 Please pray for me in one of my greatest tasks

Brothers and Sisters,

I need your prayers for a task that is quite daunting for me. The Senior Pastor at my church who has been the pastor there for 43!! years went home to be with the Lord this past Thursday evening at about 9:05 PM. He had been ill for a few years now and I have been preaching in his stead, as I have many times during his illnesses through the years... I have been associate pastor for several years now. But the task of preaching his funeral, although it was expected for some time, is still one that I am unprepared for... as Danielle said regarding her boss on another thread, how can you sum up a life lived so totally for God in a simple few minutes message.

He leaves behind a devoted and godly wife and two children and several grandchildren who certainly need prayer.

If you can find it in your heart to pray for all of us and this town as we lose another one of those old time faithful soldiers of the cross, Please do so.

Thank you so much.

Clint

You, your family, the pastor's family, the church and friends were just lifted before the Lord and bathed in prayer. God will give you the words to speak. Don't worry about that.

My inclination would be, you can't, so don't. I understand other factors enter here, but there are two ways that so much can be accomplished by being sensitive to the Lord. First, let the Lord determine the length of time. Second, the Lord can multiply the effectiveness of the minutes by the words he gives you.

 Re:

prayer support will be offered from here.

i have been thinking of this it reminds me of my brothers funeral last year, The Lord shows me it's like we are going to my brothers wedding even though he is not married. I know it will be hard to be in it. But I pray that the Lord Jesus will bless you to deliver what ever He prepare for this time of mourning.
Be at peace, God Bless

Brother,

Certainly I will be praying for you. May you find peace in knowing that He hasn’t brought you to this place unprepared and He hasn’t made you go alone.
