Heavenly Father, the death of my dear Elwin Isaac has filed my eyes
wih tears and my heart with sorrow. I am distressed by the mysteries of
Your providence. As Your child I want so much to say, "Not my will, but
Thine be done," but at times I fnd it difficult to do. Forgive me and help
me, I pray You, by Your Holy Spirit, to accept Your ways as always best
Apply to my wounded heart the healing tough of Your precious prom-
ise, and let me soon experience its power. Teach me not to mourn as hose
who have no hope. Wipe away the tears from my eyes that I may be able to
see through the mist beyond death and grave, to the resurrection and lif
assured by he glorious victory of my Savior esus Christ over death and
grave. May the passing of Efin Isaac.remind me that L too, am but a
pilgrim and stranger on earth.
Grant me the grace tolove less and less the things that are material and
temporal, and to love more and more the things that are spiritual and
eternal. Teach me to number my days and to apply my heart to the wisdom
taught by esus Christ, that He is the Way and the Truth and the Life and
that no one comes to You but by Him. Amen.

9The family of 61win 3saac
wishes to acknowledge
with sincere appreciation
and gratitude loving prayers,
kind expressions of sympathy
and courtesis
from their many friends.
bd bless and keep each of you.
