A prayer for my dad-PLEASE READ:)

My father Joseph Goodrell Sr. is in terrible health and could use a little hope knowing that all of you are praying for him.

My dad is 53 and was dianosed with diabetis 15 years ago. His health has rapidly deteriorated over these past years. He also has heart disease. He has had 4 heart attacks,and 2 stent procedures to unblock arteries but opted out for open heart surgery, due to fear.My dads lungs rapidly fill up with fluid so it is sort of like he is drowning and each time this happens it is crippiling his heart. It has done it so bad that now his heart functions at 15%. We told my dad he would need to have this open heart surgery. When he met with the vascular doctor who would look at the arteries in his body for him to use,he found none that would be in a condition to use for my father. They also told my dad he is not a candidate for a transplant either. So he is basicly being sent home to us, to die. Please pray for my dad that he may get better.He has 5 children and 9 grandchildren 2 of his grandkids are infants.My father has been through so much with us.I need to feel like I am doing whatever I can to help him. Thank you.

This is my first visit to this website and my first response to a prayer request. It just leaped out at me, with great need when I saw it. I am going to say a prayer for you and your family. I know how hard it is to lose a parent as I lost my mother just 2 years ago to cancer. If you have found a doctor with a second opinion, then there is hope. God knows you love and want your father to get well. He is listening to your prayers and sends you comfort in his love I am sure.
I pray for you renee1976 that this circle of love with gods healing light will continue to surround you and your family, and bring you all comfort and also peace of mind. Jesus, lord, watch over this family and keep them safely in your hands and in your love. Protect them against any harm, danger or evil. Praise you lord for hearing this prayer. Amen
Much love,

Holy Father, God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, comfort this man in his hour of need; hear his prayer. Your will be done. Gather his loving family close to him so that he not be alone during this frightening time. Let him find You near him so he need not be afraid but joyful. Let his family know that all is not lost; God may be calling his lost lamb home for a reason. Diabetes is a wicked disease which aflicts me also. It scares me but I trust you, Lord, to care for me and to keep those side effects to a minimum by helping me to understand it is in my hands also.

God grant you the peace that passes all understanding, now and forever. I ask these things in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
