Please pray for my dad. 🧘Mental/Physical Health 🏋🏼♂️
My 76 year old dad (my last living relative besides my kids) suffered a massive stroke Tuesday night. He’s now paralyzed on his left side and on life support. As much as I tried to warn him, he’s vaxxed. Booster 3 weeks ago. I have to make a decision to remove him from life support. I’m scared and sad. I don’t know what to do. I have no other family to help me through this. Just lost my husband last year, and my mom 7 months ago. I’d appreciate any prayer sent my way. I have Jesus in my life, I’ll be ok.
Thank you frens.
God, thank you for being with us right now. We confess that we don’t understand why things happen the way they do.
We don’t understand why illness comes into our lives, but we do know that you walk every path of life with us. I know that you are walking with us right now. Remind us that you love us, no matter what we go through. Give us strength as we care for our loved ones. God, we thank you that you never leave us, that you never forsake us, but you love us. We trust you, and pray in your name.
Amen, Lean on Jesus.
If he's suffering and nothing can be done, you are sending him to the Father. You will see him again. God be with you in this painful time. Consider yourself hugged and prayed for.
This is also my thought at the moment. My pastor, who I’m friends with said she’d come with me so I don’t have to do it alone. Thank you
That’s great to hear. God will supply you with all that you’ll need to get through this difficult time, and through life in general. All that’s needed is to ask. His hand is already extended for you. Thank you Father for Jesus. Thank you for the church Lord. I’m so happy you have Jesus in your life. I wish we could be there with you also.
I just went through the same with my dad. He was vaxed and boosted. Thought he was doing the right thing. Within an hour he was sick with dementia like symptoms and delusional thinking and behavior. That was in 2020. He got progressively worse and God answered my prayers on January 14th of this year and mercifully took him home. I love him and wanted better for him and now he’s in paradise. I’m praying for you that the Lord will guide and direct your steps. My heart goes out to you because the pain of what you’re going through is still very fresh in my mind too. Honey, you’re not alone. You’re one of millions who are or will go through this. It’s not easy at all but we’re here for you. You can dm me for support if you ever need me. We all here are if one mind and one heart and we’ll be here for you. God bless you in your hour of need and may He show mercy to you and your dad.
Heavenly Father shower Your heavenly peace on this child. Give her the strength to walk through this difficult journey & give her wisdom as she makes decisions this week & the upcoming months. Let her know You are with her, Lord. Give her good rest at night, do not allow the enemy to cause chaos in her mind so that she’s not battling any regrets, doubts or fears. Reassure her children as they see their mom going through this. Bless her, Lord, in every need that comes her way. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen. Hugs fren.
Dear fren, I understand your fear and indecision. I, too, had to make difficult decisions for both of my parents. Do not be rushed into a decision. Take time to fully understand and evaluate the situation. Realize that the doctors see your father as just another old person "who has lived a good long life and it's time to let him go." (I know -- been there, done that.) Now, take a deep breath and have a chat with God. He will help to guide your decision. Make sure you are at peace with whatever you decide. Ultimately, everything is in God's hands, fren. You are only human and will never be able to know everything you would like to know. Do the best you can for your father. That's all anyone can ask of you.
Praying for you and your father, fren. Let us know how things go. 🙏🏼 💜
I am sorry for your losses. I am 71 and I know I would not care to go on living in that condition. Living an life are two different things. I had to make the decision on my Dad also. He was always full of life and the life he would have had after his stroke would have been something he would not have wanted. We know there is a better time coming but it will be in another life. May God lead you and bless you in this time of trouble.
same sentiments here...had to make this decision a few years ago...remember this is not something you are doing TO him, but rather FOR him...ask yourself about the quality of life he would have/not have, want/not want, for himself in whatever conditions are the reality of his situation...you want to make the best right decision, to honor your father, ask God for his guidance in this...the right answer will be there...i have made it clear to my loved ones, if my vessel (body) is broken and no longer can continue it's intended purpose for life, it has served me well in my 70+ years, and please let my spirit go home, spare me the indignities of infirmity...prayers for peace in your heart, that you are doing the right thing for your beloved family...
You have had a lot of of loss recently. I'm so sorry for you. I'm glad you are leaning on Jesus. I know some people recently faced with a similar situation about life support. The husband got some good advice, imo. He was told that in order to live with his decision, he had to be 100% confident it was literally the only decision. That way, he wouldn't have any lingering doubts later and wonder, "Did I pull the plug too quickly?" etc. He looked at all factors, brain activity, organs (in failure or not) ability to breathe on one's own, and whatever other markers he knew to be significant in determining if his loved one was really still 'alive.' Perhaps doing so could help you make that decision as well, though I pray you won't have to. Praying for you, fren. God bless you.
Bless your Dad and ALL of you that love him!! Your Dad and you are in the loving embrace of a community that supports you!
Heavenly Father, your Word tells us that nothing can separate us from you. Call to USMC_Vet’s Dad so that he knows you are with him, that you love him, and that your son Jesus is his Lord & Savior because he took everyone’s sins upon himself and paid the price for those sins with his death on the cross so that we could be spotless before You & reunited with you. Holy Spirit, please work this faith in him or strengthen the faith he already has. Comfort all who love him with this faith. Please direct USMC_Vet in what they should do regarding healthcare decisions for this beloved Dad. I ask this in Jesus’ Holy name, Amen.
I'm so sorry you are going through this. I will pray for strength and clearness of mind in your difficult decisions. I pray for peace for you. I know this is hard, having had to make a decision like this not too long ago. God bless fren.
Blessings for you and your family.
Prayers for you and Dad Fren.
I am so sorry. God bless you and your family. Dear lord please deliver them from pain and suffering, and extend your grace to them.
Such an anguishing situation; we went thru something similar with my Mother. Prayers for wisdom, strength and peace
Ohhh, no. So very sorry you are going thru this. Prayers for you and yours.
May your father have the best outcome available and may you have love and support and the strength that you need. What a hard year you have had fren!
May God's presence be felt in your suffering. Godspeed to your father, who will be in God's care for eternity.
I am so sorry for you. I’m praying for you and your father. I have tears in my eyes reading this. I hope you find happiness and peace. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
I'm on the same path as you fren just a few steps behind. But the good news is Jesus is on the same path.
Praying for you and your dad. As alone as you might feel right now, the Lord is with you. He will strengthen you, and with His help, there’s nothing you can’t do. God bless you.
I'm terribly sorry. It is maddening. I feel it
Tough decision. Seek His will first and then lean on Him. His will be done. God bless you sister.
<3 Sending love and prayers.
Very sorry :(
Fear and sadness are normal. Trust in God's plan. Prayer sent
May God be with you through these difficult times.
This happened to my father as well. It was a difficult time. We removed him from life support when it was apparent, through testing, there was no brain activity. Praying for you.
Prayers for you and your immediate family from your extended family here. Though it is all we know, we also have the blessed knowledge that this life is but a moment in eternity. May He cover you all in His Grace and Comfort, and let you feel our best wishes and positive vibes hugging you close.
Prayers for you frend!! We are here for you!
Oh, wow! That is a heavy weight to carry!
Heavenly Father, we pray for our sister @Usmc_vet and her father. It's hard to go through everything she has gone through, and now she's dealing with a life and death decision. Send her comfort for the past losses and guide her decision concerning her father. We know You are the great Physician, and can choose to completely heal him. We ask You to make your will perfectly clear and to bring people around who love You to support her and stand with her during this time.
🙏 my uncle just had the same thing around October last year, stroke and paralyzed both legs. They found his aorta was torn in two places and the blood was leaking into is back. They put in a stint in and he started his therapy in November, not sure if he could walk again. My mom said he was at Christmas, using a walker, but walking 🙏
My prayers are with you, fren. 🙏 I hope your dad knows the Lord, too.
Thank you. He knows Jesus, yes.
Jesus be with USMC_vet today and give her wisdom peace and help. We know you are our Great Physician and we pray that if it’s not her dad’s time that your healing would come this day and that decision would be taken off the table. Thank you Jesus, amen.
May the Lord provide the comfort and strength you need to walk down this most difficult road. ❤️💔❤️
