Please pray

Some very dear friends of ours tucked their two boys in bed last night like normal, but this morning only one woke up. Their 4-year-old died suddenly in his sleep. An autopsy revealed nothing. Not a thing. His heart was fine. His organs were entirely healthy looking. He simply died.

His parents are devastated. We’re marginally better. Our kids played together. Life is simply fragile.

There is hope. This child is baptized. He rests with Jesus, waiting for resurrection.

Please pray for comfort, for peace, for strength, for the things we don’t know to pray for but which only God can give.

  1. Wow. We do not know the day or the hour…

    Prayers ascend, and thank the parents that they brought their child to be baptized.

    Stunning. How terrible.

    I can’t wait for my son to come home so I can hug him.

    Prayers ascend, indeed.
