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.

Dan, We will be praying for you and your family. I cannot even to begin to imagine the pain and heartbreak ya'll are going through.
Hopefully time and God will ease your pain.

Dan,

I cannot imagine the shock and loss that you are going through. I (and everyone else in my household) will be praying fervently for God's strength and comfort for you and your family.

Dan, may God console you and all your bereaved family and friends. I know nothing we can say will make it easier, but know that our hearts go out to you and you all will be in our prayers.

While it is overwhelming now, when you are ready, I am sure we all on the forum would love to hear some fond memories or touching stories you and your wife share of your daughter, either recent or from early childhood. Although taken at such an early age and arguably before the prime of life, may her memory be an everlasting tribute.

Words fail me. God is with you for He also knows the pain caused by the loss of a child. In time, may you gain comfort, strength and peace from his presence. I am praying for all of you. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Thank you for all the kind words. We are getting by day to day with the help of our friends. The prayers from you all are greatly appreciated. Here is one of my cherished moments with her.

Dan, I just saw this thread and there's no way to adequately express the sorrow I feel for you and your family. As an attorney and former COP, I've seen much death and grief and nothing compares to the loss of your child. The Lord gives all of us gifts to use for His kingdom and there have been countless times I've wished mine was the gift of healing. This is another such time.

As others have said, there are no words that can reduce your grief even the slightest, but know this. You have brothers and sisters in Christ that are praying for and your family and who share your grief and sense of loss, though obviously not to the level you are suffering.

Father, You know the anguish and despair Dan and his wife are suffering. You have promised that all of Your children who call upon You in times like these will be comforted. We call upon You now to honor that promise oh Lord and turn their tears to smiles confident in Your saving grace and the knowledge that this family will be reunited in days to come. Amen.

Chas.

Dan,

My deepest sympathies for your loss, my prayers go out to you and your family.

I would like to share a poem that a dear friend of mine read when she needed strength after she lost her daughter.



"Dearest Mommy and Daddy"
Author unknown

When you wonder the meaning of life and love
Know that I am with you
Close your eyes and feel me kissing you in the gentle breeze across your cheek
When you begin to doubt that you shall never see me again
Quiet your mind and hear me
I am in the whisper of the heavens
Speaking of your love.
When you lose your identity
when you question who you are, where you are going;
Open your heart and see me. 
I am the twinkle in the stars, smiling down upon you.
Lighting the path for your journey.
When you awaken each morning, not remembering your dreams,but feeling content and serene,
Know that I was with you, filling your night with thoughts of me.
When you linger in the remnant pain, wholeness seeming so unfamiliar, think of me.
Know that I am with you, touching you through the shared tears of a gentle friend easing the pain.
As the sunrise illuminates the desert sky; as that breathtaking brilliance awakens your spirit, think of our time together-all to brief but ever brilliant.
When you were certain of us together, when you were certain of your destiny, know that God created that moment in time just for us.
I am with you always......
