Pray for justice for David.
Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.
God save us from the thieves. They run away from the Law and mow us down while they are doing it.
God save us from the drunk and doped up drivers. In their delirium, they are killing us, Father.
Pray that David is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
