Prayer for Adoptions



There's a whole invisible world that gathers under the category of the international adoption blog community. I have made friends here, most that I have never met in real life (yet!). Tomorrow, some of the people in that group are joining hands and prayers for children who just need to come home. Please consider joining with us by praying and fasting tomorrow for our little girl and others (you can read their stories here).

For us, with the recent closing of Rwanda to any new adoptions, we don't have a good grasp on the timeline of how long it will take for those of us who are currently waiting. Please pray with us that the people in charge of Rwandan adoptions would be able to move quickly through the stack of dossiers that represent families and open arms. Pray for the children who are waiting to be united with their families. Pray for the sisters who run the orphanage where these children live. Pray for everyone involved to be and do what they need to be and do. I know this is vague - it needs to be. You can go here for a little more information, but that's about all I've got.

Thank you for praying tomorrow. May God move mightily and may we see many doors swing open and many kids go home.

Praying that God would work a miracle and bring your little one and the others waiting home. God, move in Rwanda and do a work only you can do. Speed up the paperwork process. I ask for an encouragement for those families waiting. Give them hope in you while they wait.

Allie, praying for you and the other families waiting on this unknown timeline. I have been following your journey and cannot wait to celebrate when we hear of the homecoming of your sweet one. Praying that you experience peace in this waiting period. Also praying for the children at Home of Hope and their faithful caregivers.

Stopping over from Linny's blog..praying and fasting with you today that the process moves without big delays so you can get your little girl home, that the doors open in this country again, that while they are shut, He leads people there to help His children there in other ways. God bless, Jennifer
