John on St. Martha

My thesis does not count as the's St. John:

"Jesus told her [Martha], 'I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?' She said to him, 'Yes, Lord, I have come to believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.'" (John 11:25-27)

Yes, Lord, I have come to Martha, I believe. I will never forget how you healed my Lazarus two summers ago--I thought he was dead to us after the accident at work, but he came back sooner than I dared hope. How I praised You then, You who restored sight to the blind and raised the dead to life again! Lord, I ask only this of You-- if it is Your will-- raise him higher still, to know, love, serve You alone. He searches for the truth, let him never cease to search until he finds it in you, who are the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Sweet Jesus, Jesus Love, I love You, I trust in You! Let not one of Your little ones be lost, especially not through my negligence, poor witness, and lack of fervor. Let all be saved through Your grace alone. By Your Love alone. Sweet Jesus, Jesus Love!
