Please pray!

Hi everyone!

Y’all are amazing on the prayer front.

So just wanted to ask that y’all be keeping my friend Monica and her sister Suan, who is also my friend, and their family in your prayers.

Last week something horribly tragic happened. Monica’s cousin’s son who is three years old was beaten to death by his son’s Mom and her boyfriend. And all because he went his pants. I will never ever begin to understand why stuff like this happens.

I can only imagine the grief the father must be feeling. There’s way more to the story, but this was so senseless and unfathomable. It was on the news and everything and the mother and boyfriend confessed and they are being faced with charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and child neglect.

I believe they are having the funeral for sweet Noah today. Would you please be lifting them up today??

There’s a special place in heaven for that sweet boy!!

Thank you!

Psalm 46:1 ” God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble “.

Praying right now, sweet friend. My heart is breaking for that family. I don't know how people hurt innocent babies and kids. How can you look into their little faces and do something so horrible? I won't ever understand, either.

Things like this are so totally hard to understand but one thing we know for sure through all the chaos,that sweet baby boy is SAFE in the arms of Jesus!

May God give His comfort to the family.

That is just incredibly heart breaking.

I think people do things in a spur of a moment & not even realize the end results - or what could even be a possible end result...

Praying for everyone involved... & know that child is with Jesus now, perfect & whole.

Oh, Lauren, that just breaks my heart. He was Maddie's age... and I can't imagine how someone could come to do such a thing. They NEED the Lord, that's for sure!

Oh man. This just makes me so sick and angry and just sad. Prayers sent that way and at least where he is at now, he will no longer have to deal with that abuse.

Oh my gosh, I am absolutely sick to my stomach reading this. A MOTHER beat HER child to death for wetting his pants! MY HEAVENS what is WRONG with people!!! I just can't even begin to imagine what that father is going through, the grief, the anger the rage or what on earth the mom was thinking when she was beating that defenseless child. It's absolutely horrific! Wow, I'm praying friend. Our hope lies in that sweet Noah is with Jesus now and won't ever be treated badly again. That poor child.

That story gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes. I am so so sorry. I don't even know them, but I will be praying. I don't know why those things happen. I have a 3-year-old baby girl and I just can't imagine why anyone would want to harm a child.
