Jim Jenkins
Father who lost 16 year old daughter in car accident

Jim is having a hard time after suddenly losing his 16 year old daughter in a car accident on her way home from school on 3-14-05.

Jim and his daughter,Anna, had an extremely close open and honest relationship. They were not only father and daughter, but they were also best friends. It is even harder for him because her mother was also killed in a car accident 13 years ago. He feels as if he has completely lost that part of his life. He is having a very hard time. Please pray for him to overcome this tragic time in his life. Please pray for him to have the power to not to turn to his old ways of dealing with the pain. And please put a prayer in for her stepmother and three young brothers who are also having a hard time. Anna is loved dearly by them all and deeply missed.

Heavenly Father,I pray that you will comfort jim in his time of need. Follow him father and be with him, so that he won't find himself being angry with you, like so many of us do when we lose a loved one. Let him know father that she is in a place now where she is loved also. We understand father, that she is much happier now, but that will be hard for her father to understand. I pray that Jim's pain brings him even closer to you. Please be with him and his family in their time of dispair and pain. In jesus name Amen.

Dear Jim,
I am so sorry for you loss, I know the pain and the blackness you feel for I too have lost a child to tragedy.
It is an ellite group we belong to. One who must bury their child and then deal with the pained memories and wondering every day "what could I have done"
As black as the world seems right now, please beleive me when I say that hours, will turn into days, days will turn into Weeks, Weeks will turn into Months and eventually years will pass. the Pain will never fully pass, but you will be able to get to a point where you forgive yourself and remember all the goodness she had brought to your lifes. Please get into a support group. I know what it is like when your friends and family suddenly stop talking when you enter a room, or they dont know what to say so they remain silient..or they say something stupid such as "it was for the best" Know that these people mean well, but until you loose a child, you can never truely understand the bismal abyss where you feel you are right now.
Please contact me if I can be of any assistance or I can help you and your family thru this tortured time.

5/6/2005 03:41

Heavenly Father, please bring Jim the peace that only You can give. Surround him and his family with love, comfort, and many angels as he struggles through this extraordinarily difficult time. While he may never understand in this lifetime why this happened, help Jim to trust that one day he will know. Please heal this family's pain and bring them peace and hope. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Dear Sweet Jesus. There are no mortal words that will sooth this pain. Please protect Jim from making any bad choices. Let him feel your presence as he faces every parents worst nightmare. I lost my little brother, so I understand the anguish Jim faces. Let him know that time is the only thing, along with all our prayers, that will make this burden more and more bearable. Jim, for now, know that the heartache WILL ease. Give yourself up to prayer and try not to look too far ahead right now. Do not turn away from your wife and children, for they fear losing you too . I've been there, I know, I will pray for you and the rest of your family.Jesus, and all the Saints, help this poor father. Amen

Prayer for Comfort and Hope

Grant unto us, Almighty God, in all time of sore distress,
the comfort of the forgiveness of our sins.
In time of darkness give us blessed hope,
in time of sickness of body give us quiet courage;
and when the heart is bowed down, and the soul is very heavy,
and life is a burden, and pleasure a weariness,
and the sun is too bright, and life too mirthful,
then may that Spirit, the Spirit of the Comforter, come upon us,
and after our darkness may there be the clear shining of the heavenly light;
that so, being uplifted again by Thy mercy,
we may pass on through this our mortal life
with quiet courage, patient hope, and unshaken trust,
hoping through Thy loving-kindness and tender mercy
to be delivered from death into the large life of the eternal years.
Hear us of Thy mercy, through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen.

Lord, we thank You for the time that Anna was here on earth. We praise for the blessing her life was and the impact she had on her family and loved ones. We know that her legacy and precious memories will live on. Please wrap Your loving arms around Jim. Have him to know that Anna is resting safely with You. Her work on earth was done. Dry all their tears and mend their broken hearts. Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal. Help Jim to know that when he feels the loneliest, You are the closest. Thank You, Lord, for listening, hearing, and understanding. In Jesus' name. AMEN.

In Jesus' name and with this community of believers, I pray that you wipe every tear from his eye. Amen.

My prayer for your family is "Hail Mary" She suffered your loss and she reaped the reward of eternal life with Her Child. I also give you the advice to go ahead and cry. Cry while your alone, and cry together as a family. I have loss someone close to me and I just feel so much better when I think of her and cry. It takes a weight off, and helps me focus on my feelings for her. I was just glad to have her in my life. It made me a better person as your daughter has made you and her mother had made her. Anna is a gift from God to you for life. Look at her beautiful face and don't ever forget her, talk about her, think about her. Her soul is always with you. God Bless

My heart rends as I see the beautiful family God has blessed you with, knowing that an integral piece is missing on earth. I will never know the depth of pain that you feel at losing your daughter. I do know that death is the gateway to eternal life with Christ Jesus our Lord for all who believe in and have accepted Him as their Lord and Savior while here on earth. May you allow Christ to hold and comfort you. May you let Him heal you and your family. Know that He has not left nor has He forsaken you although it may well feel like that at this time. Know that people who read this see your pain and will undoubtedly continue to storm heaven on your behalf long after the chance to minister to your heart on this site has passed, and that I am one of them. I have no tired cliches for you. I simply mourn with you the death of a child. May you find peace, rest and comfort at this time in your life, and may you find the strngth in Christ Jesus to continue being that loving husband and father whom your wife and children need. May you continue to be a pillar of light and guidance for them. In Jesus name,

5/6/2005 10:50

Through this time of pain, Dear Lord give this family the strenght to get through this. In time all wounds are healed, it will take time keep your head up and just know she is an Angel now along w/ her mother looking down at you keeping you safe, she will always be in your heart.
God Bless!
