"And if I perish, I perish!"
It is easier to let go of our own lives than the lives of those we love. We are quicker to say, "If I die, I die," than, "If my wife (or husband, child, mother, etc.) dies, she dies."
You never said obedience was easy, but You did say You would give us the strength to obey through the power of Your Holy Spirit.
I lift up Pastor Robert to You, and all those You have asked to let go of the life of someone they love.
Remind us that we must separate now so that we can be united forever.
I ask this in Your name, Jesus,
