Give Praise to Jehovah for James and his Good Works

Thank you for this day that we have been allowed to come together safely in acknowledging the passing of our brother James Speed Bowers Jr. who was awake October 1, 1945 and fell asleep September 6, 2019.

We thank you for allowing all who loved him to come together in peace and love.

(John 11:36)

We give all honor to you Jehovah, for without you there would be no us. This is your day to help us rejoice and give praise for all the good works you allowed our brother James to accomplish during his time here in this world. Thank you for allowing our brother James to be a father to those who did not have a father.

(Psalm 68:4-6)

Thank you for allowing  James to be an ear to those who needed someone to listen.

(James 1:19)

Thank you for his insight when it was needed. Thank you for his encouragement when it was needed for advancement.

Thank you for the humor displayed when we needed to laugh. Thank you for the quiet moments of reflection when he valued family over everything else. Thank you for the gifts you allowed him to give when he did not have much to do so.

(Acts 20: 35) 

Thank you for releasing any and all pain felt during his last hours. Please forgive him and keep him in your loving arms until we are able to meet again in paradise.

Thank you Jehovah and bless all who have sacrificed and openly given their time in assisting our brother when he needed it most. (Proverbs 11:25) 

Give Praise to Jehovah for Family, Thank and Renewal

Thank you Jehovah in providing comfort to James' surviving family members. His loving, faithful and devoted wife Myrtle Leona Bowers. (Proverbs 31)

His two daughters, Stacey Renee (Gen. 50:1) and Colby Charlene and his Grandson Elijah Jordan. (Col. 3:18-20)

Praise be to his siblings Adam, Jane and Patricia, their families and the endless loved ones, extended family and friends who have shown their support and have had the joy of sharing in his life.

Thank you for medical and funeral professionals who worked to their upmost

diligence in making James' transition comfortable and honorable.

On this day Jehovah, please keep us in your heart, reminding us of the good we do and give us the patience to love and embrace one another in providing comfort at this time of sorrow for our brother James and all who have fallen asleep before him and all who will sleep after. 

Please forgive our faults and enable us to start friendships anew as you who continually refresh our hearts and minds to better serve you. (Rom. 14:10-12)

We ask this of you in your son Jesus Christ's name. Amen.
