updated: prayers for my dad please

Updated: Dad had surgery and is making good progress. It remains to be seen how the multiple sclerosis will be at work. Thanks for all the emails of support and prayer. Much appreciated.

My Dad had a fall yesterday and is now in hospital needing surgery for a hip replacement. He’s got multiple sclerosis and I’m really scared about the impact of surgery will have on his overall wellbeing. What with this and losing our family rabbit last week, it’s not so far been our best summer holiday.

  3. Steve,

    Fan of your book from Indiana, USA…thought I’d visit your blog.

    Almighty God, please be with Steve’s dad. Give him freedom from pain, and please be his strength in the upcoming months of healing. Amen.

  5. Hi Steve,

    prayers for your Dad for healing from Germany. I read about your blog on emergent-deutschland.de, the emergent church forum in Germany. They said something about sending you postcards…

    Wish you and your family a blessed 2008!

    Blessings, Gisela

  6. Steve,

    You offer such encouragement to others, the least one can do is honor a simple request for prayers for your family. Your whole family is in our thoughts and prayers. Please let us know how your Dad is.

    Most sincerely,
