We lift in prayer Pastor Don and Pat Klepzig (retired, Shumway, IL), along with their extended family.  Their sixty-four year old son, Scott Klepzig, died unexpectedly around 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, after being released from the hospital following a procedure to place stents in two of his coronary arteries. 

Eternal God, send your Holy Spirit upon those who now entrust their loved one to your everlasting care.  When sorrow darkens our lives, lead us all to look to you, remembering the cloud of witnesses which surrounds us.  Grant that we who remain for a time may trust your goodness, rejoicing in your grace and in the sure expectation of a joyful reunion in your immediate presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Bishop John RothComment
