In light of Ravi Zacharias' dire cancer prognosis, Tim Tebow, Pastor Louie Giglio and Lecrae are asking Christians to share how Zacharias and his ministry have impacted them.

The three men posted a video on their social media channels, saying they had just spent time at Zacharias' bedside, telling him how much he meant to them. They then asked their followers to do the same by posting their heartfelt gratitude on social media with the hashtag #ThankYouRavi.

"Spent time today by Ravi's bedside today. In tears thanking him for the gift he's shared with us," Lecrae wrote on Instagram. "If @ravizacharias has impacted you like he has us take the time to let him know while he's here with us. #ThankYouRavi"

Zacharias and his family returned to their home in Atlanta after doctors told them his rare sarcoma cancer had worsened and that no further treatment options were available. The family said in a statement that they were going to take advantage of "whatever time the Lord gives" them together.

The staff at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries started the #ThankYouRavi trend Sunday, May 10, saying many people had shared stories, testimonies, reflections and letters for Ravi already. Now, they're encouraging people to share online with #ThankYouRavi. The team plans to share those messages with Zacharias and his family to encourage them through this difficult time.

#ThankYouRavi has already started to gain some traction online, with other Christian influencers sharing their heartfelt stories.

"Ravi, you're a hero of the faith and of mine. I have learned such an enormous amount from you, it's hard to put into words. Your humility, compassion, and brilliance have not only taught me, but my children. You have showed us how to boldly divide truth in the most graceful, loving way - a delicate balance not many people get right. Thank you for pursuing Jesus, loving well, and spending your life for Him. We know it has cost you and your family many times. We're honored to know you - our family has deep admiration and love for you. I've felt so sad since I heard about your diagnosis, so we are earnestly praying for your healing, despite what the doctors say. Praying also for Margie and your family."
