Actor and Christian singer Pat Boone is calling for prayers.

Boone’s wife of 65 years, Shirley, is reportedly in poor health, and Pat is asking for prayers as “doctors have given up” on her — but “Jesus hasn’t,” he said on Wednesday.

Suffering from vasculitis

Shirley is fighting a condition known as vasculitis, which can cause inflammation and clotting in the blood vessels.

The Boones were reportedly hoping for a miracle earlier this month, when they first asked for prayers with the help of family friend Shawn Bolz, an author and minister.

“We are rallying prayer for Shirley who was sent home by doctors two months ago for possible hospice,” Bolz said. “She has lived an amazing life with Pat and her children, grandchildren, and friends but she has [an] unfulfilled promise that she and all of us believe she has an opportunity to see.”

He added: “The good news is all of her organs including her lungs are working 100 percent and they are giving her tons of anti-inflammation medicine. She has a good chance and we are believing the push of prayer will help.”

The power of prayer

But things have apparently gotten worse.

“I asked Pat if I could send out a cry for prayer on his behalf and he said: ‘Please do! We are expecting miracles,'” Bolz said.

He went on: “So let everybody know the [doctors] have given up except for [hospice] care, not believing Shirley can recover — she’s on the way out — but we’re believing Dr. Jesus makes house calls, and we start every day in worship and communion with the One in whom all things consist.

“Like Paul who let the Corinthians know he thought he was going to die…and he let them know many could rejoice because God heard their prayers for his complete recovery! Let’s gang up on the devil,” he continued. “The very gates of Hell can’t defend against us!”

Bolz concluded by asking his followers to stand and pray for the Boones, particularly Shirley, who he said deserves to “see all of the days that God intended her to have on Earth.”

While the doctors may have given up on Shirley Boone ever recovering from the condition that plagues her, her beloved husband, family, and friends have not given up the fight just yet.

All we can do now is hope (and pray) for a miracle.
