RaymondIt took me a long time, but God has given me the ability to forgive this man who threw away everything that I am not able to have. I find myself praying every day that God might touch his heart. I will never undertand how he could have done that horrible act, but I realize now that in the eyes of God I am just as much a sinner as he is. I will continue to pray for him, and those who like him, that they might come to know God as I have. Thank you all for your prayers.

Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): I dont even know where to start with this. I live in Central NY and this afternoon not far from where I live, police responded to a domestic dispute. The 21 year old male had threatened to kill his son if law enforcement arrived. When State Troopers pulled up, he carried his 3 month old son outside, held him up and shot him with a shotgun without saying a word. My heart has been ripped from my chest, and for the first time in a very long time my faith has been shaken. My wife and I have had so many infertility issues while trying to start a family, that I cant understand why there are so many kids that are born to families that dont want or deserve them. How am I supposed to forgive this man for his actions? I know God has a plan, but how can things like this be a part of it. I just need you all to pray for the families involved in this incident today. Also pray that I might find a way to forgive him, as I have been forgiven.
