Ruth, 97, is the mother-in-law of our friend and sister, Marge; and Ralph is Marge’s husband. Ruth is in hospice now, she is passing away. This family needs our prayers.
O Lord our God, ease and comfort your daughter, Ruth, who, after a long life, is preparing to come home to you; and ease the burden of her son, Ralph, and give him strength and peace, as he takes care of necessary things. And be with your servant, Marge, and all her family, to comfort them. In Jesus’ name, amen.
