PRAYER for Steven Curtis Chapman's family

hey y'all... this is a sad post unfortunately. Yesterday Steven Curtis Chapman's youngest adopted daughter, maria, was hit in their own driveway by one of their cars. it was late at night, and somehow she wasn't seen playing in the driveway. it was a terrible accident.
she was in critical condition for a short while before she died. She just didn't make it. The chapman's are family friends of ours and this story is heartbreaking for us and many other friends and family to fathom.

Prayer and thoughts are needed for the Chapman family and would be appreciated.

YA'LL this is amazing: so right after it happened, when she had just died, steven got on his knees, put his arms around his son, will franklin's waist and cried out to the Lord "Please protect my son's heart, Jesus, heal him from any guilt that might creep in. it's not his fault! Please heal my son's heart!"

anyway, i'm doing fine, i never knew maria, but the chapman boys were good friends of mine, and their older sister emily was a really close friend of mine in highschool and at church. so its just so sad to know that their hearts are so wideopen and broken, but their family has truly been touched by God- their approach to this situation is ever trusting in the Lord, i would be so cynical if i was them, but they are so incredible.
i'm just so thankful for their strength, and their example to our church community and to the world!
