Prayer Needed!

It is with a heavy heart that I ask each of you that will to please pray for my family. My wife suddenly lost her father today. He was a kind and compassionate man who loved his family and loved God! This is a big loss for us!

Please pray for our strength because this is the fourth loss of a loved one between us since mid-summer. This will be the third of the four funerals in which I will be officiating and preaching.

I really appreciate the community of Believer’s that we have here and I do not take any of you for granted! Please check in on Jill’s blog at Owning Your Life to let her know someone is praying for her.

Blessings to each of you!

  1. Hi Sebastian. Just to let you know you and your family are still in my prayers. May you all be strengthened in the power of the Lord as the landscape of your lives has changed and new adjustments are being made. May the lines fall to you in pleasant places and may you be comforted though so much has changed. Thank you too for all those who prayed for me as well. I’ve had a miracle-turnaround. So profound. We are moving into new seasons with the Lord and standing by one another is precious sweet perfume.
