Prayers Requested for Mollie Steenson

Mollie Steenson, 3ABN’s Vice President and General Manager, has been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in the bones and lungs. Although modern medicine currently offers no cure, we are highly encouraged that this condition can be contained through systemic treatment. Mollie is focusing on living well with cancer, rather than dying with cancer. She looks forward to returning to work and serving the Lord for many years to come.

3ABN President and CEO, Jim Gilley, says that the tremendous outpouring of love and prayers for Mollie from our worldwide audience has been amazing, and that 3ABN leadership and staff joined him in a day of prayer and fasting last Friday on her behalf.

“Although the doctors have said there is no cure, they do believe there is containment,” he says, “and as far as we’re concerned, containment until the Lord comes is a cure!

“Please continue to pray for Mollie,” he adds. “We miss her, and look forward to her return, soon!”

    I lift up in prayer to our merciful, almighty Lord, my sister-in-Christ, Mollie; knowing that the Lord has said to us "Fear not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes I will help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10.

  2. Kaaren Hall

    My prayers are with Mollie, that the Lord can use her through this illness to show the world how faith in the Lord's refining will surely ready us for Heaven. "Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him!" Job 13:15.

  3. Linda McBean

    Thank you for sharing. We will definitely be praying for Mollie.

  4. Debbie Morley

    Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. Ms Mollie has been a blessing to me and my faith walk with our LORD. I look forward to seeing her again in my livingroom!

  5. Reba Smith

    Mollie, I look forward to your beautiful smile and sweet voice, always with a positive attitude in God's promises. I believe that God can make good from this bad news, and I pray that you will soon be back continuing His great work at 3ABN. May God continue to bless you and Hal.

  6. Velma

    Mollie, we love you! Hang in with Jesus, and I am sure you are doing just that. He is the great healer. We will pray for that to happen for you. You are doing a great work, and keep it up!

  7. Ron Koenig

    The body knows how to heal. Give it the tools its needs through proper nutrition and cleansing and the cancer should not be growing.

  8. Dixie Konshak

    Precious Mollie has always been, and still is right in the middle of the will of our Great God. He has known her, and loved her forever, and His will for her life is perfect. Soon she will be back where she can continue the most important work of her life, helping to mend broken people all around this world. Also back home with her beloved Hal. I will continue to be in earnest prayer for my precious sister. Oh Lord, how we all long to be free from this world and it's pain. Soon!

  9. Donna Murray

    I learned of Mollie's condition yesterday, and have been praying for her healing. We know who the true healer is, and that is Jesus. Satan is attacking everybody and anybody; especially those faithful children of God. I would tell Mollie to hold on, because soon Satan's reign of terror is about to end. Praise God! Soon and very soon we are going to see The King.

  10. angie

    Dear Mollie, as mentioned in the news you are "living well with cancer." Psalm 34:4-7 says, "I prayed to The Lord and HE answered me, freeing me from all my fears. Those who look to HIM for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. I cried out to The Lord in my suffering, and HE heard me. HE set me free from all my fears. For the angel of the LORD guards all who fear HIM, and HE rescues them." I read this Psalm, and I keep it in my heart. May the peace of God govern your heart.

  11. Jeanette Hlumbane

    My prayers are with her, "Fear not thou worm Jacob,and ye men of Israel;I will help thee,saith the Lord and thy redeemer, the Holy one of Israel." Isaiah 41:14

  12. Faith

    I have been praying. God our Great Physician and Healer is ever near.
    It hurts, but God is good.
    I also pray for Hal Steenson, who is unable to be with her and Shelley Quinn, who is.

    "O Thou that hearest prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come."
    Psalm 65:2

  13. J. Jones

    Bless the LORD, O Mollie's soul, and all that is within her bless HIS holy name. Bless the LORD, O Mollie's soul, and forget not all HIS benefits: Who forgives all Mollie's iniquities; who heals all Mollie's diseases; who redeems your life from distruction; who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies;…I pray this prayer will bring you comfort, strength and encouragement!

  14. Beth Nelson

    We so enjoyed being in Mollie's Sabbath School class last July when we had the privilege of visiting 3ABN. Praying for courage and strength for both her and her husband. I'm listening to the ladies on 3ABN praying for Mollie right now and adding my prayers to theirs. Because of the unsettled weather the past few weeks here in Wisconsin, we weren't able to receive 3ABN the past several weeks, and are so glad to be able to see it again.

  15. Terri Marcell

    Given what you and Hal have and are being put through Mollie, Satan must really really hate what you are doing! May the good Lord bless and keep you both!

  16. Colleen Jeffries

    Soon and very soon we are going to see King Jesus! This is my hope for Mollie as she battles cancer. I pray that God will give her healing and bring her back to to 3ABN soon. I was so shocked when I heard that she was sick. She always looked so fresh and healthy on TV. I also pray for her husband Hal, as he is still recuperating from the car accident in March. May God bless them both and send them back to their ministering on 3ABN.

    God&'s grace and love to Mollie, Hal, and all of the 3ABN staff. We love you!

    Your sister in Christ,

    Colleen Jeffries

  17. Colleen Jeffries

    I want to add one more post. A prayer for Mollie and Hal.

    Dear heavenly Father, we come to You humbly asking You to heal Mollie and her husband Hal. We lift them up to You right now. We know they are in the best of hands, since they are Your children. Please place Your healing hands on both of them right now. We know You are the greatest Physician in the universe. Please be with them, and keep them under Your strong wings. We want to see You coming in the clouds of glory soon. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

  18. Debbie, The Donawas, The Georges, The Josephs

    James 5:16 says, "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

    We all are praying!

  19. Ed

    Mollie,my wife and I will be praying for the Lord to bless and keep you in His hands. We will miss you until your return. God bless you.

  20. sandy

    It is my plea with our dear Lord, that just as He healed Naaman with a simple act of faith, that He will do the same for you. GOD chose you for a mighty purpose, to lift up the hands of those leading out to proclaim the undiluted truth to the world. Our love for a sister in Christ flows your way.

  21. Nancy Morris

    True, this news is heartbreaking! Mollie's definitely a favorite! However, all the loving wonderful comments here have spoken to and encouraged me. Romans 8:28 once again. God is good and He is definitely close beside Mollie, loving and lifting her up! She reflects His character so beautifully!

  22. C. S. Lesko

    Mollie, remember the promises of Isaiah 43:1-2. Just as Christ was the fourth Man in the fire for the three Hebrews, He will be in the fires of life with you! May God's love and peace and strength surround you daily as you minister for Him, is our prayer.

  23. Volpiano

    Dear Mollie, I'm still in shock by the news. The 3ABN family has become part of millions of people's life who have found a closer relationship with our loving Creator. And that's the reason I feel personally affected. Even though I haven't had the privilege of getting to know you personally, I know how you and your husband were pivotal in the first steps of the creation of this vehicle started by Danny Shelton, but idealized by our loving Heavenly Father. I'll be praying for you! God bless.

  24. jeanne johnson

    Mollie you are like a friend, having invited you into our living room for so many years! We will now lift you up before our heavenly Father and ask for His mighty hand of healing on your behalf.
    May God bestow healing and strength as you continue to do His work.

    Jeanne Johnson

  25. Eric

    I want to thank you for being an inspiration to us, as in this difficult time for your family and yourself you are keeeping your head up, rather looking at our Lord and focusing on service instead of yourself. Speak of your unweavering devotion to our Lord even in the midst of trial, and I mean real trial.

  26. Chuck and Betty Morris

    Dear Molie, we are so sorry for this trial you are going through. Both you and Hal are a real blessing in your witnessing for our dear Lord.
    We pray that the Lord will lay His holy hands upon both you and Hal and restore you to your family at 3ABN and the viewing audience.
    We know that our dear Savior is coming soon with healing in His wings .
    God bless and be with you.

  27. Anna May

    You have been such a blessing to so many and we are sorry that you are going through this most difficult time, but we know that God will heal you, either now, or in Heaven. Our prayers are with you each day that God will keep His loving arms about you and bring you peace.

  28. Jan

    Our prayers are with you through this time, and we all know what a strong woman of God you are! You have been such a blessing and example to all who know you! "God is Faithful," and He is your source of strength and will see you through! I am blessed that our paths have crossed throughout the years!

  29. Deanna Sowers

    Mollie, I know that Jesus has His arms around you, for I know you have Jesus' love and strength. I have been, and will keep praying for you and Hal, for I know our Heavenly Father is listening.

  30. Earl Henry

    God is in the healing business. Jehovah Rapha! "God will heal." My prayers are for that wonderful human being who has dedicated her life to the service of God. May God continue to bless you and your husband. And remember, there is no testimony without a test. Blessings!

  31. Derek

    I offered a prayer to God for her to be healed according to the LORD's will and plan. I believe that there will be healing for her, and I trust that God is pleased with all of the saints' prayers.

  32. Rose

    Dear Mollie, we will be praying for the Lord to bless and keep you. Psalm 116 says, "I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications."

    God will Bless you.

  33. Jeanne

    I'm so sorry to hear about Mollie. My prayers are with her. But one thing for sure, my prayers are with her husband, too. For I'm sure he needs the strength of Jesus, as well. I know I sure did when my husband was sick with cancer. So my prayers are with them both. All the best Mollie, and get well soon.

  34. Diane and Vaughn

    Dear Mollie,

    How is your husband doing from the car accident? My heart was filled with such pain as they sent a urgent prayer request on your behalf, my sister in Christ. I have listened to 3ABN Radio, and now, at times can get 3ABN's TV programs. You will come through this medical journey with praise and honor to our Lord, because that's what I have always seen in you. I pray for you daily, and I pray our Lord will come soon. We are all waiting and ready to go home with Him. Love you all, dear family. Dianne and Vaughn in Tennessee

  35. Herb Kersten

    Dear Mollie, please know that the love of Jesus and the prayerful intercession of tens of thousands of your friends and fellow believers will uphold you. Prayer requests for your healing are on our Intercessory Prayer group on Facebook. You are also in my private prayers each hour of each day, and I do believe and expect a miracle from God's mighty hand. With much love, from your Australian friends!

  36. Gizelle W

    I only heard about Mollie very recently, and I was quite shocked at the news. My heart goes out to her and her family, and she will definitely be in my prayers. My family and I reside in London, and we have been avid viewers of 3ABN for the last 12 years. We have been greatly inspired, encouraged, and blessed by the wonderful work that Mollie and everyone else have been doing. Due to this, I would like to encourage her by reminding us of the wonderful health message that we have through the Spirit of Prophecy. Conventional medicine is dependent on drugs for treatment, but our Great Physician has given us the healing power of nature, which never fail. More and more people, both non-Christians and Christians alike, are turning to natural treatment for healing, and are being rewarded. I myself and other family members can give personal testimonies to this. Cancer has especially fallen prey to a raw, natural, alkaline, wholefoods diet. Plenty of pure water, lots of fresh vegetable and fruit juices, herbal medicine, and other forms of natural treatment, as required. I assure you that you will be blessed by the results. God desires for us to be His temple therefore we must be very careful what we put into our bodies. Therefore my Sister Mollie "I wish above all else thay you prosper and be in health." God bless you.

    Just found out about this, when looking for campmeeting schedule. Keeping Mollie and Hal in prayer for God's healing power, according to His great plan, and in His time. And also keeping 3ABN in prayer for workers to fill in the gaps while they recuperate. I pray for each one of you at 3ABN and ask God to strengthen you and provide for every need of yours according to His riches in Christ Jesus. We love you all.

  38. Roseleine Louis

    Hello Mollie,
    You do not know me, but I know you through 3ABN, and once at the Wisconsin women's retreat in 2005. You are a woman of faith. After I read yesterday about you, my heart was sad, but when I remember that Jesus has the control of our lives, I trust that He has a plan for you (a plan to prosper you). As I was praying with my kids before going to bed, we sang hymn #476: "Burdens are Lifted at Calvary," and I was thinking of you while singing. I hope you can sing it or have someone sing for you. It will bring you comfort.

    Be still, dear Sister, the Lord is on your side
    Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain
    Leave to thy God to order and provide
    In every change He faithful will remain
    Be still, dear sister, thy best, thy heavenly friend
    Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end

    Be still Mollie, thy God doth undertake
    To guide the future as He has the past
    Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake
    all now mysterious shall be bright at last
    Be still Mollie, the waves and winds still know
    His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below

    Be still Mollie, the hour is hastening on
    When we shall be forever with the Lord
    When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
    Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored
    Be still Mollie, when change and tears are past,
    All safe and blessed we shall meet at last

    with much love in Christ,

  39. Georgia Miller

    I was so saddened by the news of Mollie's illness. Jesus is the great Healer, and I believe with all our prayers, Mollie will be healed.

    I have been praying for you Mollie, for your healing, and your good health. If you can live well with cancer until Jesus comes, then we will all be blessed. You are surrounded by friends and people who love you and lift you up. Lean on Jesus.

    God bless you.

  40. Marty Kautzman

    I thank God that we don't rely on doctors who say there is no cure. We rely on The Great Physician who heals ALL our diseases (Psalm 103:3). I will be praying for that healing for you, Mollie.

  41. Al Swilling

    Will continue to pray for Mollie's healing, and that our Creator's will be done, realizing that He has His own time frame, and that His time frame, and reasons why, are not always the same as our own. We humans are an impatient lot. Minutes sometimes seem like hours, and days like months. Our Creator will work according to His time frame, and in a way that will ultimately be a blessing to all. Still, He promises that whenever two or more are in agreement about a thing and pray with one accord, having faith in Him, He will hear and answer our prayers. I claim those promises for Mollie Steenson in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, so that the Father and the Son will be glorified through her healing. Amen.

  42. Marguerite Roberts

    Dear Mollie, you do not know me, but I've been watching 3ABN for over three years. Now I have to watch on my PC, but I thank the Lord for that blessing. The Lord has said, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee, be not dismayed, for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee, yea I will help thee, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41:10. I did not know about your condition until I got on my PC this evening. You are placed on my prayer list for continued prayer with Divine Healing from the Holy One of heaven. You are such a wonderful Christian and God will work in your life because you love Him so much! God bless you and keep you, and my His Light shine on you and keep you in perfect peace.

  43. kk

    I know that there have been so many prayer requests on behalf of Sister Mollie, but let me add mine to the rest of them. I pray that even though the enemy wants this illness to be for bad, I know that God is in control of this situation. So Mollie & Hal, in the words of Jim Gilley, "Keep on keeping on with Jesus." May God continue to bless His people with divine favor until He comes again! Amen.

  44. Jake & Kim Akers

    We think a lot of Sister Mollie and Brother Hal, though we have never met. They have really helped us through their work for the LORD. Our sister is in the best of hands——JESUS.He will do His will in our lives, and His will will be done in this. As Moses once said "Stand and see the glory of God." Praying for them both, and our love goes out to them both.


    Jesus is the Great Doctor. There are no sicknesses He can't cure. We are to trust and believe. He did it before. He will do it again. Our prayers are with you, Mollie. Just keep the faith.

  46. Clarion Davis

    Dearest Mollie, we are definitely praying for the Great Physician's mighty touch. Do have a good night. He will strengthen you as together we uphold you to HIM.


  47. Virgil and Allyce Mayer

    We continue to pray daily for Mollie and her husband. God Bless them both, and all at 3ABN

  48. Rae

    Someone wrote this prayer and I thought it was worthy of repeating, over and over again:

    Dear heavenly Father, we come to You humbly asking You to heal Mollie and her husband Hal. We lift them up to You right now. We know they are in the best of hands, since they are Your children. Please place Your healing hands on both of them right now. We know You are the greatest Physician in the universe. Please be with them, and keep them under Your strong wings. We want to see You, Jesus, coming in the clouds of glory soon. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

    Get well soon Mollie!
