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.
From my heart
