A Bright Soul’s Last Prayer: Tragedy Strikes Young Girl on Family Vacation

In an unexpected and heart-wrenching turn of events, a pastor has shared the poignant story of his young daughter, who recently passed away in a freak accident.

Lucy Morgan, a six-year-old full of life and curiosity, was on a family holiday in Limerick, Maine. While playing badminton with her siblings, a racquet handle broke, striking her head and causing fatal injuries.

Four days later, Lucy succumbed to her injuries in the hospital.

Jesse Morgan, her father and a devoted church pastor, spoke with Fox News about a significant moment just two weeks before the accident. Lucy had asked her mother, Bethany, about finding salvation and being with God.

Bethany explained the concept of faith and prayer to Lucy and offered to pray together. In her typical independent spirit, Lucy chose to pray alone, seeking a personal connection with God.

Despite medical efforts, including surgery to remove a piece of skull to alleviate brain pressure, Lucy was left with severe brain damage. She could no longer breathe on her own. Her family surrounded her, singing her favorite hymn as she peacefully passed away.

Returning home to New Jersey, the Morgans received Lucy’s backpack from a friend. Inside, they discovered a prayer journal Lucy had kept for a month, filled with heartfelt drawings and expressions of her burgeoning faith.

Among the sketches and loving words, Lucy had written about her love for Jesus and her belief in God’s incredible power and sacrifice.

Jesse found solace in his daughter’s faith, calling it a beautiful gift during their profound grief. He emphasized that while God did not perform a miracle by bringing Lucy back, He performed a miracle in their hearts, sustaining their faith.

The family wants others to see beyond the tragedy and witness the miraculous strength and comfort they find in their faith.

A funeral service for Lucy Morgan will be held at 11 a.m. on June 15 at Green Pond Bible Chapel in Rockaway Township.
