Today’s Prayer (11/17/2021)

Oh Lord, I pray for every person who is going through a loss in their family through death. Life is like a vapor. We are here one day and gone the next. As I say this now, I know that people will be saying this about me one day when I die. But I know where I will go come death. Because I love and honor You in this life, I will be in paradise when I die. I will be free from all the pain and sorrow that comes from this life. You are the maker of all things good and I can’t wait to one day be with You, God, for all eternity in heaven. I especially pray for my wife and children. That they will fully receive You, Jesus, and become born again before their last breath. I would be sad if they were not in heaven. Many tears would be shed for sure, and now I understand the reason why You will wipe away all the tears from our eyes. And not just them do I pray that they will be in heaven, but my parents, siblings, immediate and extended family, friends, and co-workers. I don’t wish for anyone to go to hell when they die. They just need to give up what is holding them back in order to receive You for themselves. I love You, Lod. Amen.

Genesis 23:4-7

Genesis 23:4-7 (KJV)
4 I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.
5 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,
6 Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.
7 And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.

When A Loved One Dies

God gives us the strength we need when people we love pass away. He also helps us mourn with those who are suffering.
