Prayer for Oscar

Almighty God

You alone know the extent of the burden borne by Oscar, and how profoundly the pain and fear of a tormented past and an uncertain future, weighs on his mind. Lord, we have faith that his future is in Your hands and we pray that You will guide him swiftly to a kinder and safer place and time; a time when he will be released for good into the gentle and loving care of his family and friends once more.

Lord, while we wait for that moment, we ask that You would bolster Oscar’s strength of mind and body, and give him hope in his heart. The hope of a future full of promise and purpose. A future full of opportunity to share his special gifts with those who need him, and who are thirsty to drink from the well of human kindness within him.

Lord, we know that he has so much to give, and we long for that day when he can look forward to a future full of love, light and happiness. A day when the joy of living will be stronger than the pain of remorse. A day when a happy and fulfilling life will soften the echoes of discordant memories. A day when he has once more reached an understanding of his place, and Your purpose for him, in this world. A day of harmony and healing.

Finally Lord, while we wait impatiently for that day to come, we ask that You would remain close to Oscar through the continuing pain and isolation. When he is afraid, lonely or lost, Lord put Your comforting arms around him, soothe his aching heart, boost his trembling resolve, reassure him that he is loved, and bring him peace and rest for his soul.

Amen

This quote made me think of you, Oscar. You are growing, even if it doesn’t feel like it, and you will blossom into an even more beautiful, compassionate, caring person than you already are ♥

Rise To Greatness

Dear Oscar

I was reading this psalm last night and it felt very relevant for you right now. You too may be feeling disheartened, discouraged and dejected and therefore going through the stages that David went through. But of course you know that David came through his troubles and rose to greatness. So too will you my dear.

Psalm 3, 1-8

O Lord, how many are my foes!
Many are rising against me;
many are saying of my soul,
there is no salvation for him in God.
But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord,
and he answered me from his holy hill.
I lay down and slept;
I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
who have set themselves against me all around.
Arise, O Lord!
Save me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
you break the teeth of the wicked.
Salvation belongs to the Lord;
your blessing be on your people!

With love as always

from Sally
