friend just lost her adult son

hi friends,

a dear friend just lost her beloved son, who is right around my age. i don't know details but i know her heart is broken, even with her hope in Christ. he dealt with a lot of stuff, and i don't know the state of his heart or faith. along with his mom, he leaves behind his wife of a few years, and four sisters, father, and a variety of family members.

i know she would appreciate prayers for comfort as they learn to navigate their new reality.

let me entertain you!

Prayers for the repose and salvation of his soul and the consolation of his bereaved family.

Lord, have mercy!

O Lord, the only Creator, who in the depths of Your wisdom provide all things out of love for mankind, and grant unto all what is profitable: give rest to the soul of the departed, for You, O God, made them and fashioned them, and You are a good God and a lover of mankind, now and forever and unto the ages of ages.

Lord, O Lord, consolation of the afflicted, comfort of those who mourn, and help of all in distress: in Your compassion console those who are afflicted by grief for the departed; heal all the pain of sorrow that lies heavy upon their hearts, and to him who has fallen asleep give rest. For You are the repose of the departed, and to You we give glory: to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
I believe, O Lord, and I confess, that You are truly the Christ, the Son of the Living God, who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the chief...
~ Ryan Isaac

Today the nature of the waters is sanctified,
The Jordan bursts forth and turns back the flood of its streams,
Seeing the Master wash Himself.

To the voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
You came, O Lord, taking the form of a servant,
Asking for baptism though you have no sin.
The waters saw You and were afraid.
The Forerunner began to tremble and cried out, saying:
How shall the lampstand illumine the Light?
How shall the servant lay hands upon the Master?
Sanctify both me and the waters, O Savior,
Who takes away the sins of the world.

- Stikhera from the Great Blessing of the Waters at Theophany (the Baptism of the Lord)

Such a horrific loss. I'll be praying for her.
If you are offended by most posts, please do not feel alone. I am an equal opportunity offender. I will offend everyone.

Follow my ramblings.
