Please pray right now!

I just answered a phone call from a gentleman in our church. A precious family desperately needs our prayers. Their little 2 year old girl was killed this morning in an accident. Her older brother was backing the car up on the driveway and didn't realize that she was behind the car.
This family doesn't attend our church but their kids sometimes come to our Awana program. Steven is on his way right now to be with them.
I'm so stunned, I didn't know what else to do other than to ask you to join me in prayer.
Let's cry out to Jesus on their behalf.

Praying right now for comfort and peace, praying for your husband as he ministers to the family, and praying that this horrible accident brings them closer to Jesus.

Oh my Goodness! How tragic. What words of comfort could anyone say at a moment such as this? I am praying specifically for the family as well as for your husband that he can find the appropriate way to comfort this family.

Oh my word. This is anyone's worst nightmare, isn't it? I'm praying now for the family, for Steven, and for YOU... may the Lord give you the words and wisdom to know just how to support Steven and the family through this as well.

Just saw this. . . . my heart aches for the family and for that sweet older brother who must be beside himself. Praying that God will be very real to them and that the love and support that His people provide will draw them to Him.

As you know we've just had a large prayer answered so I'm expecting something big for this family! Big hand of God moving.
