(CHRISTIAN HEADLINES) — Last month on August 17, Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz revealed on her blog that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and asked people to pray for. A month later, on September 18, Lotz had surgery to learn more about the severity of her condition.

The day before her surgery Lotz wrote in a post on her website, “What I want to convey to so many of you who are praying is that the storms may be swirling around me, but they are not swirling within me.”

Lotz continued, “I have total peace. Joy. Expectancy. Trust. I know I am in God’s hands. I know also the reason for what I can only describe as a vibrant calm is that I am not only being carried by our Heavenly Father, I am being carried by your prayers.”
