Urgent Prayer

A couple days ago my father(Coleen writing) was hospitalized for a ruptured appendicts. If he lives long enough he will be 86 on January 5th. The following describes his current condition: "His white blood cell count is still above the maximum normal range, at 12,000, but his "bands" are significantly reduced which indicates the reduction of new infection. The doctor confirmed the peritonitis has spread everywhere now, is systemic. Doctor basically says that they need to stabilize him, the antibiotics are full bore, but his immune system has to be strong enough to work with the medications. So, they say it will be 24-48 hours before we will know whether he will improve or not improve."

I ask for your prayer because we don't know whether he is saved. He has had a very hard life being deaf and crippled and it would be my prayer that he could walk freely in heaven with Jesus and hear the birds sing.
