Urgent Prayers Needed For Jakob Cooper - Accident Victim

"He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him."
Psalm 91:15
(KJV)

Calling All Prayer Warriors!!

Please pray for Jakob Cooper,
an 18 year old boy, who was seriously injured in a four-wheeler accident near Vanceburg, KY,
last Wednesday evening, May 13, 2015.


(You will remember that Vanceburg is the same town where The Brown Family
suffered a tragic car accident last August, losing their 5 year old son, Quinton, at the scene,
and leaving their 2 year old son, Max, and their 6 year old daughter, Makeya, paralyzed.)

Jakob Cooper, who is a senior at Lewis County High School, 
was riding a four-wheeler with his friend, Todd Blevins, 
when they crashed at a railroad crossing leaving Jakob unresponsive, with bleeding and swelling on the brain.
Both young men were air-lifted from the scene.
Jakob underwent surgery, and is still in ICU in serious condition at the Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington, WV.

A Facebook page called "Prayers for Coop" has been set up for those who would like to read updates.

Please pray for Jakob's healing and for peace for his loved ones during this difficult time.

God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think, (Ephesians 3:20),
and there is nothing impossible with Him, (Matthew 19:26),
no matter how hopeless the situation looks.
I look forward to seeing how He shows His amazing power on behalf of Jakob.
Thank you for your prayers!!
