Kathy Keller, the wife of pastor and Christian author Tim Keller shared a new health update on social media requesting prayer for her husband after he suffered “complications” from his recent cancer treatment.

In March, the 72-year-old announced he would be undergoing immunotherapy after new tumors developed in his three-year battle against stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Keller was initially diagnosed in May 2020 and recently told his followers that prior treatment “was successful in eradicating 99% of the tumors,” but that new ones developed.

“Tim is out of the hospital and recovering at home after complications from his treatment. Please continue to pray during this slow recovery,” she wrote.

Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, and his wife are putting their trust in God and have approached each obstacle through the lens of prayer.

As CBN’s Faithwire has reported, Keller told his followers that his ongoing battle with cancer has driven him and his wife, Kathy, “to seek God’s face as we never [have] before.”

“He is giving us more of his sensed presence, more freedom from our besetting sins, more dependence on his Word—things that we had sought for years, but only under these circumstances are we finding them.”
