Please pray for my colleague at the university, M. She is a very well-known professor, a teacher most highly esteemed by her students and her peers. M. is in her early 50-s, like myself. She has 4 children, now all grown, and one of her children, a daughter, was a student of mine in 2006-2009 (now in a graduate school, but we keep in touch via Facebook).

About a year ago, M. suddenly began to lose weight. She has always been "on the lean side," but now she is like a lamppost: about 5'9" tall, she weighs perhaps less than 90 lbs. I am on a committee with her, meeting about once a month, so it struck me how incredibly thin she became.

Her daughter told me that M. does not seem to have any serious somatic illness. Her problem is, most likely, psychological: she just does not eat...

Your prayers will be much appreciated.

Love never fails.
