For A Dying Christian Friend in a Hospice

Loving Lord, I just want to lift up my dear friend to You, who has been such a comfort and strength to me for so many years – but who has at last been admitted to a hospice where she is to pass her final few weeks of life in dignity and respect - as her life drains from her.. Lord I know that I am going to miss her so much…

Be with her Lord, every moment of the day and night. Thank You Father that she is to be looked after in such a caring and understanding environment. Be with the staff who are to attend her as her life flows from her and Lord –I pray that she would be very aware of Your very presence with her, every moment of the day.

Lord I know that she is ready and longing to meet You face to face and I ask that You would keep her free from the pain and suffering that so often stalks the advancement of death – But praise God that the grave has lost its terrible sting and death has lost its victory, through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.. Praise Your holy name…

Lord I know that I am going to miss my dear friend – but my sadness has such a wonderful tinge of hope and joy, for I know that soon we will all be together in Your company – where we will be free from all sickness and sadness – and You will wipe away every tear from our eyes. Thank You Lord in Jesus name…

Amen
