Our desire is to honor Christ in our painful loss and to honor the precious gift that He gave us in Ethan. Today, we pray that God’s Holy Spirit will bring you comfort, the same comfort that we ourselves have received in answer to your prayers.
Ethan believed with every fiber of his being that Jesus was the wellspring of life and desired that others would know the same love that he experienced in Jesus Christ. Today Ethan would have wanted to give you that same opportunity to know the love of God by starting a relationship with Him...
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved.” Ephesians 2:4-5
If you would like to put your trust in Jesus, you can pray this simple prayer:
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are mine.
1 Peter 1:3-4
He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ…
