Please pray for my dad; on the verge of kidney failure


#1

As the title suggests, my dad, who is in poor health, is very close to kidney failure according to recent tests. His cholesterol levels and AC1 are both out of control, as well. He is also a type 2 diabetic, has heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Back in 1998, he had a massive heart attack and his heart stopped 4 times on the helicopter on the way to the university hospital, and with these recent blood tests, I am very worried that he may have another heart attack or some other serious health crisis. He hasn’t been taking care of his health (mainly eating right and checking blood sugars, except when I “nag” him). Both of my grandmothers died earlier this year, and I am really worried that I might lose him, too.

Please pray that his recent medication changes will help him come into better health, and that this recent scare will be enough for him to start taking better care of himself.


#2

Father, in Jesus’ name, please powerfully inspire this loved Dad to take practical care of his health and faithfully do what is necessary to improve and maintain his health. Please help him to respect the gift of himself that You have given him, and to honour the love that his child has for him by taking good care of his health.

I’ll keep your Dad in my prayers.
A hug.


#3

Thank you, Trishie! I really needed a hug, and of course, my dad really needs prayers!

Dear DT,
May our dear Lord Jesus bless your dad & give you & your family peace & strength in these difficult times.
Love in Christ,
Agatina

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee do I come, before thee I kneel, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy
hear and answer them. Amen.
- St. Bernard of Clairvaux

I want to thank everyone SO MUCH for their prayers for my father. I don’t yet know the results of his most recent tests, but he does have a doctor’s appointment on Monday. I think he was able to work today (he’s a mail carrier) and am hopeful that’s a good sign. I am also hopeful that the seemingly turtle’s pace the doctor is taking, as far as getting back test results, is a good sign as well.

Again, thanks so much everyone for your prayers, and I beseech further prayers for him and my whole family.
