But Martha, the dead man's sister, protested, "Lord, he has been dead for four days. The smell will be terrible."
Jesus responded, "Didn't I tell you that you would see God's glory if you believe?"
Holy God, please bless those that I know and love who now grieve because death has hit close to their homes. Bless them with faith so they can believe in the greater reality of Jesus' return in glory. Father, I also ask for confident faith for myself in that same greater reality. Give me courage, grace, and faith as I face my own mortality and the mortality of all those I love. In Jesus' glorious name, I pray. Amen.
