Pray for Benjamin Elliott

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — paulthinkingoutloud @ 8:46 am

Benjamin is an 18-year old who lives near London, Ontario, Canada who has been battling leukemia for most of the last year.    He and my son were in the same Sunday School class for a couple of years when they were four and five year olds, at the church where is father was the pastor.   He currently pastors in Stratford, Ontario.

Ben’s battle with this disease has been an extreme roller coaster ride both for him and his parents and family.   Yesterday, the news was not good.    Ben needs prayer.

You don’t know him.    But there’s a lot of you reading this every day.   If just some of you take a moment to ask God to do something special for this family, I believe we can make a difference.

If you’re on Facebook, you can learn more by going to “Prayer for Benjamin Elliott.”   There you’ll read the almost daily reports from a mother who is trusting and holding on to God, but is very much spent emotionally and physically.

I’ve never written a post like this on this blog.

Today, I couldn’t not write this.

Pray for Benjamin.


  1. Paul, please pass this on to him:

    Father I lift Benjamin up to you. Father you see his pain, his suffering and his fear. Please work a healing into his body even now. Strengthen him and encourage him today. Wrap Your arms of love around him and let him know he is loved!

    In Jesus Name,

  2. And Amen!!

    And Father, we lift Benjamin’s family to you as well. Support them in these difficult hours. Guide them with your wisdom and your love. Let Benjamin and all his family feel your presence, near and real, through these days.

    In Jesus’ most precious name.
