Requiescat Barbara Fuller Roberts

For several months you have been praying for my cousin Barbara. She died this morning at 6.52 a.m.

Two deaths in my immediate family in two days is just too much.

Barbara's death is hard for me because had rejected God's mercy. Bobbie was raised in the church but left it after she married and, to our knowledge, thereafter never spoke God's name except in cursing. Please pray for Bobbie's soul that she may accept the grace and mercy of God.

Let us pray:
    O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of thy servant Barbara, and grant her an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, on God, now and for ever. Amen.

    Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray thee, with Jack, Cindy, Mike, Kimberly, Timothy and all their families, and all those who mourn, that casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Eternal Rest grant unto her, O Lord,
And light perpetual shine upon her.
May his soul, and the souls of all the departed
though the mercies of God, rest in peace
