Invitational E-Mail

Dear Friends and Family,

Our 12 year old daughter, and David's sister, Laura Kate Smither, was abducted and murdered on April 3, 1997. To this date, no one has been charged with her murder.

We invite you and your family and friends to join us in a daily prayer for nine days starting on April 3, 2009. The intention of our prayer will be for the softening of the heart of Laura's killer and for God's justice to be accomplished.

Laura's brother David has prepared suggestions for nine days of prayer content that we would like to share with you. Each daily e-mail will include a reading from the Bible along with how the reading relates to the intention of our nine day prayer.

If you would like to join us in these nine daily prayers, please send an e-mail to:


with a subject line as follows:

The body of the e-mail is ignored.

In a short time you should receive an e-mail confirming your addition to the prayer list. If you do not get a confirmation, please let me know at:

and I will add you to the list.

Starting on April 3, 2009, you will receive a daily e-mail for each of nine days. Each e-mail will have the suggested reading for the day and a short commentary on the reading as it relates to the prayer's intention.

Please forward this invitation to any friends and family that might like to pray with us. The power of this prayer can only be increased as more of us join together around the world.

Each daily e-mail will be addressed individually to your e-mail address and will not be shared.

Thank you,

Bob, Gay, and David Smither
