Dear Praying Medic,
Today is my precious father’s birthday! I am joyful past the rooftops and I am forever grateful to God for His goodness to my father and to us his family. When I called him, he had no idea it was today because he sometimes loses track of what day it is. Being indoors all day, all night can do that to a person. Nevertheless, he was immediately excited and loud when he learnt what today was.
I wished him a Happy Birthday several times and told him how proud I am that he is my father and how proud of him I am. I blessed him and he blessed me even more. Trying to kick him out of feeling bad that he had forgotten his own birthday, I reminded him of how the same thing had happened to me back in high school when he was an employee of the same school. I had been writing my end of term exams and had completely forgotten that the date I had actually written on all my answer sheets was my own birthday. Daddy called me later after my paper, and when he announced Happy Birthday, I asked, “What? What is today’s date?!” it made him laugh to remember that day.
A while ago, I sent you a message on Facebook Messenger telling you about my father. I had watched and listened to you on Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural and for some reason, I felt encouraged to contact you and ask for your help to labor in prayer with me for my father. I wrote,
“Mr Dave Hayes, I am thankful to God that I am watching you on Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural. Praise God!
Since the beginning of last year, both my parents fell seriously sick with several health conditions. Mother went home to be with the Lord this year in January after battling diabetes, pneumonia, anemia, and an unexplained extremely rapid blood loss.
After her burial, I have had to move to my auntie’s house in another city where my Dad is being taken care of. My dad was so sick that he could not attend Mum’s funeral. Dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer and a liver problem. The cancer is stage 4. He is diabetic and asthmatic as well. I sit by him and take care of him all day and most of the night. The pain he goes through makes him cry a lot. He sings and prays as well. I do same all the time. I stand by him with no idea how to help him with the pain. Many times, it seems morphine doesn’t help. Now his ears seem infected somehow so he doesn’t hear when we talk to him or when I read God’s word to him. He can’t walk without clutches.
We need God now more than ever to save and rescue us. I put all my plans on hold because I had to take care of them and I gladly did so. After Mum’s call to glory, it seems nothing really has changed. I have faith in our healing God and so does Dad.
Mr Hayes, would you kindly pray for my Dad? We would be so grateful.
You very kindly replied and assured me of your help in prayer. I remain grateful for that. Just as I sought your help in prayer, I did same from my friends who have been graciously helpful in this wise for my father and I am grateful for them as well.
Since we have been praying, the Lord has been hearing us and working for us, in us and through us. I cannot begin to tell you how mightily grateful I am to the Lord for His mighty doings.
Then an idea hit me; to use my blog to witness the work of our Healing God in my father’s life so that others going through similar challenges in their lives will find hope in God to hold on one more time.
Thank you for accepting to be part of God’s miracle story in the life of my family. God bless you.
For His Glory,
