Prayer for 2 Corinthians 2:16

“To some we are a scent of death leading to death, but to others, a scent of life leading to life. And who is competent for this?”

Heavenly Father, thank You that I am Your child, and that I am being changed from glory to glory by the power of the Spirit. I pray that You would use me to witness of Your goodness and grace, to both the saved and to those that are lost. Shine the light of the glorious gospel into the hearts of those that are dead in their sins - so that they may come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ my Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

The Death Of A Believer

Loving Lord I am filled with grief and sadness at the loss of my precious loved one – and yet that pain is tinged with gold, knowing that they trusted you as their Saviour and that they are now in Your presence.

I know that I am going to miss this precious one, who has been my strength and my joy for so long, and thank You for the precious times we had together.

Often Lord I expect my dear one to just be there, or walk through the door - and then remember that they have gone home to be with You. At times this is quite hard and yet I know that I must not grieve as those that have not hope in Jesus – but rejoice knowing that the day is coming when we will be together with You and You will wipe away all tears from our eyes - but at the moment my loss is like an open wound – and I pray that You will heal my brokenness and the loneliness I feel… and draw me every closer into Your arms of love my Lord and my God.

Thank You for all You are to me and may I rest in You in Jesus name,

Amen
