Ok Cowboys nation, Michael Irvin needs your prayers.

On Tuesday evening, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, Michael Irvin shared some scary news. Apparently he's battling some throat issues. Back during football season, right after the Cowboys beat the Saints, Irvin lost his voice. After dealing with persistent throat problems, seeing several different doctors, ultimately the decision for a biopsy was made.

As you can imagine, Irvin is scared. He's seeking prayers and love, saying...

"Spent Sun & Mon in LA at UCLA medical Health (Ronald Reagan Hospital) doing health test. I would not usually do this but this I need to share. Growing up in the ghetto of Ft Lauderdale the one thing you have to conquer to get out is FEAR. I did! As a football player the no fear gift served me well as a blessing and an asset on the field but sometimes off the field it’s been a curse and a liability. This past football season after the @dallascowboys beat the @Saints i was so elated and hyped I lost my voice and the problem persisted for almost 2months. After visiting some of the best throat Doctors they thought it to be wise to take a deeper look at the situation. So we schedule and performed a throat biopsy. To give background I share with you that I loss my father at the young age of 51. He had throat cancer. This daemon has chased and vexed me deep in my spirit all my life. So saying I am afraid this time is a big big understatement. I AM TERRIFIED!! My Faith tells me whenever you face great fear you go to your greatness power. Mine is God. I am asking all who will. Could you please send up a prayer to help my family and I deal with whatever the results may be? Thanks for your thoughts and prayers in advance--------I will continue to pray for your fams protection and prosperity as well. May God Bless us all --------‬"

We love you Michael! We're thinking about you. We're praying for you and your family.
