Vanity: Please pray for my cousin Amber
Huntress | 6/18/11 | Huntress

Posted on 06/18/2011 7:02:50 PM PDT by Huntress

Dear FReepers:

Funerals are never happy occasions, but the one I attended today was among the saddest. My cousin Amber's husband died suddenly this past week, apparently from an aneurysm. He collapsed in the midst of a conversation with a co-worker and died immediately. He was fifty-three. He leaves behind Amber and their two children, ages three and five.

Amber is strong, and has emotional support from family and friends, but it will be difficult for her to recover from this tragic loss and raise two small children alone. Please pray for her and her children.

Thank you.

Huntress

So young!

Prayers for Amber and her and your family. Strength and comfort will be needed and I pray the Lord will provide (and am sure He will).

A prayer for Amber and for her children has been sent.

I also prayed that there would be men in the family circle who will stand in the gap for this widow and the fatherless.

Our life is but a vapor. If anyone needs to do business with God, do not delay. You are not guaranteed tomorrow.

May the comfort of the Holy Spirit surround Amber and her children, and may the presence and prayers of family and friends minister to their anguished hearts. Have mercy, O Lord, in the Name of Jesus, have mercy.

I will surely remember Amber. Having family is probably the best thing for her along with faith in God.

I just found out today that one of my favorite cousins has an aneurysm. His Dr. told him he will not live much longer as it is not operable.

This person has lived a long and both happy and fruitful life which does make it a bit less traumatic. He was once the pastor of one of the largest churches in Florida but then went to work for the Sunday School Board in Nashville before he retired.

He has MC’d our family reunion for 55 years and today he preached a short sermon about the Apostle Paul and his vision of heaven. He has already told his wife how he wants his funeral to be conducted. One thing is he wants a girl to sing a Capella at grave side. The song is “When They Ring Those Golden Bells For You and Me.”

Amber has my prayers. My father passed in a similar manner and just as suddenly.

Nothing anyone can say or do will change your pain. I just lost my soul mate of 23 years this past March.

I wish I could give you better news, it sucks. It will never get better. Sorry, but that is the reality if you were really in love.

Dear Heavenly Father, please comfort Amber and her children. May she feel your embrace and presence. May she be filled with courage and conviction to raise her children even though she is broken hearted. In this, I pray. Amen.

Sweet Father, Author of our souls, hear my prayer.....
Please Father, heal Amber’s broken heart, the pain in the children’s soul as to why their father was suddenly taken away. OH FATHER, please bring deep breaths and calm reassurance to this family that is so very pained. So broken, so in despair.

Father, You alone can bring them that peace, and I ask that you do in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

AMEN

This happened to my youngest sister when her two children were the same ages. She and the children are okay and I pray the same for Amber and her children.
