Surrounded by Love

The song, "Falling in Love with Jesus," defines my everyday experience with the Lord. It truly is the best thing that ever happened to me. I pray this morning for three families whom I know who have had young loved ones murdered - two of the murders occurred in NJ (the cities of Rahway and Elizabeth respectively) and the third one occurred in Atlanta, GA.

God, we thank you for the lives of the young people; they knew you and loved you; and we know they are at peace with you. God, we ask now that you grant their families strength and courage as they grieve the tragic loss of their loved one. They may never know why their loved one was murdered, and so we ask you to grant them peace of mind. Surround these families with your love Lord, letting them know you are with them even now. God, we love you and adore you. We worship your holy name.

In Jesus name, AMEN.

  1. God, we also ask that you provide good grief counselors for each family and friend member so that they can be made whole and so that they can continue to fulfill the purpose for which they were created. In Jesus' name, amen.
