Pastor Tony Evans thanked supporters for praying for his daughter, Priscilla Shirer, as she underwent surgery to remove a lobe in her left lung. He described the love shown to his family as a “glimpse at the Body of Christ in action.”

Shirer, whose mother, Lois Evans, died Dec. 30 from a rare form of cancer, revealed on Facebook last week that doctors would be removing an entire lobe of her left lung after discovering a nodule that contained some “dangerous irregularities.”

Ahead of her surgery, Shirer shared a video on Instagram showing Bible teacher Beth Moore at her house cleaning up for the “War Room” star after a family gathering.

“When you’ve had a few really tough weeks and you’re on the eve of a few more tough ones but then your people show up — cooking and cleaning and making a celebration out of thin air,” Shirer wrote.


On his Instagram account, Tony Evans, Shirer’s father and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas, re-posted his daughter’s photo. He captioned the image, “This IS a glimpse at the Body of Christ in action. Thank you for praying for Priscilla today.”

According to an update from Shirer’s husband, Jerry, the surgery “went well” and “doctors are pleased.”

“We are so grateful for your prayers,” he wrote on Facebook.
