Thank you for taking the time to read my piece and respond. I can see in your writing your deep desire for others to experience the sense of peace and fulfillment that you have in knowing you will reside eternally in heaven with your Savior. Were you to find yourself in my hospital, in the last days and hours of your life, and I were called to minister to you as the hospital chaplain, here is the prayer I would offer to you:
“Oh Lord, we rejoice in You. You know everything about us. You know us from the tops of our heads to the bottoms of our feet. You know us and You love us because we are your children. Just as You bring us into this world you lead us out, when it is our time to return into your loving arms. Heavenly Father, we ask that You be here with your son Stan. Help Him to feel your love, and open Your arms wide to him. Lord, we know that it is only You who decides when we leave this world and we just ask that You bring Stan home to You when You are ready. Stan has been Your loving and faithful servant. He has abided by You. He has known only You through Jesus Christ. We ask that You lead him to his Heavenly home. As the Apostle Paul said our true citizenship is in heaven. We also ask that You be with Stan’s family when he leaves this world, that You protect them and keep them safe, that You care for them in all ways possible. Lord we know that all things are possible through You. All of this we ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Blessings on you Stan.
