Please pray for my father: disabled and depressed


#1

My father was disabled by an aneurysm several years ago, which affected the spinal cord and has left him with a spinal cord injury. He is tremendously depressed, and keeps telling my mom he just wants to die. He has no use of his hands or arms, can’t feed himself, can’t clean himself… He is on medication for depression but it is not helping. He becomes more and more depressed and is angry with the doctor for saving his life, is angry with God for being left helpless when he has been able to care for himself since he was a young child. He is without hope and is in despair. Any prayers for him (and my mom, who is at a loss as to what to do) would be welcomed. Thank you all so much!
