Please pray for my family, I lost my dad this morning


#1

CA community , I have asked for your prayers and they have always been answered, I was able to get the job that I wanted and people that needed your help got it. Just the other day I asked you to pray for my aunt who is terminal. I really would like to thank you for that.

This morning my father passed away in his sleep, this is completely unexpected. Myself and my family are shocked, we never expected this . My father went to mass almost daily and truly helped people that needed it. He was my best friend and I dont know what I will do with out him.

With the help of CA community prayers, I was able to get the police job that I really wanted, and I am very close to graduating. I was very excited about having my father be there for that event, but I know that he will be watching from above.

I ask that you pray for myself and my family through these difficult times.

Absolve, we beseech Thee, O Lord,
the soul of Thy servant
from every bond of sin,
that being raised in the glory of the resurrection,
he may be refreshed among the Saints and Elect.
Through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Holding you all in my prayers and thoughts.

So very sorry.
We also lost a family member this week. Husband’s brother, Enoch.
We are so sure they are both with the Lord. That is the most important thing.
Then, after that, we just have to give it time & wait until it doesn’t hurt so bad.
“Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted”.
Jesus own promise to us.
Praying for you in Christ’s love,
Agatina

Heavenly Father I thank you for gift of this man’s life, a husband, a father, a friend, one who worshipped You, prayed often and helped others. Lord I love to hear the stories of others who had You at their center, who treasure You. You said where our treasure is there will be our heart also. Lord we know You are our greatest treasure. I know the pain of missing your dad. They are irreplaceable, speaking in human terms, and I pray you would assauge this family’s grief with Your great hope. There are no “goodbyes” to those who are in You Lord, there is only, “until later” when we meet in the glory of Your promise to all who love You. Help this family Lord and strengthen their faith in Your glorious hope. May they be blessed in You I pray in the Name of Christ Jesus, Amen.

Boxerdog so very sorry for your loss, having lost my mum unexpectedly 21 years ago i know only to well how devastating it is to lose a parent. I was 23 when she died and as much as i miss her and wish that she were still here i just thank God for those 23 years i had with her, others are’nt so fortunate in that they have suffered the lose of a parent in their teens or even younger that breaks my heart. So try and remember all the good times you and your dad and your family have had throughout the years and rejoice in them.You and you’re family will be in my prayers. May God Bless you all.
