Prayers for Bogere


Bogere Swalik is a 23 year old man from from Jinja, Uganda who was attacked with acid in early 2016.  He was attacked by a man who wanted to take away his wife.  He has been in the hospital for seven months because the wounds are deep and severe.  His whole chest was burnt and his face, arms and body are swollen.   The attack also left him blind in his left eye.

Bogere’s wife takes care of him but otherwise, no one from his home visits him at the hospital.  The CERESAV team has been helping care for him as much as possible.  Bogere needs a lot of care in terms of food because his body is swollen due to lack of food.  He only gets food from the hospital once a day and the food which the hospital provides for patients is posho and beans and this cannot help his burnt body to regain the fresh skin.  In fact, his situation is worsening every day because his whole body is swollen.  The nurses are advising him to eat a lot of food containing proteins, fat and calories, for example eggs, milk, meat, and fish to enable the wounds heal very fast but he cannot afford them.

He needs a lot of prayers because last week he almost lost his life due to too much pain and over swelling of the body and next week he will undergo a surgery which is not easy.  Therefore he is requesting everyone outside there to support him physically, psychologically and spiritually.

My name is Bongere Swaliki aged 23, I was attacked on 23 Feb 2016 by my best friend over relationship issues and my right eye was blinded.  I would like to thank everyone who has helped in terms of prayers, food donation and medical support.

    As a Christian we have many encouraging words that help us as part of our faith. When I was praying for you here in England (and for your wife) I was reminded of “He who trusts in the Lord shall renew his strength. He shall rise up as though he had eagle’s wings.” Eagles are powerful birds! Today also we were taught about the paralysed man who Jesus healed, and the great expectant faith his friends had to drag his heavy body up onto the roof & dig through the mud roof to get him to Jesus. Their faith led to a miracle and he walked! God bless you my friend.

    Dear Bongere,

    I have lifted you up in prayer. The power of God who is Love is still present and at work in your body. Please know that you are still loved by your neighbors and I hope no bitterness enslaves your body or spirit. When I am near giving up, the Spirit of the Lord reminds me of the words written by King David in Psalm 27:
    A Psalm of David.

    27 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    Whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the strength of my life;
    Of whom shall I be afraid?
    2 When the wicked came against me
    To eat up my flesh,
    My enemies and foes,
    They stumbled and fell.
    3 Though an army may encamp against me,
    My heart shall not fear;
    Though war may rise against me,
    In this I will be confident.
    4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
    That will I seek:
    That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    All the days of my life,
    To behold the beauty of the Lord,
    And to inquire in His temple.
    5 For in the time of trouble
    He shall hide me in His pavilion;
    In the secret place of His tabernacle
    He shall hide me;
    He shall set me high upon a rock.
    6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
    Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
    I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
    7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!
    Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
    8 When You said, “Seek My face,”
    My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
    9 Do not hide Your face from me;
    Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
    You have been my help;
    Do not leave me nor forsake me,
    O God of my salvation.
    10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
    Then the Lord will take care of me.
    11 Teach me Your way, O Lord,
    And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
    12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
    For false witnesses have risen against me,
    And such as breathe out violence.
    13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
    That I would see the goodness of the Lord
    In the land of the living.
    14 Wait on the Lord;
    Be of good courage,
    And He shall strengthen your heart;
    Wait, I say, on the Lord!

    Peace and Blessing to you.

    I am asking the creator to give you strength and ease the discomforts of your body. I am asking for the creator to help you heal and to help your spirit gain strength from this experience so that you can be a voice for the future to bring awareness to others. Our pains often times becomes the wisdom and teacher to heal and guide others.

    I am too far away to be able to offer you direct comfort or supply your physical needs but I have access to the God that provides all. So I will ask God with faith to not only supply all your needs physical, emotional and physical but to give you healing of mind and body.
