Internationally renowned artist Steve. R. Skipper recently unveiled his latest work, “Intercession in Washington” and announced a portion of the proceeds from limited edition prints of the oil painting will benefit First Priority of Alabama. “We are excited about being a benefactor of this particular work because of the bold, yet humble example that JK Scott and other National Champion Alabama football players gave all of us, particularly to our young people,” said First
Priority of Alabama President Greg Davis whose ministry reaches and disciples youth with the love and message of Jesus Christ. “In Steve’s painting, we see the boldness exhibited by JK to ask the President of the United States if he and other players could pray for him, not as a President but as a person. We see the great humility in this painting as they all bow their heads before almighty God.”
“JK Scott stepped up boldly and did exactly what God told him to do,” says Skipper who was inspired to share Scott’s story on canvas. “It’s not new for God to use young people and this is a great example of that.” Skipper estimates he invested about 1400 hours in completing the painting.
First Priority is celebrating thirty years of working with youth to establish and maintain student-initiated, student-led, non-curricular clubs on school campuses in Alabama and across the nation.
