For my co-worker, Josh, and the soul of his sister
« on: August 21, 2009, 03:22:01 PM »
Please pray for my co-worker, a young Mathematics instructor at our university named Josh. His sister, in her 30-s, tragically died yesterday. May the Lord have mercy on her soul and may he strengthen Josh and his parents. Josh is devastated.
Love never fails.

Memory Eternal!
May the Good Lord have mercy on Josh and his family and alleviate their grief!

Lord, have mercy!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

May the Lord have mercy on them both!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
