A ministers heart kindled with love to Christ. He devoted all his life for the salvation of those who met him. The minister fell sick and was compelled to stay in bed. One of his friends visited him and said, You were very active in serving God, so why God permitted that you fall sick?

He answered with inner peace, I was serving God, the thing which I didnt deserve; now, Im fulfilling the will of God, which is greater. Therefore, I praise and thank him all the days of my life.

Ministry is indeed the great work of God but fulfilling the will of God is considered greater by His honest servants. This was apparent in the life of our beloved Father Pishoy Kamel. He served by bearing his sickness thankfully more than the service he offered all the days of his life. His thanks to God still consoles many people especially those who are sick with cancer.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: لأتمم إرادة اللَّه.

With Your Holy Spirit, I will work till the last breath.

With Your Holy Spirit, I thank You fulfilling Your Holy Will.

Teach me: What do You want me to do?

Lead my life.
