The man in this story belonged to a group of which I am a member (the group–ostensibly for LARP/general geekery–has unfortunately taken a turn towards gender and sexual orientation issues since I first joined). While I don’t agree with his gender/political statements, it sickens me that anyone would think it’s okay to set another human being on fire. Please pray for this young man, his family, and the high school student that did this.
Father, hear our prayer for his complete healing in body, soul, and spirit, for his caregivers that they could help him well in the healing process, for all who love him, and for the kid who did this that his sins will be forgiven. Mother Mary, pray for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
