In the mighty name of Jesus, you are truly amazing. You are majestic. I want to thank you for your grace and your mercy. We know that there is power and deliverance in your name. We know that as women when we get an assignment, we will find the tools to execute it. Prayer changes things; it gives us hope, endurance, healing, and victory. Teach us, Lord, how to forgive others as we learn how to forgive ourselves. We know that we are daughters of destiny. As holy women, we learned to give you your written word back.
It is a privilege and an honor to have a servants’ heart. As mothers, we have influence and responsibility to guide our children, family, and our communities in the right direction.
I pray for every person that is reading this prayer that you will give them joy, peace, and more faith. We trust you, Lord, and we will never give up or give in. We will have balance and know our worth. We are the apple of God’s eye.
Cherish each day as a gift. We must encourage each other, love one another, and pray for this dying world. The race is not given to the swift, but the one that endures to the end. Your love knows no boundaries. Thank you for your son, your spirit of truth, and your blood. Thank you for your grace that covers each of us.
— Dr. Rufus King Young and Rev. Nehemiah Mitchum
FUNERAL SERMONS AND OTHERS
Relief is an easing of pain, anxiety, tension, burden or obligation. Waiting to be relieved is made possible when a hiding place is provided.
- A hiding place from our enemies. Psalms 17:8-9
- A hiding place from our troubles. Psalms 27:5
- A hiding place from envy and strife. Psalms 31:20
- A hiding place from workers of iniquity.
- Psalms 64:2
- “O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me …” Psalms 139:1-3
- “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man.” 1 Corinthian 10:13
Finally, waiting to be relieved is made possible when we are assured that we are being remembered by our loved ones, dear friends, and by God.
