I asked the Lord to allow mom to pass away in her sleep without pain.
She died peacefully in her sleep without any prolonged suffering. And in a second answer to prayer I was able to view her graveside service via live stream, which my niece unexpectedly set up the night before. “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness!” (Lam. 3:22-23)

I prayed last night for the Lord to give me a deeper knowledge of Him.
As I was reading in the book Steps to Christ, p. 88, I found these words in answer to my prayer: “If you would become acquainted with the Saviour, study the Holy Scriptures. Fill the whole heart with the words of God. They are the living water, quenching your burning thirst. They are the living bread from heaven. … ‘The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life’ (John 6:53, 63). Our bodies are built up from what we eat and drink; and as in the natural economy, so in the spiritual economy: it is what we meditate upon that will give tone and strength to our spiritual nature.” What an amazing answer to the hunger of my soul!
