Steven Curtis Chapman’s five year old daughter was killed today in a tragic car accident. Read the story HERE.

Quote from an article: “One of contemporary Christian music star Steven Curtis Chapman’s six children was killed this afternoon when she was struck by a car said to be driven by her teenage brother in the driveway of the family’s Williamson County home.

Heartbreaking.

The body of Christ was made for such a time as this. Pray, my friends. Pray.

Oh dear God,
Be near. Be so near. I pray the Chapman family would feel Your REAL and TANGIBLE presence tonight. I don’t know, God. I don’t know how to pray right for this. But I know Your heart hurts for them too. So whatever that thing is that You do when someone is really hurting and You step in and hold them, do that now. Speak gently, but loudly, to that teenage son- remind of Your everlasting love. Be louder than the voices of discouragement and death in his head. Be thou his vision. Comforter, do Your thing. Comfort. Hold. For a long time. Give us the right words to pray, God, as we seek You on behalf of this family. Be near.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
