Hank Hanegraaff, who is known as the “Bible Answer Man,” recently announced that he has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, yet he remains at peace, trusting God.

In a nearly eight-minute-long video, Hanegraaff discusses his diagnosis, but most of all tells his followers that he remains confident in God’s perfect plan and is praying for God’s Will to be accomplished.

Hanegraaff is battling mantle cell lymphoma. "This is a treatable cancer, but it is going to require aggressive chemotherapy," he told his followers, according to CBN News.

He said he would love if God would perform a miraculous healing on his body, and he is confident the Lord can do so, but "What I want most of all is that God will be glorified in my condition. In the midst of what I'm going through (that) I may be able to reach out and help others in their struggles," he said.

"Obviously finding that you have cancer is a blow to the solar plexus. It is a bitter pill to swallow. But all of that becomes very contextualized when you recognize that our dear Lord holds every breath and every moment of my life in His hand. The Bible is pretty plain about this," he continued.

Hanegraaff also asked for prayer for his ministry, that they would continue to reach many people for the Lord.
