Prayer Request by Yvonne Eagleton for her family

Posted: November 13, 2010 in Michael K Sanders

Father, we pray together tonight in complete faith in You and we know you will accept Yvonne Eagleton’s brother Donnie and her Father In-Law, both passing this week, home with open arms. We believe in your Word:

Matthew 6:9-10 “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

We know at Your appointed time and by Your will we are each called home and we trust and know it is by Your plan. When we have to face the most difficult times, we trust and find comfort in your Word:

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”

John 14:1 – 4 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.”

John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift — peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

Romans 8:35 – 39 (The Meaning of Life) “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? ……… No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow — not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below — indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord”

1 Corinthians 6:14 “And God will raise us from the dead by his power, just as he raised our Lord from the dead.”

2 Corinthians 1:3 “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.”

2 Corinthians 5:1 “For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands”

2 Corinthians 5:3 “For we will put on heavenly bodies, we will not be spirits without bodies.”

2 Corinthians 5:8 “We would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord”

Lord, bless Yvonne, her family and all of Donnie’s friends with the comfort and understanding only Your Holy Spirit can provide. Bless them with the knowledge of Your Word when our loved ones are called home:

Philippians 4:6 – 7 “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

1 Thessalonians 4:13 – 14 “And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.”

1 Peter 1:6 – 7 “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold — though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”

We pray together in complete Faith and Hope:

Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”

We have Hope that all of those close to Donnie are blessed with the knowledge of “Life” when we live today in Your Spirit.

In Your Name Christ Jesus we pray, Amen
