Could y'all please pray??

First...for my Daddy. He had a hernia, among other health problems that he had worked on. Lately, he has been experiencing pain where it was. He called me last night and said the doctor said his small intestine is enlarged and if his pain is excruciating then he needs to get to the hospital immediately, because it would be like that it would burst and he could die.
I would like for y'all to pray first for his salvation{I am pretty sure he isn't a believer}, and for his health. He is going to the ER this morning. He just turned 61 this past August and hasn't treated himself well over the years. He does love his grandkids and they love him.

Second...my brother-in-law, Jordan. This is Cory's younger brother. He was in a car accident back earlier in the year. It messed him up around his shoulder/neck/arm. His doctors found a growth{I believe} in his neck that they believe may be cancer. He was supposed to have surgery on his neck for his injuries caused by the accident, but tomorrow is going to have the growth cut out. I am praying for the steady hands of the doctors, as this is near major stuff that control his bodily movement, and of course, either that the cancer isn't there or is taken care of. I know I don't normally ask for prayer, but these things are kind of major.
Thank you so much!!

***Jordan's surgery went as well as can be expected. We will know in about a week about what they removed. Jordan is in pain, but we are hopeful that he will recover just fine.
***My Dad{stubborn old man!!} woke up feeling fine the next day, but nauseous, so he didn't go to see the doctor. I told him he felt better because all my friends were praying for him. He sounded pleasantly surprised and said thank you. I did notice Thursday night that he would wince in pain and grab his side so I don't think he is all good, hence the reason I called him stubborn. :)

Thank you all for praying. It really means a lot!!

Elise...Always remember you can ask for prayer here...I know it may seem weird but I feel like the bloggy friends I have made are part of my family. I seem to know more about you guys better than just my average friend who we just say hi in passing.

I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers! I know God is in control and will be with those doctors in both of your family memebers. Hugs!

I pray that Jesus would grant you sweet peace in all your family is enduring. I also pray that the great physician would make every decision and be every medical hand in both circumstances.
