21 year old American, Otto Warmbier is held in prison in North Korea, and has been sentenced to 15 years hard labor for allegedly attempting to steal a paper banner. I don't know this young man, but I'm certain he is, at the very least, scared and lonely.
Please pray with me, with all your heart, for this young man and his family. Pray he doesn't lose faith. Pray that even in isolation and despite what evil doers may say, his heart knows God is with him, and through lies and coercion, God is the truth, and God will not leave him.
God, give Otto the strength to endure this burden. And give him the strength to heal from the imminent psychological wounds, and potential physical wounds he will suffer from his captivity.
Please pray that Otto knows that WE are there and will support him with love. Pray he knows we will not forget him, we will not give up on him. Pray that if there is anyone who can help get him home that God speaks to them to move them to action.
And finally, please pray for all those on social media, who fill their page with mean and hateful comments, to find compassion in their hearts and know that God alone is our judge.
May we all live with love in our hearts. In Jesus' name.
