Raphael, Archangel,
pray for Andrew

Thank you for serving, Andrew.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.

Pray without ceasing unto God for an end to this war in Afghanistan. It is enough. We are sick with grief for men like Andrew. He would not have died there, if there was no war there. God give us peace.

Pray that Andrew is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
