Terrible News

I've just learned that our brother Mapko lost his partner, Nikolai, in a car accident on Sunday.
Please keep him in your prayers.

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of your servant Nikolai, and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Most merciful God, whose wisdom is beyond our understanding: Deal graciously with our brother Marko in his grief. Surround him with your love, that he may not be overwhelmed by his loss, but have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Heartbreaking news.

Prays for Mapko and the repose of Nikolai.

Pray for his repose, cause the dead have been known to get restless and come back and complain: "Hey, how about some candles? You know, the ones from the Ethnic foods isle in the grocery store? Light one of those and I'll be good, I swear. Oh, yeah, forget about the Reformation: buy me some prayers. Otherwise, who knows what could happen?"
Prayer for the dead-providing the illusion of comfort to people for generations at low, low prices.
