Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham, is asking for prayers as she prepares to undergo surgery to fight cancer.

Lotz posted on her website on Tuesday that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. The diagnosis came exactly three years after another event that changed her life.

"On the afternoon of August 17, 2015, between 3:00 and 3:30, as you may know, I discovered my husband, Danny, unresponsive in our pool. Two days later he was Home! Three years to the day, on the afternoon of August 17, 2018, at the very same time of day…3:00 to 3:30…I was diagnosed with breast cancer," she wrote.

The time also coincided with some important biblical events that Lotz reflected on. "I heard the soft, gentle whisper of the Spirit, reminding me that it was on a Friday, during that very same time…between 3:00 and 3:30 in the afternoon…that God's Passover Lamb was sacrificed. Jesus died on the very same day of the week, at the very same time of the day, crushing the head of the serpent, forever defeating the devil and death. Praise God! The cross…the blood of God's Lamb…trumps anything the devil can throw at us or assign to us!"
