Prayer for a dying friend
« on: September 24, 2010, 04:28:06 PM »
A good  friend is going to die after a stroke.

She is agonizing and won't recover anymore.

Would you please join my prayer for a peaceful death and for love to Maria in Cologne/Germany.

May she peaceful die and may love carry her through this moment.

God bless you.

Lord, have mercy on Maria, and ease her pain.
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 she peaceful die and may love carry her through this moment.

God bless you.

I just now came in the house after spending time with a friend I nearly lost to breast cancer.  She is my heart-sister, and today was a perfect balmy day full of good fun and great joy to just be alive and be friends!

May your dear friend share in that love and hope and gratitude, and may our Lord come for her on warm breezes and carry her home on a cloud.

God bless you too for your friendship and love.

M.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Prayer for a dying friend - she passed over to the lord yesterday
« Reply #13 on: September 28, 2010, 07:10:37 AM »
I posted a message earlier " Prayer for a dying friend" and want to thank all of the people who prayed for Maria, who left her body yesterday.

Maria was from Roumania and died in (political) exile in Germany at the age of 79.

She was pure compassion.

My love is with her and may her soul find peace.God bless you.

Amen
