Please Pray for the Steven Curtis Chapman Family!

I cannot begin to imagine what this precious close-knit family is going through:-(

MARIA SUE CHAPMAN, DAUGHTER OF STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN, DIES IN ACCIDENT AT FAMILY HOME
NASHVILLE, TN…5/21/08… At approximately 5pm on the afternoon of Wednessday May 21st, Maria Sue Chapman, 5 years old and the youngest daughter to Steven and Mary Beth Chapman was struck in the driveway of the Chapman home in Franklin, TN. Maria was rushed to Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital in Nashville, transported by LifeFlight, but died of her injuries there. Maria is one of the close knit family’s six children and one of their three adopted daughters.
More than five years ago, Chapman and his wife MaryBeth founded The Shaohannah’s Hope Ministry after bringing their first adopted daughter, Shaohannah, home from China. The ministry’s goal is to help families reduce the financial barrier of adoption, and has provided grants to over 1700 families wishing to adopt orphans from around the world. Chapman is a five-time GRAMMY ® winner and 54-time Dove Award winning artist who has sold over 10 million albums and garnered 44 No. 1 singles.

Lord I ask you to touch this family in a special way and comfort them during this tragedy, especially the older brother who hit her. I know how I felt 2 years ago when I caused our van accident coming home from a rough trip to YWAM, and everyone ended up being ok! Please show this young man how much you love him and help him to forgive himself in Jesus name.
