Prayers for a friend
« on: June 02, 2007, 04:44:48 PM »
Please say a prayer for my friend James who is dying from the effects of dementia and a broken pelvis. He probably won't make it through the next few days. :(

Lord have mercy on Thy servent, James.
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Lord have mercy.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I called to mind the Prophet who shouted, "I am but earth and ash." And once again I looked with attention on the tombs, and I saw the bones there which of flesh were naked; and I asked, "Which indeed is he that is king? Or which is soldier? Which is the wealthy, which the needy? Which the righteous, or which the sinner?" But to Your servant, O Lord, grant that with the righteous he may repose.

Grant rest, O Lord, to the soul of Thy departed servant James.

I think the French may be on to something here.
