The wife of Christian author Randy Alcorn passed away a week after he asked for prayers for his wife.
Randy is the author of the best-selling book Heaven: A Comprehensive Guide To Everything The Bible Says About Our Eternal Home. On March 22, he posted on Twitter to ask for prayers for his wife who is dying.
“A timely prayer request: on Saturday my wife Nanci told me she felt she didn’t have much time left in this world. This morning, 11 a.m. PT, my daughters and their families will all gather at our house,” he wrote.
In the spring of 2018, Nanci was diagnosed with colon cancer. Three years after the diagnosis, the couple announced that cancer has spread into her lungs. As her body felt weaker, she prepared herself to meet Jesus.
“Nanci’s ready to be with Jesus,” Randy continued. “But she wanted, and of course, I concur, to speak into the lives of our kids and especially our grandkids. I would deeply appreciate your prayers for her and for this unique and I suspect unforgettable family gathering.”
Nanci’s passing away
On his blog, Randy revealed that he doesn’t want to let go of her yet, however, he wants her to be with Jesus Christ.
“I simultaneously don’t want her to go, yet with all my heart, I DO want her to go into the arms of Jesus,” he said.
Earlier today, Randy announced that her wife has already gone to her eternal home with Jesus.
“Nanci is with Jesus,” he wrote on Twitter. “So happy for her. Sad for us. But the happiness for her triumphs over the sadness. Grieving is ahead, and it will be hard, but these last years and especially this last month have given us a headstart on the grieving process.”
Until her last breath, Nanci has always been dependent on the Lord.
“I am so proud of my wife for her dependence on Jesus and her absolute trust in the sovereign plan and love of God. Nanci is and always will be an inspiration to me.”
