Posted on 01/05/2007 6:55:11 PM PST by mkjessup
My FRiends, I would be very grateful for your prayers in behalf of my Dad whose health has taken a turn for the worse right after Thanksgiving, and even more so in the past few days. Dad is 81, a veteran of World War II in the Pacific Theatre, he served as a munitions expert, Browning Automatic rifleman, and finally as a medical corpsman before being wounded and sent home. He continued to serve our Nation in the Department of the Army his entire working career. He has been the finest Dad I could ask for and my life has been blessed by being his son. I have asked God what I believe my Dad would want me to ask, which is that God's Will be done. My own human desires and needs want to see my Dad restored completely to health and bounce out of his hospital bed, which would honestly require a miracle at this point. Dad is quite frankly suffering from old age, injured hip (did not require surgery), kidney infection, loss of appetite, one moment completely lucid, next moment, not quite so good. My Mom is holding up well all things considered, she and my Dad have been inseperable and happily married 53 years last month, I wish for them many more on this Earth, if that is part of God's Plan. I thank you and as my Dad would say, 'May the Lord be with you'.
Prayers being said for your father & family. ~~Pandora~~

mk, it is a privilege to pray for your dad and for God's blessing on him. I do so with gratitude.
As requested, it has been done.
Prayers up for your Dad, may he recover and have more time with you and your Mom.
Prayers for you and your Mom, as you wait to see what God has in mind....may God give you strength and comfort during this time.
mk, Prayers up for your father, and for you and your family.
Prayers for a miracle for your dad, and prayers for your family.
I know that feeling well. My prayers for your dad. My only advice to you, is what was given to me, when we found out my dear daddy was terminal. Do not let ANYTHING go unsaid. I would sit by his bed, and tell him over and over again how much I loved him, what a great dad he had been, and after he could hear me no more, begged him not to leave me. Selfish I know, as he is in a much better place now.
Hopefully, your dad will overcome this crisis, my Mom now is going through something similar. Strength be with you my friend, and to your entire family.
Your Dad has my prayers.
You are all in my prayers. I lost my dad (a WWII Normandy Vet) a little more than a year ago. He had been through so many health issues the last few years of his life that even though I did not want to lose him so soon, it was still a relief for me to see him finally at peace. It is difficult I know and I too didn't know what to pray for except God's will be done. God be with all of you.
Your Dad sounds like a wonderful man! Prayers of strength for your Mom and your family!
Prayers offered for your hero Dad.
