Pray for justice for Kayla.
Pray that the driver who clipped the vehicle she was in, is apprehended. He or she may not be entirely guilty for the crash, but do not kill our children and run away.
Pray for the teenagers who die at 19. They are only kids after all. Amen.
Pray that Kayla is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
