Prayers for my Dad

I would like to ask for prayers for my Dad, Ernie Masters.

I was about to email and ask for prayers, as this was to be ‘the week’. My Dad, who will be 90 on Friday, was booked in for an eye operation. He has been blind for nearly 6 months, however, after several specialist appointments, they decided that they could possibly rectify that, and booked him in to an Adelaide hospital for this Thursday, for an operation which would hopefully restore a little sight in one eye – enough for him to be able to move around, recognise faces, etc.

However, this morning my Dad took a fall, and it seems he has fractured his left hip. He is in great pain, and obviously, terribly disappointed, as it seems his eye operation will need to be cancelled or postponed. At present, he is in the middle of x-rays, etc., after which they will decide whether or not he needs to be transferred to Adelaide via the Royal Flying Doctor for an operation. Last time, it took many weeks for him to be able to walk again – healing is such a long process for these things.

So, please pray for him – for physical healing, for his hip, for his eyes, and for the strength he needs to get through.
