Default Prayers need if ya donít mind

Iíll try to keep this as short as I can. When the freeze came through the hill country the majority of my dad and stepmoms pipes froze when they lost power. Well that had them having to come to Baytown to stay with my wife and I. They managed to avoid Covid for so long out there isolated until they basically had no choice but to come this way. At least until we could get back and get the plumbing repaired. Even with myself working pretty isolated on the pipeline I still managed somehow to get Covid and brought it home. In doing so they managed to get it as well. We had to take them both to the emergency room last week. My dad stayed a week and was able to get out. My stepmom is still in ICU and on 100 percent oxygen. It is not looking good at all for her. I know the Lords will be done but my dad is sure struggling especially since he canít be with her. I myself am trying to deal with knowing I brought it home all while trying to be here for him and help him through this. I will attempt to post the story of my dad who is a Vietnam veteran and his current wife that was his girlfriend during the war. Itís a long read but pretty interesting. There is a picture link as well. Thanks for any prayers yíall could send up.

The title was supposed to say “prayers needed” not “prayers need” as I’m sure y’all know. Had to get that out since it’s driving me crazy every time I read it. This man that I see struggling has been my only hero in life. He got custody of my sister and I in the 70’s and raised us the best he could. He had us in a Southern Baptist church at least three times a week. I leaned on him and caused him more grief than the law should have allowed and he never gave up on me. I will not waiver from his side at all. I know he’s struggling with only being able to partially communicate with her 8 kids and numerous grandkids in Vietnam. He speaks enough Vietnamese to get by but it’s still a struggle. Especially via FaceTime. I can’t imagine the emotions they feel over there as there mother lives the American dream. Thanks again for the kind words, prayers and allowing me to vent. It is much appreciated.

Tough deal, hate to hear but don’t blame yourself. God has a plan, we definitely don’t usually understand it, but he is there with us through it all. Dear God, we ask for your strength, comfort, perseverance, and complete and supernatural healing, protection, and provision over this woman and her family. For your guiding hand over her medical team, and peace for her and he family. Praying all this through your son, our mighty Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

Thanks so much for all the prayers and kind words. This lady treated me like her own from the day I met her. I don’t remember the last hog or deer my dad actually had to clean since she’s been here. He never got enough meat off the carcass/bone in her mind. Lol Both her and my dad are good christian folks and don’t deserve this. You never truly know how strong your faith is until it’s tested.
