A prayer for Tracy, Sybrina and Jahvaris, as we are finally here! #J4TM

June 23, 2013

Father, I pray for Tracy, Sybrina, Jahvaris and others in their circle of family like Uncle Ronald and Trayvon’s grandmother,  and friends who are grieving.

They’re hurting for many reasons, and I ask You to help them through this season of loss. I reach out to You, the Father of compassion and the source of every comfort, asking You to touch them with Your unfailing love and kindness. Be their God who comforts them as they’re going through their struggles, and bring them through the tough things ahead. Come alongside them in their pain, and strengthen them so they’ll continue to be able to help others who face the same struggles. (2 Corinthians 1:3–4, Psalm 33:22, 1 Samuel 20:14a)

You’re close to people whose hearts are breaking, those who are discouraged and have given up hope. May You who see their troubles and grief respond when they cry out. (Psalm 34:18, 10:14a, 17)

When they’re hurting, help them find their joy in You, for it’s Your joy that will be their strength. Help them to trust You as their God of hope. Fill them with Your joy, peace, and hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Help them experience the love, joy, and peace that are the results of His life in them, no matter what they’re going through. (Nehemiah 8:10b, Romans 15:13, Galatians 5:22)

May they sense Your presence in this time of need.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.


If anyone is offended by this prayer, I apologize in advance. I know that the Martin/Fulton family is a family of faith, as am I and this prayer is for them. I believe in the power of prayer but if any of you do not, feel free to send them well wishes instead :) Thank you.

UPDATE: A very special video from LLMSPapa that I would like to share with you all. He says this will be his last video and he got it so right. Papa has been a mighty, brilliant Trayvon Warrior in this long road to justice. I certainly have appreciated the time and effort he has put in to share the truth, as I’m sure you all do to. Please watch and share:

    I stand with you in prayer and your walk. Keep each other lifted as our Heavenly Father and Trayvon wrap you. Do believe that No Weapons Form Shall Prosper for our Heavenly Father says “Revenge is mine, stay truth with faith in him and believe it is in his hands. Bless you all.
    The Thomas Family

    I am praying so hard that Sybrina, Tracy, and Jahvaris will have justice and some closure. It has been a long journey. They are the most humble, beautiful people I have seem with courage. I hope they will continue to keep Trayvon’s legacy alive and their work with the Trayvon Martin Foundation. I was with the family during the Peace Walk on Feb 9 and the Prayer and Peace Service on Jun 1. Trayvon Martin wil always lived on in my heart.

      It has been a long journey for sure Dara & I am relieved that we are finally here. Not for us, or for me, but for the Martin family who have shown nothing but class, strength, courage and words of wisdom over these past 16 months. They deserve to have justice and I pray God shields their pain with having to relive 2/26/13 over the next few weeks! Thanks for posting.

    I pray that God gives Sybrina, Tracy, Jahvaris and all other family members the strength to get through this most difficult time. God watch over and guide Bernie and the prosecution as they bring this case to justice. I pray that the witnesses are honest and if they’re not, that they’ll be exposed. I pray the the jury open their hearts and see the truth. I pray that everyone who had a hand in this injustice be brought to light and punished. Amen!

    Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

    I know this is difficult. There will be highs and lows. I also pray the jury member uphold their oath to only look at the evidence presented at trial.

    Thank you all for taking a few minutes to stop by and share your prayers for the Martin family. I believe in prayer and strength in numbers so it is greatly appreciated. Welcome to all the new posters as well :)

I pray that GOD will sustain them all and, that Tracy and Jahvaris will be the ever present strength for Sybrina as they all travel on this long and hard fought journey, seeking Justice For Our Precious baby boy, Trayvoon.

    I hope you won’t mind my adding this Buddhist prayer for Trayvon and his entire family:

    Bodhisattva Prayer for Humanity

    May I be a guard for those who need protection
    A guide for those on the path
    A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood
    May I be a lamp in the darkness
    A resting place for the weary
    A healing medicine for all who are sick
    A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles
    And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
    May I bring sustenance and awakening
    Enduring like the earth and sky
    Until all beings are freed from sorrow
    And all are awakened.
    — Shantideva, Indian Buddhist sage 700 A.D.

    I do pray someday his parents will be freed from their sorrow and I pray that justice is obtained for Trayvon at last.
