At around 14;57pm yesterday, Eric Payee who follows me on Facebook wrote; “Heavenly father, I seek wisdom in You this day. Keep me away from harm and all disturbing thought. Let my mind be at peace for this new day, in Jesus name, Amen.” And he died a few hours later after he complained of dizziness during a boys-boys football match in Ghana, a close friend has said.
Eric was full of fun on Facebook but what made him standout aside his jokes was his seemingly identical prayers to God on his timeline, always starting with “Heavenly father”.
On June 12, he wrote: “Heavenly Father, be with me, this day. Keep me in every way that I go and provide for me whatever that I am in need of in Jesus name, Amen”
And on June 7, he again wrote: “Heavenly Father, I commit this day into your care. Let me listen intently to your word this day and glorify you in all I do in Jesus name, Amen.”
Last night around 10pm, friends say he was rushed to the hospital after he complained of dizziness and shortly died.
Though many of his friends are confused as to whether exercising is even good at all for body, words of condolence have for now shadowed that conversation on his timeline.

“Someone wake me up from this dream. I need someone to tell Eric Payee to talk to me. Just insult me keke so i know its you,” Nkechi Asante said.
Maame Kissiwaa commented: “Eric Payee if this is some joke u better stop playing. Wtffffffffffff merrrhn.”
“I saw you just yesterday Eric Payee and today you gone. Life is indeed too short. R I P Bro ???,” Muzic Lumor added.
Once again, another young man has died within a blink of a second and friends and family are shocked–a reminder that our time on earth is short and more painfully, uncertain.
How can someone put up a Facebook post at 14:57 and die at around 10pm, uncaused by any accident?
That’s what life is: you will never know what your last post will be on Facebook or last activity will be on this earth and that’s why you should make the best of each moment because it could be your last.
Rest in Peace Eric–if any heavenly father exists, you probably know by now.
