The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Isaiah 57:1
Several years ago in a Sunday school class there was a prayer spoken for someone's grandma to be healed who was approaching 100. Now of course selfishly we don't want to let our loved ones go, but there comes a time it will inevitably happen.
I often think the prayer should be for comfort for the one dying and peace for the family members. No one says it is going to be fun, but if the deceased is a follower of Christ it is time for celebration, not sadness.
Sometimes with young people prayers for healing go up but for some reason God calls them home. We don't know His plans, purposes, or ways we only need to trust Him. Just remember death is part of life and we all will die. It is nothing to fear if you have asked Jesus to be your Savior.
PRAYER: Satan would love to keep me scared about dying. There is no need and it is wasted energy. What is to fear as long as I trust in you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
