Since I was in a similar boat Justin was regarding intellectual roadblocks (I briefly brought this up with him earlier) that limited my own faith and coming to find the Lord, I wanted to pray for him that he will find solace in the Lord and remain strong.

Dear Lord,

Please embrace your servant who struggles from time to time with doubt and uncertainty, lest him seek by your guidance in your truth and mercy for O' are thou mericful and ever wise! Heal the heartbreak and hurt, if he suffers, that impedes his union with you O' Lord. Watch over him and give him your love, protect him from high above. Let him find rest in you by your wisdom and to grow closer to you with his thoughts.

Lord have mercy.

I hope this prayer isn't inappropriate.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord have mercy!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
I'll take you for who you are if you take me for everything.

Indeed, Lord Jesus Christ, light the way for your servant Justin... that he may know that he truly is your servant.

Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.

Strengthen O Lord the work of Your hands(Is 19:25)

I'd like to also extend this prayer to Dnarmist.

Lord, have mercy on both Justin and Dnarmist, and may God bless both of you in your struggles.
