Posted on 02/02/2014 8:16:50 PM PST by floridavoter2
I just wanted to request some prayers for my dad who is dying of cancer. He is expected to pass this week. He's in his 60s and has been fighting this for about a year. It's hard to see him in these last moments, struggling to breathe and communicate.
I also feel so bad for my mom who is working hard to make him comfortable. Fortunately, there isn't much physical pain but I kind of wish he didn't know he's dying. I want this situation to be over, yet I don't want to see him go. Not like this. Anyway, any prayers for him, his soul and my mom would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
May the God of all Comfort be with your dad, your mom, your family and give them peace. May the Great Physician in Heaven give wisdom to the medical staff. Amen
Your family will be in my prayers tonight. May God ease your father’s suffering and the pain of losing him.
Prayers up bro
Prayers for your Dad. Love each other fiercely.
Lost my Father-in-law last year similarly. All I can say is be thankful for your Dad and that he will pass with little pain. God Bless you and may the Lord’s Peace descend on him and those around him in his room!
I’m very sorry your family is going through this right now.
I know it’s tough, and my heart goes out to each of you.
Life is wonderful in-between the pain. Just let your dad know how great he has been for you, and you can’t go wrong.
If there have been rough spots, ignore them. Remain positive and you’ll look back feeling good about how you said good-bye.
God willing, you’ll meet again.
I’m so sorry. I will include your dad and all of your family in my prayers.
support us all the day long of this troubled life,
until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed,
the fever of life is over and our work is done.
Then, Lord, in your mercy,
grant us a safe lodging,
and a holy rest,
and peace at the last,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Prayers lifting for your Dad, FRiend, and for you, your mom and family.
May God keep watch.
You certainly have my prayers. I lost my father in December to cancer. He suffered for over 2 years. It truly is unimaginable what you’re going through.
Jesus loves your father as he does every one of us. Peace and comfort to him and your entire family.
I went through the same thing a few years ago.
There is not a lot you can do except be there with him and for him.
I walked away from my experience knowing my Dad, myself, and my faith in The Lord much better. I am not going to say it was a “good” experience, but it’s made me a better man, a better father, and a better son.
God has blessed you with god parents. Honor them. I will pray for you all. It is hard. But you will make it. Trust your faith.
prayers up for all of you.
Very sorry for your dear dad and you and your family. Prayers that his suffering will be over soon. I know your suffering won’t be over. Prayers for you to be comforted and to heal. It is quite a trauma for all those that have loved him.
So young,prayers are with you floridavoter2 ((((Hugs))))
My mother was supposed to die from cancer twice. Sometimes it doesn’t happen. I will pray for you, though.
My FIL just died from cancer at the end of September 2013. He was only diagnosed early July. It was a blessing and horrible to have it happen so quickly.
Gospel According to John.
King James Version (KJV)
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again, and receive you unto Myself;
that where I am, there ye may be also.
So sorry. Prayers.
My heart is with you. It’s terrible to see your dad die from cancer. I lost my dad in December ‘95 to lung cancer. He was in a coma for the last 3 weeks, so I couldn’t even communicate with him. I hope he realized I was there. I miss him every day. So may G-d grant you and your family the strength to see your dad off on his final journey, and to heal your hearts when he’s gone.
Prayers for your dad’s peaceful passing to the next world and for you and your family as you deal with his passing.
My dad passed at 59 in 1977. I still miss seeing him but know that I will again.
Believers don’t need secular proof that life continues after this one but even agnostic scientists are coming to understand that we do go on. There are several EXCELLENT documentaries on Netflix featuring formerly skeptical physicians who no longer doubt.
They may help you in this difficult time.
Prayers up for all of you, FRiend.
Prayers for you and your mom.
Went through this with my mom and my father-in-law. I’m thankful my dad is in great health.
Be thanful you have your mom. I know your pain and will send prayers.
I am so sorry you have to go through this. Lost my father many years ago to Colon Cancer so I know how it is. Prayers for you and your family
It is so very hard to lose the people you love most. Be sure and tell him how much you love him and just be there for him and your mother.
May God give your entire family peace at this sorrowful time, and may He give your father the assurance about His love for him.
The over two years was the most difficult thing my family has been through. The most peaceful moment I had felt in a long time was when he had passed away. I knew that he went to be with our Lord.
Your father is in God’s hands.
I will pray for the ones left behind.
Prayers for your father, you and your family.
Your family is in our prayers.
May the Good Lord bring peace and comfort to your Dad and his loved ones.
Condolences to you and your family. I can imagine how hard that was having it go on for so long. I’m glad your dad is in a better place.
Praying for your father and your entire family. May God’s grace through our Lord Jesus be with you!
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Thank you everyone. I truly appreciate it. There have been many ups and downs with my dad over the years. He’s a very complicated guy to put it mildly and completely unchangeable. Too many of my memories are not good ones, to be honest. Yet, I’m not letting my feelings about past events affect this situation because none of us are perfect. He taught us kids our faith even if it wasn’t always lived out perfectly in his own life. So, for that faith I’m grateful. I just pray that his passing is peaceful and that he’ll be with God.
Thanks to all of you. God bless.
I watched my dad die of cancer (stomach) too, so I can empathize with exactly what you’re experiencing. Just be there for him and your mom. It sometimes doesn’t seem like much, but it’s more than you know.
Prayer and thoughts to you and yours.
Praying for your dad, you and your family. I lost my husband and best friend to cancer 20 months ago. I know I will see him again but it helps to know that I was there for him when he needed me most. Spend every second you can with him, do your best to keep him out of pain and never give up until The Lord calls him home.
All pass from this world in some fashion. This world isn’t the end of the story. It couldn’t be the end of the story if we wanted it to be, and sometimes we pretend really hard. It is a zone of testing, proving, and for all willing, entry to a road of guaranteed reconciliation with God. When one is armed with that attitude, physical death only becomes another door and not something to pretend away at all.
Have you looked at C. S. Lewis’ book “The Problem Of Pain”? In this case there may not be much actual pain, but it is still a distressing scene. This is not a long book and could be read in a couple of evenings. It can be had at most mass booksellers like Books-A-Million.
I got one of these for my mother and she looks forward to using it every day.
Prayers for you, your family and your father.
The farewell is poignant... we can’t deny that... but for those who have accepted God’s deliverance, it is by no means forever.
Death (or at least cessation of life in its existing form) is a must in this mortal coil, to belabor the obvious. We’re handicapped here, by sin.
It’s because God DIDN’T want to send people to hell, that we have the scene we see here now. The devil can harass here, but for people who accept God’s deliverance, the devil will not conquer.
I’m praying for you, your dad and your family tonight.
We can understand a lot, if not everything. The bible lays the story out. Some people get tangled up with human takes on religion (quite often entailing some kind of bullying spirit) and get the bible story warped, but that’s not God’s fault.
