Mark Hall, lead singer of Casting Crowns is battling cancer and took it to social media with a message of prayer.
Mark Hall said, "I would appreciate your prayers. Doctors found a solid mass in my right kidney about a week ago. They are 90% sure it's cancer and they are going to remove the entire kidney next Wednesday, March 11th. They believe the cancer is contained in the kidney, which is also a great hope. They will know more once it is out and Pathology can see it. I'll be in recovery for a month or a little longer because of the surgery. Please pray for healing and for God's peace for my family."
The group's page was immediately flooded with messages and prayers for healing. Also friends of CC started hash tags and memes to spread the word for prayer.
Michael W. Smith, Christian music pioneer, took to social media as well to plead for prayers. He wrote, "Would you please join me in praying for my good friend, Mark Hall is in a battle with cancer. Praying with great faith for a complete healing!"
