AndraeCrouch-webTwo recording artists, Andrae Crouch and Bob Bennett, are in need of prayer for significant health issues.

Pastor Crouch’s twin sister, Sandra Crouch, is requesting prayer for her brother, as he is experiencing serious health challenges. Messages may be sent by email to him at pastorandraecrouch@newchristmemorial.org.

Singer-songwriter Bennett also posted a message on his Facebook page asking for prayer.

”On Friday, June 20th, I'm scheduled for open heart surgery due to severe aortic stenosis as well as chronic atrial fibrillation.”

The artist known for songs such as “A Song About Baseball” and “Matters of the Heart” is requesting prayer “that I not only make it through the procedure, but also the expected difficult and risky recovery. I'll probably be mostly out of commission for a couple months. But I'm hopeful, if all goes well, to resume many of my normal activities during or after my third post-surgery month. However, it seems everyone's road to recovery is as unique as their fingerprints, and I'm told it can sometimes take a while to get fully past this.”

BobBennett-webBennett specifically asks for prayer for his wife, Elena, and three children.

“Remembering them on my behalf would mean a great deal to me,” he writes.
