Dubya was telling us tonight about a close friend "Robert" who had lost his life in a hunting accident (apparently the classic fence cross) this gentleman left a wife who is grieving about a newly paraplegic son.. For all the "Roberts" we've all lost, and for all who suffer..

Dear Lord.. We wonder why horrible things happen to good people, and sometimes life is so very unfair.. Please guide us to always know that in our grief your closest to us.. And to remember that if all prayers were answered thier would be no free will.. That same free will that is our most wonderful gift is also our biggest enemy..You let us question, and by overcoming those questions, and doubts when we come to you its thru faith, and the knowledge that our hurt is felt by you..

We pray that you touch all those who are hurting with your healing light..Forgive us our doubts, and guide us to trust in you always.. and to remember that you have blessed us with the gift of life.. the gift of love.. the gift of forgivness thru your suffering.. and that you always ARE with us, and closest when we need you most..

If it's your will please hold Robert, and all those who have lost thier life in the palm of your hand, watch over all those who hurt, and guide us to take care of each other.. In your Holy name.. Amen

and for all the Roberts we've all lost.. and a quick comment guys.. I try to be real careful about not having to many "prayer" posts, and we all know why, like anything good it can be overdone, and i dont want to in ANYWAY change this great site we have, and im afraid it can come off "cultish".. (get the kool aid!!)

I will say that before i do post a prayer i always ask sincerely that our Lord might be the guide of my words.. guess my point is no comment is necessary

Thank You Mr GregAz

Robert was 68 years old. He started hunting at the age
of 8. That's 60 years of experiance.

Robert was not a stupid person by any standard.
He was a retired Dallas,Texas Fire Dept Captain.
It only takes one slip up.
For Heavans sake please be careful.
