Christian artist, Phil Wickham, posted in a video blog yesterday that he is going to have surgery for vocal issues he's been dealing with. In the video Phil has obvious problems with his voice, and says that the operation will be on Monday. Consider praying for him as his surgery is on the 28th, at 12 P.M. Pacific. See the video below.
Wickham has struggled with his vocals and posted in a tweet on April 21 that he was going to have surgery on his vocal chord:
"Having surgery on my vocal chord next Monday. Spirit is high, and heart is thankful. Hopeful to get on the other side of this. Much love,
PW" - @philwickham
Faithful fans of Wickham's have shown lots of support on social media and have promised to pray for healing and direction during this rough time.
Wickham's latest album "The Ascension" was released last September and was followed up by a deluxe version which just came out April 15.
Slightly Obsessed #224: When the Pressure Feels Too Great
The fig I found in a local big box store had already been trimmed into a lovely miniature tree with an unusual trunk. Little did I understand what it takes to train a plant into a bonsai, and what that process would teach me about God.

Satan seeks to deceive us, divide us, and destroy us. His bag of tricks and sleight of hand are impressive but imaginary trapdoors to disillusionment. He constantly roams the earth in an insatiable search for humans to devour.
Slightly Obsessed #222: The Rain
Like the grass, the human heart has shallow roots and fades quickly in the dry season. But those shallow roots also are the first to taste the rain.
Slightly Obsessed #221: Are You Green and Sappy?
Being described as either green or sappy is not usually considered to be a compliment. But Irma lay claim to both, and it was her secret to a bountiful life.
Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness at His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
Slightly Obsessed #219: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 3
Job's soul had been stripped completely down to the dirt. His friends accused him; he defended himself vigorously. Lost in the cacophony was the voice of God. No one seemed to notice.
Except for one.
