Having the last word — an obituary for Jesus

When they reach a certain age, some people begin to check the obituaries in the paper just to make sure they are not in there yet. Obituaries could be the last hurrah, a final chance to toot your — or your loved one’s — horn. Some suggest that we write our own obit before we die so that we can have the last word about ourselves.

Father, instead of complaining all the time over things gone wrong, give me a thankful heart and an appreciative spirit to be able to always give you thanks for all things good and all things bad. Keep my soul filled with praises to you O God, knowing you won’t put no more on me than I can bear. Only you know the duration of my soul. It’s all about you. Help me to get through in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Blessed are you, O Lord our God, King of the universe, and blessed is your holy name. Be with us in our time of need. We come face to face with that old deceiver we know as sin at every turn. With the strength and knowledge that comes from you, we find truth in your holy words. As we deal with life in today’s world, we must remember your words and consider the difference between right and wrong. They are found in the Ten Commandments. They are rules to live by. Thank you, O Lord, for saving us from sin and transgressions and the heartache they bring. In your blessed name I pray. Amen.
