Im sorry to hear of the suffering your family is experiencing. I have had personal experience with loosing someone very close to me, and watching her suffer a great deal in the last couple months. My approach during this time was to pray for healing or a peaceful death, and my approach in prayer was "let it be done according to Your will". This way I wasn't tell God what to do, and put my trust in Him that His will would be done.
Rom. 8:18 - the sufferings of the present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. We thus have hope that any sufferings we or others endure, no matter how difficult, will pale in comparison to the life of eternal bliss that awaits us.
John 12:24 - unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone and bears no fruit. Jesus is teaching that suffering and death are part of every human life, and it is only through suffering and death that we obtain the glory of resurrection.
Rom. 5:2-3 - Paul says that more than rejoicing in our hope, we rejoice in our sufferings which produces endurance, character and hope. Through faith, suffering brings about hope in God and, through endurance, salvation.
I pray for both you and your father...
