Prayer – Life After Death – written on the passing of my dear Pastor Sammy.
Jehovah Shalom, we bow before your Throne of grace and mercy, requesting your Holy presence. Father, comfort us in this difficult time, please draw near. Hold us closely to your heart, as we weep in the passing of our loved one. Jehovah Rapha, heal our broken hearts, as we cry out in desperation.
2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith…
Adonai, we may not be able to comprehend why this is happening but we trust Your divine intervention, for You alone know the thoughts and the plans you think towards us. Father, we accept that he has been accepted into Your Kingdom and now he is truly in a better place.
Psalm 18:2 “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
Jehovah Sabaoth, we will not mourn any further, for we choose to celebrate the life and legacy of our dear Pastor. We thank You for using him in a special way to touch the lives of many. We chose to utilize the teachings he has left behind, not only in our own lives but in the lives of others. We choose to emerge out of the shadows and be the light in this dark world, and, as we go out equipped for battle, we will remember our beloved Pastor, every step of the way.
Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
In Jesus’ Mighty name we pray, Amen!
