Prayers Please

Today I'm sending out a prayer request.

My nephew, age 17, was in a terrible auto accident this past Saturday night. He was with 5 other friends, all seniors in high school. Three, including the driver, were pronounced dead at the scene, one died later at the hospital. Another boy and my nephew are in the hospital. My nephew has a punctured lung, broken ribs, 2 broken cheek bones, and a broken shoulder blade.

I ask that you pray for the families who have lost their children. And please pray for healing for my nephew and his friend. This will be a long hard recovery for all involved.

You are sooo right. It is a long road to hopeful emotional recovery. The physical recovery seems so much easier. My family has experienced this .. long, long ago .. yet the memories are as though it is fresh. I'm on your Prayer team. Prayer DOES affect outcomes!
