Eduard asks for prayer for his wife

In his call to JOY FM, Löwen spoke about finding joy and peace in the Lord amidst suffering. He shared that, while Jesus never promised an easy life, these trials are part of being transformed more into His image. Löwen drew parallels to the biblical story of Job, who praised God through immense suffering. This perspective has helped him and his wife to see God’s glory in their struggles. Löwen’s openness about his wife’s health battle and his request for prayers reflect his deep faith and reliance on the Christian community to help them navigate this challenging journey.

Will you, the JOY FM community, join us in praying for Eduard’s wife, Ilona?

Eduard Löwen Call:

As I already mentioned in the press conference that my wife has brain cancer. She had a surgery that thankfully went very well, but now she is in treatment and she’s doing well at the moment, which we are very thankful of. Obviously, we are praying for healing. We are praying for a miracle of God that he would completely heal her and completely kill the cancer.

I mean, in midst of the suffering, we are still rejoicing. We are still joyful in the Lord. We are peaceful in the Lord in the midst of this tough time because we know that Jesus never promised for us an easy life, and sometimes it comes with suffering and persecution. But his goal is to transform us more and more into the image of His son, which we are thankful for. And the Lord has used this time of suffering already in so many ways for some so beautiful things and glorified himself. And that’s also our approach and how we see it.

We don’t only ask out for healing, but we ask him to glorify himself in midst of all of that. And I mean, the best example is Job who had the ultimate suffering and still was rejoicing in God because, yes, he was also thanking God for all the tough times and not only for the blessings. And I think that’s oftentimes what we struggle with because we take the blessings thankfully, but not the hard times.
