Default I need some prayers for my Grannie

She's 89 years old, and up until a year ago, she'd work circles around most men.

Her problems first started with A-fib. She now has a pacemaker, and a handful of medications, but her heart is taking its toll on her aging body. She's down from about 140 pounds, to 90 pounds in the last 6 months.

Recently, she moved from her bedroom, to the couch, to sleep because it was more convenient for her. Over the last few weeks, she's become less and less active; some days never getting up from the couch. She saw her heart doctor, today, and he told her that if she didn't up her activity, that she's not even a candidate for physical rehab.

Her son lives with her, but won't do a **** thing to help her.

We've asked her third grandson if he and his girlfriend could move in to help her; she won't have it.

She doesn't want to go into a nursing home. I can't say I blame her.

We've asked her if she'd move in with my mom, but she won't do that either.

My mom and step-mom are the only people that she'll let help her. My mom lives an hour away, and goes to help her on the weekends. My step-mom goes by there twice a day, to help her, and takes her to most of her doctor's appointments.

Her quality of life is just about zero.

She is a very Godly woman, but I don't think she's quite ready to see Him. Of all the people in my life, I figured she'd be the one that wasn't afraid of dying, just because of her devout Catholic faith.

I don't know what the Lord has in store for her; I just hope he does it sooner than later, whether it's physical healing or the end of her suffering.

If you have a second, say a quick prayer for her.

Dear God, we come together in prayer for this woman. We ask for your strength, comfort, perseverance, peace, and complete and supernatural healing, protection, and provision for her. That she and her family feel your comforting hand over them. Praying all this through your son, our mighty Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

It sounds like she is getting close to seeing God whether she wants to or not. Eventually, we all have to accept the inevitable.

Prayers up but lots of Granny's are way too independent to want much help. My mother was the exact same way. Died in 2014 at the age of 92.

Heavenly Father through Your Son Jesus we come to you in petition to our brother Kevin's Grannie. Lord You know her and you know her heart. Though her physical heart is weak and old, her Spiritual Heart is devoted to You. Lord, If it is to be that You heal her earthly heart, please do it quickly and restore her to her family. If Lord it is time for her to come Home, Lord make that peaceful and painless to her as well. In either case Lord, we pray for Kevin and the rest of the family that they too be comforted knowing that Grannie's eternity is foreknown, that she will spend eternity is a restored heavenly body with You Lord. Whenever that day comes, Lord we will mourn her passing, but we will rejoice in the Homecoming that is to be grand. Give our brother Kevin strength to help the rest of the family into peace and strength with a hope that is in Your Son that You gave up for us even on a cross that we may have direct personal relationship and life with You Father. Guide our brother Kevin and give him wisdom to lead the family and keep him strong. We ask these things in the powerful healing name of You Son Jesus our Savior, Amen.
