[NOTE: My grandfather, J. Bryan “Breezy” Brasington entered eternity on 3/13/11.  His life was spent glorifying Jesus, and his death did the same.  This prayer was written the day of his memorial, after the service.]

Oh the gravity of it all!

What a life, what a love, what a Savior, what a charge and legacy.

O God, make me a servant like him, fruitful and faithful to the last; joyous and peaceful ’till the end.

What a need, what a darkness in our world, and only Your light can defeat it.

Use me, Lord.  O God, use me up and let me burn bright and clear for You, like Papito did…

…and still does.
