The Chapman family could use our prayers



I just learned that Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth have had an awful loss to their family. This family has been such a huge influence in adoption. They have adopted 3 beautiful daughters from China and have poured themselves out to advocate for orphans. My heart just breaks for them.


Yesterday their teenage son accidently struck and killed his 5 year old sister with his car.


Let us lift this family up, that the Hand of God would be upon them and they would know His Power. Our family wept and prayed upon learning of little Maria's death and asked God if He would even raise this child from the dead. Lord, we know that nothing is impossible for You.


Please keep them covered, I can't even imagine their pain.

Dearest Kimmie. My heart is aching today for the Chapman family. I was sick when I first heard the news last night. All day, the Lord has burdened and grieved my heart for this precious family. I just can't imagine. I know God is able to comfort them, I know He is.
