As I was deciding on who I would pray for this week I thought of the children who are running out of time. And then my mind turned to one of my friends at school. She has recently graduated with her Masters of Divinity and has returned to school to earn her Masters of Arts. She is a lot of fun to be around, she loves God, and is passionate about ministering to those with special needs. She just so happens to have Cerebral Palsy herself.
There are kids who are waiting to be adopted who also have CP. They have big dreams and unlike my friend they might never get the chance to fulfill them. These kids wait for families. Some of them age out as young as fourteen, others have until they are sixteen. These teenagers need families and time is running out.
Would you pray with me that families will step forward and give these kids a chance at a family? That they will have the support that they need? The love they deserve? A hope of working towards their dreams?
Thank you for the beautiful faces of the children in these pictures. Some of these photographs are years old but that doesn’t change the need that they have for families.
Lord, their time is running out. Please don’t let them fall away without a chance of having a family. Please bring forward families from across the globe to step forward and bring these children home. May they be made sons and daughters.
I pray that they will be given the opportunity to be all that they can be. That they may get the therapy that they need to navigate this world and make a difference. That they will put a bright spark in this world with their love, determination, and life.
May your will be done. May your name be known through these children’s lives. May you show them love through their families.
For your kingdom, I pray,
