Day 6: Orar por las personas enfermas – Pray for the sick


John 14:1-3 “Into my presence” (GW)

Many years ago, I experienced the power of believing that one come into God’s presence no matter who you are. Early in the morning I walked into his hospital bed, and he asked me “if I died today, do you think God will accept me”… if I close my eyes I can see his trusting, full of joy smile when I said “God has already accepted you,” I prayed and he began singing a new song, a song of praise to God.

That evening my patient died of complications of HIV Disease, a former drug addict, a man who has suffered rejection, a man who loved his wife and their children, a man with a past. A man who walked into God’s presence knowing that he was accepted, that there was a place prepare for him.

God, help me to continue trusting that you will always hold me tight into your presence. Amen.

“Así estaremos juntos.” (TLA)

Hace muchos años, experimenté el poder de creer que uno puede entrar en la presencia de Dios sin importar quién uno es. Temprano en la mañana, entré en su cama de hospital y me preguntó: “si yo muriera hoy, ¿crees que Dios me aceptará? … si cierro los ojos puedo ver su sonrisa de confianza llena de alegría cuando dije” Dios ya te ha aceptado, “oré y él comenzó a cantar una nueva canción, una canción de alabanza a Dios.

Esa noche mi paciente murió de complicaciones de la enfermedad del VIH, un ex adicto a las drogas, un hombre que había sufrido el rechazo, un hombre que amaba a su esposa y a sus hijos, un hombre con un pasado. Un hombre que entró en la presencia de Dios sabiendo que fue aceptado, que había un lugar preparado para él.

Dios, ayúdame a seguir confiando en que siempre me mantendrás apretada en tu presencia. Amén.
