It is with a heavy, but hopeful heart that I share with you that it appears our friend, brother, and founder will soon be home with the Lord. Chucks condition took a decided turn yesterday, and the doctors advised Patty and the family to gather by his bedside.

OH Father God, be ever so close to our dear brother in Christ. We want him here, but You oh Lord, know best. Your time is perfect.
Ping to prayer lists
I am praying, but just so sad that we’re losing a great one on this side. Tired of losing the good ones on earth. :(
Heartbreak here! God remain with Chuck Colson.
The earth will be losing a multitude of Christians soon enough. I hope you're among us! :)
Prayers for his family as well as the rest of us who will miss his ministry here on Earth. My his passing be peaceful as he joins our Lord at Home.
Prayers on the way up
This man’s life has meant so much to so many. He was stricken while at the lecturn... he went down with his guns blazing. An example for us all. May God continue to use his life as a benefit to others. A true giant in God’s kingdom.
So sad. I’ve enjoyed many of his books.
May God comfort his family.
Praying for peace and comfort for the Colson family as this husband and father, who was a warrior for Christ, leaves this race to worship at the feet of the Savior
Prayers being said.
Chuck Colson is a great man.
Long ago he settled the question of who his Master was.
His Master compelled him to remember those in prison, and he did so, helping untold thousands of prisoners, their wives, and their children.
His Master will be promoting him to Heaven soon.
His Master gave him forgiveness and a new direction in life. This direction helped many to see the Master in a real and personal way.
Thank you, Jesus, for saving Chuck Colson. We know that “Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints. “
We ask that you comfort his wife and children and all who You allowed to be touched by this man. Give them strength from You, in a supernatural way, to face the days ahead without him.
Thank you for the promise of reunion after death, because You defeated death and Hell for us. Praise be to Your name, forever and ever.
I so hate hearing this. The sad thing is it sounded like he was making good progress after the surgery; even talking. I wonder what happened?
Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car cest à Toi quappartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Oh no. Prayers for him; he was a real warrior but full of charity. I loved reading everything he wrote.
Prayers for Dear Brother Chuck.
He was a profound influence upon me in my early Christian Walk.
Wow, this is sad news indeed. I pray for Chuck and his family.
I’ve always respected Colson for his active repentance for the things he did under Nixon and for his ministry that resulted.
A good man. May the Lord’s peace be upon him and his family.
Prayers for Chuck, family and friends.
“As Chuck would say, Remain at your posts and do your dutyfor the glory of God and His kingdom”
the stuff that they get away with now would make Coulson worthy of promotion these days
His promotion is very close. The evil ones got their promotion here which last for just a moment, his is forever.
Chuck Colson was very instrumental in my own spiritual awaking about 12 years ago. I stopped listening to sports radio shows and tuned into WYLL. I HAD to listen to his 2 minute Breakpoint spot every morning just before 7am.
Always provocative, concise & right on target for God’s Truth. WYLL stopped carrying his Breakpoint broadcasts & I fell out of the habit of listening to him but I still love reading his books.
Truly a giant in Christian leadership!
Job 12:10 ~ In His hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.
May the Spirit of Comfort surround Chuck and his family, and all who love him, with the warmth of Christ's love. Amen ...
Chuck Colson has taken a turn for the worse. Please keep Chuck and his family in your prayers.
Thank you and God Bless.
Been a dedicated contributor to Angel Tree for years and I try to keep up with the daily BreakPoint, last was 04/05/12, “Resurrection Hope,” a repost from April 10, 2009. God Bless you Chuck and God Speed my friend.
Prayers going up!
A great man of God...
Prayers up for him.
Prayers for Mr. Colson and that his suffering be eased.
God be with Chuck Colson.
Dear Lord God, please help, save, and embrace your servant.
“The earth will be losing a multitude of Christians soon enough. I hope you’re among us! :)”
It took a minute to realize what you meant. Yes, methinks sooner rather than later.
And also prayers up for Chuck and family.
Dr. Thorne, I believe you are correct that we are the generation that will witness the return of Christ.
The man who boasted he would “walk over my own grandmother” to get Nixon reelected. Seems like he reformed after his prison term and went on to be a good citizen, but we should remember the bad along with the good.
Do we have to remember the bad right now?
when I read the headline to the ping . . .
my immediate feeling was that his time had come.
Sad for us. Good for him.
No more OThuga beleagured Republic for him.
Only THE KINGDOM OF OUR LORD AND KING HERE ON OUT for him.
He fought the good fight his latter years.
He bore much fruit.
Sigh . . .
Now for the rest of us . . .
Well said, Quix.
Amen. RAPTURE READY? I can't wait.
So much heartache for such a good man.
If you're a Christian, does God? Does HE "remember" your evil? If you're one of his... NO! So why should we make a "special effort" remember what this man did? You want to throw rocks at folks, look in the mirror first. This man was one of the people most directly responsible for bringing ME to Jesus Christ after I read his first book. I'll always be grateful for that.
Prayers for the Colson family as they face this change in their lives. May the Lord, himself, walk with them.
let there be Peace, and comfort for those he leaves behind for one day they will join him as we ALL will.
My prayer is that as he walks the lonely walk alone, through the Valley of Death, peace will be granted to him.
Soon he will be with is Savior:
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
calling for you and for me;
see, on the portals he’s waiting and watching,
watching for you and for me.
Come home, come home;
ye who are weary come home;
earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
calling, O sinner, come home!
Why should we tary when Jesus is pleading,
pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not his mercies,
mercies for you and for me?
Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing,
passing from you and from me;
shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming,
coming for you and for me.
O for the wonderful love he has promised,
promised for you and for me!
Though we have sinned, he has mercy and pardon,
pardon for you and for me.
See you on the Other Side, Chuck!
