Default Losing my Step Dad

My Step Dad, who has been 100% my Dad since I was 10 is giving up his long cancer battle. He had a stroke last Sunday and his body is just too weak from the cancer to fight back.

The night nurse called us at 2am and advised us to get to the hospital ASAP which Mom and I did. We have since made the decision to suspend supportive care and only provide comforting care.

Thoughts and prayers for his comfort would be appreciated.

Oh man Brent, my heart aches for you and your mom and family. I am so sorry, but rest assured your dad will soon be eternally healed and live forever in that new City.


Lord God in Heaven, hear our plea. We ask You Lord to comfort this dad as he prepares to meet you face to face. I ask You Lord make that preparation painless, sweet and short. Bring him close to You Lord and comfort the family with the Hope that is in Your Son Jesus Christ our Savior. Make this passing easy and make their grief brief. At the right time Lord, give them their Joy back when they are ready. Help them all to heal their hearts that they may also work toward that glorious day when they are reunited with their loved one. Lord I ask You to give our Brother Brent strength. Give him strength to help his mother endure this horrible loss. Give him strength to assume the role of Patriarch of the family and show him how to lead his family through this tragedy of loss, but Lord also show him how to celebrate his dad's passing into his homecoming and to rejoice in it. Lord I ask You to guide them and direct them through this trial and keep them under protection and give them the peace only You can bring in all the decisions that they have had to make and will make to make this passing complete. We ask these things in the name of our Advocate with You that gives us access to draw near You God, the name of Jesus Christ our Savior, Amen.


Hang in there Brent! You got this. Be strong for your mom. Let us know how we can help.
