotherapy, the latter for one year. 28 days between each 5-day treatment. Not sure on the radiation duration.

Obviously for any of us this is horrific. Brian’s 32nd birthday was last Sunday.

Please include Brian Duty, his parents, Dale and Cheryl and Brian’s brother, Paul, in your prayers.

We love them and will do whatever we can to be a caring presence. And hopefully. In the journey Brian will know, as I’ve relayed before, he is not a stranger to God and God’s promise to be with him this moment and all moments that are to be and beyond…will always be kept.

Prayer is more than conversation with God and redemption from isolation. It is a powerful manner in which we reach out to Brian and let him know we are with him. Without hesitance or compromise. So be it.

About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
