[My father left this earth on Sunday March 21, 2010. I want to thank all who prayed for him while he was alive. We as born again believers know that the dead no longer need our prayers. Again, thank you.]
If you are born again I would ask you to please keep my father and our family in prayer, and if possible add this prayer request to the other prayer requests at your church fellowship. My father is 93 years old and I do not perceive that he is born again. He is in a nursing home, and has recently begun to lose weight because he’s not eating as he should. The doctor plans to give him an appetite stimulant to see if that helps. A family member who does not know the Lord is the primary health care proxy. The issue of a feeding tube may arise shortly. As a Christian my conscience will not permit me to agree to the denial of a feeding tube for my father at this time. I know that the main health care proxy believes otherwise.
Please pray that the Lord will give my husband and I wisdom and grace in this situation and that the Lord’s will be done. Please pray for my father’s salvation. Though I realize that not all of our family members will be saved I also realize that all things are possible with the Lord. Above all please pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will be glorified in all of this. We have been doing Christian services for the residents at my father’s nursing home for several years now and have sown much gospel seed among the precious souls in this facility. Thank you.
