Since “prayers up” is a little cold for a brother vet, though it is good for calling the friends who run lists, allow me to say my prayer.

Lord, I humbly request you look to your son Justin Lansford.
Badly hurt doing what is right, he still doesn’t give up.
Right now he is doing possibly the hardest task he has faced.
Keeping on breathing.
Bless and inspire his doctors and nurses.
Give him of your strength and will.

He is one who walked the shadows, so others can walk in the sun.
Bless him, keep him and hold him up with your strong arm.
For our brothers sake.

Amen.

I almost didn't read this because I thought, "Oh, dear God, this will be something too painful to bear."

And then I thought, "I have been pinged to this not just by a FReeper, but by the Holy Spirit. I have to read this."

So I read and pray. I do pray. May God fully restore this young man. I can only think, "What if it were my son?" He too is 22.

I emailed the SoldiersAngels coordinator at Landstuhl. I’m confident she’s already made contact with the family but just in case. . . . Prayers for Justin & his family.

Jeff, joining you and all the freepers, from here in Philadelphia. Your prayer for Justin is so beautiful I can only say Amen. I’ve alerted our church prayer chain to join the web of prayer from sea to sea for Justin to soften his landing in D.C. and to gently cover him and his family as he is taken to Walter Reed. May our Lord guide the hands and minds of all those who care for Justin as he fights for his life, and may He give peace and strength to his family and loved ones.

Here's an update provided by Justin's little brother (20yrs)Chris:
"UPDATE: Justin just got back from a CT of his abdomen. His white count has been seriously elevated and the can't find the cause. They may have it tracked down now and can get it under control. All other signs are stable and he keeps improving on the vent.

I just got word from guy who was with Justin about what happened. Justin had gotten out of the vehicle a few minutes before the incident. A bad guy ......300 meters away detonated the IED which exploded under the rear axle of the MRAP. The vehicle flipped rolling over on Justin and pinning his legs under the MRAP and his back pinned against the .50 cal machine gun. He was conscious most of the time but started going into shock. It a long time to get the HEAVE vehicle off of him so they could medivac Justin to the Field Hospital."
