Default Prayer request

It’s my time to ask.

My Dad has gone on hospice as of yesterday. He has had multiple strokes and the end is near. He has had a pretty rough go for the last 5 years with almost no quality of life.
I have a ton of great memories of him taking me hunting and fishing on the Kenedy Ranch and Baffin Bay. I’ve been really blessed.

I just want his suffering to end peacefully.

Thanks

Lord, we ask You for mercy and kindness as You take this one home. Ease his pain and suffering and heal him by taking him out of this world and into eternal rest. Comfort the family as they mourn the loss of their loved one, but show them how to rejoice in his homecoming healing. Take care of this one Lord, in the powerful name of Jesus our Savior we pray, Amen.

Thank you Lord for relationships, both ours on earth and our fellowship with You. Lord please grant mercy for this family so that they may rest in the promises of where "dad" will open his eye to.

In Jesus name I pray...Amen

Just went thru this with my Dad. It's not easy and in the end it seemed like it was harder for me than my Dad. He seemed to be at peace. When his time came, Dad left this world peacefully, in his sleep. May yours do the same.
Prayers of strength and comfort to you.
