My brother David

Recommended Posts

David is in hospital after several strokes - & expected to die in a day or so.

He is in Southampton 70 miles away, he's never trusted Christ & had a mocking attitude to me - often quoting the school RE teacher who questioned all the basic Bible teaching from a modernist position.

Thanks for prayer - we saw him this afternoon - he looks stable, his left hand was functioning, but the right looked useless. I was able to read & remind him of the Gospel, & pray with him. 

I don't know what to expect in the way of recovery - pray that he will be at peace with God. 

His wife, grandson & our sister were at the hospital. We don't meet very often - a 150 mile round trip is a lot for me. 

I think most of us have families we are concerned about. 

We were scheduled to look after our grandson Michael (2 1/2) today - they've move 120 miles away.They came & we played with him, I cuddled Alexandra (1 month) & quietened her by singing "There's a friend for little children." My son's RC wife Jola is open to such low key witnessing.

May we have a blessed & encouraging Lord's Day.

Ian, I will certainly be in prayer about this situation and ask for church prayer tomorrow, both for your brother's health and especially for his salvation. I am sure that he has had adequate witness in the form of his brother. Let's all just pray that that witness will have sown the seed that will lead him into our Saviors loving arms.

Ian thank for the update on your brother that I may continue to pray for his salvation and full recovery, I'll also be in prayer for Jola

May the Lord comfort the hearts of you and your family with His wonderful peace.

God bless brother

David's son reported a slight improvement in his basic condition - breathing easier & both eyes opening, but now the hospital considers that there is no hope of any normal life. At best he will be bed-ridden & totally dependent for everything. They expect his heart to give out, so will give basic care but not medical treatment.

Please continue to pray for his salvation, as presumably his mind is active. Dying is still living.

Ian,

I will be praying for you and the family as you have suffered this great loss friend. God be with you and strengthen you mightily.

As John encouraged in his post above, hold on to the hope, and as you posted above, God can do wonderful things in a mans mind at the end, when a man sits in silence.

Your life with David might not be over, except maybe here.

Remember, His word will not return void,

Russ
