My wife and I have been going through foster care training through Arrow Child and Family Ministries, and Father’s Day has given me such an awareness of the fatherless today. I am praying that God would raise up the church in Austin to serve the 500 children in the foster care system, and that the church in Texas would adopt the nearly 28,000 orphans in our state. Globally, there are an estimated 143 million orphans, and approximately 2 billion Christians – let’s get behind James 1:27.
I’m also praying for friends who are waiting on adoptions, that God would give them perseverance, encouragement, and hope as they wait for their children to come home, as well as friends who have just adopted, that God would supply all their needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Join me in praying for the fatherless today!
