Yesterday a dear friend of mine told me that his mother was going to die, within the year. It hit me hard, I can’t imagine my mother dying, in her fifties. I can’t imagine what my friend is feeling. What do you say in this situation? What do you pray for?

This passage in Matthew comes to mind:

Matthew 6:34 (The Message)

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Lord, your will be done, your kingdom come, here on earth, today, as it is in heaven.
