Prayer request for Gonzo's brother-in-law
Gonzo

Posted on 01/31/2013 10:48:55 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Received a request from Gonzo. He says his brother-in-law, Noel Nightingale, is in the hospital and is close to expiring. God bless his soul, he's a good man. A Canadian navy veteran who fought for the United States.

Please address your replies to Gonzo.

Lord I pray for Noel in his time of need. I know not the situation, nor do I know about Noel’s life other than what Jim has offered, but he must be a good man or Jim would not request for us to pray.

To begin with I pray for the Lord to give peace to those who are in pain over the current situation with your brother-in-law Gonzo, and for you also. Ultimately we do not know what the lords plan is, so we are called to pray for His will to be done, on earth as it is in heaven. So Lord, if it’s Your will for Noel to go home, then it will mean his suffering is over, and we ask that you comfort his loved ones who will be left behind.

To leave this world and to be with God is the final result we all should, and many do, pray for. To be but a moment away from the door to God’s realm, is a blessing, not a curse. It means that his long suffering journey home is complete. A journey that we ourselves will not understand just how miserable it was, until we are in the glorious presence of our almighty God.

Sweet Jesus, comfort Noel in his time of need, and bless his family as they contend with his present state.

Amen

I already wrote out a prayer but I found a beautiful one online.

O God of resurrection, who raised Jesus Christ from the dead, we pray to You on behalf of Noel Nightingale who may be dying this day. May he know the comfort of Your presence, the power of Your love to give life even in the face of death, and the hope of your salvation. May he be blessed with the presence of family and friends to banish his loneliness and fears, the love of those who care for him to ease his pain, and the hope of always being remembered by those who he has loved. All this we ask through the One who died for us that we might live, Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

May God hold the loved ones of Noel and have mercy on him and blot our his transgressions and remember the love he gave, and bless them all with peace and the warm grace of the Father's love and desire for His children. Here is a reminder that this world is but out temporary home. We are really just passing thru. All of those who confess that Jesus is lord, will be saved. (Romans 8)Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death

Ecclesiastes 4
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What do workers gain from their toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13 That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.

15 Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.[b]
16 And I saw something else under the sun:

In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
17 I said to myself,

“God will bring into judgment
both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
a time to judge every deed.”
18 I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. 19 Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath[c]; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?”

22 So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them? ---- Godspeed, Noel Nightingale .
