Family friend needs prayer badly....

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

Family friend needs prayer badly....

#1

Post by The Annoyed Man » Mon Apr 22, 2013 11:26 pm

My wife and I just got the absolutely horrible news tonight that a former coworker of my wife's, who had remained a friend after she retired, was accidentally killed yesterday by her own husband. David was backing his car out of their driveway when Gloria suddenly came out of the house and walked over to his car, but he didn't see her. She was unsteady on her feet and walked with a cane because of severe back problems. She stumbled and fell into the driveway as he was backing out, and David ran her over, killing her almost instantly.

My wife saw Gloria about a year ago at an office reunion and said that, even with a cane, Gloria was really unsteady on her feet. She said it's easy to understand how Gloria could have tripped and gone down without David seeing it happen as he was backing out. Poor David is just devastated.

Please pray for David, and for their daughter who just had their first grandchild. I don't even know how I would live with this if I did this to my own wife, even accidentally. I would want to die.

Lord, I pray for David and his family. Give them the peace and comfort that only you can provide at time like this. I pray a hedge of protection around David as the enemy begins to attack with guilt and depression. I pray most of all Lord that during this difficult time that David and his family keep their eyes on you and in their grief and sorry they do not lose sight of the ultimate prize.

Amen. I don't know how anyone could survive this without the Lord's hand in comfort. What a horrible tragedy!

A friend of mine ran over his child the same way, backing out of his driveway. The todler lived fortunately. Here is where we need government to act. Mandate backup cameras on new vehicles. My wife's car has one and it is so reassuring to be able to see in that blindspot that I can't see in my other vehicles. Government can do something that will save lives and this is at very little expense. I usually do not want any government mandates but on this I do. I pray for your friend as the misery of this tragic accident is more than I could comprehend if it were me.

Thanks Longtooth! TAM our family is holding theirs in our thoughts and prayers. Hopefully they will be able to feel the comfort of our Father's loving arms!
