Words to Hold to…….

Ben and Lindsey 8

The Lord your God is with you,

He is mighty to save.

He will quiet you with his love,

He will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17



  1. We have been praying constantly for your Luke, as well as for your entire family when we heard about this accident from Paula Cook. My husband Steve said he felt a physical glow when initially prayed for Luke, and told me he was sure Luke would be OK. (He has been right in the past about such things.) We will continue to pray for all of you,
    Our twins, Mary & Lizzie were in kindergarten with Carson this last year, and we will pray for his recovery as well.
    May God continue to bless and keep you.

  2. Ben & Lindsey, Luke has been been in our prayers since we first heard of his accident. He will continue to be in our prayers until he comes home the same Luke we knew when you guys lived across the street from us in Bridgewater. God is surely watching over him.
    If there is anything we can do, please ask.
    Love, Jerry & Brenda

  3. Ben & Lindsey,

    Your entire family is in our prayers. It sounds like Luke is beginning to make the recovery everyone has been praying for. We will continue praying for his recovery and for the entire Yoder family.

  4. Ben & Lindsey, there are few moments in our day that we are not thinking of you. We are so greatful for each up date and the energy that your siblings take to keep us informed. We are constantly lifting you ALL up in prayer during these critical days. May you get rest and strength that only comes from above.

  6. I and my family (including my prayer family) will join to lift Luke up to God especially to thank Him for healing Luke.

    I just want you to know that God did the same miracle for my son 4 years ago and he was then a 30 year old man. So for an 8 year old Luke, it is a breeze for God to make Luke whole.

    First of all tell God to take away the Spirit of fear, tell Him to strengthen your faith and also to give you His peace.

    I stood on and claimed His promises given in Psalm 91 verses 14 to 16 and James 5 verse 15. Luke is healed in Jesus Name. Amen.

  8. Luke is one of the best baseball players on the Mt.Crawford Braves. I pray for his full recovery daily and look forward to coaching him again in the near future. God speed. Coach Jimmy

  9. Dear Ben and Lindsey,
    We have never met, but Maxine Arey told me about Luke and our prayers immediately go out to your entire family. I am the leader of the Charlottesville Brain Injury Support Team. I THOROUGHLY understand what you are going through. My son suffered a severe TBI 3 1/2 years ago. He has made a definite miraculous recovery, but it took a wonderful medical team and many many prayers. Now I will spend the rest of my life thanking God every day. I will be in prayer for you to have a wonderful outcome also. You will come out such changed people from this experience and will appreciate so many little things you probably overlooked in the past. At times I tell my son that he was the one with the horrible injury and he makes the rest of the family look bad! (just kidding). He actually came out better… very strong in his faith and the wonderful part is that he feels better about himself now. God has a powerful way of waking us up sometimes, but boy can he get some fantastic results! A.W.’s injury and recovery has touched so many lives and given so many hope. It sounds as though Luke is just resting up to do the same thing.

    I would love to meet you and PLEASE feel free to call with any questions you may have. One of the many wonderful things that have happened as a result of my son’s injury is finding Maxine as a friend. A.W. (he seems to have a “special” connection to Godnow) and I will both pray for your family and especially Luke. We will also add him to the prayer list at our church in Buckingham.

    Very sincerely,
    Carol Ragland
