Prayer in Memory of My Dad
Thank you for giving us a wonderful dad who was so blessed by you
The greatest of all was knowing and receiving you as his Savior and Lord
Dad showed us true riches come from living a life with you and your glory
With a generous heart, he loved, cared and gave to others with joy and happiness.
Thank you for pouring such wealth into dad’s life -
a pretty wife, 6 children, 17 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
May we cherish the wonderful memories he sowed into our lives
For they are invaluable treasures which you had put into his life for our benefits
Dad had such a cheerful, generous personality plus a booming laughter,
which will be greatly missed by all who knew him
In life, he trusted you and shared testimonies of your protection over him
May the work you started with dad carries on with us and others till we meet again
He left us a legacy of Christian living of love, forgiveness, and grace
Holy Spirit, strengthen us to go out to fulfill your commission as dad did
Comfort us Lord during this time of our loss as we lift our thoughts to you in prayers
Thank you for watching over dad in his last days esp. opening doors for Andrew’s visit
Saying a final farewell conveying our family love and you are with him too
So thank you once again, Lord, for dad who touched our lives in big ways and small.
They will be held close to our hearts to cherish and remember with love.
With all these treasured memories, we give you the highest praise.
In Jesus Name. Amen
With love to dad
Peter & Family
