Prayers needed
« on: February 06, 2008, 10:49:10 PM »
Brothers and sisters in Christ,

Please pray for my wife's aunt Gloria.  She has been suffering with cancer for quite a while.  It went into remission for a while, but we found out this evening that it spread to her bones and she is terminal.  We pray that if it be His will to call her home, that she have a painless passing.

Thank you,

Chris

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Prayers...

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Brothers and sisters in Christ,

It is with a heavy heart that I let you know that my wife's aunt Gloria fell asleep in the Lord this evening.  She was surrounded by several family members at her home.

My wife and I would like to thank you all for your prayers.  Please pray for our family during our time of mourning.

Thank you all again.

Thank you.  BTW . . . sorry about Walter's remarks the other day.  He gets that way when he's stressed out.

Lord have mercy on us all and remember the departed Gloria in your heavenly kingdom...Amen.

O Virgin Mary Mother of God please keep us all in your prayers and supplications to your Son our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Intercede for the departed Gloria that her soul may find rest and peace and that the door of eternity may not be shut up against her nor any of us who speaks and lives in truth in the faith of Christ the redeemer...Amen.

Lord Christ remember the grieving of this lost world who can find solice and resolve in you only. Let us not perish nor fall from your grace because of our grief over the loss of the honored among us our family and love ones who are resting in peace; for you are the life of us all and the deliverer of us all....Amen

Peace to the Gloria and her loved ones...Amen
