    * please say a prayer for my friend and his family

    you dont have to reply to this post - but I would appreciate it if you would take a moment and say a prayer for my friend and his family.

    His name is carlos padilla.

    he is 32 and has 2 children - boys - 12 and 6

    he was in a motorcycle accident monday morning at 1 am coming home from visiting his kids at his ex wifes - a deer ran out in front of him and he hit it at about 60mph. he was thrown about 80 feet and suffered severe head trauma - his brain began to swell and this morning at 9am he went brain dead from the swelling so maybe he has already gone to heaven.

    I visited him tonight in the critical intensive care unit and needless to say it was quite emotional and sad.

    They are taking him off life support in 30 minutes and his body will pass as well.

    He has gone on to God now but his family and children remain and your prayers for them are appreciated.

    thanks everyone.

    He is probably already well blessed and transcendent by now.

    Lord,

    Sometimes awful things happen that we can't always explain and this alone makes us question why. I know you don't wish for anyone to hurt yet sometimes through the suffering caused by the sin of this world, hurt happens. I can only during those times of question put my faith completely in You and dive even further into your teachings. Father God, I lift up to you at this time the family of Carlos Padilla. Please look upon them and protect them as their father is now with you. Keep them safe and comfort them during these hard times. Help them focus on the many wonderful things their father has done and to remember him in that way.

    Be with us all Lord through all the turbulence this world brings. Walk with us through our brightest days and run with us through our darkest moments. Only in You can we truly know what it means to be complete.

    For it's in your Son's name that I pray this,
    Amen

    well and update - they took him off life support this morning and he died and since he was an organ donor- they found matches overnight and have harvested many organs this morning. only his brain was damaged which allowed a lot of donations - so hopefully he can live on and help others to have better lives through his gift.
