This prayer was inspired while singing this worship song (below) during my week of practice before our worship team at my local church sung this for service this past Sunday (April 3rd 2016). Thank you God for your presence and for my worship leader (Jaci K.) at church choosing this song for this past service.

400 Students Gather Outside Cancer-Stricken Teacher’s Home to Sing By Nicole Pelletiere Sep 12, 2016, 2:55 PM ET abcnews.go.com
“..Hundreds of students serenaded their beloved teacher Mr. Ellis outside his home last week to show support during his fight with an aggressive cancer.
“It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” said Nate Morrow, headmaster at the school where Ellis works. “He is one of the kindest and intentionally loving people I’ve ever met in my life. I think that’s what really characterizes him. He’s always pursuing other people in wanting to get to know them and love them.”
Ben Ellis has been teaching Latin and Bible at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, Tennessee, since 2008. Last year, Ellis was diagnosed with cancer and began chemotherapy treatments, but that didn’t stop him from showing up for his students.
