Hello, dear friends. Things have continued to be sloooooow on the adoption front. And it is doing a number on my heart. I want to see God move mountains! So I am going to ask you to join with us is a specific time of prayer this coming weekend. We would love for you to partner with us in the following way:
At 11:30 A.M. (CST) on Saturday, January 25, we invite you to pause with us and take 15 minutes to pray for the country of Ethiopia, for international adoption and for our family.
Prayer focuses (foci?) :
-For Ethiopian adoption officials, that God would soften their hearts and that they would move with a true sense of urgency to place children with their waiting families.
-For the children waiting to be matched, that God would protect them and let them know that they are loved and prayed for.
-For the waiting list this month, that referrals would go out before the end of January. I will be specifically praying for nine referrals before February 1.
-For waiting families, that God would give us the strength and faith we so deeply and desperately need.
-For our children, that God would somehow let them know that we love them and are trying so hard to get to them.
-For the birth parents of our children, that God would give them comfort in knowing that the children they brought into this world will always be loved and that they, the parents, will always be held in a place of honor in our home.
We believe in the power of prayer. And we would love for you to be a part of our plea to God this coming weekend. He listens when we cry out to Him, so let's cry together and loudly. Let's fall before the throne of God Almighty and ask Him to do something only He can do.
If you will be joining us in prayer on Saturday, please let us know. We would love to know about you and be able to thank God for you. You can leave a comment below or on Facebook, or you can email us.
