Dr. Mohler Has Eye SurgerySBTS Student, a friend of The Calvinist Flyswatter, forwarded an email to me from Southern Seminary saying that Dr. Albert Mohler had eye surgery yesterday, June 11.
I hope everyone will pray for Dr. Mohler. Perhaps God will use this time to not only heal him but also awaken him to the many problems at Southern Seminary.
FROM: President's Office [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Dear friends of Southern Seminary,
I write this morning to update you on the health of Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., and to bring before you a matter of prayer. As many of you know, for some years Dr. Mohler has struggled with eye issues pertaining to the cornea. Yesterday, Sunday, at 2:00 Dr. Mohler underwent corneal surgery at Duke University. Evidently the surgery was a success, and we thank the Lord for his gracious providence. However, the next several days will be difficult for Dr. Mohler.
This week Dr. Mohler is in Greensboro, North Carolina at the Southern Baptist Convention. Dr. Mohler daily has many responsibilities that are public in nature. The eye surgery complicates matters in two areas, and this is where we need your prayers. First, the surgery has left Dr. Mohler's vision greatly impaired. Second, the surgery has also left Dr. Mohler experiencing serious pain. Please join us in praying that the Lord would minimize both of these obstacles and enable Dr. Mohler to complete the tasks before him these next several days.
Thank you so much for standing with us in prayer.
Jason K. Allen
Executive Assistant to the President
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
