Prayers

Friends, my father in law is dying after many years of physical hardship and difficulties. They expect the end to be this week. "Sic" flew home from visiting my family to be with his. I don't know what the next few days hold (other than traveling back to the upper Midwest myself, with the four chics), but I would appreciate your prayers for sic's family in particular, and my father-in-law's peaceful passing. They all have had a hard road and have dealt with it with much grace.

Also, just so you know, there are a few posts scheduled to run starting Friday...I put them together before things really got challenging around here. I'll get back to things as I can.

Peace, IC
Update: My father in law passed into eternal life Wednesday afternoon, amid a threatening tornadic storm that just finally blew away from their city. Even with the sadness and grief, there is real happiness for him; he "ran the good race" for sure. The funeral is next week. I know the family is grateful for the prayers, and they continue to be appreciated.

I lost my dad in January, after a sudden, but long ordeal.

Prayers for sure, will be with you.

My father passed away in 1994, and my mother in 2006. God gave them both His grace in their dying: my mother just took a nap, and passed from this life to the next in her sleep. Prayers for all, from Missouri. -- Rosemary

God be with you. I lost my dad in march. Even knowing he is at peace, I still miss him - as I'm sure you will your father-in-law.

I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

Catching up after moving from NJ to MD and found this but know that prayers for comfort are always on time. Prayers for you and yours in/with/through Christ our Lord.
