A Prayer for Those Waiting/Preparing to Adopt a Child

Brian and Lisa are ready for a child. Like many couples they expected to bring a boy or girl into the world in the conventional way. That didn’t happen. Now, some years later they’ve embraced the option of adoption and they’re running full speed into process. It’s a long, grueling, costly, emotionally dangerous quest.

The cost of adoption is staggering.  Recognizing that their friends and family want deeply to be part of their adventure, Brian and Lisa invited them to help. This month they held a monster garage sale packed full of donated goods. Amazingly, they raised more than $4,000. Jesus once said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” The friends and family who have invested their “treasures” with Brian and Lisa have also naturally invested their hearts as well. The coming adoption has become an extended family affair!

Another way we can lend a hand to those seeking to adopt is to commit to pray for them. That too is a treasure we can invest. We can offer our spiritual blessing, asking for provision, protection, and the perfect match. Everyone reading this probably knows some family seeking to adopt a child. God loves adoption and he loves to answer prayers to favor the process.

“God, you do love adoption. You’ve adopted us into your family, giving us all rights and privileges of family. We are heirs and co-heirs with Jesus of all your treasures. We pray today for those seeking to adopt a child. Many children in the world do not have mothers and fathers. Many men and women do not have children. God, bring them together. Create the perfect match. Provide resources. Provide perfect timing. Give endurance and emotional strength through the grinding details. Give wisdom for them to anticipate ahead how to prepare practically for the coming change. Strengthen their marriage ahead of this coming gift. Heal any past disappointment. Parental love is nature. Adoptive parental love has to be SUPERnatural. Give a miracle of love and bonding. May nothing stand in the way of you accomplishing a completion of this match – child to parent. In Jesus!”

    GOD always help to them who remember Him. It is really an adorable act of adopting a baby in the family. For those who are yet to have a baby please try to remember the divine, He will always help in the end. But if you can adopt and make a child happy then this will be always remembered in the heart of GOD.

    Please say a prayer for my husband, Stan, and me. We are waiting to hear this coming week if we have been approved to move forward with the adoption of a little girl from Bulgaria named Anika. Please pray that the agency’s decision is that we can become Anika’s parents, that little Anika comes home to us, and for our strength to endure the process. God’s will be done. Thank you.
