Pray for my family

Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

Pray for my family

Postby Dan20703 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 9:12 am

Please pray for my family. A few weeks ago we lost our 17 year old daughter to a horrible tragedy. My wife and I have been a total wreck since then. Our entire world has been shattered. Praying and crying are the only things that come easy these days.
There will always be prayer in schools as long as there are tests.

That is too much to bear, losing your 17yr old daughter. Keep your self strong. Think positive all the time. Time has the answer for your tragedy.

It is not ment to be that a parent outlive a child. I cannot even think about what I would do if one of mine were to go before me.

My prayers are with you and your family. God will heal your minds in time but she will remain in your hearts forever.

I would think that she is sitting at the right hand of God and they are telling you that you must go on with your lives.

Dan, I am so sorry you and your family are having to go through this. I am sure the pain is beyond belief, and I pray it eases soon.

Fortunately I have not lost a child, however I did walk my Mother away from my sister's grave. I could feel the pain she was feeling and it was all I could do to prop her up and walk her to the limo. I will continue to pray that God "props" you both up in this horrible time. I know you are hurting deeply yourself, and I trust you will realize your wife is actually in worse shape. Get help if you need to...for both of you.

Our household will continue to pray for you and yours.
Carry safe and carry when and where you can. I'm just sayin'.

I have known your pain and your loss. Now might be a good time to seek outside counseling. I know whereof I speak.

Goods luck and God Bless.

I am so sorry to hear that anyone has to deal with a tragedy like this. Sometimes there are no answers, but we will sure be praying that the Holy Spirit will bring that peace that passes no understanding.

When you enter a tragedy sometimes all you can do is just exist. We will be praying faithfully for you and your dear wife.
