With Your Permission, a Prayer For Jon Yenulonis
Dear Jon,
This prayer comes from me on behalf of your friends and brothers on Duckboats.net.
Larry Eckart, Pastor
Island Lutheran Church
Hilton Head, SC

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in time of trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” Psalm 46: 1-3

Dear Lord,
We pray for our friend Jon. We pray for life. We pray for healing, be that through the treatment of man or through Your own hand. We pray for Jon’s family, as they receive this news and adjust to this news. Anxiety, fear, anger, depression, hope, faith. In the convulsion of human feelings and experience, may Your love come through so that this family knows they are not alone, either now or in the future.

We know Lord, that we all must one day grow old and die. It is deeply disturbing when the “growing old” comes much more abruptly, when either we, or friends like Jon, are diagnosed with an illness that delivers “growing old” much earlier, much faster than we expected.

Give each person in this family, including Jon, the faith-born courage to face the future, whatever that will be. Help them and us to accept the ancient words of Jesus, “not my will but Thine be done.” And enable them to see those words not as fatalistic, but rather as the true source of hope and courage each day of our lives.

Then, and then only can we truly say, “God IS our refuge and strength, an ever present help in time of trouble.”

In the name of Christ our risen Lord and Savior.
Amen.”

AMEN Pastor Eckart!

I saw this earlier, and was literally brought to tears. Literally.

The outpouring of love, thoughts, well wishes, support and especially prayers, has been purely overwhelming. And to realize, all coming from most of you, whom I've never actually met is truly astounding.

I waited to respond, thinking I could perhaps come up with the right words to convey my true feelings and emotions. I cannot. I am simply at a loss for words. This truly is the best group of guys, (and gals, of course), around.

As I forge thru this "adventure", these well wishes will help carry me thru and over whatever obstacles I may encounter.

I sincerely thank you all, each and every one of you from the very bottom of my heart.

God Bless you all.

Jon
