Prayer for my Dad

Post by Abigail* on Wed Feb 16, 2011 3:44 pm

Hello,

I ask that you please pray for my dad. He is not a believer, he has gone to church with my mom and me ever since I was a kid but he always says he only goes for us. He says he doesn't feel anything at church and he feels no need to go whenever he doesn't. He says he doesn't understand our motivation to go to church since he does not feel anything when he passes to pray or anything. He is a very hard-hearted person and I keep praying for God to touch him and make him feel His love. I know the Lord has a timing for everything, but I ask if you can also help me pray for this reason. My parents have had many marriage problems in the past all due to arguments with no point, money, and sometimes even because of church! Because my mom tries to explain to my dad about spiritual things and God's power but he just doesn't believe. My dad is sitting here on the couch watching a movie and he's wearing a hearing aide because he doesn't hear at all from his left ear, and as I saw him fixing the hearing aide my mom bought him a thought came to mind. I believe the Lord will heal his ear! The Lord is so wonderful and I know no matter the person's thinking He still makes miracles happen because His love is so great! And that way people will start believing, I believe my dad's hearing problem will be a way for him to believe. I believe once he is healed his eyes will finally be opened and he will see how mighty our Lord is! Of course, first he'll need prayers so the Lord can change his heart and his way of thinking. He also has an addiction problem with smoking cigarettes but nothing is impossible for our Lord! Help me pray for this reason, because the Lord has told me time and time again that he will be saved.

God Bless You All!

Abigail,
I posted something like this before, but I would like to repeat it for you. I heard once the testimony of a man who died. He was on his way to heaven and he saw rockets passing him. He asked the Lord what those rockets were. Jesus said, "Those are the prayers of the saints." Then there were rockets that were faster than all the rest that were speeding their way to heaven. He asked the Lord what those were and the Lord told him, "Those are the prayers people are praying for the salvation of others."

You're praying in the perfect will of God when you're praying for the salvation of your dad. I know God is pleased with these prayers. I just want to encourage you not to give up.

So right now I pray for Abigail's dad. Lord, open his spiritual eyes and ears. Let him see past the hurts in his heart, let the scales fall off his eyes. Give my sister and her mom wisdom and strength in every interaction they have with this man. Give them unconditonal love for him and show them how to treat this man with respect even though at times it may seem he doesn't deserve respect. I don't know if a physical healing and deliverance from tobacco will change this man's heart, but if it will, have at it Lord! Bring this man into your kingdom, in Jesus' name! Amen!
