How to witness to my dad!!

    I grew up with my mum being a christian and always going to church and both me and my sister are both christians, however even with all of us christians in the house my dad isnt even tho he was also brought up in a christian family! It really upsets me and gets me down as I dread that something will happen him. I pray day in and day out and so does my mum but nothing seems to be happening. He says he can't go to church as he makes the sunday dinner but I no its just an excuse!

    He's a very inward about his feelings and doesnt share what he feels or thinks at all and I know I cant preach at him as he really doesnt like that! is there any way that I could witness to him but not preaching at him? How could I bring it up?

    Thanks!!:confused: :cry:
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Thank you for asking the question. :)

    First of all, what you need to do is repent (carry your cross daily) and than after repenting plead the holy and redempted blood of Jesus Christ over your entire house; dad, mom (all who live in your home), over all your belongings, pets, yourself of course and all people who dwell near and around you. The reason why you need to always repent first is because than God will always hear all your prayers K. :)

    Now once you do this you will definitely see a big difference in everyone who enters your home and all who will be around you. Than what you do is ask your Father to go to Church with you and begin talking to him about Jesus. k.

    Have Faith!

    God be with you and peace. :)

    amen sharky...

    I spoke with my mother (she listens, that is all) I tried to talk to my father but he says its personal, and shuts me down real quick (by changing the subject)...
    Pray, pray, pray and pray...
    Prepare the fields (explain the truth, can use 3rd person, or have someone you know speak to him see sharky's post) and then give it over to God.
    Patience, faith (but big time patience; that is a big one for me)

    I told my wife... I am at my wits end... I am now at a point to the next time we meet I will not budge and will not let the subject change until the truth gets out (even if he gets mad and will not talk to me afterwards; I would rather him be upset with me and have a fighting chance to get into heaven; then love me and continue onto hell)
