Isaiah 53:4-6 NASB
Surely our griefs He Himself bore,
And our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.
Below is an email I received from Chelle for Wayne:
Just wanted to give you a bit of an update on Wayne. I spoke with Marge this afternoon and she has asked if we would pray that if the LORD isn't going to heal Wayne that HE would take him home so he doesn't suffer any longer. She told me while praying with some friends, that went to visit them, Wayne ended the prayer by saying, "JESUS, please take me now. I'm ready to go." Wayne has been on hospice for a week now and getting increasingly worse. He is agitated most of the time, sleeping a lot, confused and always in pain even with the meds. Really not himself at all.
Not sure what else to say other than thank you.
Please pray for Wayne and Marge that God will intercede in this situation and His perfect will to be done.
We don't understand why Wayne must suffer so. We just can't see good in suffering, but I know Lord that he loves You and he is ready to meet you. Please Lord touch and heal Wayne. Please Lord remove this pain from Wayne. Please Lord comfort Wayne and Marge and give them Your perfect peace. Wrap a hedge of protection around them and surround them in Your love. Lord, even now you can restore Wayne to complete health here on earth, I trust You. In the name of Jesus Your perfect will be done, amen.
John 16:24 NASB
Until now you have asked for nothing in My name;
ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.
