 Re:

Thank you all for your prayers!
mama: I will be with my father this Friday. I am planning on staying three weeks, the Lord willing.

I am apprehensive, knowing how much rests on this visit. I keep saying to myself that it is not I but the Lord who will do the work, but I also know that I have messed things up so many times before! I pray that the Lord can use even my mistakes to bring my parents to the knowledge of Christ and that I will recognize and follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

 Re:

I trust and pray your time with your dad will be profitable for all.

I have a friend whose brother was terminally ill but was banned by her non-Christian parents from speaking to him. So they prayed. Well, God is bigger then any human imposed ban: the LORD appeared to him, revealed Himself to him and he came to the LORD. :-)

 Re:

Oh, I almost missed this! I HAVE been praying but thought you had probably visited by now....I will SURELY be praying over the next 3 weeks. I will pray that nothing will get in the way of your hearing from the Holy Spirit on when to speak and when to remain silent. And may the love of Jesus shine from your life :) God bless you!!!

 Re:

Thanks for all your prayers. I know that God is doing a work in the life of my Dad. Three months ago he could barely speak and slept most of the day. Since you have begun praying he is speaking and writing almost as before. I have to believe that this is God's mercy on my Dad, giving him one more chance to receive the gospel. Please do continue to pray for him.
I think of you often mama. I know that you are having difficulty with your prodigals and pray that God's work in their lives will soon become manifest. God is always working, even though we cannot see it. I know that it is difficult to watch them destroy their lives. But God is at work, never forget.
In Christ,
romanchog

 Re:

Thank you for your kind words, Romanchog....this is not the place for "me" but I have no other way to get in touch with you. It is my oldest daughter's birthday today - my prodigals were too busy with their selfishness to be here to help her celebrate. She has given MUCH, MUCH love and sacrifice for them....breaks my heart...I am still gathering my thoughts and will post one day on what God is teaching me thru this great grief...in the meantime I continue to pray and trust that He is indeed working.

Blessings on your trip.....so glad to hear of your dad's improvement. God is merciful....I will be praying!!

 Re:

I am at my parents house and have been here for 5 days. My father is much worse than I expected. From what I can see he only has a few months left to live, though of course I can be wrong. He will be alive for as long as God wants him to be.

My father sleeps most of the day. He is desperate to die. As I have said before, he is a member of a non-Christian cult (the cult comes out of Islam). There is no belief in heaven or hell, simply an afterlife. He is looking forward to seeing his parents and other loved ones. Oh how my heart cries out to him. I have not found opportunity to tell him of Christ. It would be difficult for him to hear the gospel,it would anger him, and in his nature he would shut me out and perhaps ask me to be quiet. I am asking the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit to remove all of the things which blind my father and mother from the truth of the gospel. I don't know how to approach it and cry out to God for wisdom and for my flesh to be dead so that I can reach my parents.

Thank all for your prayers. I also ask for prayer for Neil's mother who is in a similar situation. (You may look on the forum for the details of his request).

mama: I am glad to hear about you. My e-mail is listed in my profile if you want to contact me.

 Re: Prayer please

Hi, i need to know your father's first name so i can pray for him. It would be helpful also if i could have your first name, but i will understand if you don't want to give your name.

 Re:

I understand so well what you experience. I was just at my Mom's this past Sunday, trying AGAIN to share about Jesus (thru Alzheimers)....to no avail. I have been holding you up in prayer and will continue. PLEASE try to rest in the knowledge that it is only God Who can save your dad. Your heart full of love for him, and your sense of urgency are a beautiful thing. I am praying that you will be very sensitive to the Holy Spirit's promptings....please feel our care for you over the miles :)

==ROMANCHOG




Then don't tell him the Gospel (just yet). Instead, ask him to tell you HIS beliefs; ask him to describe to you this "afterlife" he believes in and what proof he has of it or what he bases it on. Sometimes when people are put on the spot and have to ask THEMSELVES questions about their beliefs and where they got them sometimes they finally start to question themselves. In any case, showing a respect for HIS believes might open the door to him asking you about your's. This is just an idea. You may have done ALL this already a long time ago. My basic point is just to focus on asking questions rather than on making statements, since they are so hardheaded, proud, and angry. My heart goes out to you, as my relatives are all the same way.
