Today on social media, Luke Smallbone of for KING & COUNTRY requested prayer. He shared that he would be going into surgery this morning for a vocal cord issue.
"As you might remember, last year I requested prayer for a vocal cord issue. After going on voice rest and a good bit of therapy, most of the issues seemed to clear up... But sadly just a few weeks ago, while working on new music, the concerns and issues all came back," Luke posted. "I booked another consultation with my doctor, and we have decided that the best path to singing and performing at full strength again is surgery."
Luke continued saying, "Many of you have asked me, 'can this procedure go wrong? What if you can't sing anymore?' For one, that's statistically very unlikely. But secondly and more importantly, I wholeheartedly trust that God wants and knows what's best for me and my family. Faith seems less required when life is 'certain,' but it is a must when our circumstances, relationships, or health are unsure. So in the uncertainty of today, I'm practicing faith in Jesus."
UPDATE: Luke's brother Joel shared an update on his Instagram story saying, "Thrilled to share that the procedure went incredibly well. He might be a bit sleepy with a sore throat and a numb tongue, but his spirits are high and he's home. Thank you for your prayers."
