I want to pray for us today. I do not know about you, but for me there has been a lot of death and sickness surrounding me...... We all have an appointed time to leave this life, that I know. We know to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (2 Cor 5:8). I recognize, we still hurt.....
Father God, I want to pray for the person reading this post today, experiencing this death and disease season around them. I want to pray you give them peace and strength. Give them the words of condolences to speak or not speak. Allow them to be supportive while yet grieving the loss of their friend, child, parent, and family members. Allow them to trust you, no matter how the death occurred, to look beyond the physical and see you, the Almighty God. In all things, allow them to give you thanks. To worship the all powerful, all knowing, all loving God, that you are! We love you, we adore you, we bless your Holy name.
In the name of Jesus, Amen. Amen. Amen.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
