Here's a new prayer request: pray that he would talk. He appears to be trying, but he just can't get it all together to pull it off. He can make noise, though we haven't heard that in a while, either. Pray that he would make noise with his voice. Pray that he would begin to say words. In fact, pray that one day he could sing and worship again.
Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.
Awake, [Ian], and sing of Him who died for thee!
