If you've seen the movie END OF THE SPEAR, then you know the story of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, and the others who gave their very lives to reach an Amazonian tribe with the good news of Jesus.

For me as a parent, one of the most poignant elements of the movie involved Nate Saint's son, Steve.  That little boy is now grown up and has carried on his father's legacy of reaching the world for his Savior.  Today, Steve Saint needs our prayers.

This is posted at the "Joni and Friends" website:

Steve Saint is known around the world as one of the most passionate advocates for global missions. His father, Nate Saint, was one of the missionaries, along with Jim Elliott, who was killed by Auca Indians back in the 50's. Last week, our friend Steve suffered a serious spinal cord injury which has left him paralyzed from the neck down for now. Tomorrow on June 19 he will undergo surgery to stabilize the vertebrae in his neck. Please pray for skilled hands by the surgeon... and ask God to restore Steve!

Please pray for Steve Saint, the medical staff involved, and his friends and family. Also, please consider passing this prayer request on to your friends and family. You can share this link or you can go to the "Joni and Friends" website and you'll find a Facebook, Twitter, and Google + share option there.
