Sadness...please pray.

Dear Friends,
Today I got one of those texts that you never want to get. 

It was from the SR High Youth Pastors from the church I work as Jr High Youth Pastor. 

One of our 17yr old girls who had a premature baby girl "K", this past December, who had finally gotten home about 2 weeks ago.  K who seemed to be doing so well in terms of growth, and health finally, died last night in her sleep.

They believe it to have been SIDS at this point. 

But regardless of the why "K's" mom and family are hurting pretty badly right now. 

I don't understand the why in this. 

And I do believe that God does have a plan. 

That he is still in control in all of it.

But that doesn't make it any easier on them right now. 

Please pray for "K's" family as they go through this very hard time right now. 

Please pray for wisdom for all of us that are going to be working with any of them.  Especially the Christians in this.  That we will have HIS words to speak, not our own. 

Pray for her momma that she will cling to Him in all of this.  Pray for the depression that I'm sure may come. 
Pray for all of that.... and however you feel God leading you to pray.

I know that there is nothing I can do on my own for her or any of them.  But I pray that God will use me in a way to bring comfort to them even if it is in some very small way.

Personally I just feel heartbroken for all of them. 

Even though I know that little "K" is in the arms of our loving Father right now.
