Need prayer/ good thoughts

Two years ago my 86 year old father went under the knife for an aortic disection and annurism. He made it through with flying colors! Now I sit by his bed wondering if he'll se the sun again. He was out enjoying the nice weather and collapsed. After cardiac arrest, he's alive. Now we wait. I'm not an over religious man, but believe in the power of prayer and energy.
Any help sure couldn't hurt!
Thank you, Sten?
