Thank you Lee. Lord please bless Lee today with an extra sense of Your presence.
I have another worrying thought. You know I recently shared with you how a man assaulted my son and he was found unconsious by the paramedics?
Well, my son has a stag do on this weekend, and he has to travel to a city two hours away. It is his friend's stag do. Will the Lord clothe my son in His armour?
In the last couple of years, my son has encountered rascist taunts and then drunken thugs coming at him with their fists. Last year my son had 21 stitches in his mouth, and then recently he sustained a head wound.
I was asked to share what happened recently. The man who threw a side punch at my son's head suffered himself. We had no idea he had suffered until my son was told at a later date. It seems the man who attacked him, he was the same man who had made rascist taunts at my son a few weeks earlier. Well, my son has been told, this man fractured his hand when he threw a side punch at my son's head. Because my son slipped backwards and knocked himself unconsious, he has no memory of what happened. He never saw the man, because he was hidden from my son, coming at him from behind.
I taught my son to forgive and pray for those who hurt us, and my son understands this is what Jesus teaches us to do. My son is not a fighter and he's a peaceful young man. Well, not only did the attacker fracture his hand, he also got the sack from his job, when his boss heard about the attack on my son. We live in a small town; very small, and news tends to travel very quickly.
I had actually asked the Lord to forgive this young attacker and bless him, as Jesus has asked us to pray this way. I could have prayed for divine retribution, but I didn't. I am just hoping, as this attacker nurses his broken hand and mourns the loss of his job, he might consider committing his life to Jesus Christ.
Let's pray he will turn to Jesus Christ. Father, we pray for the young man who has taunted my son racially and then attacked him physically. We pray Father, this young man will really consider his ways and have an opportunity to turn his life around for the better. Send Your Holy Spirit, ministering angels and Christians along his path please. Amen.
