OH Father God, be ever so close to our dear brother in Christ. We want him here, but You oh Lord, know best. Your time is perfect.
Ping to prayer lists
I am praying, but just so sad that we’re losing a great one on this side. Tired of losing the good ones on earth. :(
Heartbreak here! God remain with Chuck Colson.
The earth will be losing a multitude of Christians soon enough. I hope you're among us! :)
Prayers for his family as well as the rest of us who will miss his ministry here on Earth. My his passing be peaceful as he joins our Lord at Home.
Prayers on the way up
This man’s life has meant so much to so many. He was stricken while at the lecturn... he went down with his guns blazing. An example for us all. May God continue to use his life as a benefit to others. A true giant in God’s kingdom.
So sad. I’ve enjoyed many of his books.
May God comfort his family.
Praying for peace and comfort for the Colson family as this husband and father, who was a warrior for Christ, leaves this race to worship at the feet of the Savior
Prayers being said.
Chuck Colson is a great man.
Long ago he settled the question of who his Master was.
His Master compelled him to remember those in prison, and he did so, helping untold thousands of prisoners, their wives, and their children.
His Master will be promoting him to Heaven soon.
His Master gave him forgiveness and a new direction in life. This direction helped many to see the Master in a real and personal way.
Thank you, Jesus, for saving Chuck Colson. We know that “Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints. “
We ask that you comfort his wife and children and all who You allowed to be touched by this man. Give them strength from You, in a supernatural way, to face the days ahead without him.
Thank you for the promise of reunion after death, because You defeated death and Hell for us. Praise be to Your name, forever and ever.
I so hate hearing this. The sad thing is it sounded like he was making good progress after the surgery; even talking. I wonder what happened?
Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car cest à Toi quappartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Oh no. Prayers for him; he was a real warrior but full of charity. I loved reading everything he wrote.
Prayers for Dear Brother Chuck.
He was a profound influence upon me in my early Christian Walk.
Wow, this is sad news indeed. I pray for Chuck and his family.
