A Prayer for the Family and Friends of David Hames

posted by nsymmonds

A few weeks ago, we posted an update on David Hames, the Compassion International volunteer who was buried under the rubble of the Hotel Montana following the massive earthquake in Haiti. It is with a heavy heart that we provide you with the following update about David. It is my hope that after reading this and even before, you would put yourself in a position of prayer to intercede on behalf of the family and friends of David Hames.

From a statement released by Vanguard Church  on Tuesday, February 9, 2010:

“The death of one that belongs to him is precious to the Lord.” (Ps. 116:15)

The remains of David Hames were identified by the State Department this morning, and Renee and her boys are grieving the loss of their husband and father. We know that our dear brother and friend is in heaven, but even so, Renee is grieving the loss of the man she loved with all her heart.

Our faith in God is not shaken by this terrible tragedy, but we still mourn the loss of this adoring husband, amazing daddy, and faithful friend. We all know David loved Jesus, and we know that he is safe today, at home with our Heavenly Father. Now we will band together to care for his sweet wife and their two young boys. I will post again soon about a memorial service at Vanguard Church in Colorado Springs as well as additional ways to support Renee, Aidan, and Zander.

Please join us in prayer for the family and friends of David Hames, a servant of the Lord, who we pray is now present with Him.

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the life of David Hames, a man who thought it not robbery to serve your people as a Compassion International worker. We thank you for the wonderful father he was to Aidan and Zander and the wonderful husband he was to Renee. In this time of mourning we pray that you would help them to remember the times that they had with him on this earth. May they cherish those moments. We pray for a special covering over Renee as she deals with the loss of the love of her life. May you comfort her and send her all the love she needs. Be in the midst of their children, Aidan and Zander, reminding them of your great and affectionate love for them. Bless and protect all the family and friends of David Hames. May they all come together on one accord to remember David, to encourage one another and to build one another up. May all turn their hearts toward prayer and positive thoughts for David’s family and friends. May God meet every need those spoken and unspoken. May wailing be turned into dancing, sorrow turned into joy and beauty be turned to ashes in God’s perfect timing. May it all be well with your souls Renee, Aidan, Zander and other family and friends. Rest in peace David.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

A Prayer for a Renovated Soul
Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me now let me rejoice. Psalm 51:7 The bad news comes before the Good News. It must. But now we turn that corner. We ask God for blessing, but we first recognize

How Can God Know Us? Search Me!
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.  Psalm 139:23-24.  Nothing hinders God’s love; but I can hinder my own capacity to accept grace. Today we admit this and pray
