    I think the best way is to let your light shine before him and model a godly attitude/ behavior before him.

    Pray, pray, and pray some more. And when you think you have prayed enough, pray again!

    Would telling him about God possibly help?

    Show him God’s love and pray. Don’t push him. Don’t push. That does no good. Pray without ceasing.

    In addition to praying and living an exemplary life, I think you should also invite him for events organized by your church, it's a good way to start getting him to miss his past life as a dedicated Christian

    Live out your life, following G-d as best you can. Make sure your life is an example of what a Christian should be.

    In the mean time, pray strong prayers. Pray the G-d will do whatever he must, to bring your father back to the Lord. Pray and wait.

    Generally speaking, unless you have an unusual relationship with your father, most parents do not want receive instruction by their children on topics like sex, money, or religion and morals.

    Now I understand that you have no intention of lecturing your father, you just want to bring him back to the Lord. My experience is, that doesn't work to well. So generally advise that you pray that G-d will deal with your father, and bring him back, himself. Either pray that someone else, someone your father respects, will talk to him about the Lord, or that G-d will bring whatever troubles and trials are needed to bring him back.

    So that is my advice.

    Sometimes, people in their free will just choose to reject God. As God's servants, we are to put God first before our loved ones.

    It is not easy, I know, but that is just what God requires of us.

    I am the sole christian in my entire family.

    Yes, it is all right to pray for him and tell him about God.
    Who knows, he might just repent.

    Of course you should tell him about God if you have the opportunity to do so. Just don't nag him about the subject if he isn't interested. That could create a barrier to his believing. And above all don't stop praying for him.
