Bethel Church has launched a 24/7 prayer campaign for co-Pastor Beni Johnson, the wife of Pastor Bill Johnson, as she battles cancer. 

The Redding, California-based church posted an update on Beni's health to Instagram, asking believers to stand with them and pray for her, especially for her breathing.

"As many of you already know, Beni Johnson has been on a health journey of overcoming cancer. We've been praying consistently, and she has experienced a measure of breakthrough. Now we feel led by the Lord to invite you, the local and global Church, to join us in contending for her full physical healing," the church wrote. 

"Stand with us as we intentionally press in for victory for Beni, and sign up for a 15-minute prayer slot. Let's see prayer happen around the world—24 hours a day—during these coming weeks. Head to the link in our bio to sign up, and pray in faith that Beni will experience total victory!"
