  • Father, we are heart-broken to see a young man killed senselessly. Cowards can only kill and destroy. I ask for constant comfort by the Holy Spirit for his young wife and children. Please provide for all their needs dear Father in the name of Jesus. Give them sympathetic and caring friends in Christ and assure them they will see Yousf again, very soon.
