As Christian and I prepare for our trip to Steubenville tomorrow, we are saddened to hear that seven students on their way home from a cross country meet were involved in a rollover car crash. Four students were taken to the local hospital, two were airlifted and the seventh student passed away.
Please pray for these students, their families and their classmates.
Dear Lord, as we mourn the death of our sister Kelly in the car accident, comfort us with your great power of love. Strengthen us in faith so that we are with you forever. Eternal rest grant her O Lord and let your perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.
Look kindly on the others, God of Mercy, who are suffering as a result of this accident. Please ease their burdens and make their faith strong. May they always have confidence and trust in your fatherly care.
Father of Mercy, you always answer your people in their suffering. We thank you for your kindness and ask you to free us from all evil that we may serve you in happiness.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
