View Full Version : Heart surgery tomorrow

Dec 1st 2008, 06:11 PM
Colleague's Dad age 77. Only 1/4 of his heart is currently working; they're going to put in some kind of flesh valves, not mechanical ones, but there's a real chance he may not survive the surgery. Without the surgery he could go at any minute, and he's also fighting leukaemia. He's been in hospital for a week but is only now strong enough for them to even consider doing the op. Please pray for all the family; as far as I know, none of them are Christians. Thanks very much.

Lifting this gentleman before the Lord for a successful heart surgery. Praying for the entire family that doors would be opened for them to hear the gospel, and that they would be surrounded by witnesses.

Praying for the conviction of the Holy Spirit, especially for this older gentleman who's time may be drawing to a close. And that the Lord will use these events for His glory, and the preaching of the cross.

Please keep praying - the last update we had was this morning in a garbled text message. It was a 10 hour op yesterday and they found further complications, so he was on life support in a critical condition. I'll post again when I know more.
