There are times when we blind to the atrocities to the world and to the needs and cares for others. While there are people in the world who lack physical sight it is often those of us who can see that are blind. Each of us may be blind to a different aspect of reality, be it our own selfishness, the plight of a neighbor, or the mindset of our cultural group.
It is my belief and hope that as we open ourselves up to Christ and direct ourselves to God that our eyes will be open to others. May we be like Christ in championing the downtrodden. May we allow our eyes to be opened to the injustices of the world and participate in the renewing of creation, both humanity and nature, as we are renewed by the power of the Spirit.
I rejoice that someone could see the neglect and under-stimulation that Georgie was experiencing in his old orphanage. It was because it was seen that action could be made in his new environment, action that has allowed him to radically develop since he was relocated in April. Born in 2014 this sweet and gentle boy still has a long way to go.
Though being functionally blind with very little light perception I hope that he will never be blind in the ways that we often are. I pray that he will not only receive the direction and care that he sorely needs to continue developing but he will also be exampled care and compassion. An example that will help him to grow into a man of purpose and hope for others. A child of God that allows his heart and mind to be open to others in this world.
Would you pray for Georgie with me?
Thank you for Georgie, thank you for his sweet and social nature. I pray that it will continue to develop so that he might use it for the care of others and development of himself.
I thank you that he is in a better environment where he can develop and grow stronger. May his caregivers continue to provide the care he needs. Please give them the wisdom and patience that they need to care for Georgie and the other children that they are responsible for.
Please bring a family forward to call Georgie their son. May they show him love and compassion, steadfastness in the face of trial, and a desire to stand with those in need. May they learn from Georgie as much as I pray he learns from them.
I pray that you may be present in their midst. Strengthening and upholding; encouraging them to develop in a way that is honouring and uplifting to you and others. Thank you for this little boy, may he receive the love, support, and care that every child should have.
In your name I pray,
