3-5 days to live
« on: July 18, 2008, 07:31:13 PM »
An Orthodox man, age 52, named Zachariah, has been released from a hospital in Houston so he can pass away quietly at home (cancer.)  The doctors have given him 3-5 days to live.  Please pray for him and his family.

In addition, please pray for the repose of the soul of Kim, who left behind a widow and several young children after falling asleep suddenly on Tuesday.

Lord have mercy
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

Lord let your blessed will be done on our brother Zacahriah. Establish him in your peace as the whole world is passing away as the scripture teaches us. We are all thus at your mercy at all times in sickness and in health that you keep us with you not in this corrupt and destitute world but in your heavenly kingdom. This is what we seek.

So remember all of us, Zacariah, me and all of us sinful, petty and unrightious servants as you remembered the thief on your right hand when thine was on the tree of the Holy Cross.

We are not concerned about our last days or our last hours...NO. We are sure that you are with us always and forever. For you keep the seasons. There is always hope for us. But we pray that we serve you well in the time we get in the world asking for nothing, enduring all things and praising you in the name of Christ the savior of the world and that not just for us but that more so for those we meet or may not ever meet that we have made a difference for them not for this world but for the hope of the world to come.

May your grace and mercy shower over us all now and always...Amen.

O lord remember those of us who are reposed in the true faith that the course that has been placed on them was completed with faith carrying.

We know that you extend mercy in abundance; still we ask and call for it and call for you because your Holy name is worthy, blessed and wonderful...Amen. So in Christ name please remember 'Kim' who has left this corrupt world suddenly. Bless her family and those who are morning her passing.... Amen.

By no other name or any other person...only by the name Jesus Christ who is Risen and shall soon return in the second advent....Amen.

Jesus Christ is God.....Amen, Amen and Amen.

Lord, have mercy on your servant Zacahriah.  Grant him length of days and eternal peace, Amen.

May Kim's Memory be eternal and everlasting and grant strength to his widow and young children to endure the sudden loss of Your Servant, Kim. 

Added prayers for Kim

O Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on Your servant Zachariah and grant him a peaceful end.  Make Kim's memory to be eternal, and grant comfort and healing to his family during their time of grief.
