The last several months have been a battle in more ways than one. Not only has Joey Feek been battling Stage IV cancer, but her body stopped responding to the treatments. Now, both Joey + Rory, are battling emotions while trying to cope with the news.
Their choice to stop any further treatment and return home “not to die, but to live” is an incredibly hard choice to make. While Joey has been home, Rory has continued to post on his blog about their triumphs and trials they have crossed this far in life.
“So, even though we know we’ve reached the end of what medicine can do – and while we prepare for what God has put in front of us…Joey and I will continue to pray for a miracle…”
Perhaps that miracle is going to happen tonight…..
Set for 8:00 CST tonight, November 5th, a worldwide prayer vigil is being held in honor of Joey Feek to help her overcome not only this disease, but peace in her heart.
Rory Feek took to his blog talking about the vigil. “But please, one thing I ask… don’t just pray that Joey is healed. Yes, pray for a miracle. But also pray for peace in her heart, and ours, if God chooses not to let this cup pass from her sweet lips.”
Posted to Joey+Rory’s Facebook page, an image of Joey gripping hands with a loved one shows them holding tight to one another. A small bracelet around Joey’s friend’s wrist reads: “GOD’S GOT THIS”.
Let us all join in for the vigil tonight, whether it be a moment of silence or a desperate prayer, think of Joey and all those close to her.
Joey Feek – you continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
