Do Old Folks Foresee Their Deaths These Days by Nigeriakan: 8:53am On Jan 21, 2013
It marvelled me when I read the portion of the Scriptures that narrates how Isaac blessed his sons before he died. This very part shows us that Isaac had foreseen his deathday which then prompted him to praying for his children before dying. I think Abraham did something near that too: he found a wife for Isaac before he died. And such similar issues occur and recur in the Bible.
While growing up in the village, I used to hear such stories as well; when an old, dying parent would call their children and share a word of prayers with them because they knew they would soon die. Infact, some died just after they had finished the prayers.
But nowadays, I don't think such thing still happens -- or it may be that I am only assuming it does not. Please have you witnessed or heard of such experience just of recent?
Just curious to know...

I think it does.... My distant uncle before he died took some steps of reconciliation but though, it wasn't successful
