Please pray for my Father

By
Real Estate Agent with Gibbs Realty and Auction Company

Actually Grey is my Step Father of 34 years. He has always been a kind and gentle man with a great Faith in his makings. They just dont make them like they use to.

We got the news 3 weeks ago that he had Cancer in his liver and gallbladder. And now I must say we need your prayers. He is declining rapidly. I envy him of his time to meet our lord. I truly feel we are the ones dying and he is the one that will be living!

I may not be on Active Rain much in the upcoming weeks. I have family to take care of.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers in advance! And for all my clients please understand and leave a message.

Laura - It is my honor to pray for such a man, and to pray for your family that can watch the bittersweet event of his passing into the next life, save a healing.  We truely are the ones that lose, but thank the Lord in the grand scheme of things it is only a very short time of loss. I pray his legacy lives on to bless.

 I spent every day for 3 months with my Dad bouncing from his room to the ICU and hoping for a trip home....and then my Mother joined the ICU on another floor at the same time...I understand exactly where you are....it  will not be time you regret spending with him....and if people ask what they can do for you....and they probably have and will..TELL them....they will feel like they are helping and you will appreciate it...Like "I love your bla bla casserole"...I am so beat after a day at the hospital..I would appreciate that...or water the dog, cut the lawn....honest...and it makes you feel less stressed at a time when you don't need one more thing..our prayers are with you all.

Lord -we pray for Grey and his family. first that Your Will be done whether you choose to heal him or take him home. Second, give the doctors wisdom so that Grey may be in the least amount of pain possible. Third, that Grey and his family would take advantage of any Divine Appointments that result from this situation that may open up conversations about You and about how he and laura can be at peace about him coming to be with You in heaven. be with this family Lord, comfort them and give them You peace that surpasses all understanding. In jesus name we pray, Amen.

Laura - Thank God he didn't suffer is right. I pray your family finds hope in Jesus at this time, as deaths bring critical moments in peoples' lives.  My prayers are still with you.
