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.

I know the pain you are going through.I was also in a car accident in 1992 & I lost my best friend she was also 16. It took me a long time, but I have found peace, I believe she is with God and your daughter is too. They are safe. Trust in that and be strong.

Dear Father,

We cry out to you on behalf of Jim and his family. Oh God, you who know what it is to lose a child, to lose a beloved, pierce through Jim's deepest darkness of grief, loss and despair and let him feel the overwhelming and boundless extent of your unconditional love for him. Help him to know, without any doubt, that his loved ones who were so tragically killed are still with him and that nothing can separate him from them, nor from your love. May your Spirit comfort and give peace to his soul, and help him to continue to live with the higher part of himself in control. Help him not to neglect his remaining family nor himself. Please bring your peace and love to him and his family and let there be acceptance, and eventual freedom from pain for all of them.

In the name of Jesus, I pray,

AMEN

My prayers go out to you and your family on the loss of your precious daughter.
Lord, please be with them in the time of sorrow. Please wrap your loving arms around them and surround them with your love and comfort. Help them to remember to love and support each other and to be patient with each other in this difficult time. Only you, Lord, know why you chose to take Anna home. And, I pray that her family and friends can find some comfort in knowing that she is home with you. Lord, please help them to look to you for strength. I ask these things in your name, Lord. AMEN

Dear Jim: Remember that God only tests the strong, because the weak can't handle it anyway. Is our weakness, He is strong! Claim that promise today!
God, grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I have shared this with many grieving people: read Psalm 139: Wherever we go, God is already there!
God bless you and your family. Be strong, they need your leadership in this time of trial. I ask all this in Jesus' Precious Name. Amen and amen.

Dear Jim,
My heart still hurts for you today, as I read the prayers that others are sending for you. Jim I know that there is not much anyone can say right now that will ease the pain. My only suggestion would be that you find someone who lets you talk about her day and night. I lost my best friend to suicide 4 years ago, and although the pain never completely goes away, I found that the ones who would sit and listen to me talk about everything from the sandwiches he liked (that I hated) to the funny faces he made, always seemed to make me feel like he was right there with me. I know that you feel lost jim, so today I send another prayer up to our father, that he may ease your pain. We are all here for you. God Bless you and your family.

There are no simple words that I can say that will make your hurt lessen or make your heart lighter. We do not always know God's plan, but trust that He most definitely has one for all of us. I pray that you find peace and comfort in each other's arms and hold tight to each other and trust in God. Know that she is now home, and praise God, someday we will all be home together again. We are all human, and tend to blame ourselves for everything that happens, please do not do that. All
things happen for a reason. Hold tight to your faith and God will hold you in His mighty arms. Peace, love, and goodwill to you and your family.

DEAR FRIEND, CONTINUE TO ENCOURAGE YOUR FRIEND IN HIS TIME OF GRIEF AND LOST. THERE IS NOTHING HARDER ON THIS EARTH FOR A PERSON TO HAVE GO THROUGH, THAN TO LOSE THEIR CHILD. SO, I PRAY THEIR PEACE AND THEY SHOULD KNOW "THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THEM THAT BELIEVE." DEAR JIM THE HURT WILL LESSEN AND THE DESPAIR WILL AND CAN DIMINISH WHEN YOU PUT IT ALL IN THE MASTER'S HAND. GIVE HIM ALL YOUR HURT,PAIN, ANGER(EVEN AT HIM), BECAUSE WE DO BEGIN TO BLAME GOD FOR THESE TRAGIC OUTCOMES, HOWEVER HE CAN HANDLE IT. AND IN RETURN, IF YOU ARE WILLING AND RECEPTIVE HE WILL GIVE YOU JOY AND "PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING." GO THROUGH YOUR HURT AND PAIN BUT PLEASE DO NOT TAKE UP RESIDENCE THEIR FOR IT WILL EVENTUALLY BECOME BABYLON AND WILL BEGIN TO HOLD YOU CAPTIVE AND DRAIN ALL THE LIFE OUT OF YOU AND YOUR DAUGHTER WOULD NOT HAVE WANTED THAT AND NEITHER DO THE CHILDREN AND WIFE YOU HAVE ALIVE WITH YOU DESERVE. GOD BLESS AND MAY THE PEACE OF GOD KEEP YOU ALWAYS.

My heart goes out to you, I know what it is to lose a child, my oldest son was murdered almost ten years ago. You will grieve and go through the stages of grief. You will always miss her but remember she is in God's hands, and she is an Angel always around you. Every now and then I whelm up with tears especially when I get to the month of June, the month he was born in and the month he died in. My prayers are with you and your family. I feel your pain there are so many of us who have experienced loss, the the sudden death is the hardest to deal with. If you need help there is help out there, I did therapy for a while after his death and still have to use medication for depression. God will give your and the family the strength to carry on I know it is hard, but as time goes on it will hurt less and less. SHE IS AROUND YOU TRUST ME. GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU STRONG.
