I’m back! Finishing up my Masters degree has been a challenge but I am finally at the end of it. Hopefully this will allow for more consistent updates.
You may be wondering why I have a picture of one of the best superheros ever at the top of the page (Ok, I admit it. I love DCU and Nightwing is at the top of my list of my all time favorite characters). The young man that I am going to pray for today is Grayson. Seeing his name reminded me of Richard “Dick” Grayson aka the first Robin and then later Nightwing (he has also been Batman when Bruce Wayne was unable to be located). All that to say, this character, who lost his parents at a young age, became a hero, a leader, a protector of the innocent.
I believe that every kid has the potential to be a hero. It might look different for each kid but I think that they can change the world. Changing the world happens in different ways. It can be through a change in reality for a group of people or it can be a change for a single person. For that person the world is changed; their outlook has changed and hope can become tangible. We each have a role in changing the world, fighting for justice, and bringing hope into someone’s life.
It is my hope that Grayson will have a family to call his own. A family that will support him and encourage him. A family that will help him be a hero!
Grayson was born in 2008 in the People’s Republic of China. He has congenital heart defects and has had three surgeries to date. He is described as being positive, active, smart, respectful, and loving. He attends school and the orphanage and is said to be doing well. https://reecesrainbow.org/124757/grayson-2
Will you pray for him with me?
Thank you for Grayson. Thank you for the interactions and impact that he has. I pray that he will grow into a strong young man who brings hope to others as you will bring him hope.
May those who care and teach for him show him love and care. May they have patience and the knowledge how to help Grayson and the others that they teach and care for.
I pray for the family that will open up their family to him and welcome him in as a beloved child. May you prepare their hearts and minds as you prepare Grayson’s.
Thank you for the grace and strength that you give to each one of us. May we participate with you as you care and love for people. May we participate in changing the world for one person and for all people. May your will be done and your love be known.
