Ephesians 1:9-11 “God has now revealed to us His mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill His own good pleasure. And this is the plan: At the right time He will bring everything together under the authority of Christ — everything in Heaven and on earth. Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything workout according to his plan.”
1 Corinthians 15:51-57 “Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye…we shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed… and this mortal shall have put on immortality… thanks be to God, which giveth us this victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Bless all of us with an understanding of Your Message and promise that Coach Paterno’s call Home is a victory You promise for all of us in faith. Bless his family and friends with the strength, courage and understanding only Your Holy Spirit can provide. Cover them with Your Love, Mercy, and Grace and comfort them.
In Your Name God our Father, Christ and Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit we pray, Amen
