A Prayer for Audrey's family

Today I am posting, "Amazing Grace, My Chains are Gone." I know many of you know the song but it holds such a special place in my heart. It was a year ago this week that I sang it with two of my closest friends at the funeral of our friends daughter, Audrey. She was almost 3 years old. (She died in a very similar was as Steven Curtis Chapman's daughter. )

As shocked as our church family was at this tragedy, it could not compare to the grief these parents, Sarah and Bryan have suffered. I do not even begin to try to imagine what they have been going through this year. We have been praying and trying to offer support for them. But their faith in God has been a testimony to all of us.

I am posting this today, because I know that many of you who visit here on Saturday are praying women of faith. I ask that you pray for Bryan, Sarah and their daughters Caroline and Mary Claire. They need all the prayers we can lift up to the heavens for them.

On Sunday after church we will have a special prayer time for this family to encourage them and to let them know they are not alone. Would you join us to pray this Sunday and all week for them?
