My step-father
« on: January 22, 2013, 04:01:44 PM »
I beg of all who read this to please pray for the repose of my step-father, Paul.  He fell asleep in the Lord yesterday evening from complications arising from a long battle with emphysema, cancer, and COPD.

May he rest in God's peace and may his memory be eternal!

Many thanks!

God of the spirits and of all flesh,
who have trampled death and annihilated the devil
and given life to your world, may you yourself,
O Lord, grant to the soul of your deceased servant
Paul rest in a place of light, a verdant place,
a place of freshness, from where suffering,
pain and cries are far removed.
Do You, O good and compassionate God
forgive every fault committed by him in word,
work or thought because there is no man
who lives and does not sin.
You alone are without sin and your justice
is justice throughout the ages and your word is truth.
Since you, O Christ our God, are the resurrection,
the life and the repose of your deceased servant N.,
we give you glory together with your un-begotten Father
and your most holy, good and life-creating Spirit,
now and always and forever and ever.


In Christ,
J Michael

May his Memory be Eternal!
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Memory Eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Eternal be the Memory of the Servant of God Paul, may the Lord comfort his family and all his loved ones.

I am sorry for your loss J Michael my brother. May the Lord comfort you.
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
