At Katoomba Easter Convention, Peter Adam showed us how to pray prayers of lament, faith, justice and hope while living on the Edge of Eternity. His prayers were shaped by the book of Habbakuk and served as a great reminder of the wonderful future we can look forward to when Jesus returns.
Good Friday Prayer - Prayer of Lament
There are many along the way who have inspired me at different times in different ways by their godly example or a word in season. "The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction." Proverbs 16: 21
Most recently, my dear friend Sam died of a thyroid cancer she had been fighting for 11 years. The cancer finally out ran the drugs. She loved the Lord Jesus and longed to die well. And she did.
"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" completely summed up her last years. Her desire to share the gospel with her family and friends right till her last breath really challenged my apathy and reticence in my own personal evangelism. She was a Head teacher who was loud, funny and confident but eventually she lost her voice through invasive surgery so she learnt to sign so that she could continue to sing the Lord's praises.
