I know that I have mentioned this several times over the course of this summer, but I wanted to specifically ask that you pray for Dr. Nettles today.  For those of you who have not been aware of his health condition, Dr. Nettles developed pneumonia shortly after the Spring semester ended.  As he began to get over the pneumonia, ulcers were found on his vocal chords which has severely affected his ability to speak.  Today he is going to a doctor to have a stroboscopy done.  Many of us have been impacted by Dr. Nettles through his classroom lectures, speaking engagements, books, and personal friendship.  I am asking that for you to join me in praying for Dr. Nettles today and continue to as the Lord leads.  I am specifically praying for God to touch his vocal chords and heal his throat.  One of the many things I have learned from Dr. Nettles both in doctrine and in practice is that he esteems the providence of God and is passionate man of prayer.

May our gracious Lord attend to the prayers of His people as we lift up our dear brother.  Thank you for praying.
