Prayers for the Benoit Family


#1

If any of you haven’t heard or aren’t wrestling fans, WWE Wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy, and their son 7 yr old Daniel were found dead at their home today. There is a thread in the news forums but I thought we should have one here to offer our prayers for the Benoit family and everyone affected by this tragedy.

Please pray with me.

The Benoit Tragic Weekend.

As I sit in my chair
and hear the devastating news,
I have the feelings of being
numb, shattered, and confused.

I just don’t understand the things
they say you have done.
That you killed yourself, your wife
and your precious innocent son.

Why? Chris Why?
I feel myself die inside
Why? Chris Why?
I ask as I wipe the tears from my eyes.

Was it the fortune, the fame and such?
or did you just lose it from missing
Eddie Guererro so much?

Was it the stress and madness
of the drugs,
that made you unable to
give and receive hugs?

Instead of taking
that much needed nap,
Did something inside you
cause you to suddenly snap?

But rest assure,
somewhere far up above,
Lives Our God,
Who is full of Forgiveness
and unconditional love.

So much that He sent
His only son to redeem us,
I know you believed in Him
Who’s Sweet and Holy Name is Jesus.

I know that you are in Heaven
and that makes me smile and become enliven
Because My God says,
" You Are Forgiven".

I know there are others
from sea to shining sea,
who upon reading this
will strongly disagree.
But This I feel in my heart
and know that it is true.

That on that tragic weekend,
God took your beautiful wife Nancy,
Your adorable son Daniel to Heaven,
As well as Chris, He took you too.

And don’t worry about your
reputation here on earth,
which has been damaged,
tarnished and smudged.

Because it is Our God
In Heaven,
And His Place Alone To Judge.

And Chris, I have one more thing,
I am going to ask you to do,
When you are in Heaven
and see my best friend Justin, family and friends,
there, Please give them all a hug and a kiss
and tell them I love and miss them too.
