    Default My Dad

    Hey Everyone,

    A while ago, I asked for prayer concerning my father. My father isnít a believer, but thinks he is. Well, Iím still asking for prayer for his salvation, but my mother informed me this morning that his doctors believe he has prostate cancer. Please pray for my dad, and us too, as this has been a very sharp blow to me. The thought of my dad dying in his sin literally brings me to tears. Please pray that perhaps the Lord would be pleased to use this situation to bring my dad to Him.

    Love you all.

    I can relate brO. My dad is going today to get checked to see if he has prostate cancer and he's in the same boat as your dad, in regards to his belief, so I will keep you lifted.

    Thanks, sis. I don't think you meant to say your mom had prostate cancer, though. What kind of cancer did your mom have?

    Mike, please forgive me for laughing at your sentence above to Jolene.

    I'm praying for your dad. Pray for mine too. Same boat.....probably with one less oar.

    My dad went to the VA today for an appointment. The doctor said his PSA count is the lowest it's ever been, just a little over 6 and that there doesnt' appear to be any enlargement of the prostate. So, no cancer! I'm so very thankful to the Lord for this great news!

    Thanks to all for your encouragement and prayers. Please continue to pray for his salvation which is most important to me.

    This is good news! I will continue to pray. Has this situation brought your dad to any questions concerning Jesus? -- Praying for that as well!

    No, unfortunately. He thinks he knows Him already.

    Praise God for the good reports. However, the greater healing has yet to be had. Praying for his salvation...

    Some encouragement...My father grew up in a very abusive family in many ways. His father was a life long athiest/agnostic and very critical of Christianity, and my fathers commitment to it. My fathers whole family is split apart. Hardly anyone talks with anyone else, and my father was estranged from my Grandfather for years and years.

    However, upon getting word that my Grandfather had terminal cancer, my dad flew up to see him in the hospital. He was very surprised to see my dad. They reconnected, cried for forgiveness, and my Dad was able to share the gospel with him...and my grandfather wept more and received Christ with my dad leading him in to the way.

    It was amazing to hear my father tell the story. He visited him a couple more times before his passing, and continued to report such a great change in him.

    My encouragement is that the fragileness of life often demonstrates the humility of life. The futility of seeing ourselves as our own god. I know your dad seems to think he already knows God, and I trust your report that he does not. But I have found that in mans ultimate weakness, we discover just how weak we are. Not always, but it does happen. And this is a prime opportunity for the truth of Christ to replace the false sense of self assurance.

    I will be praying for your family.
