Father, I come to you with a heavy heart today, as I watch the tragedy of the Space Shuttle unfold on television. Thank you for the assurance that You were there with these seven people. And I pray that You had mercy on their earthly bodies, allowing them to die with minimum or no pain. Please watch over the families of the lost Astronauts, for they are hurting and are in need of Your comforting presence. I ask that You grant them the strength that will be required of them in the upcoming months. Guide them with Your Holy light and hold them close to Your heart. In Your Son's name I pray. Amen.
