Prayers needed for my dad

My dad is in the hospital again and struggling not only with lung cancer, but also his congestive heart failure is acting up. He is really miserable, and we are praying round the clock.

Certainly God has allowed the highs and lows of emotions right now with the sadness of Dad's struggle and the joy of Eli's coming.

1 Thessalonians 5:16 - 18

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

We are joyful that God has given us Dad. He is such an example of courage, honesty, love, and a quiet faith. We are joyful that Eli is coming home to us soon. We give thanks for Dad and Eli. Amen.
