Heavenly Father, we ask for your deepest, richest comfort to surround the loved ones of the two men who died in a helicopter crash Wednesday in New South Wales, Australia. May the families and friends of instructor Nicholas Brink and learner pilot Andrew Goldman find hope in you during this dark hour. Lord, as of now, only you know what caused this helicopter to crash in bushland with a highly experienced instructor in charge. We pray for anyone who may have seen the aircraft in any phase of its flight, or who may have CCTV or dashcam footage, to make contact with the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) as soon as possible. We pray for the investigation being conducted by the ATSB and the NSW Police Force, that it will uncover what it needs to uncover so that everyone involved can have a greater sense of closure and so similar accidents are less likely to happen in the future. Lord God, we declare our trust in you, we pour out our hearts before you, knowing that—even in our darkest hours—you are our refuge (Psalm 62:8). In Jesus’ merciful name we pray, amen.
