Prayer Request for Baby's Family


Bless those who mourn, eternal God,
with the comfort of your love
that they may face each new day with hope
and the certainty that nothing can destroy
the good that has been given. May their memories become joyful,
their days enriched with friendship,
and their lives encircled by your love.
Amen.

Today in Church we found out about the passing of Brody, a 5 month old baby of a family that has attended New Life for several years. Brody was at the same Baby Dedication this past May, with Brandon and Faith. Brody became ill about a week ago and required surgery. After surgery, his body grew an infection that just could not be contained by doctors. He passed away on Monday July 7th. I wanted to send out a prayer request for his family through this very difficult time.

That's so sad. I can't imagine how the family feels. I'll be praying for them. Thankfully they have God and a church home to help them through this time.

Hi Peggy- I am Braedan's Mom Jessica, we also go to New Life and I saw you outside the nursery at church today. Just thought I'd say hi. It is very sweet of you to ask for prayer requests for baby Brody. I feel so horrible for his family. Maybe we'll see you next Sunday.

I'm so sorry for Brody and his family. You're such a nice person to send out a prayer reqest for them. I'm sure all the prayers will help give the family a little bit of peace. You're a very caring person Peggy.

This is just so terrible and I will definitely say a prayer for the family. BTW, my neighbors and a co-worker/friend also go to New Life. Small world!
