Thank You All

I would like to say thank you to all those who prayed and wished my Dad well yesterday.  It seems the power of prayer came through yesterday and my Dad, despite the weekend’s set backs, has been released from hospital this afternoon and is back home.

The same Doctor that treated him yesterday, examined him this morning and saw fit to release him today.

I have spoken with Dad this evening and he seems so happy to be at home, he seems so much more lively than when I saw him Thursday and hopefully I will see him again tomorrow evening.

So once again thank you all and thank God for His amazing power of healing.

HYMN FOR MY FATHER by COLLECTIVE SOUL
I will follow, I will follow
Till the stars fall down, till the sun burns out
I will follow, I will follow
Till Gabriel’s horn does sound

I will follow, I will follow
Through the path You chose with the words You spoke
I will follow, I will follow
By the love You always showed

I won’t cry out ’cause love has lifted me
I won’t cry out ’cause now I will receive
Everything that You’ve given me
All things to me

I will follow, I will follow
For in You I do believe

I will follow, I will follow
Through the path You chose with the words You spoke
I will follow, I will follow
By the love, the love You showed

Prayer Request For My Dad

This past Tuesday my Dad underwent a double heart bypass. The operation went well and thanks to a friend from Church I managed to get across to see on Thursday evening, considering everything he seemed to be doing well.

This morning I have spoken with my Mum, since I saw him he’s had a slight chest infection, which they have treated. But also he has suffered from heart palpitations, which concerned the Doctors enough to move him back to Intensive Care.

He has been moved back down to the ward now, but my Mum says he is not eating at all, considering he is diabetic also, this is concerning for us all.

My Dad won’t like being stuck in bed, he’s usually pretty active, but it’s not like him to not eat either, he does like his food.

I would be grateful for your prayers for my Dad, for his recovery and wellbeing. Hopefully these issues are just temporary and he will begin to make progress again, but any prayers would be really appreciated.

FOREVER MY FATHER by GO RADIO
You don’t have to be so scared and you don’t have to go tonight
Cause we just need to hold on tight for one hell of a ride
Cause we lost it all just now to the nights that left you out
So we’ll let this go somehow but you’re gonna be proud (So proud)

Cause I just needed you to pick me up like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder had me clinging to your heart
For someone to lift me up when I’m down and I’m forgotten
You’ll forever be my father and I’ll be saving tears in jars for this one

And how can I fit all these words into such a simple verse
It’s the last time that we’ll speak so you listen to me, please

Cause I just needed you to pick me up like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder had me clinging to your heart
For someone to lift me up when I’m down and I’m forgotten
You’ll forever be my father and I’ll be saving tears in jars for this one

Whoa ohoohoo
For this one….

Whoa and I just needed you to pick me up like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder had me clinging to your heart
For someone to lift me up when I’m down and I’m forgotten
You’ll forever be my father and I will be saving tears in jars for this one
