Prayer for the Chapmans

Anyone who as ever listened to contemporary Christian music is familiar with the sounds and lyrics of Steven Curtis Chapman. Some who know him also know about his family and their incredible love and support of international adoption. The Chapmans have three biological children and three whom they adopted from overseas. I received a link to the news article detailing the tragic event that has occurred with this dear family: their youngest daughter was killed accidentally when one of the teenage sons was driving down the family's driveway. Such a tragic story, and I have been amazed by how quickly this gut-wrenching news has already spread. Even under the comfort and hope of God's sovereignty there is still a time to weep and mourn. May we be in intercession for the Chapmans today and in the days to follow as they grieve.

It is very sad. Makes you stop and think how short life is and how God has us all in His hands and our time is not our own. Still praying for comfort for that precious godly family.
