As we continue to pray for the Johnsons, I thought of adding some new specific prayers to what was already written on the previous post. Here are some that I can think of:
1) Pray for their re-entry to Maui. They had a good time with JoAnne and her family in Virginia, as well in LA with Joe's family. They were all together as they grieve. Now that they are back on Maui, a new wave of grief will surface - please continue to pray for comfort and encouragement.
2) Pray for their re-entry to work. I am not sure when (I think Joe will be going back soon), but when they do, it would be very very difficult, it will be tough. Pray for clarity of mind. Also for understanding and compassion with and from their co-workers and clients.
3) Pray for their re-entry to church, fellowship with others and ministry. Even this will be difficult as they try to blend back and live a "new normal". Pray for us as well, that we will be compassionate and understanding as well as sensitive and caring in this very emotional year. Pray that we'd have the wisdom to know how to best offer sympathy; and that we will be comfortable surrounding them with love, not being afraid to mention Joey's name in conversations.
Please add in the comment section any other specific prayers you may think of. Thank you....
