Brother Mark published this prayer for the family of Inez Overton on our facebook page on the 26th.

Inez Overton

Dear God, You are the creator of all that is, was, and ever will be. Each of us is a product of Your creativity and Your imagination. Each day I am in awe of all that You have done. I come to You today to give thanks for the lives of Inez Overton, who came to the loving arms of Jesus Christ only yesterday, to her husband to whom she was married for 70 years and is now grieving her loss, and to her son Clyde and his wife, Cindy, all of whom are now grieving over the loss of Inez.

Though we all know and understand that Inez is now with You, it is hard to fathom the loss we feel when a loved one leaves this world for Yours. May the memories of Inez bring comfort to each family member and friend, may thinking of the good times shared and the bad times overcome, bring joy to each of them.

I pray that Inez is now free of the infirmities of old age, that the joy of being with You and Your Precious Son, Jesus Christ bring a continuing smile to Inez, and that we all know that Your love will one day be shared with each of us. Please bless Inez and help the family through their grief. I pray these things in the name of Your precious Son, Jesus Christ.

Amen.
