A Letter from Max

Dear Friends,

I want to take a moment to share with you some personal medical news. Recently I was diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurysm. Because this is a serious condition, I wanted you to hear from me personally.

Though surgery is a possibility, none is planned at the moment. The current strategy is to wait, watch, and pray that the aneurysm doesn’t increase any further in size. I am maintaining my normal routines and commitments; my ministry is undisturbed by this news.

Here’s the good news: I feel fine. I am under the care of an outstanding medical team, and most of all, I am in the hands of a good God.

If there is other news to share, we will post updates at MaxLucado.com.

For now, please know that I am fully trusting our heavenly Father. I am grateful for your prayers for me and for my family.

God bless you, Max

Other ways you can pray for Max Lucado:

– Strength to continue the daily needs of his ministry.

– God’s guidance in health decisions.

– Knowing peace in the sovereignty of God for Max and his family.

Praying for you Max! My aunt is facing the same thing. Unfortunately for at this time surgery is not an option. We are believing God for her and for you and with you. She could use prayers especially since she is not a believer at this time. Love and prayers fo you Max!

God bless and keep you safe under His feathers. I always am reminded of “In The Grip of Grace” that I read once years ago that you wrote. I needed it so bad. I was on a church Board that preached little about the grace of God. I read the inside jacket that you wrote about the cloak at one of our ladies board meetings. I thought it was great. They sat there and just looked at me. 💟✝️

My husband had the same thing. He had surgery May of last year and is doing great. I found out it was much more common than I dreamed. We’re just thankful it was caught in an echo gram. Praying yours will not grow. My husband’s was a 4.8 and they wanted to go ahead and fix it.

My son at the age of 37 years old had surgery from this 4 years ago as well. He was fortunate to have felt in his spirit something was wrong. He went to ER and the kept him until they had an opening for surgery . his was only a 4cm, but on smart doctor really look at the CT scan and saw how thin his aerobic wall was where the aneurysm was located.
