Death of a Loved One Prayer
Posted by mark on 3 Feb 2014 . Filed under: Uncategorized
The Lord brings death and makes alive;
He brings down to the graves and raises up.
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,
You will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth You will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.
Lord, if You had been here, he would not have died. But I know that even now God will give You whatever You ask.
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”
The Apostle Paul wrote, “…God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him…and the dead in Christ will rise first… Therefore encourage each other with these words.” (NIV)
