Today we pray for…

Attendees: Michele, Shari, Cristy, Gina, and Julie

May these women trust in the Lord with all their hearts and lean not unto their own understanding; in all their ways acknowledge Him and He will make their paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Adoption is a beautiful, complex thing. Lord, we pray for abundant insight, grace, love, perseverance, and emotional energy as the women, their husbands, and sometimes biological children, embrace a new member (and in some cases sibling sets) into the family. We pray for healing of wounds, emotional attachment, a deep sense of being loved for these children, and unity in their family. May each become Your child.

Many of the attendees home school their children. (Lord, instill these students with a love of learning that will fill the gaps that may occur in the curriculum.) Juggling multiple ages, various learning styles, and sometimes learning disabilities—while having the cultural (and ministry) need to be hospitable and available—is a daunting task. Balance between family and ministry roles is a continual area of tension. Father, grant them an abundance of grace, humor, wisdom, perseverance, and strength. In Jesus Name, Amen.
