Henry Blackaby, best-selling author of "Experiencing God: Knowing And Doing The Will Of God," is gravelly ill. Richard Blackaby, his son, is requesting prayers for his father as he battles organ failure and heart issues. Henry Blackaby is 88 years-old.
Richard writes, "Dad took a turn for the worse last night. Heart rate dropped dramatically. He has not been eating well and his organs are in distress. Please pray his heart issues are resolved and he is able to eat more and regain his strength. We appreciate your prayers!"
