    I have a severely autistic brother who can't talk much, but says certain words... even words who shouldn't be saying, but I digress. He is still very much loved in my family and I believe he will be free of it as God has healed me of things and I believe God doesn't play favorites (Not a respecter of persons).

    This is not going to be as hard as everyone says.

    First, pray for yourself. Ask God to use you.
    Ask Him to tell you when to speak,
    ask Him to give you the words that you need to use,
    and ask Him to help you open your mouth to speak those words.

    Second, pray for your nephew.
    Ask God to help him get a good night's sleep beforehand.
    Ask God to prepare his heart to receive, his mind to believe.
    And finally, ask God to give him joy at the news which he will hear.

    May God bless you, and fill you with joy. :crossrc:

    Greetings SmithyGCN,
    I couldn't agree more. There are many elements to keep close to the top of our minds when reaching out to others to join our flock, but among the most important to note is that the Lord does not judge when extending His blessings. Grace and joy of the Gospel are open to everyone, in fact Jesus made a particular effort to reach out to the marginalized and those who were left out of the mainstream.
