Brothers and Sisters in Christ, there is a family here in our town in Colorado that desperately needs your prayers! I just received a call from my wife. She is a teacher at the Charter school our kids attend. There was a very popular 8th grade boy who attended the school. We don’t know the details yet, but this boy passed away last night.
He was a strong Christian. He had some medical problems and that might be the cause of his death. Please pray for his mother, father, and step-father! He was their only child. They love the Lord! The boy would always talk to my wife about his faith and he would always give my wife a hug when he would see her. Everybody at school called him “Big B” because he was a tall young man who loved playing basketball. There are grief counselors at the school and many kids are going home early.
There is great comfort knowing the young man knew Jesus. I have cried for this boy and his family and I will cry again. My heart is grieving with them, but yet we grieve with hope. That young man stepped into glory last night and He is in the presence of His Father who loves Him and will take care of Him for eternity. Thank you Jesus for ushering him into Heaven and taking him to the place you prepared for him.
“Lord, please be with his mother and comfort her heart. We don’t know why you took this young man at this time, but I pray that you bring great comfort and understanding to all of this. Please comfort his father and step-father and all of his family who loved him so dearly. Please be with every student and teacher at the school and pour out your Holy Spirit to comfort all of them. We lift them up to you Lord. Please bring Your healing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
I love you all in the Name of Jesus. Thank you for your prayers for this family.
“Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.”
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
