Praying for he and his wife who have been hospitalized.
I pray for their mercy, oh Lord Jesus Christ (it's important to be specific) and father of all things great and small including your good son.
They did not know what they were doing, or even if they did are we not all in need of God's mercy and grace?
In forgiving as we have been forgiven all is forgiven and the world is born anew.
History doesn't matter. It's what God has written in the Book of Life that counts.
And believe it or not, I pray that they be included in it and that they find God's mercy and grace in their final days, whenever that might be
according to God's will (never our own).
This is the greater transcendent truth of Christian love - is that it prays for and weeps for the enemy or the evil, the wicked and the foolish, and
in so doing binds the evil one while saving the human world that God so loves that He included it, and the son, and me, and George and Barbara.
He stood in for us you see and took a stand, not just for what's right, but what is ultimately the most loving.
I've been taught by Him that in so doing I am counted as a son of God, as is the one who finds God's mercy and love.
To them, I would say - it's going to be ok no matter what happens.
Now that's power when we're dealing with the one who has the power to either condemn us, or to forgive and include us in a familial hug.
I had and still have, I believe, a very very powerful mother, a saint in heaven if you will.
I pray not only that they find and experience the love of Jesus, but that they might also be met with the love of Kay as well.
You can't pray for someone really, unless you're willing to go all out! LOL (with tears).
Repay them in kindness oh Lord, and teach them the depths and breadths of your love and power and might, which was hidden in apparent weakness.
Forgive us for not understanding clearly the nature of your loving ways and loving kindness even in spite of ourselves, as well as the capacity for
your potential wrath (the beginning of wisdom).
Forgive us heavenly father our trespasses, as we forgive those who've trespassed against us. In the holy name of Jesus Christ son of God, amen, and
Thank you for extending to us the shelter of your own right arm, and the embrace of both of them (no devil or "left hand path" laying around or
And while we're at it, please bring all black magic and sorcery and wickedness in high and low places to an end. No more sacrifice. "I ask for mercy,
not sacrifice" he said, on more than one occasion as if to stress the point.
Oh God is good, God is great, who do we appreciate?! Yayyyyy God! (a little mantra my mom and I did, even while she was dying).
Grace upon grace upon grace. (something she said wonderingly, while dying).
It's even more graceful, and valuable when it comes even in spite of ourselves, unconditionally, and it has the power to change everything because
"when the hearts of men change, kingdoms change" (John the Baptist, the Initiator).
It's never too late to embrace an idea who's time has come, especially when it awaits us all with opened arms!
Be blessed (not blessed be).
