As most of you have probably noticed, TSF Mike hasn't been posting too much on the forum lately.  I have been very concerned about him since the last time I talked to him on the phone and today I asked him in a PM if everything was OK.  His answered deeply saddened me and he asked me not to put it on the forum.  I am going to go against his wishes, as I think every member of this forum cares about him as much as I do and prayers are what he needs the most right now.  So, let's get the prayer bandwagon rolling and I would hope each and every one of you will say a prayer now and every day for our leader until he gets this thing whipped.  Here is his answer to my PM.

"Roy I am pretty sick.  I did not want the forum to know this as it casts a dark shadow over everything.  Owen is managing as much as he can and knows about me.  I am no longer in business, am disabled and on SSD.  I undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatment every day of the week and have done so now for over 8 weeks.  I'm about to begin the second stage of chemo which is even worse.

So tell everyone I'm hanging in there still and say a prayer or two for me as that has really helped."

I don't think it will cast a dark shadow Mike.  We all love you and care about you my friend.

Thanks for letting us know Roy.....

Mike, our prayers are with you!

The songwriters forum is more than a place to hang out, we are all family. You would do whatever you could to help anyone here, and have many times over. Now it is our turn to lift you up in prayer and offer our assistance in any way we are able to give.

Philippians 4:13 says

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

We will pray for your healing, for your receipt of strength during this time of personal struggle, and for you to have un-waivering faith in the final outcome of being completely healed and disease free.

GOD Bless you my friend!

Mike,

Keep your chin up!!! Just as you have attracted the love of every member on this wonderful forum that You created, you will attract a complete healing of this stumbling block you've encountered. Watch lots of funny movies, keep the faith, and maintain a healthy diet and you will beat this thing hands down. Our prayers will be with you everyday.

God Bless

Mike honey, I am so sorry to hear about your health.  Please know darilin' that I am lifting you up in prayer, even as i type this to you. I'm not sure if you'll even get a chance to read all these, but know this, you have a savior who loves you, who never wanted you to be sick, and in his word there is promises you can claim by the Blood of Jesus.  Please read Isaiah 53:5

By his wounds you are healed, claim his promise, stand true on his word, We Love you, and will continue to pray, have faith Mike.

Granny send her prayers as well.

Roy- thank you, even against his wishes, thank you.

Mike,

Hello my friend. Although I have not been on the forum much in the last year, I have thought of you a lot. I know that this is a difficult time for you and your family. This is one of the eternal questions that we have no answer for. Someday we will. The Bible teaches us that all things work together for good to those that love God and are called according to His purpose. Just keep your focus on the Lord. He will give you strength to get through this trial. I know, because He has done so much for me and my family.

I pray that you will be given peace and comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father is still the great physican and He has the final say. Look to His Holy Word for encouragement during this time of trial in your life.

You have been a great friend to me.....just a new, actually an old, aspiring songwriter. I have learned so much from your postings over the years. Many times I was back in the shadows gleaning from you and others in our group.

My word for you is to not give up. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Know that the Lord is with you even during these times when we ask "Lord...where are you...don't you know my suffering and pain". Be assured He does. Trust Him.

don

Psalm 91

Roy, thank you for going against the big guys' wishes and sharing this with all of us!   We all knew that something was wrong and suspected it might be his health.  Now that we know for sure we can get on the prayer bandwagon together...and I'm a firm believer that prayer can change things! 

Mike,  we love you and we're here for you!!!! If any of us can do anything to help you,  please don't hesitate to call on us.  You will be in our prayers continiously! 
We miss you very much.... and we will all be right here waiting when you have this ordeal behind you.  Hang in there, big guy!

Mike,

Hang in there bro.  We'll be thinking of you, and though we're hundreds of miles away in some cases, the folks on this board genuinely care about you and will be here if you need anything.  Hope you feel better soon.

Dear Mike, I hope you know how very much you mean to the people here. Even a relative "newbie" like me has been touched by your kindness, generosity, and encouragement. The fact that you've given so much of your time and energy while fighting this terrible illness lifts you even higher in my eyes.

You will be in my thoughts and prayers every day until this awful thing has been beaten.

If you all keep typing, I'll keep reading as it has been a source of inspiration to me.  I'm sorry that I can't stay online long, so it's just short visits for now.

I can't begin to tell you the magnificient wonders God has seen fit to bestow on this lowly servant and you are but one.

I'll keep checking and adding things as I am able so, yes, I am reading.

May the wonders of our Lord shine forth in the beauty of each day.

-Mike

You see Sam.  I told you he was checking on us. :)  Sam had mentioned that it was very difficult to go on with the forum like nothing has happened, but I told her, and I hope all of you will, we need to keep the forum alive and jumping until Mike gets back in the middle of things.  I know Mike will agree, this forum is his baby and we got to keep the baby burping.  So, let's all keep on keeping on and I have great faith Mike will soon be rejoining us.

I couldn't agree more.  The forum needs to keep going and carry on doing what it does best.  Being a source of sharing and joy to a lot of folks.  There are a lot here who are more active then myself, but I still think this is a great place to come around to so lets keep active folks!

James.
