My Dad Rushed to Emergency

My dad on the way to the hospital. Breathing problems. He has a history of COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and High Blood Pressure.



My prayer is that God would use this situation to draw my dad to the Lord. That my dad would realize the depravity of his sin and give up on his self-righteousness and turn to the only one who is able to save him which is Jesus Christ. 

"No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day." John 6:44

"For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away." Isaiah 64:6

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." John 14:6

"let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. “He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:10-12

"...how I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you publicly and from house to house, solemnly testifying to both Jews and Greeks of repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ." Acts 20:21

"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come." 2 Corinthians 5:17

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John 3:16-18
