“Eugene Peterson has died and is now with the Triune God he has loved his entire life. Family says Message author joyfully looked toward heaven as he neared death, saying, ‘Let’s go.'”*
As you pray, you’ll know God’s presence. In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the angel of His presence saved them (Isaiah 63:9).
As you pray, you’ll believe God’s promise. He will swallow up death for all time, and the Lord God will wipe tears away from all faces (Isaiah 25:8).
Sin gives pain, shame, despair, and death.
So we pray, “Wash away my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin (Psalm 51:2).”
God gives peace, honor, hope, and life.
