When I heard the song, I also realized how much his family needs our prayers right now. They are having to learn a new normal in their lives without their Maria. I can never understand even an ounce of their pain, but our family has lost a child and I can say that I needed the love and prayers of my friends and family. One month out, six months out, one year out and now, three years out, when someone tells me they are praying for our family or that they had a thought of James the other day it makes me feel so incredibly loved and not so alone when the sadness settles in.
I urge you to pray for the Chapmans. If you are interested in reading about how they are doing, one of his managers is keeping a blog and you can read about it here. It's important that we don't forget. We, as Christians, are responsible for lifting each other up in prayer.
