    My youngest daughter died night before last of acute liver failure at the age of 51, the result of 3+ decades of heavy drinking. I'd like to request prayers that she finds peace with The Lord, free of the demons - real or imagined - that haunted her in life.

    nmckenzie, so sorry to hear this.

    Father, I pray that nmckenzie's daughter placed her trust in You, our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, and that she is now in peace, free from the troubled waters of this life here on earth. Father, I also pray that you would be with her family, and surround them with Your peace and comfort.

    May the good Lord and His peace be with you and your family my friend. You will see her again one day.

    The Lord hears our prayers. The Lord transcends time. The holy Spirit will translates your groans to His perfect Words on your behalf.

    Lord, please bless this family:
    Numbers 6:24-26
    The Lord bless you and keep you;
    The Lord make His face shine upon you,
    And be gracious to you;
    The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
    And give you peace.
    Amen.

    Mac, though words at times like this aren't always easy, feelings conveyed must serve that
    lacking...Certainly, I won't tell you that I know how you feel...not exactly anyway...I rather
    have an inclination to remind you that, "I think I know", for I related to you all about the
    death of my son Johnny from the horrible disease AIDS...that was way back in mid-1996...
    My own dear wife of 60 plus years and Johnny's mother, Mary...in my grieving she used to
    tell me, "everything for a reason and a reason for everything"....Mac, perhaps the 'escape
    from her demons', as your coined expression so tactfully concluded...Mac, if your youngest
    daughter was 51, you and I have seen close to the number of winters and spring times....
    summers and autumns...I will say one of my simple, humble prayers for you...about your
    daughter....you...your family...not necessary that we know each other like the slapping on
    the shoulder when sharing a lighter moment...in our faith, no matter how weak or strong is
    that belief, 'until we meet again'....AMEN

    There was a song by Alan Jackson I was going to post...perhaps too soon
    but later try Alan's version WHEN THE ROLL IS CALLED UP YONDER...Chief

    May God Bless you and your family during this time. May her spirit be at peace, and may your bereavement be lessened with God's mercy.

    Amen
