Gracious Heavenly King, it is always hard for us to see our loved ones getting older and having to go through the trials of advancing years and deteriorating health, but Father, how I thank You for the life and witness of this dear brother in Christ..
Lord, as he is drawing ever closer to the time when You call him home to be with Yourself, keep him I pray, enfolded in Your loving arms. Uphold him with Your righteous right hand, and may he know the gracious comfort of Your Holy Spirit deep within his inner being.
Thank You, Lord, for all that he has taught us of You, and of the grace and encouragement that his life and witness has been to so many. And now Lord, I pray that the grace of our lovely Lord Jesus Christ be with him as he rests his soul in You. Grant him to have precious Spirit to spirit fellowship with Your Holy Spirit of peace and love, as he crosses the final portal into the eternal realm. In Jesus' name I pray,
