In this darkest time of Oscar’s life, the staff at the Compassion center surrounded his family with prayers and resources. As his mother sought additional medical resources and a second opinion, Oscar’s teachers and friends at the center began holding prayer meetings.
Oscar’s mother credits those prayers with the next thing that happened.
“My mom and I went to pick up the results of the new tests, and the doctor was so surprised,” says Oscar. “Nothing was there. We even did the tests again, but still nothing. It was a miracle.” It was only later that Oscar’s mother told him her prayers. While little Oscar had fervently prayed ‘God, heal me,’ his mother’s prayers had been different.
She prayed for God’s will. If it was God’s will to take her son, then she would accept that. But if it was His will to heal Oscar, she prayed that her boy would serve God well. For the remainder of his life.
Oscar never forgot his mother’s prayer.
“It made me realize, we can’t resist God’s will,” says Oscar. “When God tells you, ‘You need to be here,’ then you need to be here!”
