Hello, my name is Lori. April 2nd I lost the love of my life Michael Ray. My husband broke his arm In December. In March I came home and he was very ill and grayish in skin color. I drove him to the hospital. The Dr said Michael had kidney stones.. They ran an MRI on him. They found he had a blood abnormality in his lower left lung. They did not mention this at all to either one of us. 10 days later my husband passed away from a pulmonary embolism which also caused him to have a massive heart attack. We attend Church twice a week. We both love our church body and everyone where we attend. My husband is friends with our pastor and many others in church. The entire body was in morning for Mike’s unexpected death. Our pastor was a visiting pastor on our first day. Pastor Luke lead my husband to his salvation. A year last June we were baptized by Pastor Luke and this year Pastor Luke put my husbands body to rest. I have the most wonderful church family. I know I am right where I am suppose to be. I am not the only one grieving for my husband. I know it hurts people to see me in so much sorrow. Since I noticed this fact I have kept my sorrow to myself other than in prayer. I didn’t even want to talk to God at some point in my morning. I started morning alone so I did not make people sad as well. I still weep when I open my eyes and weep when attempting to fall asleep. Everyone’s life goes back to normal except mine. I feel robbed and cheated and still can’t shake this devastation in my heart. Yesterday and today I woke up not weeping. There is a difference between weeping and crying. Never have I experienced a pain this intense. Then tragedy strikes again. My mom of 72 passed away in her bed speaking in toungs on August 11th. Father God has graced me with a strength I have never known. I was angry and demanding of God. How horrible of me right? I feel ashamed for cursing and demanding of God. He loves me so much that he graced me with overflowing strength because he loves me and forgives me. Understanding, I have learned it’s not for us to master. Focus on God and press into the word and get to know God better and all will be reviled in God’s time not our time. The two people who passed away in my life were people I cherished opinion and advice. Now I only have one to confide in and that is God.

Love Lori

Lori I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband and your mother. Let me just say that it is okay to be mad at God. He can take it. You can be angry and not sin at the same time. I am glad you have worked through your issues with God and are now striving to live for Him each day. I will pray that He will give you a peace that passes all understanding as you continue to work through the sadness of your losses. Once again, I am very sorry for the pain you are experiencing. While going through this trial ask God “What do you want me to learn through this?” Seek His wisdom and He will give you knowledge. Prayers are on the way! God bless you Lori!

I have been asked to pray at a funeral for my brothers father in law. I don’t think the family are Christians. I know people can accept God at anytime and hopefully he did but I’m not sure. Can you suggest what and how I should pray for this family. I knwo they had some drinking issues but the family loved each other very much. The eprson that died was 78. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Today 24 November 2015 we are mourning a gallant Zambian in the diaspoa who lived in the UK. Gershom Ndhlovu was a broadcaster on Crossfire Radio from the UK. He was a man of reason. He will be greatly missed. We are playing gospel music and praying to Godn for his family. I ask for prayers.

I lost my grandma Evans at the age of 99 on September 28th 2015 and it still hurts that she isn’t living anymore.

Please pray for me as I lost my classmate at 13 yrs old. He committed suicide. I am living in Jamaica and it is very hard for us to manage as a class

I have been asked to do the opening prayer at my uncle funeral, I have never done this before, but feel I was called even before they asked. my uncle died from cancer and did accept the lord in his final days, “thanks be to God”. please pray for my family for comfort and that I follow Gods will during my prayer. Oh yeah, many of my other family are not Christians.

My name is Paula and my church La Casa del Alfarero has recently experienced the loss of our dear Pastor Tony’s wife Millie Jimenez
We did expect it at all.
Everyone is so deeply sadden and heart broken
I would like ask for prayer for us. But not only us as a church. But for my Pastor Tony he is so heart broken it’s painful to see him this way. and his son Emmanuel and his wife Genesis.
It is a huge hit to our church
Pray we stay strong for our Pastor
Pray he can be strong
Thank you
God bless you

My father died 3 years ago and I can’t seem to think, look, speak about him without feeling like my heart is going to jump out of my chest, I know this is not how God intended for me to be (stuck) when I know he’s in the place with the almighty!

i would call your pastor about this Charissa. If your father has trusted in Christ, and so have you, he will be there waiting for you.
