Prayers for Jason

My cousin, Jason, was in a horrible car accident this past weekend. Because of the damage to his spinal cord, he is paralyzed from the waist down. So often I read prayer requests like this and I am able to skim past the information ... pause for a bit and move on.

I hope I can get you to pause a bit longer and get to know this boy and commit to pray for him and his family ...

He is 17 years old.

He is about to begin his senior year of high school.

He has dimples to die for.

He is the apple of his momma's eye.

He is his daddy's right-hand man.

He loves to play football for the Alvarado Indians.
He is #86.

But he really loves to rope and ride.

They are brothers ...
If you have a brother then words are not necessary.

He is 17 years old.
Steven, Jason, and Randy (dad)

"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."

-Psalm 34:18

Kim...he seems like such a great guy...full of fun and life...I know this is a dark valley right now...one that would be every parents nightmare...praying for strength to make it through each minute.

I've been praying and I will continue. I don't have any words to share because I know words don't really mean much right now. Prayer is the best thing to give.

Thank you for the sweet pictures. What a precious family! I know what they are facing has got to seem unreal and nightmarish, but I'm praying Gods peace will take over and carry them through this. Love you Kim!!
