A Day for Prayer

I have this heavy burden on my heart today to pray for our daughter.  I don't know what's going on in her life right now, or even if she's born yet, but I can't shake this feeling (nor do I want to!) that something is going on in Rwanda today in our baby's world.

Maybe today is the day she's being born.
Or maybe today, her birth mother is making the excruciating decision to take her to HOH Orphanage.
Or maybe she's already there, fighting off an illness.
Or maybe she just needs some extra love today, and God wants to let us be a part in providing it for her, by asking Him to provide it for her.

Will you pray for her today?  And for her birth family?  Thank you so much for lifting her up today with us.

Jeremy sent me these verses this morning in an email (before I told him of my call to prayer).  He said they were on his heart today.

I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.'  Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth... (Is 43:6)

See, they will come from afar - some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan. (Is 49:12)

Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm. (Is 60:4)

I've followed your blog for quite some time and am truly excited for all the love your family will be bringing this baby in Rwanda soon! Your family (including those in Rwanda) will definitely be on my mind and in my prayers!

Absolutely in prayer with you today for God to surround this baby with His love and shield of protection.

Can't wait to hold my granddaughter in my arms!
