Pray for a Daughter and a Father

Just a quick note to ask you to pray for my sweet friend, Emmy. She is one of the most lovely women I have ever had the privilege of getting to know. I aspire to be like her in so many ways. She is full of grace, love, and compassion.

I have been fortunate to walk with her, a little way, through the last few months of her father's cancer. Her dad is one of those people that change your life, just by meeting him. His heart is full of love - just like his girl. But, the time is here. The cancer is robbing her of her daddy. He is close to the final goodbye.

We rejoice that finally the pain will end, but for those that remain, and his baby girl, the grief is coming to a climax. Please pray that she will be able to get to her father before he is gone. Pray that the plane tickets come through ASAP. Pray that her dad has the strength for one last goodbye - in person. Pray that he will be ready and she will be ready to let him go. Pray that the God of all comfort will comfort them now.
