Ed Fields

Westchester Chapel Family and Friends, 
Our dearest brother, Ed, has entered fully into the Presence of the Lord. This morning (August 18), the gates of heaven opened before this one so beloved on earth and in heaven. The Lord has received his beloved son Ed with rejoicing. We, on earth, shall miss Ed so much until we see him again. 

 Please join us in praise and prayer. 

Blessed Lord, how can we praise you enough for what you have done? How can we thank you enough for the gift of Jesus your Son? Hallelujahs without end for Jesus. Praise to Jesus who had Ed and his beloved family in His Mind as He hung on the tree and rose from the grave. How can we say thank You for making the way for Ed and for us all to live with You forever? Endless praise be to the blessed Father, Son and Spirit. 

Lord, we also bless you for the faithfulness that came from You and lives in Ed’s loving wife Jan. She has mediated Your faithful Presence to Ed. Bless you for Ed’s faithful family: Melanie, Stacie, Robbie, Marcelo, and Paul. How beautifully they served Ed at Your direction. Please bring the comfort of the coming Kingdom to this beautiful family. It is written, “Blessed are the mourning ones for they will be comforted.” Bring wholeness and healing to each one. Bring healing hope and comfort to Jan who has been with her life partner Ed for more than fifty years. 

May grace and peace be multiplied to these beloved ones. In Jesus’ Name, Amen and Amen. 
Pastors Jim and Linda
