Give us strength, Lord
Lord your word says that we must thank you in everything. We want to thank you in all the seasons of life you take us into.
Lord we are confronted with a painful situation. We have to deal with our deep sense of loss and despair at the sudden death of a dear one at home(in Ghana). We know your Hand is in all this as you take your saints home without any notice to us. We will still cling to You and trust in your wisdom and keeping because you know what is best for all of us. Give us strength in times like these to hold on to You because we are still frail humanity despite our best efforts to remain strong. Amen (1/31/16)
