Prayers for someone I met
« on: March 10, 2006, 02:16:28 AM »
Ok, this may sound like a prank, or something similar, but I assure you, that it is not.

Anyways, I met an interesting character. I can't tell if it was drugs, or just that he was very decieved and delusional, or some combination of the two, but I think he really needs prayer. From what I could gather from his mostly incoherant word strings, is that he can't distinguish reality from fiction. He honestly thinks he is Noletari, the great grandson of Aragorn. Apparently he was choked from 5 feet away when he was 10 by Elrond, and he has had encounters, what he calls "flashbacks" to the Lord of the Rings world. He uses reality and LOTR interchangeably, at random, at least what I could tell of it, speaking of Satan and Eru. Just now, he may have let up a bit, and I may have a name, Nathan. I'm not sure what is causing this behavior, whether it is delusions or demonic attacks, but if you could please pray for him that would be a great help.

Sorry if that's not so much to go by, I have been speaking with him for over 4 hours, and that's all I got  :(

Lord, have mercy.  

Have you ever seen the film "the Fisher King"?  That's what I thought of right away when I read your description of this fellow.

Lord, have mercy!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
