Hi Ange, upthread you mentioned it's not custom for you to pray for the dead. Do you mind explaining that more a little?

In my tradition, it's customary to give thanks for the life of someone who has died, and to pray for the needs of those left behind.  And maybe, straight after a death, to pray that God receive that person with love etc.  But praying for the dead is ... problematic... because it suggests that somehow they are in a state that can change.

Basically, because we don't believe in purgatory, we believe that once your life has ended, your eternal fate is settled.  So to pray for people who have died as if they need anything or somehow their blessedness could increase, it doesn't really work for us.

Does that make sense?

LS, praying for you and your family, for all your needs and worries.  Praying particularly that you would be encouraged and strengthened to see the value of all that you do.

I am having probably the toughest week of my life. Everything is just too much. My MIL rang me very concerned tonight as xh was ranting and raving about how nasty etc etc I am (he had a letter from the lawyer today).
All I want is peace and to be able to look after my children - the stress and tension is getting to me.
I have many people praying for the situation and myself but I'm having a very difficult time.  Please pray

Holding you, your children and all those around you in prayer, Struggling.  Praying that this will be the hard point from which things will improve for all of you.

Can I please ask for prayers/ positive vibes / Angel blessings to help me find my engagement ring?

I was cleaning (never ever going to do that again) and its gone.

I always put my rings and watch on my desk where the watch circles the rings and walked out yesterday morning to go out and the engagement one was gone - no pets or babies and DH hasnt borrowed it.  I hadnt worn them since Wednesday.

I lost the stone many many years ago and just 'knew' it was gone and this loss feels the same :(

The kids are going to help me look today and tomorrow,

and something a bit positive. I asked for prayers for my friend who was diagnosed with CIN.  She has had a rough couple of years, but next Sept will be 5yrs cancer free.   So thank you to all that thought of her at that time. <3

Oh, JBB, that's a loss that hurts.  Praying that it turns up, and that the time without it won't sting so much.  

And great to hear about 5 years cancer free for your friend!

Praying for the family of the most wonderful ED Dr who treated me a few years ago.  
He was tragically killed last night in a car accident.
And a Prayer of thanksgiving for his life - a person who followed Jesus' example. Rest in peace Dr Wong. 😢

Praying for a couple of dear people I know who are coping with life threatening and debilitating conditions.  Also for some precious adolescents and their families who are dealing with tumult.

And for Ianthe and other EBers who no longer post, but who are not forgotten.
