PRAYER REQUEST …

[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.

    Cathy, i prayed as soon as i read your request, and will continue to pray.

    God, many times works in ways we cannot imagine, in how prayers for salvation are answered. A lot of people including my mom and myself, talked to my dad for years about his soul and need for Christ. It wasn’t that he refused to listen, it just appeared to never get through to him.

    Before he left this world a man showed up at my mom’s door one day, [dad was bed-ridden and could no longer talk by then] saying he was a Chaplin from the Veterans administration, asking if he could see dad.

    To make a long story short, he prayed with dad, leading him to repentance and to Christ. Mom, who stood in the background while this occurred said later she could sense the presence of the Spirit of God in that room, as she watched my dad, who could not speak, with tears of joy flowing down his face afterward.

    I don’t know why i felt to share that with you, except to say don’t give up praying. It may not even be you or Bill who leads your dad to Jesus, it could be someone else….or it could be no human, but the Holy Spirit working alone. We just don’t know.

    What we do know is God answers prayer and it is His will that all men be saved;

    “…This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” – 1 Tim 2: 3, 4

    Love you sister…
