Death Is Not Dying: A Faith That Saves

Watch this amazing testimony given by Rachel Barkey to the grace of God in her life as she prepares to die of cancer, leaving behind a husband and two young children.

Lord, we do pray that in Your grace You would heal her. For we know that You are able. So we ask You to do it for Your name's sake. But thank You that even if You don't, she has shown so many of us what it means that to live is Christ and to die is gain. Thank You that she has shown us by what kind of death we most glorify You. May her reward in heaven be great as she comes into the presence of Jesus. I pray that You would make me like her, in the way she so faithfully and beautifully imitates Jesus. Thank You for this precious daughter of Yours and the glory of Christ that shines through her face. In His precious name, Amen.
