Christian apologist and author Nabeel Qureshi has undergone a surgery to remove his stomach as it had been bleeding for weeks. An Ex-Muslim, Nabeel was diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer last August.
In a Facebook post Saturday evening on his official page, the author of two New York bestsellers thanked all for prayers while seeking for more prayers.
The post which was made by Marie Wood, wife to Nabeel’s best friend David Wood, reads thus;
Dear friends! Thank you so much for your prayers and messages of encouragement. We are grateful to share that Nabeel’s surgery went well, and he is now recuperating. As he shared yesterday, due to bleeding issues, his entire stomach had to be removed. During the surgery, it was discovered that the J-tube placement was also causing an obstruction, so it has been repositioned. His post-operative pain is now, thankfully, under control.
Overall, his medical team is happy with his progress. He has begun practicing sitting in a chair, and it is possible he could be moved from the intensive care unit to the regular floor soon.
Please do keep Nabeel and his family in your prayers, just as you have been so faithfully and generously! Pray for the Lord to give him profound peace and relief to overcome any pangs of anxiety. Pray for ease of breathing and of sitting, so that Nabeel can transition out of the ICU and eventually back into the warmth and comfort of his own home with his dear family. Please continue lifting up Michelle and their precious daughter Ayah to the Lord, asking for the Holy Spirit to comfort and encourage their hearts and minds and to empower them as they continue to represent God’s blessings and love for Nabeel, providing hope and encouragement as great as every good gift which ultimately comes from Him. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
