Prayers and thoughts for my Dad

This morning my Dad is having surgery, a knee replacement and hopefully they can straighten his leg. This surgery has a lot of hope pinned on it because it can potentially give him a much better quality of life.
It is really hard not being there.
Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts.

* edited to add*  Dad had a really long 5 hours of surgery and has spent 7 hours in recovery. He's very sick and borderline going to ICU.  He had his surgery with only an epidural!! madness!! he's one tough old cookie.  Keep those prayers coming, he's got a long recovery ahead of him.

I sure hope your dad will recover and be okay. It is a long road to recovery, but it does happen. My sister had both her knees replaced at the same time and said the pain was worse than childbirth! Now she can walk much better without any pain though, but it took a long time. Praying for you dad right now.

Oh God, You are the great physician and we know nothing is too hard for you. You love to do the impossible and love us so much. Please heal this man and help him through the pain and therapy. I ask that you comfort him and his family and give them peace as well. Help them to work out all the logistics helping him recover. Thank you for always hearing our prayers. In Jesus name, Amen.
