James P.

My dad is in the hospital dying of terminal cancer.

My dad has been in the intensive care unit in a Florida hospital for over 30 days now. He is dying of terminal cancer. Although he knows this, he still has maintained his sense of humor. He is such a wonderful person and at only 64 years old, way too young to die. Please pray for him. He is on a ventilator but still communicates through pen and paper. He wants to go home so bad but they are unable to let him because of the ventilator. I hope he dies peacefully and before we have to make the decision to turn off his ventilator which is what they are pressuring us to do even though he is still coherent. His mind is still in tact just not his body. It is unfair for us to be put in this situation. I pray for a miracle.

I know that God's will is always active in our lives. I know that God is right where James and his family are, and the blessings are known in each of their hearts. The body is only a visible instrument for the spirit that is connecting each and everyone with James, and the love is healing each and every one in the way that God desires.

When or if you must make that decision you will KNOW, and your father will let you KNOW. Both of my parents have gone to their eternal home. I had to fight, and stand-up for my mothers "Living Will". My Dad was a no-code. You will get through this, and more strength than you ever thought possible!!!

May the Lord give you peace, comfort, and guidence in your time of need. All things are possible through Him. I will be praying and meditating in the spirit for you and your family. I,too, lost my dad at the early age of 62. After a few years I realized it wasn't the shortness of life, but the years that we had together that counted. God Bless!!

Dying is the last stage of life, we will all have to go through it, birth was also painful but we forgot. The most important thing is that your Dad's spirit is up and that is a sign that he is ready and that he knows that the Lord is waiting with open arms, his passing will be aided by angels and his spirit will soar up to heaven, you should be strong for him, pray by his bedside and tell him that is ok to go with the Lord whenever he is ready. Sometimes we are not ready to let go and that may keep a love one hanging on for us, tell him you love him that he is a great dad and that you know that the Lord is waiting for him and that you understand that we are here only for a while but that our place is with the Lord. Tell him that he will soon be in a peaceful beautiful place full of light where the Lord and the angels are waiting for him, that he will not remember the pain he is going through now. May the Lord surround your father with his love and take him in his arms and may your father feel His peace and be able to let go of his ailing body easily and effortlessly. May you and your loved ones left behind be able to let go of him with a loving heart! I am a nurse and a great believer in the soul and in God. I will be praying for you and your dad. Clarissa

Jesus please come down and touch James P and perform a miracle, either heal his body or let him go to sleep and come into your arms so the family will not have to make that decision. I ask in Jesus name Amen.
Whenever He would go, into the villages, towns, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged Him that they might touch just the tassel of his robe. And everyone who touched it was made well.
Matthew 6:56
