A Prayer for the Eternal Rest of John Stott – UPDATE

O God, who by the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ destroyed death, and brought life and immortality to light: Grant that your servant John R. W. Stott, being raised with him, may know the strength of his presence, and rejoice in his eternal glory; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

(Jonathan Anderson on Facebook.)

This morning, Rev. John Stott, one of the fathers of modern Evangelicalism, went to be with the Lord in Glory. May he rest eternally with the saints!

Update!

HERE you can find an official announcement on the Christianity Today site. There are so many accessing it at this time that you may not be able to connect until later.

Billy Graham on the death of The Reverend John R. W. Stott, July 27, 2011: “The evangelical world has lost one of its greatest spokesmen, and I have lost one of my close personal friends and advisors. I look forward to seeing him again when I go to Heaven.” (Posted on Facebook)

  1. A humble man used mightily by God. Si noi romanii am beneficiat mult de pe urma scrierilor lui. Scumpa este inaintea Domnului moartea celor iubiti de El.
