Please Pray

February 25, 2009

Hugh’s mom called about an hour ago.  His dad suffered a massive heart attack last night and is now with Jesus.

I can’t even think right now.

Everyone is crying.  We are going up to Indiana.

Please pray for our family.

    “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.”
    2 Corinthians 1:3-5

    Lifting your family up in prayer. I pray that the Great Comforter wrap His arms around you today and that you feel that peace only He can give.

    Love in Christ,

    i am praying for you and your family today and for the days to come. please call if you need anything. i am sorry for your loss.

    I am speechless, but the Holy Spirit knows our hearts and prays when we can’t find the words. Peace and comfort to all of you. Isaiah 61:1 says that, “He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted…” So I’ll pray that, and for you to be a blessing and a balm to Hugh while he grieves. What a joy for Heaven to welcome home a son, and how great a loss for your family to lose a father for a while!

    Jess, I’m so sorry! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers today. I couldn’t help but think of Job when I read such sad news in the midst of your week of praise. I know that God is probably saying to all of heaven, “Watch my girl, Jess. She will keep on praising me even now. Isn’t she beautiful?”

    Praying for God to heal your hearts and brings you comfort!

    I read your blog every morning when I get to work. When I opened it this morning and saw the news of your family, my heart and prayers immediately went out to you and your family. We’ve never met in person, but I feel like I know you through your blog.
    May the peace that passes all understanding cover you and your family during this time and always!

    Oh, sweet friend. I’m just now reading all of this. I hate that I missed it and haven’t been covering you and your family in prayer. It is obvious that lots of other people have been, though. Jess, you will be a blessing through all of this to Hugh’s entire family, I have no doubt. I’m so sorry for your loss, for your mil’s loss, for Hugh’s loss, for your children’s loss. I wish I had wise words for you right now. Just know you are loved and I am praying.
