Prayer for Piper

Mark Driscoll blogs about the Gospel Coalition conference, which gets underway today. He also mentions a meeting we had last night. For the purpose of soliciting your earnest prayers for Piper--for Spirit-filled, gospel-driven, Christ-centered, biblically based faithfulness, accuracy, energy, efficiently, and insight during the last leg of his writing leave--here's an excerpt from Driscoll's post:
Dr. Piper explained that he was in the midst of finishing his latest book which will critically examine N.T. Wright’s new perspective on the doctrine of justification. He said the project has required an enormous amount of research and is proving to be an intense book to write. To make matters more difficult, his computer crashed which cost him a few days of work. Next Tuesday he will begin the final week of writing the manuscript and selecting a title. I asked Dr. Piper if he would mind if I got the word out to those of us who have appreciated his work that May 29th through June 5th would be a strategic time to intercede for him in prayer. He said he would appreciate prayers as he believes this book is very important for the defense and articulation of the gospel of Jesus Christ and has come with some indications of spiritual warfare. So, on behalf of Dr. Piper, your intercession during his upcoming writing days would be greatly appreciated.
