Zaki

Since June 2015 my youngest brother has been praying for a little boy named Zaki. (http://reecesrainbow.org/76448/zaki ). I did a small post about it when Buttons began to pray for him ( https://aprayerforalife.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/zaki-and-buttons/ ). Since then Buttons and Zaki have grown a lot. Unfortunately there is no new picture of Zaki or any update but a lot of time has passed and he is still waiting.

Buttons prays for Zaki every night without fail and asks me if he has been adopted yet. It hurts me to tell him no, Zaki isn’t adopted. The heartbreak on Button’s face every time I tell him is gut-wrenching. One time he even announced that when he grew up he would adopt Zaki himself.

Zaki was born in May of 2009 which makes him not even a month younger than Buttons. I love having my little brother around and thinking of him without a family (like he was but a few years ago) troubles my heart because I know that there are other kids out there who are still waiting. Would you please pray with me that Zaki will not have to wait much longer and that I can tell my brother that the boy he prays for is going to have a family as well?

 

Dear Lord,

Thank You for Zaki. Thank You that Buttons has a heart for other kids like him. Thank You that Buttons was adopted and that I get to call him ‘brother’.

Please answer my brother’s prayer and bring forward a family for Zaki. Help them to love him and care for him, to show him the love of a family. I pray that they will help him through his medical needs and help him to be all that he can be.

May Your will be done,

Amen

 

 

Gunther

Gunther started his life off in a hard way. At approximately three days old this little guy was found abandoned and brought to an orphanage (2011), shortly after he received surgery forĀ  his anal atresia.Gunther was also diagnosed with a congenital heart defect but he has not received any surgery, medicine, or treatment for it and the orphanage that he is at has considered to have healed itself.

Gunther also does not receive treatment for his scoliosis but he can still walk, run, and dance! It is also said that he likes to play with other kids. This adorable little boy also has a scar on his face from treatment for a hemangioma. It is reported that Gunther has normal intelligence, though, he has been described as being clever.gunther-joh1-248x300

Gunther has a page on Reece’s Rainbow and I would love it if you would join me in praying for him. http://reecesrainbow.org/100715/gunther

Dear Lord,

Thank you for Gunther. Thank you for his smile. Thank you for creating him in Your image. I pray that You will bring forward a family who will love him and support him. That this family will help him to get any medical treatment that he requires.

Please look after Gunther as he waits for a family. Please keep the smile on his face despite the hardships that he may face. Please use him to shine a light in many people’s lives. Please use him to bless others. I pray that You will be known through the awesome works that You will do in his life.

I pray for Your protection and blessing over this wonderful boy,

In Your name I pray,

Amen.

Three awesome kids!!!

These three kids are on Reece’s rainbow and I believe that they live in Taiwan. Though I did not meet them I was privileged enough to visit their AMAZING country! It is my prayer that they will find families to love them, teach them, and care for and about them for the rest of their lives!!!

Merlin! This little guy was born October 2007. Unfortunately he was hospitalized for a long period of time after he was born. He lived with his birth mother until January 2010 but is now living in an orphanage. He receives therapy in his orphanage (Yay!). Merlin is diagnosed with moderate intellectual deficiency and congenital cardio disease.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for Heather, Cullen, and Merlin.

Thank you for Taiwan and the people there and that these three awesome kiddos are apart of Taiwan itself.

I pray that You will provide families for these three that will love them and care for them through their medical needs and through their lives. I pray that they will encourage them and help them to be the best that they can be.

Lord, may You be with these kids and let them know that You love them and cherish them and that they mean everything to You because You created them and You love them with Your whole heart.

Lord, please help us to love the people that You have placed in our lives the way You love Heather, Cullen, and Merlin.

For Your glory and Your kingdom, I pray.

Amen.

Zaki and Buttons

My little brother Buttons is SUPER excited to be praying for a little boy named Zaki.

   
 

Dear Lord,

Thank you for Zaki. Thank you that he has been able to have his heart surgery. 

I thank you that Buttons can pray for a little boy that is six like him. I pray that you will give him a heart for this little boy that was like him, living in an orphanage, and that he would desire for Zaki to have a family just like him.

I pray that you will bring a family forward to adopt Zaki and bring him into their family as a son and a brother. I pray that they will help him through any further surgeries he may need for his heart and will be able to get him the glasses he needs for his eyes.

Thank you so much for Zaki and his love to play games!

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
