Priya2“Which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:9-11)


What a humble privilege it’s been to see not only the outpouring of love for the Steiners through everyone’s faithful prayers, but the kindness of our Heavenly Father in answering those prayers so clearly and quickly.

We initially asked you to join us in praying for Priya around the clock through the month of April. You’ve done that, and we can’t thank you enough. With two rounds of chemo behind her, we praise God for his kindness and mercy to Priya so far.

Yet with several more cycles of chemo ahead of her, and Lord willing a surgery to remove the tumor, we encourage you all to continue in your prayers for Priya and the Steiner family through the month of May.  

There’s no need to sign up again (but if you need to change your time, or you’re otherwise unable to join us through May, you can indicate so in the form below).

To follow Priya’s progress or leave a note for the family, visit Priya’s CaringBridge page.



Join us in praying for Priya around the clock April 8, 2013

priyaIf you’ve found your way to this website, then most likely your heart is heavy with concern for a precious girl named Priya Steiner. A few days ago Priya was diagnosed with cancer, and for the next few weeks she’ll be undergoing an aggressive and potentially dangerous round of chemo therapy. During this time we’re inviting friends of the Steiners to lift this little girl before our Father’s throne around the clock, 24 hours a day. The God who knit Priya together in her mother’s womb is the same God who is powerful enough to bring healing and restoration to her body today.

If you are able to join us in praying daily for Priya around the clock through the rest of April, please check the list below for a vacant 15-minute slot, and then fill out the form at the bottom to sign up for one or more slots. We will update the list as frequently as possible as sign-ups come in.

For updates or to leave comments for the family, please visit Priya’s CaringBridge page.
