The Power of Prayer

Thanks for your prayers -- Dad is much better! He seemed to bottom out in the wee hours of Monday morning, and then started slowly rebounding. By Wednesday evening the ventilator was removed and Dad was breathing all on his own again.

The nurse said this morning they will be getting him up out of bed and starting to let him eat today. Don't stop praying yet!


God shapes the world by prayer.
The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be,
the mightier the forces against evil....
(E.M.Bounds).
UPDATE January 19: Dad continues to improve and has moved from the critical care unti to a private room. He still needs lost of rest and healing, but Praise the Lord!

OOOh do not fear. Your day will continue on. My husband has been in the same position a number of times and has rallied every time. I think God is testing your Dad, my husband you and me. He is knocking on our door reminding us that He is there and that we still have work to do and we need to APPRECIATE EVERY MOMENT WE HAVE ON THIS earth. God bless you and your Dad.
With all good wishes,
Pat
