View Full Version : Prayers please!

I just got notice that a long-time friend of ours, a groom's man at our wedding even, passed away last night.

In 2000 he tested positive for HIV and got very sick and almost died. Apparently he was living in denial for a very long time and only faced the truth when he got sick. He seemed to get better and was managing his illness with medication. We haven't heard from him in quite a while, and had no idea that he was sick again.

It's the STRANGEST thing, but I fell asleep last night (about 2:00 am my time which would be 5:00 pm back home) thinking about Tim and his wonderful mom whom we'd gotten to know quite well. Out of the blue, just thinking about him and wondering how he was doing. The email said that he passed away yesterday evening.

If you pray, please say a prayer that God somehow bring peace to his family and friends. I hate that we can't be there for support.

Thanks for listening!

Oh - God Bless him, Laura!
How neat that you had thought of him then...

I am sorry to hear about your loss. Sometimes God puts the thought of someone in your head just at the time we need to be remembering. I will say a prayer for his family.

02-10-2006, 03:03 PM
Laura, I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. I will defintely keep your family & his in my thoughts & prayers.

02-10-2006, 03:05 PM
Oh no Laura!! What a terrible loss! May God grant his family and yours peace in this sad time!

02-10-2006, 03:11 PM
Oh, Laura, that's so sad! He and his family will be in my prayers for peace at this terrible time.

02-10-2006, 03:12 PM
I'm sorry for your friend. Count me in for prayers.

02-10-2006, 04:00 PM
I do pray, and I will definitely say one for you, him and his family and friends. That was God speaking to you last night. (IMO) Ironic how that works. Hugs, Laura!

02-10-2006, 05:53 PM
Aww, I'm so sorry to hear this. God has so much compassion for hurting people... I'll pray for comfort for them (and you too).

This is so sad! I am so sorry to hear about his, they will be in our prayers here. Take Care and be strong.

Laura - I am sorry for your loss and my prayers and thoughts go out to you and your friend's family during this difficult time....

02-10-2006, 06:17 PM
Oh my! I'm so sorry to hear that you got such terrible news. Of course I'll pray!

Father God, we ask that You would give this family Your peace and Your strength. I pray that Tim is with You now and that through his life and death that others would know the greatness of Your hand. Father, I pray that those that knew him will now know that Your shoulder is right there for them. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Awww... Laura! Ya know, I fully believe that God put him on your mind on purpose... nothing happens by coincidence. My dh is extremely sensitive to God's spirit when it comes to ailments/death. Soooo... whenever someone comes to his mind, he has learned to PRAY for them. B/C 9 times out of 10, they really needed it! Saying a prayer right now...

02-10-2006, 07:23 PM
Yes, I know it was God who put Tim on my heart last night. That also happens to me often. I know that when I either dream of or think about someone I'm not in contact with on a regular basis, that I need to pray for them and get in touch with them.

Thank you all so much for you prayers and thoughts! Your support means the world to me!

02-10-2006, 07:39 PM
Wow, Laura, I'm praying for your family and his too. How neat that God put him on your heart at that moment. I'll be praying for peace in the hearts of his family and friends.

02-10-2006, 08:36 PM
I'll be praying for him and his family. Sorry to hear about the loss. I'll be praying for you too (HUG)
