Crying Out to God - Need Prayer

If you are a praying person, please read this and please send your prayer coverage to surround William Petit.

This is not about my family. But it just broke my heart to read it. I received an email from one of my wonderful and dear friends Alicia (if you recall, she braved the Cambridge Vineyard with me back in 2005). This is an excerpt from her email:

Today seems to be a bad day and I have two prayer requests.
. . .
The second is for my parents primary care physician, Dr. William Petit. Dr. Petit is my Mom and Dad's doctor, my sister's doctor, and was my Meme and her sister's doctor. He is a wonderful person, very caring, and a great doctor. He has been incredibly supportive during my Dad's illness hand picking the surgeon, who turned out to be one of the best in the country, and has sent two prayer cards from his Church to my Dad. You can read in this article that Dr. Petit has suffered an unimaginable tragedy today:

This link will take you to a local newspaper coverage of the horror.


I have the most wonderful prayer warriors. You have all carried me through my relatively tiny horror show. Please help me stand in the gap for William and his extended family.
