I don't know if this is appropriate for a forum such as this, but I beleive in the prayer of many. One of my coworkers grandsons went to the movies Tuesday night and did not return home. He was reported missing by his family and the next day his truck was spotted with two males inside. After a chase, the two males got out of the truck and ran. One was later captured when he stole another vehicle, the second has not been caught. Her grandson is still missing, but the man that they were able to catch finally confessed last night that they badly beat him up and threw him in the Sabine river. As of right now her grandson has not been found. Our hopes are that he is still alive and somehow managed to get out of the river. Her grandson just turned 18 this month. No one knows why these guys picked him, we are not even sure how old they are yet. Please keep the situation in mind and pray for a positive outcome, somehow. My son just started driving, and I cannot imagine going through a situation such as this.

Will do. What a horrible, random act of violence.

Please do tell us how things go for this family! We will keep you all in our thoughts and hope for a positive outcome. What a sad and horrible thing to happen. I sure feel for the family.

Lil Bit, my thoughts and prayers.

When my son was about 3 years old he was missing for about 2 hours, those hours were hell so I know the anxiety these people are experiencing. God's speed and blessings to them.

Thanks for sharing your concerns for your co-worker and this young man. May God watch over this boy and see him safely home.

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and his ears are open to their prayer.

Well said Z. Well, actually you didn't say it, Jesus did, but well quoted.

LiL Bit More: Know that we are gathered in prayer for your co-worker and her grandson. I think this is very much appropriate for this forum.

I think so, even if the gathering is virtual

Where the heart is
Where ever your co-worker's grandson is, know that G-d is already there with him, has never left him, and is always watching over. While we may not be able to fathom the ways that G-d watches over us and cares for us, His love is unwavering and unending.

Lord, we humbly pray for three things:
1) That you take care of this young man in whatever his current circumstance is and that you bring him safely back to his family, or if that is not your will, that you take him home with you.
2) That you bring peace and comfort to his family in such pain and turmoil right now - that you provide the peace that passes all understanding
3) We pray for the redemption of the souls of those that would commit such a violent, hateful and hurtful act - that you would bring them to a point of repentence and acceptance of your gift of eternal salvation.

In Jesus precious holy and saving name, Amen.

Amen. Thank you. I will definitely mark this post and let my friend Wanda know how far reaching the prayers have been. Still no news, they continue to look.

There, unfortunately, is a similar situation going on right now in Kentucky. A young man has been missing for almost a week. They found his wallet floating in a river in another county and his vehicle in Southern Indiana. I feel for anybody that goes through these ordeals.

As difficult as that is, I amen that, Magic. The Lord knows the end from the beginning, and He already knows where this young man is. He will also bring those who did this horrible thing to justice - HIS justice. Thoughts and continued prayers for the "peace that passes all understanding" are with this family during this frightful time.

My thoughts and prayers are with your co-worker and her grandson. What continues to amaze me is that there are people out there who would do such a thing for absolutely no reason. May he be found soon.
