Eternal Rest Grant unto Erik


Please pray for my dear friends son Erik who passed away last week. He was a young 29 years old and we will greatly miss his beautiful, gentle soul.

His mom Anne is not in good health and I pray for her to get through this extraordinarily difficult time. We, her friends and family are supporting her and helping in every way we know how. Pray for her and for all of us to know how to minister to her needs.

His dad, Jon is one of the kindest generous people I know and I consider him to be one of my best friends. (we were friends before I became as close to his wife Anne) Jon is very good at being strong, but I know this has rocked his world. Pray for him to be able to continue the strength for his wonderful wife and for our dear Lord to console and support him.

His sister Coleen, a lost soul. Has more love than she knows what to do with. She has struggled with her own demons and has overcome them. May God grant her the strength to keep those demons at bay as she heals from the loss of her beloved brother.

His son Connor, 5 years old, who loved his daddy so much he told his grandma Anne, he wanted to go live with his daddy.

Thank you all of you prayer warriors. His funeral is tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. MST If you could offer up a prayer for Erik, I his family and all of us who love him, I would greatly appreciate it.




Remembering Erik as I pray tonight.



Eternal rest grant unto Erik O Lord
Let perpetual light shine on him
May he rest in peace
