    I am currently teaching a 3rd grade class at a Christian school. A young girl in my class ( 8 years old) Is having a very hard time dealing with the fact that that her dad( a local police officer) got shot in the face ( as you can guess a bullet through the face will mess you up) yesterday by a crack head. He is going to be OK, but this young girl is still afraid her dad is going to die. So please lift her and her family up in prayer. And i also ask that you pray for me that God will give me the words and strength to comfort and encourage them. Thank you

    David,

    Praying for this family to be covered with God's comfort and peace through this time as He holds this family close and brings healing to them all. May He give you wisdom in your dealings with this girl...
    And God bless you for opening your heart to teach the little ones about Jesus our Good Shepherd. Thanks for asking for prayers.

    Dear Brother David;
    Your young student will be put on a World Wide "Prayer Chain" by both my wife; Raven and myself!
    I will contact my people on the "Medicine Wheel" and Raven will contact her "Bards List".
    A candle will be lit and Prayers will be offered for the next several days and longer if needed!:smile2:
    Today's children have more than enough thrust upon them without having to deal with tragedy's like this too! :angry: <shaking head> I could say more but I don't want to get started on something I can't control alone in the World!
    However, we certainly CAN Say the Prayers and ask Our CREATOR to comfort this scared "Youngling" and ease her fears!:smile2: If I had my way; such macabre experiences, and worse, would never be allowed to happen to any child on our planet!!:angry: But, I'm only human ... with very limited abilities!
    "THANK YOU" for bringing this to our attention and to the attention of the BOC Brother's and Sister's. I know that many, many, others will join us in Prayer for this poor terrified child!
    Please keep all of us informed as best you can as to the child's progress.
    Fraternally and Most Sincerely Yours,
    Coyote1& Raven

    Thank you for sharing this with us,your BOC family! How horrendous for a little girl to have to worry about this!! I absolutely hate it that such evil exists in this world. The child will be remembered in my prayers and so will you!:sad2:

    The family is doing fine. The little girl is all smiles again. This is how God works. Her dad ( a police officer) was hit in the face (upper lip) by a 38 caliber bullet . The bullet went through the windshield and slowed down enough that when it hit him the impact shattered most of his upper teeth and broke the bone in that area but did not penetrate any more, he actually swallowed the bullet.(they had to have the bullet for ballistics) he had some reconstructive surgery, but is home and able to talk. his wife told me he has reevaluated his faith and rededicated his life to Christ. I told them about the BOC and that my brothers and sisters here were praying for them and they expressed their gratitude and thanks. I can not thank all of you enough for your prayers. David
