URGENT Prayers Needed For Accident Victims

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much..."
James 5:16
(KJV)

Please pass this prayer request along to your church
and individual prayer lists.

I am writing with a plea for prayer to all prayer warriors for the Brown family 
who were involved in a serious car accident Saturday evening.
Their vehicle hit a tree, and the repercussions are beyond devastating.


Left to Right:  Quinton(5), Neveya(1), Shyla(24), Steven(23) , Max(2), Makeya(6)

The father, Steven, is in a hospital with a broken knee cap and will have to have surgery in about a week.
The mother, Shyla, has been treated and released from the hospital.
Six year old, Makeya, has a broken neck and is paralyzed from the waist down.
She had surgery today, and the doctor said they have never seen anyone walk again who is in her condition.
Two year old, Max, is on 100% oxygen on a ventilator, has bleeding on the brain, bruises around his heart and lungs, a broken pelvis, and a torn sternum.
One year old, Neveya, was treated and released from the hospital last night with her mother.
Five year old, Quinton, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Quinton Brown now rests in Jesus' arms
The family is separated in hospitals in two different states.  

This is a direct quote from the mother,
"This is going to be the hardest post that I will ever have to write but I feel that people need to know what is going on since they have been so kind to me during this time. Yesterday me, Steven and the kids were in a car accident. The Lord called my baby home. I don't know what I am going to do, I am trying to stay strong for my other 3 children but I just don't know how to do that. Steven Roy Brown and Makeya(6 years old) are in a hospital in West Virginia. Steven has a broken knee cap and will have to have surgery in about a week. Makeya has came a long way already. She broke her neck and it made her spine not in alignment. The last phone call that I got told me that it is now back in its place and she is asking for food. She is still unable to move her legs so as of right now they are saying she is paralyzed from the waist down but I know the Lord is going to make her walk again. Max (2 years old) is up here in Columbus which I am staying with him; he is on a ventilator right now, he had a little bleeding on the brain but it has stopped, he has bruises around his lungs and heart and his sternum I think is what they called it has a little tear in it. Me and Neveya was released from the hospital last night. I have a sprang wrist and bruised up and Neveya is just scratched up a bit. Quinton Xaiver Brown I can't believe that the day will come that I will have to say goodbye to you. You was mommys big boy and you always will be. This seems so unreal. I just want someone to wake me up from this nightmare. Plz continue to pray for us at this time especially Makeya and Max.
     
    Makeya goes in for surgery in the morning and I can not be up there with her. My life is crashing down. I have a lil boy who is better then any of us right now who is running around playing in heavens playground. A lil girl who dreams of being a cheerleader in a hospital who is hours away from me in the hospital being told she may or may not get feeling back in her legs and having to go in for surgery in the morning. Max is fighting for his life in a hospital bed who has a broken pelvis but they can not do anything to help him with that until his brain, lungs, and heart are better. He will eventually have to have surgery on his pelvis (possibly) and will have to go through physical therapy to walk and will start off walking with a walker. What am I suppose to do. Everyone tells me I am a strong girl; I don't have the strength to get through this. I just wish someone would wake me up from this awful nightmare."

Here is an update from her today...

"Max now has no feeling in his feet and legs so today they r going to check his spinal chord out as well. I still feel like this is all a dream like I am not really here. Plz continue to pray for my babies.  

And another...
"Max is now unable to move left foot or both legs they r trying to get an mri on his spinal chord but everytime they try his vital signs go down. Keya has been in surgery since around 12 and is still currently in surgery, they said that would take 4 hrs. She will have to spend some time in a rehabilitation center when she is released. Maxs lungs have got worse they r more bruised so they are putting a bigger breathing tube in right now.."

Only Jesus can understand the pain in their hearts.

    4. Many people have prayed and send good well wishes. I do believe in miracles...God as shown himself to people in many ways. Some people just never see it. Even all that you are going through, you still call for him. He's there with you, your husband and your children right now. Don't ever doubt that, all you need to do is believe. I know that even in the darkest times that you see or feel, deep in your heart you feel a comfort that is confusing. Don't push it away because its our Lord. He will give you the strength and power to carry on. When it gets hard and you feel alone...go somewhere alone and talk to him, I promise he will listen. Even this bad time look for the good that will come from it. Its hard to think that right now but in Gods time it will show its meaning. People say that its Gods will and why does God let bad things happen...I tell you its not him, it never has been...its us hurting each other in this world. Even in the Bible it talks of God and his son only healing, feeding, loving and trying teach us to be good to one another and how to do the right things that please God. Just keep your head up and your spirit strong. The darkness cant take you or your family out of Gods hands. I believe that God will heal and take care of you and your family. He will get you all through this and everyone will be a light for God. Your refuge is with him...that's were it will all began. Threw God all things are possible. I will pray and you all will be on my mind. In his will so shall it be. We Love You All....

    9. This is heart rending. I know the pain of losing a child. I also know what it's like to be told that you'll never walk again. I was told that when I had polio at age 10. However, I did! God does perform miracles still today. I will pray for this family and ask God's healing both physically and emotionally and that His will be done.

  4. I read this yesterday, and found myself unable to comment at the time. It truly devastated me. I found myself asking God why He lets these things happen. I'm not sure there are any good answers for pain and suffering. For we do not see the bigger plan of God. So, unless we are willing to turn our backs on Him (which I am NOT) - then our only answer is to turn to Him in our pain. To pour out our hearts with the agony we feel, and to ask Him to heal and comfort and protect our broken hearts.

    This is what I pray for this dear family. That somehow God's love will break through. Of course I ask for healing. But more than that, I ask that God holds those precious hearts.

    Please keep me updated on this. I find it has touched my heart very deeply.

    GOD BLESS.

    1. Oh, my dear friend! I SO understand what you mean. When I first got the email, I could hardly absorb it. I had to put it aside, for a time, until I could gain enough composure to even pray. If it affects us this deeply, I can NOT even imagine or come close to comprehending their pain of heart. It is impossible to understand why this had to happen. YES, in our pain, we must turn toward the only One Who has the power to alleviate human suffering...for He FELT that suffering. He left the safety of Heaven to come to a place unshielded from suffering..and He drank the dregs of that bitter cup...so He could know how we feel. Oh, what a Savior! He is holding this dear family right now, as we continue to lift their names to Him in prayer. THANK YOU for your kind, caring, compassionate, genuine heart. You are a comfort to me and so many others. I will do my best to update as I hear further news concerning them. God bless you, sweet friend.

    2. This is what I do know. The word says in John 10:10 The thief (satan), comes to steal, kill, and destroy, I (Jesus), come that you have life, and more abundantly. That is dividing line for me. We all go through trying times and we will continue to until we die. Jesus said He would get us through it though, and so by His Grace this family will also. I cannot imagine and hope I never have to endure what this family has. I pray for healing and total restoration for the family and declare all trauma pulled off of them. I pray for Favor and that the Holy Healing arms of Jesus is being wrapped around them at this very moment. I decree that His kingdom come, His will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven over this family. We all grieve with you during this time and pray for supernatural strength from the Father, In Jesus Name, amen Pam Stallworth

I have 3 other boys who are here on earth. I know my angel Max is ok in heaven. So I have to make sure my boys here are ok. It takes a lot to get out of bed each day. Just focus on taking care of you and your children. {{{{hugs}}}

Find comfort in the Lord and cling to Him for the strength that you need. Praying that you will be blessed beyond measure and that you will find hope even in the smallest of things. While we may not understand the Lord's ways, He does have a plan and to him be the glory that will come from this. Lord, help the medical professionals to have the wisdom they need to help this family and the strength to do it to the best of their abilities. God Bless

  24. I am so saddened to hear of this. I just cannot imagine having to go through the accident and then losing a child. I know we wonder why things like this happen. I believe we are all flowers in God's garden and HE can choose any of us at anytime to bring into HIS home. Little Quinton must have been extra special to have been chosen at this time. My prayers are for the family that they will continue to turn to God and use HIS strength to see them through. My heart aches for all the family.

I pray that the lord will give you strength.

I pray that the lord will heal and restore your family. I will pass this along to everyone I know. Don't give up, and don't lose faith. We are all here for you.

  27. Precious family. Psalm 17 says "In my distress, when seemingly closed in, I called upon the Lord and cried to my God. He heard my voice from out of His temple and my cry came before Him, into His very ears." Please know that God does hear your cry, your pain and suffering, and He is a compassionate God who really, actually feels your pain, unlike anyone else can. Right now knowing who He is, is the most important thing for you, to sustain you through this most unimaginable time in your life. Never stop crying out to Him. He will make Himself real to you. There will always be incomprehensible things that happen in our lives for which we will never know the reason - but one thing you do know is that you will all spend eternity together. I know that doesn't alleviate the immediate pain and sorrow, and my heart breaks for you, but keeping that eternal perspective will help. God bless.

  28. I wish I could say some magic words and make all your pain go away. I lost two in the same manner and it never goes away. You learn to hold back the tears eventually, but they still come back when you smell a certain smell, hear a certain song or see something that reminds you of your child. I had one child survive and I focused all I could on her. I at one time I thought that I could no longer handle the pain and I just wanted it all to go away. Then I though how selfish would I be to do something stupid and make my only surviving child suffer because I wanted it all to go away. I am sure she wanted it all to go away also. It was hard and it is something you will never forget. Then again a real mother would never forget their child. Try to focus on all the great memories that you shared. Even though he is not with you anymore you can always say that you are thankful that you were blessed with such an amazing child. I thank God everyday for the love that I received from them even if it was a short time. I loved how everyone always told me you are so strong. I am not really strong, I just have no choice but to live on and care for my other child. I always felt that somehow this was all my fault and that I could have done something to change it all but you can't. You can't blame yourself or others. Have everyone write down a memory of your son in a book and cherish it always. Look back at these memories and smile. This is also something to copy and share with his brothers and sister when they are older. I will be praying for your family everyday. I will pray a little more for you because as a mother I know we carry all the burden because that is what mothers do. Remember he is now at 777 Heaven St and will be waiting for you. Godspeed to you all.

  29. I have no idea who this family is, or yourself. I saw this shared on a friends FB. I cannot even begin to understand what this family is going through, nor would I ever want to. I am sitting here in my office with tears streaming down with heartache for this family. I pray Gods blessing over them, for each day from now until forever. I pray that they would be filled with Gods peace and joy. I wish we could know why these things happen, but God has a plan. He is there to restore this families life, to help them through their grief and whatever is to come. You are all in my prayers. God Bless.

  39. I would absolutely welcome the opportunity to donate to this family along with pray for them. Life is so precious, I wish I could do more to be of support, other than share on Facebook and send something to help with whatever expenses they will incur...something I wish they did not have to think about but tragedies never come without medical bills! Why, we will likely never know but we do know we need to be the hands and feet for these precious folks. Please let me know if a way to donate opens up or where I can send something ie to their church, etc.

  46. I simply can not imagine the total devastation this family must be going through. To lose a child is heartbreaking in itself, but to have two other children with the other injuries they have sustained is horrible. I do know one thing though "With God All Things Are Possible". Although little Quinton is now wrapped in Jesus' arms and completely free from pain the other children can be healed by his hands as well. My son was injured several years ago and had a broken neck he was not paralyzed from it but there was a separation of vertebras. Going to the hospital one morning I was praying and crying and a small voice said to me "With God All Things Are Possible". We were not sure of his outcome but he was lucky to be alive and doing so well. That night when I came back home my daughter was watching a dvd she had gotten from a friend. I came in the door and sat down very low and upset, the movie was just going off but something caught my attention and when I looked up the last scene of the movie panned to a picture hanging over a fireplace that said "With God All Things Are Possible"...that was a confirmation of faith. My son recovered and is doing wonderful and he and his wife now have two children of their own. I believe that this family is wrapped in the arms of Jesus and he will comfort and help them through this awful tragedy. I will keep them in my prayers and trust in the Lord to bring them all home together and help with the healing of their hearts as well as their bodily injuries. May the peace and healing of Jesus be with them all.

    1. Oh, bless your dear heart! You, too, have certainly carried a heavy cross. How comforting for the dear Lord to speak to you at your lowest point and let you know that all things are possible with Him, and then to allow you to see those words on the screen to confirm that. He is a faithful GOD, Who is worthy of all of our praise. I am SO thrilled that God healed your son and restored his health. I LOVE hearing testimonies like these...oh, it just blesses me to see GOD glorified and praised for all He has done. What a miracle that your son is doing wonderful and enjoying life as a husband and father. Praise the dear Lamb of God for bearing that horrible scourging so that we could be healed. I can't thank you enough for sharing this with me and all who will read it here. God bless you richly, and may He always keep His hand upon your son and his family, too.

  50. I just found this on "Children Are A Blessing". Wow! My heart breaks for them! Our firstborn (son) was stillborn this last January, and it was a tremendous blessing to receive cards and know that people all over were lifting us up in prayer. It seemed the cards would arrive at the precise moment when I most needed the encouragement and reminder that we weren't alone in our pain. If at all possible, I would love to send the Browns a card. Is there somewhere that we can send it and have it passed on to them or something?

  51. Everyone is telling you you are a strong girl, BUT, you STILL need to have a good cry. Often when we are told to 'stay strong' we feel we HAVE to put on a face that shows we are being strong, when deep down all we want to do is let it all out. DO THAT. You will feel better for it when you do, THEN you can start the grieving for Quinton and being there for the rest of the family. You WILL come out stronger for this, none of us can see WHY this has happened but nothing can be undone that has been done. Only HE is able to give you the grace, strength and inner peace to carry on with HIS will for your life.

    My sister told me about this family, and I have shared it with my church. When I was born, I had severe fluid on the brain. Doctors advised my parents to put me away (they didn't), that I would never be anything but useless and a vegetable. Today, I live alone, I work at a Christian school, I am a musician, and a published poet. I say this not to brag, but to testify to what the Great Physician (Jesus) and the power of prayer can do!

    My sister and her husband had to say "Goodbye for now" last year to a precious one-year-old son with special needs. So as close as an aunt can, I feel like I know this sweet family's pain. May God's grace go with them, and sustain them as only He can

I pray for comfort and peace in her life and the father's life. Also that the children may feel God's presence and that He may calm their fears.

  82. Prayers from my family to theirs. This is a vary sad and emotional ordeal. I was crying while reading. The mother is worried she wont be strong enough, that women is stronger then any other women i have seen. I know that if this was my sistuation I would not been able to handle this one bit. I have one child and have anxiety attacks over little things with her . This women is amazing and doing amazing and the best she can. God is giving her one of the biggest challanges a parent will ever have to go through. But god also would not give some thing any person can not handle. Its a test of faith its to make her stronger many ways plus more. I pray for her for her children and her husband. Pray for nothing but good out comes great out comes in there challeges. And s for her son who passed and now in gods kingdom with him. He will watch over them all while he is no pain happy and playing till together again and be a big happy family in gods kkingdom once more

  84. I can understand what this poor family is going through at least a little because on 7/7/14 my 4-year old son drowned at a family reunion in a different country. I have 5 remaining children and we are all still very much broken up our loss of him - he was our baby! The grief is daily but this poor family is going through more than even our load. My prayers are going up into heaven for them. All I know, is holding onto Jesus has been all we can do. Keep in his word, hold on to His promises, keep that hope of heaven alive every moment and stay close to his people. I'm sure my Joseph is play with Quinton right now. He's got many playmates in heaven. Is there anyway I could get their address??

  85. Dear Shyla, I too have a baby in Heaven (our first daughter). When my youngest baby came 7-8 weeks early the Lord gave me comfort and strength from a verse in Isaiah 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young." (KJV) Yes, the medical staff will care for their physical needs, but more importantly the Lord Jesus is holding them gently next to His heart of Love. And He knows our physical/emotional weakness during a crisis, and so he will lead you gently. Praying that you, your husband and children will be deeply aware of His Presence, giving you peace that is beyond understanding, as you cast all your burdens on Him. With love from Jenni in Australia.

  88. My heart aches for this Mommy. So many emotions divided and drawing her in every direction. Where she is unable to be, I pray her little girl will be comforted by the guardian angel God has promised each of us. May God meet every need and protect this Mom...her mind, her thoughts, her heart. Thank You Lord, for hope in devastating circumstances. We have a God that heals!

  92. My heart goes out to you, I'm a survior of cancer...I and one other female are the only two survivors to have made it out alive, I was 16 than I'm 32 now. We have not walked anywhere that jesus has not already been, He already knows how this ends,( Psalm 23:4 King James Version (KJV) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.) He's walked this road before you, Not only does he know what your going through but he knows and feels what your feeling..And he he knows how this ends I know as humans we often feel like there's not anyone who understands your pain just rember all of jesus suffering and hold on to to what being held out, The healing hand of god. Look up, Have faith and hold on. Sometimes gods presence isn't always obvious to us... Sometimes he presents himself in the most un obvious ways and we have to look for him but please rest assured that he is there and he hears you. I have left you with some songs,That I pray will bring you comfort and rest in his arms in the coming day if you would like more please let me know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgWOcYpHm0o&list=PL732BAD000723414D&index=4

  97. We will be praying for the Brown Family, We rejoice knowing that the Lord Jesus is the redeemer of all who follow him. Revelation 21: 4He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

    5And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”

  101. my heart goes out to this mother and family!! This story has so touched my heart. I can relate to your pain because my nephew had a car accident on 11-6-12 and suffered a traumatic brain injury, 2 broken femurs, facial fractures, along with others. He substained a stage 4 bedsore with osteomyelitis while in hospital and he stayed hospitalized from one hospital to another for almost a year liking 5 days he got released to go home 11/1/14 and is total care unable to do anything for himself. He cannot eat, talk or walk. He been in out of hospital since being home with pneumonia and uti. We had to fight for a year almost trying to get him in rehab so that he could be given a chance. Now today 8/11/14 we had to leave rehab to be readmitted to hospital with pneumonia in both lungs and uti again. It's the hardest thing ever to see someone you love go through so much pain. we just had to put our trust in God!! He's the one who has kept my nephew and has a miracle in the making for him. The doctors told us the day of his accident that they didn't expect him to make because there was so much swelling and pressure on his brain, they told us 2months later the most we'd see was a smile if we saw that and that he had 10percent chance coming out of his coma. they even told us we could give him quantity of life verses quality of life. quality of life take him home make him comfortable and let him go and quantity of life meaning only thing keeping him alive was ventilator. He was off ventilator 3 days when they said that and has been since. The doctors just didn't know what God knows because my nephew has done a lot more than they said. He improves and you see him do different stuff almost everyday. I know God performs miracles because my nephew is a miracle and God's not through yet. I believe it for my nephew and I pray for God gives you and your family a miracle as well I know he can. I also pray that God gives you strength as you have to say goodbye to your precious little boy. I can only relate to part of your pain but all of it is just unimagineable. My heart sincerely goes out to you and your family and may God comfort you all.

  102. I can only breifly understand part of what this family is going through. I lost a brother to a horrific auto accident when he was only 23. I got mad at God for taking him away from me but I soon realized that God does ALL things for a reason. My prayers are with this family for grace and the strength to allow God to guide them through this valley and to show them His Great healing powers.
