Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted”
Hearts all over America go out to Michael Clarke Duncan’s fiancee Reverend Omarosa Manigault. The loss of her beloved has admittedly left her “devastated”, distraught and in need of prayers.
Death is a very real part of living and one of the most painful events one deals with in a lifetime. Some deaths, such as that of a child, parent or spouse, are harder to take than others. These losses cause, what seems to be, unbearable pain. But the Bible promises that God will not put more on us than we have the ability to bear. It also says that weeping may endure for a night but joy will come in the morning. God’s Word lets us know that when we are weak, He is strong.
As a minister, I’m sure Omarosa is familiar with these promises and may have even shared them with those mourning in her own congregation. But at this moment, she may find it difficult to even recall these scriptures let alone utter a prayer. It’s at these times that the prayers of others sustain those grieving. It’s the prayers of family, friends, and neighbors that help those in grief make it through such a painful time.
Pray for Omarosa. Ask God to comfort and strengthen her. Petition Him to grant her a supernatural peace that surpasses any human understanding. God is faithful and will honor His Word. As sure as Omarosa is mourning, she will be comforted.
