View Full Version : Prayer Request
12-30-2009, 10:30 PM
Guys and gals,
I'd like to ask you all for a prayer tonight. The nursing home just called about my grandmother. She's 95 and has been in failing health for quite some time now. She's really bad tonight. They said we could put her in an ambulance and take her to the hospital, or we could call in Hospice. The head nurse at the home really likes my grandmother and our family and she is the one who offered hospice. I reckon being a nurse at a home like that, she's seen enough of these situations to know when it's the end.
All I'm really asking is that the Lord take her quickly and without pain or any more suffering than she's already endured. It's time whenever the Lord is ready for her.
Gotcha buddy, prayers already sent.

Everyone, thank you for your prayers and kindness. Hospice will come in the morning to manage her comfort. We do not know when the Lord will call her home, but it is just a matter of time. It may be hours, days or weeks, only He knows the hour.
While I know where she is going and that one day I will meet her again in a place where there is no pain or sickness.
"I am a poor wayfaring stranger
traveling through the world of woe.
There'll be no toil, sick or danger
in that bright land to which I go.
I'm going there to meet my father,
I'm going there no more to roam.
I'm just going over Jordan,
I'm just going to my home."
Thanks again for the prayers and kindness. You all have no idea how much it means to me today.

Jeff--Try to find some small comfort in knowing that the good earth never, ever lets us down and that in times of trouble its Creator offers us a sure refuge. One of those places of refuge, in the heart and mind as well as reality, is a musical trout stream.

Jeff---I prayed for strength for you just now. Wow! 95 years! What a joy! I was a Hospice volunteer for a few years mainly to help my mom who was dealing with my step-dad's Alzheimers Disease. Hospice is a great ministry...may it be to you as well!

Prayers sent. I pray for your peace, strength and comfort. Remember Jesus is the great comforter and in him you will find solitude, rest and comfort.

Thanks all. My mom and I met with the Hospice nurse today and we completed the paperwork for her to go into hospice care. They will ensure she is comfortable and with out unnecessary pain.
I'm incredibly sad this is happening but I am thankful that she is under the care of people who are professionals in this area of medicine. I was very impressed with the hospice nurse. She seemed to be a woman of great compassion. If everyone in the hospice organization is like her, the Lord has ensured my grandmother's last days will be spent with people who care about her dignity and will mange her pain so that she will not suffer.
For the past 4 years, my grandmother has been in a nursing home. The nurses and staff have treated her wonderfully. The hospice people are going to allow my grandmother to stay in her room at the nursing home as they have people who work closely with the home. She will be able to pass from this life into the next in her own room.
While I am saddened by these events, I am also thankful for the care she's being given.
I am also thankful for all of your prayers and kindness.
