Thank you for your prayer letter concerning my father's health. I am writing to give you a wonderful praise report. About three months ago we found out that my father needed quadruple bypass surgery for his heart. We prayed that the Lord would bring him safely through the surgery, and He did. However, five days after arriving home, he suffered severe stomach pains and could not keep any food down. He ended up back in the hospital to find he had ulcers and a blood clot in his stomach, which doctors said could kill him. But it didn't!
He returned home two weeks later only to grow weaker, and was also having trouble breathing. He lost 40 pounds in four weeks and the doctors were stumped. Every test came back negative. We kept praying God would show us what the problem was. My mother had to call 911 because my father was gasping for air. In the emergency room they took an x-ray of his lungs and found that they were filled with blood clots! The doctor could not believe he was still alive and said that he could still die. We prayed the prayer of faith over him and through his oxygen mask, he told Satan he could not kill him. Five days later my father went out to eat at a restaurant with family. God answered our prayers and totally healed my father.
So many times Satan wanted us to look at the circumstances, and it looked bad, but God was actually keeping my father alive! The storms were blowing hard, but we made it by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of my father's testimony. Glory to God!
Thank you again for your prayers, your letter, and your teachings. It helped save my father's life.
