PLEASE PRAY!

I just found out that Steven Curtis Chapman's youngest daughter, Maria, was killed yesterday. Please pray for the family during this heartwrenching time. One of her teen brothers was driving down the driveway and apparently ran over her. It was an accident and will be so hard for him to live with, I'm sure.

Steven Curtis Chapman has done so much for the adoption world. He and his wife, Mary Beth, has been strong advocates for adoption for many years and have also adopted 3 daughters from China. They have an organization that offers grants for adoptive parents called Shaohannah's Hope.

I've read about children being run over by family members backing up or driving in their driveways. This is awful! Please watch your children. This can happen so quick and have devasting consequences.

Father God, we lift up the whole Chapman family to you right now. Be their comfort and balm. Surround them with Your tangible presence through loved ones. I ask that you would especially be with the brother Lord, as he deals with his intense pain and emotions. Be with them Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Please join with me in praying for them...continually lifting them up. Here is a link to the newspaper article
