Prayer for Emily Enns and Family

2013-10-07

The following prayer was delivered Friday afternoon by Mr. Hopper after a phone call that brought sad news of the sudden death of the father of one of our students, freshman - Emily Enns.
Lord Jesus, you are the master of life and death. You said, “I am the resurrection and the life,” and this afternoon we believe this with all our hearts. And, Lord, you know far more than we do what death is all about. So we come to you in our pain and in our sadness. Draw near, O Lord, for we desperately need your help.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us. Have mercy on Emily. Have mercy on the whole family. You have promised to be near to the broken-hearted. Come near, O Lord, come near because they and we need you so much. Help them to rest in you. We thank you that heaven is a real place and that when you said, “Today you will be with me in paradise,” you were speaking to all of us who believe in you. This morning those words came true for Emily’s dad, Chuck where no pain or sadness can touch him any longer.
We are the ones in need this afternoon. Help us because we are your children. Help us so that our faith will not fail. Help us so that we may somehow bring glory to you.
We pray this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
