Praise / Update: Best-selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado has shared an update on his health crisis, crediting God’s “hand of grace” for reducing the size of his aneurysm. The 66-year-old made the announcement in a YouTube video, revealing that the good news was “surprising and unexpected.”

“It certainly seemed that surgery was going to be a part of my future. After undergoing a couple of more tests however, just a few days ago we were given some surprising and unexpected news,” Lucado explained. “The measurement of my aneurysm has actually diminished. No one saw this coming! The medical team credits a more precise test, and they very well may be correct. But I want to credit a good God who, in this case, is choosing to keep a hand of grace around the aneurysm. The bulge is actually reduced to the point that I don’t even have to go back to the doctor for a year.”

*Thank you for continually praying!
